Gardens by the Bay
Around 6pm we arrived at the Gardens by the Bay.
Then we decided to get inside the Floral Fantasy Garden
We watched a 3D show but cameras are not allowed. We had fun… The place was so huge and we don’t have enough time to explore the place. I wish to go back and check the other shows…
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…
After our tea ceremony, we went to a hotel with a huge garden.
We were headed to this restaurant…
Then they prepared our lunch…
It was grilled meat.. oh it simply made my day! I love grilled meat so much! They cooked it the way I wanted it.
I think we ate a lot… it made me more energized the rest of the trip. Then they served this vanilla ice cream. I had this picture taken while waiting for everyone…
It is my second time to have Tea Ceremony in Japan.
I like it because I got a chance to know their culture and it always amazed me and that is the reason why I love travelling.
So we went inside a hotel and to my surprise we were headed to a wonderful garden.
There is this little hut and we went inside to do the tea ceremony.
At first we were given this little sweet candy.
Then they demonstrated the tea ceremony.
Then they gave us this matcha tea, it was a little bitter and with the sweet candies, the taste seems perfect.
After the tea ceremony, we were given time to explore the garden…
At merong kinasal… 🙂
The garden was so relaxing… They even have a little lake inside…
Premier Cabin Hotel in Shinjuku
During our stay in Tokyo, we checked in at Premier Cabin Hotel in Shinjuku.
The place was so tiny but I think this is the common hotel rooms in the city.
I just remembered our hotel in New York, it was as tiny as this too. I think big cities have this tiny rooms.
Though it was tiny, but it was clean. All the things I needed was there and near to everything we needed. The hotel staff were also nice and the breakfast was really good. I started missing the food when I came back home.
The bed was also so soft and comfortable that the moment I went back from our tour, I can sleep immediately.
5th Step of Mt. Fuji
After visiting the Lake, our next destination is in the 5th step of Mt. Fuji or the foot of Mt. Fuji.
I was not ready for the weather.
It was so humid and hot in the city and when we arrived in Mt. Fuji, it was so windy and chilly.
It is literally in the foot of the mountain and some mountaineer were there preparing for going up and suit up for the cold weather while I was wearing a summer dress!
It was so cold so we decided to go directly to this souvenir shop.
But we never bought anything… instead we went out and just check the place… .
That’s Mt. Fuji in a closer look 🙂
After checking the place, we decided to go back to our bus. It was so cold already… 🙂
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!
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.
