update: yang atas tu adalah harapan palsu
i wrote that and kept this blog post unfinished in the draft hahah
now its already a year after
i am the greatest procrestinator ;')
sooooooo i am going to update my Japan trip, because a lot of people being asking me about it
the cost, where to go, how to survive japan hahah
okayyy. so as u know, well if u read my blog
this is my post in 2009 , its old, but yeah,
okayyy, u dont want to read that, if u can, because its nonsense hahahhaa
well its basically me babbling of how much i want to go to japan and how much i am obsessed with japan culture and anime of course, and its my dream to go to japan. and i used google translate.
so u knew it is horrible broken japan, even Japanese cant read it hahahaha
but yeah, the point is. MY DREAM. IT CAME TRUE. mish
and making this trip more meaningful, its the first trip so far away from home without my parent
i went there with my younger sister, enab. and it sure is different going on a holiday without my parent.
but it is a different kind of fun. and with my parent its a different kind of fun. so yeah. its always good to have new experience.
soooo i went to Japan for about 2 weeks.
and i spent one week in Tokyo, about 3 days in Nagaoka and another 3 days in Osaka.
so u see that red X , that were the places we went
so yeahh. so we bought tickets from Malaysia to Tokyo Narita, and fly to Japan on a different flights. i know. crazy. hahaha
but my sister bought MAS and i bought Air Asia, because it is cheaper. im such a cheapo. hehe
and my sister bought the ticket before me, so when i checked for the same time as her for Mas, the price is already sky rocketing to RM3000 for return ticket to japan. and Airasia is only around RM1000 so yeah, be wise. its better to spend more money shopping than spending it on flight ticket which will send you to the same destination okayhhhh. ;)
so we just meet at the airport. its quite easy, the airport have wifi so you can communicate once landed and the airport is not that big.
so we both brought about 110,000 yen, which is 11 man i think. well its about 3,500 before the ringgit droped like a bomb. now 110,000 yen is about 3,800 i think. well i dont know im not an expert on money, just an expert in spending it. hihi. so 3,500 is not that much because we are going to spent 2 weeks and travelling to 3 different places, but hey, i actually have 2man unused at the end of the trip. which i am so proud, pfft who am i kidding, i regret i dont spend it all on the shoes ughhhh.
okay lets start with tokyo!
we landed in Tokyo around 11 a.m, and the first thing to do is, to buy the sim cards for the internet
i share with my sister, we bought docomo sim card. and that sim card can be used for 2 weeks which is how long we are going to be in Japan, The sim card is about 4000 yen. theres also portable wifi that u can rent, but it is more expensive. so i recommend to buy the sim card, and u can use on a phone, and just use the phone as the wifi hot spot. easy and cheap. we buy it at the airport, u can find a lot of telco there, so no worries, just find one that u think give the best deal and its done!
safely landed, HI JAPANNNN!
rejoining my sister at the airport
i TOTALLY agree ! :D
and thenn, the second thing to buy is, and probably the most important thing is, the train card.
like this one. it's so cute also ;)
the train card is 500yen and u need to reload it. so i reload it for 10 000 yen for the first time, and u can simply reload it at any train station if u run out of credit. its very important to have this, because like me, i travel with train, so yeah, this is compulsory, but mind that, the public transport in Japan is quite pricey, because it is efficient, ive spent about RM1000 just for transportation, which is about 30'000 yen. but if you are only going to travel within Tokyo, i think 1.5man is enough. maybe my transportation cost a lot because i went to a lot of places that are quite far.
and one application that is a must if youre going to take the train is JR LINE app. its helps a lot. and google map also. thats why u need internet on the go because u need to search for all this. the train system is wayyy more complicated than it is here in Malaysia. its like a spider web. hahah.
when we arrived in Tokyo, diyah which is enab's friend and also my junior in high school, was already at the airport waiting for us.
so on the first day, we went to place nearby to diyah's house as we stayed there, save cost, ehem. and then we went to these sushi restaurant, hamazushi, which is super cheap, its only 90yen per sushi, which is like 90sen, heavenn. and the sushi taste wayyy better. its fresh and and and the green tea is free, u can make your own green tea, so horeyyy.
independent woman make their own green tea mish
this is dango. the emoji. cute :3
well we sure eat a looooooooott. the sushi is delishhh and cheap. so ape lagi khaan. mihihi.
on day two, we went around Tokyo. first stop. Yoyogi Park!
Yoyogi Park is one of the largest city park *i totally google that* haha
Japan sure is hot during summer, no wonder Nobita refuse to go out during summer.
the park is sooo big and theres a lot people, there is even people performing on stage
feeling so cool in my pink shades :p
mini concert kinda thing :p
and we also bought this dippin dots ice cream, and well, me being me, tumpah kan hampir separuh dari ice cream tu, they are so cuteee, its like colorful snoww. sad.
anddd next destination is meiji jingu shrine
this shrine is dedicated to Emperor Meiji and his wife.
feels like ive time traveled back to, well nobunaga era, because i only know nobunaga dont judge me!
hahha. a lot of manga twist the history or retell the story of nobunaga so thats why. and it is cool or whatevaaa~
*place your wish and prayer here*
andd then we went to the famous harajukuuu ku ku ku~
lot of shopssss
