Tokyo Travel Nov 2015 Last Day- Fuji Gotemba premium outlet

The last time we visited Tokyo, we didn’t get to see Mount Fuji. This time, our friend suggested Fuji Gotemba premium outlet, where you can shop and have a nice view of the mountain at the same time. Sounds like a great plan! We took a direct bus there. You can check out the full… Continue reading Tokyo Travel Nov 2015 Last Day- Fuji Gotemba premium outlet

Pink overload! You’ll be greeted by two cafes when you go up the stairs of Cuoca- The Sylvanian families (entrance fee payable, photography weren’t allowed by visitors) and Jiyugaoka Sweets Forest! This is like a mini street of desserts.

Tokyo Travel Nov 2015 Day 3, 4- Harajuku, La Foret, Jiyugaoka

We visited Harajuku twice during this trip, it was raining both times, lol~ Judging from the crowd, this is the hip, trendy zone for youngsters in Japan. Many fashion stores, crepes snacks, and a very prominent Daiso lined the street. Too bad cos of the crowd and rain, we couldn’t shop as comfortably as we… Continue reading Tokyo Travel Nov 2015 Day 3, 4- Harajuku, La Foret, Jiyugaoka

Tokyo Travel Nov 2015 Day 2- Tokyo Metropolitan bldg, Mentsu-dan Udon, Loft, Pablo

There’s a few places where you can enjoy a bird’s eye view in Tokyo. But this is probably the only one that’s free: Tokyo Metropolitan government building. On the way to the observatory, we can’t help but notice how clean the streets are. In Japan, we can see workers cleaning even the grooves of escalators… Continue reading Tokyo Travel Nov 2015 Day 2- Tokyo Metropolitan bldg, Mentsu-dan Udon, Loft, Pablo

Tokyo Travel Nov 2015 Day 1 [pt 2]- Ameyoko shopping at Ueno & Character Street at Tokyo station

En route Ueno, we passed by this mini mart selling alot of pre-packed curry! I bought this Okinawa curry to try. And here we are at Ameyoko street! My friend recommended this place, saying it’s good for shopping sports shoes, candies, and affordable dons (rice set). To be really honest, I didn’t quite enjoy this… Continue reading Tokyo Travel Nov 2015 Day 1 [pt 2]- Ameyoko shopping at Ueno & Character Street at Tokyo station

Tokyo Travel Nov 2015 Day 1 [pt 1]- Tsukiji Market

Our first trip to Tokyo was in 2008. A marriage, a baby and some years on, we revisited this beautiful place. Again, just the two of us. We flew with ANA, direct flight to Haneda airport, totalling SG$1440 for 2 pax. I can’t say there’s much difference between Haneda and Narita airport, since it took… Continue reading Tokyo Travel Nov 2015 Day 1 [pt 1]- Tsukiji Market
