Thought I’m going to have a HAPPY CHRISTMAS this year but it wasn’t, now I better hope for the coming 2014 to be awesome and hopefully in my new house (I WISH!)
So after delay for so long almost 2months. Here’s my first post on my Japan Nikko/Tokyo trip. Too many photos and thanks to Simon for putting words on the pics to remind me where we go and what we did. hahaha. It’s a super tiring trip like a marathon or amazing race but I enjoy this trip so much that I’ve serious withdrawal symptoms for about 3weeks.
The best part of this trip is that I only spend about $1300? Including flights+hotel. EVERYTHING. And it’s the first trip that I never gain weight. I’m so surprised.
I decided to put 20 photos for each post relating to Japan so you all don’t need to scroll endlessly. (sometimes more)
Don’t scroll blindly, it’s all passionate writing from Simon. LOL
Our first train tickets! It says ‘Oshiage’ which is actually one stop short from Asakusa (target) Nevermind I’ve got Faith!!!
Impressed with all the train operators. The doors are always aligned.
beaming with excitement but still super tired.
At Tokyo, Asakusa
I thought Tokyo was already cold, but I never expect…
walked to Asakusa (Tobu) station
All Nikko Pass covers all Nikko buses for 4 days and Two way train ride from Nikko – Tokyo. Took Premium train because we were late.
Nikko is like freezing at night! By the way FYI, premium was SHIOK hahaha.
Got these super nice crackers free while rushing to board the train!! From Tochigi.
This is the best cracker ever!
Here we arrived at NIKKO!
While we were in the train..
Hanaishi-cho, Nikko bus stop #12
It was about 13bus stops to our hotel.. Kono-san is so friendly and fatherly! hahaha. We had stone bath this night and the water was so hot!! I don’t dare to go in LOL!!! But the path to the stone house, you need to brave 4degree in the night with only your lounge wear. SO think about it..
Pretty maple leaves, can never see in SG.
Vending machines everywhere!!!! You can never see these in SG!!
Hanaishi jingga – An absolutely stunning place we came across. Being new to this place, we dare not enter.
Yes, we didn’t dare to enter..
so we walk into this and take photos, I’m hershel ambassador. LOL! oh yes, we love hershel alot!
This is the start of our journey – Ikimashou!!
Everything is like 100x better than SG. 🙁
Look at how happy I was!
Love this Coat from Pull and Bear even though it never really keep me warm HAHAHA.
So happy when I was in Japan, come back to Singapore I feel like dying, the culture is really different. Japanese are so polite!!!!! They don’t push they don’t stare and they don’t curse openly. The vending machines are so convenient the food are so nice, even the combini food are better than some of the jap food here! I really hope I have some time this coming year to go back there. 🙁
Let’s look forward to photo 22-41! 🙂
