*~Vamps and Hyper Japan~*
FRIDAY

Woke up early of course and was ready for hours. My bus came early though so good thing I was ready lol.
On the train basically hyped myself up lol. Got to London like 12 and got across city, checked into hotel etc and left just after 1 (I didn't have my crutch fyi). Just as I arrived so did the tourbus.

Sneaky assholes, when everyone was staring at the bus, they ran in the other way! Bastards! Since they were in, I went back to hotel (right opposite fyi). Like 3 I went back to wait for early entry and was sent away. I legit had NOTHING to do.
Just after 6 I said fuck it and went over anyway. Just after me, another whole family came for early entry too. After like 10 mins, they let us in.
Apocalyptica like waled right by us and said hi and I didn't even know was them till they left and woman started spazzing xD
Went upstairs finally and grabbed a seat at the front. A few mins later, a girl came sat beside me called Natsuda. She was a Vamps fan too so we spazzed over them (some other JRock too but mostly Vamps xD). We took a few selfies.

We also added each other on Line so yay! Random concert friends ftw!
So Vamps came on and we were screaming like fangirls and dancing etc. Like the last song, we got yelled at for dancing. It's a fucking rock concert! Anyway, we had danced to most so it was okay lol. A break of course Then Apocalypica and our change from hyper to unenthused was awesome! To be fair, if Vamps hadn't just been on, I'd think they were okay but too hyped lol. At the end Vamps came out did that song with them. We knew we'd get yelled at for dancing again but we still squealed and it was epic!
At the end, Natsuda had to run for her bus while I slowly made my way to merch. Shit though, like ONE Vamps CD I already had, no shirt or anything.
Anyway like 11 got back but too wired to sleep for hours!

SATURDAY

Woke up so much earlier than I meant and started getting ready like 7. Left at 8 and grabbed some breakfast from the garage. I got across the city just after 9. I was waiting upstairs and Laura was downstairs so we didn't find each other for like 15 mins. Anyway, we did eventually and made our way to Tobacco Dock!
When we got there, Laura had to check her bags like downstairs (wtf). We grabbed a map and began to wander around. We decided to check the m&g area and they told us Wing Works would be there later, hi hyper Hana xD We scouted out where the live stage is just so we'd know.
After that we went to the bit opposite which had like more stalls. Mostly we were just looking but then I found a Wing Works shirt at JP Books xD I had my ADAMS shirt but I thought Wing Works might be more appropriate xD We found a "kawaii" stall and I bought kitty ears for all SuG xD We found JPU records so I bought Okamotos, Myv and a shitload of TMR. They also gave me some free stuff.
After our shopping, we found seats and did selfie and a pic of my CDs xD

When we were done, we went downstairs. We went slowly through some shops and I got badges, "I <3 yuri" and "I <3 JPop". We found a bathroom so I changed into my Wing Works lol. Laura went to the clokroom and shoved my stuff in her bag.
It was after 12 by now so we went for food search. I found bubble tea and spazzed! I got gyoza and found a seat while Laura searched for gluten-free. She found some teriyaki finally. After we ate, we went back up to live stage to watch the fashion show. It wasn't that good tbh. After, we went into the kimono store and looked. We went to the candy store but I didn't buy much coz I was running low on money.
We had to leave for 45 mins after so we just like sat at the bus stop down the street for a while then queued to get back in.
We went to the live stage and watched a dance show by a group called Shinobi Try which was really cool!

They did m&g after so we ran to meet them randomly lol. After we just walked around again and I saw some more Wing Works CDs so I bought one! We walked some more and went to queue at the live stage. The guy wouldn't let us in until Ladybaby finished but that's okay. We were talking to him and Laura tried to bribe him with chocolate. He wouldn't take it but told us a secret way in lol.
By the time we got there, Ladybaby had just finished anyway so people were leaving and we grabbed seats at the front!
Lacroix Despheres were on and they were pretty cool (plus one of the girls was cute xD). If they're in London again I think I'll go.

I actually spent most of the show dancing at the barrier but I needed a seat at the end. I would have gone to meet them but Wing Works xD I left my bags and crutch with Laura and went to grab a place at the barrier front centre! My feet hurt but not sitting at all for him xD I got camera happy xD

I have over 30 total xD Anyway after we ran to m&g. Laura bought a CD she got signed and gave to me and a cheki she got signed for herself. She hadn't known his music previously and he was so nice to her, I was like proud mummy! I was like "omedetou" and he's like "arigatou" and I was like "kakkoi" and he was like "Eh? Majii de?"

He wore my kitty ears!
Well after that we were tired so we got our bags and went back. There's a Subway sandwiches near our hotel so Laura got food and I got a fucking drink! We got back but of course didn't sleep for ages xD

SUNDAY

Actually calmer. We got up, breakfast etc and left like 9. At the ATM, I realised I'd left my purse lol so we had to go back. It only lost us like 20 mins though, we still got there like 10-10:30. I went into a shop selling like random trinkets to get Anna and Kotsu gifts. We went to candy store after which was hella crowded and I got like mochi, ramune and taiyaki.
I was hella embarassed coz I knocked over a display of badges at the counter and I felt so bad the guy gave me one to show no hard feelings. Me and Laura were joking I should knock stuff over at JPU try score a free CD xD There was like a display of art and stalls with handcrafts called Miyabi we looked at but the crafts were hella expensive. The art was nice though.

We found a free sake tasting. I don't really like sake but Laura had never tried it so I dragged her in lol. After we found seats to drink our ramune and eat our candy. The ramune was defeating us and when Laura got it she's like "It's going in I can feel it!" and I lost it xDDDDDD
After we ate we went into the live stage to watch hot dog eating contest because xD It was sorta funny.

After, we got lunch. I found a stall with yakitori and fried gyoza beside the stall where the gluten-free was. After, I went to get bubble tea of course. We walked by the maid cafe and I was drooling, Laura was like "you wanna go in, don't you?" like "let's be honest, I wanna go for one reason" Although I DID point out I'd go with her if it was guys. So we went in and got cheki with a maid.

After, we went back up and found more stalls, I got a very appropriate shirt "All the best stuff comes from Japan" xD I also got Millie like a wooden plaque and got them to write "beauyiful niece" in Japanese. We went back to JPU and I found an Arisu CD so I freaked xD I actually already have it so I bought it and gave it to Laura xD
We left and went back, walking around Shepherds Bush a little. Still hate that place but not quite so bad with a friend. We went into MacDonald's and again she got food and I got drink. There was a Sainsbury's close so we went so she could buy junk to read on the train and we both got chocolate. We went back to the hotel after and like collapsed xD

This is all my merch:
