I got a chance to study in Japan for a year. I am glad that I took the chance right when I saw it. I would regret if I didn't.
Japan! Here I have fun, here I laugh, here I cry, here I love and be loved.
This is an overview of my year in Japan. For more details of my journeys, links will be attached in captions of photos.
Let's start!

Shibuya Nonbei Tokyo-to, Japan

Shibuya Nonbei(東京都, 日本)|Linh in Japan (to be updated)(Linh Tranさん)

We went to Nonbei Yokocho to have some drink in a very small bar. The best thing is that all the bars are very small, and can not have more than 10 customers. You can find any type of bar here from traditional Japanese bar where the owner can't speak English and serve yaki soba or udon right in front of you, to a very hipster bar with loud music,... In some bars which open till late and have music you need to pay the extra fee other than your drinks. It's not a pricey places and you should come once when you're in Shibuya.
Drink: 500-1000yen
Food: 500-1200yen
