Japan Trip 2023 - Day 2, Nagano Kami-Suwa

Off to the Your Name, Tateishi Park today. Early morning so I could have more time to explore the place. Got up at half 5 to head to the station. The Azusa Limited Express is only available from Shinjuku so wanted to get there before rush hour. Despite being the first train of the day, there was actually quite a lot of people. There are quite...


Japan Trip 2023 - Arrival

So Japan's finally opened up again and tourists are flocking over. Me included and I decided to pick a flight to arrive on Sunday so that I can kick off my trip on a weekday when the natives are all at work. This is my second time here. They didn't have much Anime on the flight but Gold Kingdom and Water Kingdom by Madhouse was available. Saw a...


Last Day in Japan, Day 12 Time to Fly Back to UK

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...


Trip to Japan Day 9 – Osaka. Den Den Town and Shopping

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...


Trip in Japan Day 8 – Shirakawa Village, Takayama

Well, after a day's break of wandering around shops, it was back to touring the land of the rising sun. While I'm a big fan of Japanese games and Anime, I was also interested in Japan's culture thanks to all the TV programmes I grew up watching such as documentaries and travel programmes so I decided we should go visit a rural village while...


Trip in Japan Day 7 – Break Day, Rail Museum, Nagoya Shopping

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...


Trip in Japan Day 6 – Nara. Nara Park, Toudaiji, Fushimi Inari Temple

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...
