Tokyo 2016 Photodiary aka: a last minute visa applicant’s attempt to talk the universe down.. to TOKYOu down. 😉
A bunch of people have observed that the Northern Lights in Iceland is the “new” Cherry Blossoms in Japan. That is, there is a boom in the number of Filipinos going there. For a time, our Facebook feed was all about the the elusive pink flowers, but I guess that has already become commonplace, and now…
Photo diary of our springtime trip to my favorite Japanese city – Kyoto.
Dubbed as the most boring city in Japan – Google’s findings, not mine! – one goes to Nagoya without any expectation. It’s not as modern as Tokyo, nor as traditional as Kyoto. We arrived late in the afternoon, with only about 3 hours to spare before the last train to Osaka. We saw the Nagoya TV Tower from a far, but other than that, we didn’t get to see much. We did, however, have a lovely dinner at one of the most charming cafes I’ve ever stumbled upon – Air Cafe.
Osaka was our base for the first part of our Japan 2016 trip. Sadly, it being a base meant we spent more time away than there. Nonetheless, it did make an impression and I would definitely be back to explore.
The streets of Tokyo were nearing empty. Or maybe just in this stretch from Haneda to Shinagawa. I watch the storefronts go by, mostly convenience stores I would find myself in over the next few days, over the next few cities. I think to myself, so this is Japan. And it was, and it wasn’t just.
Stratford-upon-Avon and why you should go outside London
Just as charming as Windsor, but a tinge more fancy.
Icy rain, strong winds, and that fascinating Windows XP wallpaper.
Maybe I should’ve given it more thought and spent a night or two.
Quintessential London icons I would love to see again
