Best Japanese Drugstore Beauty Products + Where To Buy!

This post is looooong overdue! Two of the most common questions I get asked is where to buy beauty products in Japan and which ones I recommend, so I finally made a video about it!

Every trip I always buy a mix of Japanese, Korean and western beauty products, because there are just soooooo many brands and Japan-exclusive items that I just can’t get in Australia. Plus, they're A-MAZING. All an excuse to visit more often 😜

HUGE Japan Shopping Haul 2019 + Last Day In Tokyo! | Solo Travel Japan Vlog

From fashion and beauty, to anime goodies and random items, I bought a LOT during my two week trip to Japan. And when I say a LOT, I mean I ended up having to pay $100+ in luggage overweight fees at the airport lololololol

To everyone who followed along on my sixth trip to Japan, thank you SO much! I've loved getting to know you through the comments and chatting about all things Japan with you, and even though this is the last vlog for this season of #hijessicaanneinjapan, there are still heaps of Japan videos on the way (including a giveaway - stay tuned)!

If there are any travel topics you'd like me to cover in a future vid, let me know in the comments below. For now, I'll catch you in the next video! ✨

A Day Trip To Tokyo's Coastal Town, Kamakura! | Solo Travel Japan Vlog

If you're looking for an easy little escape from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, just one hour away is the gorgeous coastal town of Kamakura!

Full of Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples to explore (and LOTS of delicious street food stalls to visit on the way!), Kamakura is a quick and culture-filled day trip spot. 

After six visits to Japan, visiting this seaside city was heavily underlined on my to-travel-to list, and I finally made that a reality for #hijessicanneinjapan season 3! And spoiler alert, it was 100% as lovely to visit as everyone says it is.

Thrifting, Cafes & Karaoke In Shimokitazawa, Tokyo! | Solo Travel Japan Vlog

Welcome back to Tokyo's hipster town of Shimokitazawa!

After visiting this super trendy area of Tokyo - known for thrift stores and great cafes - in season two of #hijessicaanneinjapan, I 100% couldn't resist coming back again. 

But this time, I brought Sammie (IG: @twinbuns) and Jemma (IG: @jemma_mae_) along with me for an amazing day out vintage shopping, arcade hopping and singing our little lungs out at karaoke! 

And as much as I'm a tried and true fan of solo travelling, there are just some activities in Japan that are much more fun with friends - and this day was a LOT of fun!
