Just a quick update, sharing some of the pictures I took when we went to Snow Resort Fujiten last February. I’m missing the cold weather, it’s seriously hot here in Brunei. I definitely want to go back there someday in winter, and next time let’s play the snow and try skiing.
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.
Japan. Japan. Japan! It’s been almost 2 weeks after my trip to Japan and I’m still talking about Japan with everyone and even posting the pictures I took in Japan on instagram every day. I actually been wanting to post about my Japan trip here, but I was unable to blog because I can’t stop obsessing about Japan. My trip there was amazing. I just love it. I never thought I will go there first before South Korea. As you all know, Japan is one of the expensive country in the world and going there with little money is actually a bit risky but I got lucky because my cousins are there. My mom actually went there first before me, after her trip she was always excited talking about Japan. Me as a KPOP fan obviously wanted to go to South Korea first but then mom, my excited mom was so awesome and sponsored the ticket flight to Japan for me. Obviously I can never say no, I was so thrilled.
Japan is a place that I definitely want to go back again, in fact after just a day coming back from there I was wishing to be there again. It’s funny that I didn’t feel homesick while being there or maybe because 2 weeks weren’t enough for me to be homesick. Talking more about Japan, the country was really wonderful and I really love it. Wait, did I just said that again? Haha I got so much feels. I really enjoy being there, it was fun.
2 weeks in Japan feels so short, during the time there we went to a lot of places in Tokyo from Shinagawa to Shibuya, Harajuku, Shinjuku, Ginza, Odaiba and other places I don’t know what the name was. I especially love our road trip to the strawberry farm around Chiba area I think and we also went to Fuji and Osaka. Mount Fuji was breath taking, and it looks like vanilla ice cream just because it was so white that time or was it because I was craving for ice cream all the way during the trip? Haha.
Shopping was fun especially if you have lots of money but in my case I need to limit and control myself because of my limited budget. but I’m really grateful that I was with amazing people, I feel blessed because my aunt and cousins are awesome.
One of my favourite things to do while I was in Japan was playing at the game station (or whatever they called it..sorry I’m not sure) it was a place full of prizes game or I think they called it the UFO catcher and my favorite place was Round 1 at DiverCity Tokyo. It’s actually a place where you lost your money without realising it but it was very addictive you can never stop till you get the prizes especially with all those cute fluffy plushies. Believe me you yourself know you will lose your money but you will still play it till the end anyway. xDD
There are lots of things to talk about Japan, I will post more at another post and this post is already long. Just imagine if you meet me in real life, I will talk nonstop. xD
