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

Memory of Seoul on May 15, 2016

… 11 Pictures, 849 words, under 5 minutes to read. 😀 The rain was persistent, so was my loneliness, and my willingness to spend one last day in Seoul nicely.

Leaving the stingless jellyfishes and my first snorkeling experience behind, we were speeding up to the next island, Sangalaki. Yes, holiday in Derawan Islands meant hopping from one to another island. I have no idea exactly how far Sangalaki island from Kakaban, but it’s located at the western part of Kakaban island, and we reached it in about 30 minutes with the speed boot. From … Continue reading Sangalaki Island, Derawan Island, East Borneo

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
