This post is here to give you an inside scope on the pages to follow and places to be to enjoy the best of being an otaku in Nairobi.

Adventures in Nairobi: Kentaro & Natsuki | Part One

This last half of 2015 has been quite exciting for The Wondercores, what with launching the blog and Mbithe going on an amazing trip to Japan which, just in case you haven’t yet, can start reading about here. But, I should warn you, her travelogue will make you feel as if she carried you along with her in her suitcase. 😀 One of the things that I really enjoyed about her travelogue is being able to see that bit of Japan through her eyes and share in her excitement and thrilling adventures, but most of all, her general view of Japan after and during her trip; all of which made me wonder about the perception of Kenya and Kenyans that travellers have before, during and after their visit here.
