Lekkere zondag in Leiden: Japanmarkt and all that relaxation

Sounds as if I am free of deadlines and dues, but I could not stop the urge for another little trip to Leiden for the Japanese market and everything awesome in Leiden.

Pretty street

So yes. I didn’t have enough cash, so I just walked around to find an ATM and also to check out Leiden a bit more.

Beautiful

I got lost. Again. I get lost in Leiden every single time I go there. Maybe this city just loves me and doesn’t want me to leave quickly.

Always nice to have some food and drinks… as written in the last post.

俳句/はいく/Haiku on the wall

One day, I’ll learn Japanese very hard and understand this line of Haiku one day!

It would be nice to have one Japanese ‘bonsai’ at home.

Japanese calligraphy and decorations

I see so many people in kimono today. This one is the best!Sadly I didn’t buy anything, for the sake of that I will probably go to Japan with my family in summer. I’m really in love with Japanese culture and everything; Japanmarkt on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Leiden is the best thing to do before exams and essays come up. Good luck everyone!
