Direct Link to video

Published on May 26, 2017

A Vlog something I've been wanting to talk about. This is a journey through the first time I ever saw Anime... waaaaaay back in the 1970's.  I chronicle what I saw and how I saw it in hopes others who never knew of the history in the 1970's could learn how good you have it now. HA!

5 Tips for traveling to Japan

Tokyo Bay from Odaiba Island - Tokyo Japan - 2015 ©Arsenette

Just a quick post to let you know of an article that I wrote on the Odigo Travel website. I've written there before in the past but never wrote an update on this site to let you know about it.  If you are interested in reading it, you can find the article titled "5 Tips for traveling to Japan". In the coming days I'll do a video on what I wrote on my YouTube channel. I'll update this page with it once it's completed.  Hope you like it as I had a lot of fun writing it!
