2nd Tokyo Trip #Day 3: Mt Fuji, Arakura Sengen Shrine, Fuji Q Highland, Roller Coasters!, back to Tokyo

27 November 2014, 05:30 AM, woke up early, as planned, but when i look out the window, the haze got worse, not as planned :/. It’s still very dark, but i could tell that the haze was so thick and low that even light of street lamp got blurred. 6:30 AM, sun starting to rise but the haze refused to go away. I took the risk, walked out the hotel and follow the path outer the theme park to reach the FujiQ Bus Station (long walk! about 700m). As i passed the theme park huge parking area and some view of silent roller coaster, i kept turning my head to the Mt Fuji, its still covered by Haze.. oh well. Later my decision to keep walking reward me with one of the most beautiful God’s nature view i’ve ever seen

Unlike past trip when i lost my passport, this one went pretty well :)

my 2015 Resolution: let’s level up!

It’s that time of year again! when everyone is hyped up for the new spirit.. new year.. new motivation and such. If you think about it, there are many different calendars in the world and each of them probably has a new year which doesn’t happen at 31 December. You (and your great great great parents) have been indoctrinated to celebrate new year on 31 December, its cultural thing, much like the fact that Jesus wasn’t born in 25 December yet people still celebrate Xmas, decorating their house with painting of baby Jesus.

Don’t get me wrong! i’m actually just trying to find a good excuse to sleep over the New Year midnight eve :p, which i did, gracefully and peacefully. Those dates aren’t very important, but i like that i can use those dates as a startline and deadline, simply because they are memorable.

So i set myself a 2015 resolution! and i’ve decided to write it here so i can always read again what insanity i’ve promised myself, and keep pushing me further.

Tokyo Trip #Day3: Kappabashi, Harajuku, Tokyo Tower, Zojo-Ji, Roppongi Hills, Omoide Yokocho,

25 February 2014, Today trip is guided by Ryotaro, a guide from Tokyo Free Guide. He was kind enough to meet me at Kadoya hotel lobby.

24 February 2014, i woke up that morning like a champ! i had very deep sleep close to panda’s hibernating on a long northern winter. thanks to the firm bed my room has.

Tokyo Trip #Day 1: Arrived, Lost Passport, Shinjuku, Harajuku, Takeshita Dori

23 February 2014, First morning at Tokyo, the weather was clear, maybe about 6 degrees Celsius with little wind, perfect timing to see Mt Fuji, i thought. Since past weeks,  i’ve been checking view of Mt Fuji from an online webcam here , planning my arrival on Mt Fuji Birthday, hoping to catch good and clear view of Mt Fuji. But little i knew that morning that the plan would remain as just a plan, but it didn’t go horribly wrong, it’s still a very amazing first day at Tokyo :). Continue reading
