One Last Night in Yamashinden

Have I written here that I continued doing HelpX even in Japan? Have I told you it was at one tiny hilly village named Yamashinden, which I first acknowledged the area from the profile of my future host? Have I written here that one of numerous things I loved about Nagano was the food? Okay, it doesn’t matter because I assure that I have written … Continue reading One Last Night in Yamashinden

The Faces of Shibuya

When you pay a visit to Tokyo, I think a stop to Shibuya would be hardly avoided. Shibuya Crossing is hardly separated from Shibuya itself, however, there is much more to enjoy in Shibuya than its extremely popular and populated crossing and Hachiko statue. Below are few pictures about Shibuya that I frequently visit at afternoon or night. Tsutaya Bookstore Now, I bravely claim that … Continue reading The Faces of Shibuya

Hozenji Yokocho and Hozenji Temple

Both Hozenji Yokocho and Temple in Osaka appeared on my mind after reading a site dedicated for travelling spots all over Japan.  Hozenji Temple is part of Hozenji Yokocho which is located only few minutes away from Dotonbori Area, but definitely gives different vibe with that one of most popular shopping and entertainment districts in Osaka. I remember that day, my friends and I just … Continue reading Hozenji Yokocho and Hozenji Temple

Tokyo Tower and My Incompleteness

Let’s go to Tokyo Tower before continuing my (seems unfinished) stories of South Korea. You might be aware that I am this typical person who loves the free or cheap rides at the same amount how I enjoy seeing the icons or landmarks of a city. If I miss that while visiting a country, especially if it’s easily accessed, I would feel slightly troubled, one … Continue reading Tokyo Tower and My Incompleteness

Once Upon A Time at Shibuya

Ah, kali ini pake bahasa Indonesia dulu. Bukan EYD pastinya karena aku selalu lemah di situ. Cerita kali ini, masih terinspirasi dari group chat Seoul. Iya, aku tau aku susah move on, bahkan cenderung gak mau move on. Kali ini bukan cerita dari Seoul, tetapi di negara tentangganya, Jepang, tepatnya di Shibuya. Lebih tepatnya lagi cerita tentang suatu hari di musim semi, saat aku dan … Continue reading Once Upon A Time at Shibuya

First Time in Enchanting Kyoto

I like Kyoto for its nice balance of culture, natural beauties, and modernization.  I once said that one day was not enough to explore the whole richness Kyoto could offer, but it could be sufficient to have a bit taste each of it. On one day trotting around Kyoto, I had my own note for these five things. Shrines and temples Kyoto is known as … Continue reading First Time in Enchanting Kyoto

Asakusa, Akiba, and Shinjuku at First Time

No, I didn’t procrastinate this post. I got my day off yesterday, so I had no good internet connection. 😥 April 28th, 2013 Our last day in Tokyo before heading to next city, Kyoto. I have posted two pictures below before; however, I’m not over it. Asakusa, 10:20 a.m Meeting up the cuteness promise, while travelling around Tokyo, it was really easy to find anything that … Continue reading Asakusa, Akiba, and Shinjuku at First Time

First Time In Impressive Tokyo; Tokyo Station

A bit different with the last three years when I promised myself to write in each travel anniversary, this time I’ll grab the moment and write every single day until my last time in Japan, which means I’ll write continuously for the next 5 days. If the first day was memorable simply for it was first, my second day was memorable because few things which … Continue reading First Time In Impressive Tokyo; Tokyo Station
