Shibuya Crossing

At the famous Shibuya Crossing..

Before we went to Japan, I do my own researched about the places to visit and I found out that people have this post in Shibuya Crossing and I told to myself that I should my picture crossing too… just like everyone!

so kahit ang bigat bigat ng maleta, pinanindigan ko talaga yan!

Lahat na yata nong crossing don ay tinawid ko na para lang makakuha ng nice shots!

Medyo nakakapagod pero mabuti na lang at nagawa ko!

Till next time! 


Hubby wanted to see the Unicorn Gundam so we went to Odaiba.

It was a rainy afternoon, right after our museum tour, we went to see the Gundam.

I was not a fan but of course I wanted to see it also. 

We had our snacks while waiting for the 5pm show. 
Before going back to the hotel, we passed another museum about the old Japanese Time…

It was a great day…

Light Museum

It took a while since I posted about our Japan Tour because we have limited internet access at home.

So okay…

Here are some of the highlights of our tour:

We went to Light Museum early knowing that we have a lot of time to explore the place but when we arrived at the area, there was a long line! It took us 2 hours to get inside the light museum.

It just good that we ate before going to the museum and we also bring some extra food.

It was holiday that time and the start of school break so basically, more tourists and locals were going…

I was so amazed… I hope Philippines will come up of this kind of museum..

Sobrang saya ko, ang ganda ganda talaga. The pictures will not justify the beauty of the place. You should really visit the place to appreciate it.

There’s also a time limit so we need to take pictures fast. But everything is so worth it!

Emperor’s Palace

Our next stop was going to the Emperor’s Palace.

We walked and walked.. it was quite far from where our bus stop..

We finally arrived at the gate of the Palace!After that bridge is the palace.. we walked up to the gate but we are not allowed to go near the gate. It was a bit gloomy that day!The Gate

Since we walked far, we got thirsty… 

Tokyo Tower

We joined a city tour and our first stop is in Tokyo Tower.

The Tower

This time we seated in a front part of the bus because we came in early this time. yay!

But to my dismay, I don’t want to went up to the tower because I am really afraid of heights and I don’t want to ruin my day of going to the tower on our first tour. So, I let hubby went up to the tower while I just stayed in the bus.

Our picture taken together by a tourist too, we were so thankful for him.

I think next time, I will also went up, if my mood is okay. ahahha

Gotemba Premium Outlet

After visiting the Old Village, our next stop is the Gotemba Premium Outlets.

I’m not in the mood to shop, so I just check the Adidas outlet and bought jacket.

Then we looked for a place to seat but when it was time to go back to the bus, I saw interesting stores…

Then…  I just loose control.. hahahha

It was so spacious. Our 1 hour allotted time is not enough to check every stores.

Before entering to our bus, our tour guide saw us and took a picture of us together with the Mt. Fuji in our background.

I looked so tired already. I always sleep before 10pm when I was in Japan. Grabeng pagod kakagala kaya maaga natutulog.

The Amazing Mt. Fuji

I always wanted to see Mt. Fuji. So I see to it that it is included in our tours.

We need to wake up early because our tour starts around 8am. We had our breakfast at 6am, then headed to our meeting place.

It took us 2 hours before we arrive at the Lake Kawaguchi.

The view…

Then we had our tea ceremony first.

The room was full and mostly Filipinos.

I am not really a tea lover but I love the taste of matcha tea.

Thanks to our tour guide for this picture. We seldom have pictures together for this trip,  unless we asked random strangers to take a picture of us.

We joined in a tour and we were the last to get in the bus so we seated at the end part of the bus.

The tour guide speaks good English and I learn a lot from her. 

Robot Restaurant

So after we check in, we need to be at the Robot Restaurant around 3pm.

We booked for the 4pm show but we need to be in the place at 3pm for our tickets.

Luckily, we arrived earlier. It was so hot and there were already more guests waiting outside the restaurant.

Around 3:30pm they let us in and we are in the waiting area.

To my surprise.. this is the waiting area.

Too much color! Too much brightness!

After waiting, we were guided to the restaurant.. and we were going down!

While going down, there were so much colors again! So many mirrors!

I’m not sure if I can make it anymore… I feel dizzy inside this colorful place! Here we are! they are offering food and drinks.

We already had our food preorder when we booked our tickets online.

My food.. but I never finished it. It was so noisy inside and I can’t even eat my food. 

The presentation was awesome but it was so loud..

Loud music and extreme lights!

Maybe this is well suited for the young people…

I have fun watching the show and it was a great experience and I might come back here with my kids and I’m sure they will enjoy this spectacular show!

Hello Tokyo

We used Uber Black when we arrived in Tokyo. I was so tired already and all I wanted to do is to freshen up and just relax in the hotel. It was so humid that time and it is really important to wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

I am just thankful that we got a comfortable ride, we had a Toyoto Alphard going to the hotel. But we arrived earlier than our check in time, so we need wait a little before our room were ready.

Bullet Train to Tokyo

So it is the day that we will be going to Tokyo through Bullet Train!

I was so excited!

Everytime I heard about the Bullet Train when I was young, I always wonder how fast it was! I wanted to experience it and I never thought that this time will come!

The fare to Tokyo was quite expensive but it was so worth it. We had our early breakfast then headed to the station. We rode a taxi to the station to save us time and besides we were carrying heavy luggage.

Yay we were so ready!

It was indeed so fast! It only took 4 hours from Osaka to Tokyo and the ride was so smooth. I was even sleeping most of the time. It was so comfortable.

I highly recommend it!

The best ride ever!
