Wanderlust Hannah in Japan – Part 6: Fujiyoshida~

It took me awhile to update about my Japan trip, I’m just feeling discouraged with the internet connection here and I’m bored being at home. Yes, its so boring plus being jobless and broke. it’s really depressing. Okay enough about that, let’s reminisce back my Japan trip and be happy.

Road trip to Fujiyoshida, to be honest I’m not really sure what was the exact name of the places we went but I believe it was Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi because that’s where Fuji Q highland is located and we stayed at Fuji View hotel at Katsuyama, Fujikawaguchiko-machi. Both are at the same place right? Haha this is a fail, seriously all I know during the trip was just being a passenger who goes where ever cousin brought us and being amaze all the time. I kinda don’t know the name, even if I try to remember I will forget after that, there are just so many names. I guess this is the bad travel blog ever? haha I don’t even know the places I went.

That day was another best day of my life, when I first saw the glimpse of Fuji mount, I was so thrilled. It feels like my heart about to explode with all the excitement and all. Too much feels I told you. And then there’s Fuji Q highland and those rollercoasters you can see from the road. How can you keep calm like that? Anyway, we arrived there around 12pm and we went to Fujiten snow resort first thing while waiting for 3pm for hotel check in. There at Fujiten, we went to see the snow, people skiing and taking photos. It was nice to be there and first time for me to see the real snow.

It was told that, it will be snowing that night but the snow never came. They even put salt on the road but boo hoo false alarm weather forecast. We stayed at Fuji View Hotel and the view there is something to die for. The hotel look classic from outside but the room was okay and nice. The view at the back of the hotel is Lake kawaguchi and it was seriously breathtaking. I couldn’t get over the view, it’s just so beautiful. I really wish we stayed there longer. Imagine it now during spring time, must be really beautiful with all those sakura blooming here and there.

Wanderlust Hannah in Japan – Part 5: Shin-Ōkubo Korea Town ~

Shin-Ōkubo Korea Town is one of the favourite places that I visited when in Japan. I was really excited with the Korean feels around there. Korean Celebrities pictures and merchandise are everywhere there. It’s literally heaven for the KPOP fans.

The street was full of KPOP goods and merchandise shops. It was fun to see lots of KPOP around there. What I saw, there are a lot of JYJ, TVXQ and other SMTOWN artist merchandise being sell there. A lot of Big Bang too, some Infinite and etc. I can’t really find the stuff I want; I was actually looking for Infinite stuffs but there are not much or maybe because I didn’t go at the right place. Most of the shops were playing Infinite songs that day tho, because Infinite was having concert there. Sobs I was there but yaa I wasn’t able to go. Next trip goals must go to a concert.

So that day, we were only there for an hour or two. I was excited but I didn’t buy anything there probably because I’m not into fan goods and merchandise anymore. If I’m my 16 years old self, I probably buy lots of things there.

Korea Town is recommended for KPOP fans and those who enjoy Korean food. Hmm I just wish I can eat those delicious looking Korean food there, apparently it’s not Halal. Boo hoo.

Brunei Darussalam 31st National Day Celebration in Tokyo, Japan – 23rd February 2015

This is very late post, I thought I still want to share this because it was the first time for me celebrating Brunei’s National Day abroad. So during the 2nd week of my trip to Japan on 23rd February 2015 was the 31st National day of Brunei Darussalam. I got the opportunity to attend the celebration there in Japan. I was obviously really excited about it.

The celebration was held at The New Otani Hotel, Tokyo. The place was really lovely, the view of the garden from the hall was really nice. The food that evening was delicious too.  I don’t know what else to tell about what happened that evening because I was mostly feeling amazed+blank but pretty sure there were many important people came.

Something cool was the performance by Japanese traditional band, one of the songs they played was a traditional Bruneian song called Adai-adai. I didn’t manage to record that but I did share a little part of their other performance on my instagram. Do check it out 😉
