Konbanwa! Some of you maybe wait for this post... yes, it's my Japan itinerary! I actually don't really recommend you to go with my itinerary, you will know the reason after you finish reading this lol. I'm not an organized person, my itinerary was not detailed, and in the end I didn't even follow my itinerary, hahaha. Enough of my blabbering, shall we start?
[Day 1] 21 March - Tokyo: Komagome area
Arrived at Narita around 4 or 5 pm, amazed by all little things and ended up spending too much time in airport, lol. I was like, "OMG!!There are A LOT OF gachapon!!!". "OMG!!! Japanese magazine!", "OMG!!! Onigiri!", and the "OMG" goes on.
[Day 2] 22 March - Osaka: Kura Sushi, Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, Ferris Wheel, Dotonbori
[Day 3] 23 March - Osaka: Osaka Castle; Kyoto
[Day 4] 24 March - Kyoto: Fushimi Inari, Arashiyama
Fushimi Inari has been my long life dream place to visit and I finally made it happen. I even trekked to the top ;p I actually wanted to visit Kinkakuji but ended up sacrificing it again for me to enjoy Fushimi Inari. After Fushimi Inari, I went to Arashiyama and rented the kimono there.
[Day 5] 25 March - Kyoto: Kiyomizudera, %Arabica Coffee, Nishiki Market, Kyoto International Manga Museum, Gion
[Day 6] 26 March - Tokyo: Roppongi Hills, Tokyo City View, Akihabara, Shin-Okubo
Arrived at Tokyo and it was raining :( I went to Roppongi Hills to visit Tokyo City View so I could see Tokyo from above (+ Tokyo Tower), but the fog blocked the view *cry* Went to Akihabara at noon for lunch and met my friend there. It was too samui that we decided to leave. We had dinner at Shin-Okuba, a Korea town in Tokyo.
[Day 7] 27 March - Tokyo: Ikebukuro, Harajuku
I was supposed to go to Kawaguchiko to see Mt. Fuji, but it was raining so I wouldn't be able to see mt. Fuji, that's why I decided to cancel it. I still kinda regret it, but I couldn't do anything about the weather, right? Ended up waking up late and went to Ikebukuro to do some shopping- it was a mistake. I SHOPPED A LOT! As if it's not enough, I went to Harajuku- Takeshita Street to stroll around. And I was like...."I really belong here..." HAHAHA. Send my love again to Spinns and Wego!
[Day 8] 28 March - Tokyo: Tsukiji Market, Asakusa, Tokyo Skytree, Shibuya
Visited tsukiji market in the morning and ate a bunch!! It's too crowded with tourist after 9 so I decided to leave and went to Asakusa. It's freakin' crowded and warm! I didn't really enjoy it because all I could see is people. I ate a lot tho, there were a lot of street food stalls there :)) Met my other friend that day and she brought me to the Tokyo Skytree and Shibuya. Another long life dream place checked: Shibuya- Hachiko statue, Shibuya crossing street, and Shibuya 109. FYI, all my obsession over Japan was started because of a manga called "Gals".
[Day 9-10] 29-30 March - Tokyo: Tokyo Disney Sea and Tokyo Disneyland
JUST THE MOST HAPPY TWO DAYS IN MY LIFE!!!! Will tell you more in another post about them ;)
[Day 11] 31 March - Tokyo: Shimokitazawa, day off
I didn't feel well that day and had a cold. Decided to go to Shimokitazawa because I didn't want to waste even one day in Japan. Unfortunately, it was raining and too cold that I couldn't handle it, so after had lunch I decided to go back and move to my new guest house. Didn't have any mood and energy to go anywhere so I spent the night at the guest house.
[Day 12] 1 April - Tokyo: Meguro River, One Piece Tower, Shinjuku
[Day 13] 2 April// My birthday - Tokyo: Ueno Park, Harajuku- Takeshita Street, Cat Street, Shibuya
[Day 14] 3 April: Tokyo - Jakarta
I really didn't want to leave :( TBH, 2 weeks alone there and I never thought about how I want to go back to Indonesia and stuff, hahaha. I ate my last Matsuya for lunch and strolled around the Ueno area, ate mango soft cream (I MISS THEMMM), went to book store. And....leaving for Narita.
