My Travel Story

Hi everyone, my name is Raechelle Ufana, 25 years old. I love anime and japan so much since I was grade schooler. I’m a very fanatic in Japanese culture and my childhood dream is to go to Japan. It’s not just because I love anime, I just love Japan so much that I even learned Japanese language on my own, self-study. I know I’m not that fluent but I’m still learning. When I reached college, I tried to do cosplay. It was really fun. I remembered I used to save my allowance to buy some materials for my own props. I don’t want to ask money from my parents for my wants and hobbies.  I became a registered nurse in Philippines but salary isn’t enough and so I flew to USA to study more and get a better job. But as time flies I still dreaming to visit Japan while I’m still young and so I could cosplay any young character. Hoping this 2018 would give me an opportunity to celebrate my birthday this coming March in Japan and to cosplay, if not I wish my dreams will come true next year.

I’m planning to visit the Wisteria Flower Tunnel in Kitakyushu, Blue Flower Field in Hitachi, Fushimi Inari-taisha and Kinkaku-ji both in Kyoto, Tokyo Disneyland, Tokyo Tower, Ghibli Museum, and Bamboo Garden in Hokokuji Temple, Harajuku and Akihabara. If only I could visit all those places would really be great. I’m also planning to cosplay Dark Magician Girl from Yu-Gi-Oh or my own character in Pokemon Go as I travel places in Japan. You may suggest a character for me to cosplay too. It would be great if some of you I might meet in Japan. The money from this fundraising would go for my trip, my stay, food, props and costumes.

I would be trying to learn more on blogging and so I could post my trip and update my whole experience in Japan. I hope you could help me make this dream come true. Thank you for taking the time to read and I’m really hoping you could help me reach my dream.  Once again, thank you so much and may God bless you all. ^__^
