TOKYO!!! TOKYO!!! TOKYO!!!
If you've been following me on my Instagram, you'd know by now that I had the time of my life during my school break. I travelled to SOOO many places and there's just SOOOOO much to update on!
I do apologize for the delayed entry, I just have toooo many photos to transfer and soooo many to choose from! And finally! Here's my entry on T-O-K-Y-O!!! The place I've always wanted to go! To see all the beautiful people there and definitely the beautiful scenery and to experience their awesome awesome culture!! And it's even more beautiful that I get to share this moment with my beloved! Tokyo wouldn't have been that much fun or memorable without him. I miss my babyyyy :'(
We travelled to Tokyo for exactly 6days, 5nights! IT WASN'T ENOUGH!!! I definitely want to go back there again in the future! DEFINITELY!! I'm even brushing up on my Japanese too by watching J-dramas all week! haha honestly, the amount of time I've spent on watching dramas, it's crazzayyy.
(pictures are taken both from my iPhone5 and Sony NEX3)
Took off from Hong Kong airport to Narita Airport, Tokyo by ANA! No words can describe just howwww excited I was! I was squealing like a crazy little girl exclaiming how I can't believe I'm actually really going to Tokyo! And going together with the love of my life!!!
Off we go :D...
After 5-6hours or so, WE ARRIVE TOKYO!!!!
I don't know if I'm just biased towards anything Japanese, but seriously, even the AIR feels and smells just sooooo nice and beautiful and just divine! I was loving Tokyo the moment I stepped out of it! hahaha dramatic I know..
Look at the size of my jacket and you'd know just how dramatic I am. haha honestly I think I look like a cuddly bear :D Don't you think?! I absolutely LOVE this Liz Liza fur coat, but unfortunately, although it looks thick and warm, it wasn't able to stand the strong winterly winds of Tokyo.
I definitely look like a furry cuddly bear. lol!!
So the first place they took us to, thank god!, was a direct factory outlet store. Thank goodness they brought us there for I was able to get myself a new coat. A super beautiful and warm coat and you know for how much?? AUD$100!! For that quality and that warmth, I had expected to pay atleast AUD$200 if they were to sell it in Australia.. God damn I love Tokyo! hahaha
Our first meal! Katsu Curry Omelette Rice!!!
This was friggin' hell delicious!! It wasn't even some super popular restaurant, it was a random restaurant that had huge loads of cute displays outside that enticed us into ordering. And yet, it still tasted bloody hell awesome!!! HOW DO THEY DO IT, THE JAPANESE???
Their ordering system! Soo cute! But abit difficult if you have no idea what you're ordering..
haha luckily my baby can read abit of Japanese :D
During the night, we were free to wander around ourselves. Wandering around the suburbs of I can't remember the name, we found this stand-alone van Ramen shop!! Just like what I see in dramas!! I couldn't resist and HAD TO EAT THERE!!!
I look friggishly tired, this was towards the end of the day..
haha pardon me..
OMG!! Now I finally understand why is it in the dramas, they're always eating by the roadside and drinking hot sake! It is frigginly warm and the feeling is just soooo amazing! It's like, it's sooo cold outside, and yet you're having this awesomely hot bowl of delicious ramen accompanied with hot sake! The experience is just really divine and I'd loveee to experience that again! It's super enjoyable! You definitely MUST do it when you're in Japan.
The adorable owner agreed to take a picture with me! hahaha
Wasn't able to take many photos on the first day because my battery was dying :(
Onto the second day! We were heading for MOUNT FUJI!! EXCITED TTM!
Obligatory self-shots on the bus :D That's how I like to kill time. haha! While I was busy snapping shots of myself, my baby was hard at work. I had to literally pull him away to take photos with me. He never loses focus, so hardworking even on holidays! I love him to bits!!! :D
The love of my life!!
*hugs and kissessss*
My favourite picture of all! Don't we look similar? :D
It's my phone wallpaper and lock screen! Can't get enough of us!
LOL!! Baby wanted to get back to work and I kept disturbing him
On the way, we stopped by this convenience store for a toilet break. And omg! I was amazed by their VAST AMOUNTS OF different types of food and drinks. Mannn, why am I not living in Japan?? :'(
An array of different types of drinks. You can either buy HOT OR COLD!!
BENTO BOXES!!! Seriously?!!
If they had this in Melbourne, I wouldn't need to starve every single night,
or head to McDonalds anymore!
For the health-conscious people, they do have salads and healthy things too..
lol! I don't really give a damn for healthy things.. Hence my weight :( Depressing.
Their vending machine outside!
Onwards towards our destination, and then.....it started to SNOW!!!!
Look at the BEAUTIFUL SNOW!!!!
This was just a random house that we drove by and yet it still looked sooo pretty!!
On our itinerary, there was an attraction whereby we'd sit on this ship for 20minutes! I always thought it was like the boat/ferry that I sat back in Taiwan. Like a small cramped up boat.. but boy was I wrong! It was a rather massive ship! hahaha
You see?! It's a massive ferry/ship! Really gorgeous!
The scenery was absolutely gorgeous and soooo picturesque. Too bad neither my iPhone nor Sony camera could capture the beauty of it. You'd just have to believe and imagine that it was super pretty!
My shining star!!
Arrived in this little town, and although it looks gloomy through my phone, it was
actually really bright and white and just pretty!
We were then brought to this cafe/restaurant with an amazing view of the countryside! Because it only just started snowing, the land was yet to be covered in fluffy white snow. But still, it was friggin' beautiful!!(pardon my overuse of 'friggin' I really wanna say the other f-word to emphasize my point but, friggin will have to do. lol!)
Doesn't this look like a scene from the anime, "Howl's Moving Castle"?
When we finished our lunch and headed out, we were greeted with even MORE SNOW!! The snow was starting to fall much harder and it just snowed and snowed and snowed! I wasn't bothered by this at all. I was loving every minute of it! hahaha
Told you I was loving every minute of it. LOL!!
I realllly hate my laughing face, but I feel this is acceptable cuz I look really happy
(although abit retarded...)
After that, it was onwards to Fujiten Resort! And guess what?
We SNOWBOARDED!!! Totally excited and truly an amazing experience to snowboard in Tokyo! It was amazing! The people there were really all super pro! And it was just so beautiful coming down the mountains. Couldn't take any photos for obvious reasons. I'm not that pro in snowboarding to be able to snowboard AND take pictures. haha!
Baby and I :D
We had the most amazing time snowboarding down together. My baby is super pro at snowboarding! He can snowboard exactly like how I see those pros doing. All I can do is stand there and glide down the mountain, praying I don't fall down on my ass. hahaha!
After that, we were then brought to our hotel for the night, where they had a super traditional ONZEN!!And yes, this onzen is where you HAVE to be naked, where everyone's naked together.. LOL!! I was freaking out at first cuz I'm not too keen in walking around naked (OF COURSE, it's girls and girls, guys and guys). Even so, I still am super self-conscious of my body.
Eventually, I went anyway and I do not regret at all!! It was the most amazing experience! I loved it! Nobody gave a damn about anyone else, they were all just minding their own business and having a bath. I probably enjoyed myself too much and soaked in the hot spring for too long. I came out with super red legs T_T Yeah, I stayed in too long, my legs were kinda burnt... Luckily not that bad!
A sumptuous dinner before heading into the Onzen.
Absolutely delicious! It's making me hungryyyyy :(
That's all for my first two days in Japan and already this entry is soooo long! Haha I shall continue in another entry another time :) Stay tuned for more updates!
