T&J Travels #10: Japan 2018 (Part 10)

We arrived late evening at our hotel. It wasn’t difficult to find because you could just walk from Kasai station and it’s at a main road. + Pearl Kasai + Our hotel in Tokyo have the same feels as the apartment we had at Osaka even up to the bath. I do not know if…

Today’s our last day for Osaka but not without going to Nara. We have already accumulated so many shopping bags plus our luggage so we really had to resort to leaving them at lockers. We left ours at Osaka station so it would be easier when we go back to Tokyo. From the station look…

Our day starts with an ekiben. We’ve been talking about this ever since we got here and thought today is the perfect opportunity to do so because our ride is more than an hour away. I got the #13  and it looked exactly the same! + Hiroshima + One good thing to know is that…

Today involves a lot of walking. Our original itinerary is fully packed with so many places and this is our attempt to finish as much from our list. We did try to start early today but we’ve still arrived at our first stop almost 10 AM already (Shin-Osaka to Arashiyama is more than an hour…

One of my most favorite things in Japan are the availability of weird drinks on their vendo machine. On this day I decided to get this drink from Beard Papa. It tastes something like flavored milk but not too sweet. + Universal Studios Japan + Price 15800JPY (for 2) We thought we were early but…

+ Umeda Sky Building + The Umeda Sky Building is a long walk from Osaka station. It’s also noticeably more modern than what we have witnessed earlier today which was laid back. It has a BGC feel to it wherein it feels more western and everything is tall and shiny. The sky building is not…

We are off to a good start. Himeji Castle can be seen from afar from the station, probably a good 20 mins stretch. We chose to walk. From there we found a cafe to eat our first meal of the day- Cafe Jr. + Cafe Jr + Reagan had a pretty breakfast with so much…

+ Yoshinoya + I have 3 fast food joints I would like to try out in Japan. From our trip we only got a chance to try 2/3. The first one was Yoshinoya, the nearest and the only open fast food near our Osaka apartment (it was almost midnight already). I have ordered their beef…

Sorry Coke Vanilla, I just found my new favorite flavor in Japan! We were supposed to start our tour as soon as we arrive but all of our schedules for the day were pushed because of the 2 hour delay. We did get a bottle of water, 2 Magic Flakes and Presto cookies from CebPac…

Big Bad Wolf in Manila (Feb 15 2018)

Obviously this has not missed my radar. The first time I have heard of it I immediately followed their PH page and made them appear first on my feed. And on a strike of luck while we were on a train at Japan I checked Facebook to see a fresh post of them giving away…
