Pagkatapos kong mag-CR, naisip ko na mag grocery at dumaan sa Boulangerie para bumili ng discounted bread. Malapit na kasi mag 7PM. Pagbaba ko ng office, nakita ko yung officemate ko papasok. Sabi ko sa kanya, “Uy ang aga mo ah!” 8PM pa kasi pasok nya. Pagpasok ko ng Grand (amoy) Canal Mall, binati ako nung security guard ng usual nya na, “Buona sera!”. Umakyat muna ako para i-check kung may aloe vera gel na sa MUMUSO (wala pa din). Sabi naman ni ate na tiga MUMUSO, “Annyeong haseyo! Mumuso!” Napansin ko medyo madaming tao. Friday kasi siguro. Nung papunta na ko sa tinapayan, may madadaanan uli ako na guard. Eh di bumati sya ulit ng, “Buona seraaa!” tapos sinundan nya ng “Bukas ang zipper nyo Ma’am.”

We arrived in Tokyo at around 7 AM. Our stop will be at Shinjuku. From there, we’ll figure out how to get to our next Airbnb accommodation. Our host sent us very clear instructions on how to get to their house from Oshiage station. Navigating around Japan gets easier and easier because we’re getting used to their transportation network. But we also learned to immediately ask questions when we find ourselves utterly dumbfounded.
So the plan is, once we get settled in, we’ll just take a shower, eat breakfast, then start our day already. Nauwi nanaman kami sa gyudon resto cos they’re usually open 24 hrs. Natutuwa na talaga ko sa chopsticks skills ko (say “chopsticks skills” 10 times). Naalala ko lang uli nung kumakain kami dito. As for those two (Benson & Bong), they’re already in Tokyo as well. Bong will stay with us for one night while Benson will stay with his aunties. Medyo nag-kanya kanya na kami when we were in Tokyo. Our itinerary for the day:
- Meiji Shrine
- Photos with Hachiko
- Cross Shibuya Crossing
- Tokyo Sky Tree
Eto na yung dalwa na sooobrang prepared sa pagpunta nilang Japan. *eye roll*
We bumped into them when we went out to buy some food in McDo. It was probably around 9PM. They looked so tired and hungry. Pretty much like us on our first day in Japan. 😂

Two of the things that I’m looking forward to see in Japan is right here in Kyoto. The moment I saw pictures of the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove and the torii gates in Fushimi Inari-taisha, I was completely blown away. I can’t wait to witness it with my own eyes.

USJ Day! It was a 15-minute walk to Shin-Imamiya Station (from Ken & Mark Guest House) going to Universal City Station. Some morning sightings while strolling around Osaka:

We were already at the airport three and a half hours before our flight. The plane will depart at 3:00 PM then 8:00 PM (Japan time) would be the arrival time. At first, I thought the 8:00 PM that’s indicated in our ticket is also Manila time so I thought that it would take 5 hours to get to Japan. That’s why at 6:45 PM (Manila), I was just chilling in the plane because I thought we still have one hour before arrival. But the pilot suddenly spoke and announced that we will deplane in about 15 minutes. I got excited and started to fix my things and my hair then wore my shoes.
