Hello again! While the previous entry here gave you the Hana Yori Dango/Hana Nochi Hare locations to see around Shibuya, Harajuku and Setagaya, now let me put them in workable "food walk" itinerary so that you can at least go around them in a day before I proceed with the rest of the Shinjuku areas and eventually Tokyo Station/Odaiba areas.
Let's say your starting point is Shibuya Station → Go get some crepes at Galletoria → Proceed to Setagaya areas and get a kakigori at Wa Kitchen Kanna → VIsit Tsukushi's workplace at Tsuruya Yoshinobu → Go to Harajuku and walk down the Omotesando Road and look for that Chloe Store where Airi got her goods (and visit the Johnny's Shop to get Arashi/King & Prince/any of your Johnny's bias official shop photos if you like) → Get some smiley doughnuts at Good Town Doughnuts and Coffee → and to end the day, cap it with an evening visit to Ebisu Garden Place.( Read more... )
Hello everyone! I know it's been a long overdue post but I'll be finishing this in batches of locations (Central Tokyo, Western Tokyo and Osaka, Kyoto other prefectures) in consideration of your itinerary planning. I know how hard it is to cram places you want to visit in a single place so I thought it would be just logical to group those filming locations that are at least in the same area within each other or in the same train lines (JR Yamanote/ Tokyo Metro/Toei Subway etc). I'll be adding Google Maps and pictures as well to guide you in your journey. I'll be updating this post once in a while so please stay tune at @_potatocarrot_ twitter acount for additions and changes.( Read more... )
Feel free to comment on the font size and typeface of the subs if it's okay for you all or should I improve them. It's my first time to handle this kind of project so I appreciate any kind of feedback from anyone. :)

I got this from a fanfic blog of a Japanese Mao and Jun fan. I tried my best to capture the essence of the writing through my translation but I'll be very honest, the fan fiction's words are more powerful when you read them in Japanese. The words pierce your heart straight through. If you can read Japanese, try to give it a go first before reading my translation.

I know it's been a long time since I got a translation posted in here. With that, I am really sorry.m(_ _)m
Anyways, this has been a long overdue article. Firstly, this interview is very impressive, beyond words actually. Mao-chan again impresses us with how she handles personal stuff (erm, moolah?) and gives us a peek on her daily shopping habits. Seriously, to even think of your own future and plan for it at the earliest, for sure, her future danna-sama will be a VERY lucky guy.
Oh well, enough blabbering for now. Here it goes. First part will be on money matters and the second will be about her thoughts on her acting job which will be posted later.
( Honestly there are times when I feel uneasy and uncertain about my own future )
Anyways, at last, after some thinking on our part, we decided to put up this little translation nook for all our flailing-filled read candies. I know we can't get enough of the potato and the carrot couple and their sometimes weird but love-filled antics. Let this community fill your insatiable thirst for them.
So yeah, just some reminders
