Kira explores Tokyo

Kira's wish to go to Japan

“ The wish experience had a big impact on me... I really loved it. ”


- Kira

Kira has always loved traveling. When it came to her choice of wish, she wanted to go to Japan because she is fascinated with the food, fashion and architecture.

Her trip began with a tour of some of Tokyo’s top temples, gardens and shopping areas. Kira explored the Meji Shrine and Asakusa Temple, and finished the day shopping on Nakamise Street, a commercial hotspot. The next day, Kira ventured to Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi to take in Japan’s beautiful scenery and took a bullet train back to Tokyo.

Kira was treated to a makeover and photoshoot at the Moshi Moshi Kimono Salon where she was dressed in Harajuku-style kimonos and other clothing. She was excited to be dressed in a fashion style that she truly admires.

As a self-proclaimed “roller coaster junkie,” Kira could not miss a trip to Fuji-Q theme park, home to the some of the world’s tallest and fastest coasters. Of course, she also made sure to eat plenty of he favorite food, sushi, while in Japan.

“The wish experience had a big impact on me,” Kira said. “It made me see a whole new amazing place and culture. I really loved it.”
