日本旅行最後一日 - 要返英國

So today was the day we fly back to UK but, we still had a morning free before heading off to the airport - well, whole afternoon really but didn't want to join the rush hour trains carrying luggage... These were the manned stations you have to go through instead of the regular gates if you want to use your JR Pass. Thing is, not all exits have...


日本旅行第九日 - 大阪, 日本橋電電街購物

We were off to Osaka today. Originally I wanted to visit Osaka Castle early morning when there should be fewer people but my friend wanted to go off to a Virtual Reality conference back in Tokyo so we decided to skip it. It was going to be a pop culture day again because we were going to head straight to Den Den Town which was basically Osakas...

日本旅行第七日 - 休息日, 火車博物館, 名古屋購物

Today was a break day for us. Originally I never planned any rest days but my friend didn't want to travel to places every single day in case it was too much of a tow so, we did our separate things today. Was probably a good idea since holidays was about relaxing and visiting places by the clock can be quite stressful. All that rushing around...


日本旅行第六日 - 奈良, 東大寺, 伏見稲荷

We were off to Nara today, Japan's very first capital city established back in 710 before it moved to Kyoto and then today's Tokyo. I was at the back of the hotel now after the room change. Don't know what the building opposite was but it had a well kept garden. Never actually seen or heard of Nara before until my friend mentioned it while I...


日本旅行第五日 - 京都, 二条城, 嵐山竹森

Our destination today was Kyoto because we wanted to see the more traditional side of Japan. Tokyo wasn't always the capital. It's a tradition for wherever the emperor dwells to become the capital and before Tokyo, it was Kyoto. Kyoto was the second capital of Japan between 794 - 1868 before Tokyo.   Early morning - well, not really...


日本旅行第四日 - 新幹線與綠色頭等車廂

Today we were going to move base to Nagoya because it was in between the other places we wanted to visit next. It was also going to be our first time on the Shinkansen (Bullet Trains) which was exciting because they looked awesome to travel on. The JR Pass is valid for Shinkansen rides too and you have the choice of reserving seats or not...


日本旅行第三日 - 知步里美術館, 藤子‧F‧不二雄

Ah yes, Ghibii Museum! This place is so busy you'll have to book 3 months in advance if you want a chance of getting in. Especially during the holiday seasons. It was either a JR train to Mitaka Station or a Keio train to Kichijoji. We chose Keio even though we had a JR Pass because it was faster by a 5 minutes or so. I read the route from Mitaka...
