Japan Take 2

Nippon Ichi-ban

Well, I never thought I’ll be going to Japan again but here I am sitting inside my hotel’s internet room typing this. I have to say that I really miss Japan. It’s only been six months since I was here the last time around but I feel that it’s been longer than that. I was flying using JAL (Japan Airlines) and I have to say that it’s been one of the nicer flights I’ve had. Well, I didn’t actually enjoy the flight itself because I had the misfortune of sitting in the window seat with 2 seats next to me. So it was rather hard to do anything. However, the flight provides free overnight stay at a hotel here complete with complimentary breakfast before I leave to go to UK tomorrow. And much to my surprise, the hotel is clean and comfortable. It’s not big but it’s not small either. It’s pretty much my ideal hotel room.

Chotos, bento box, and an unidentified dessert

The first thing that I did after dropping my bags was going to combini right away. I couldn’t help it. I’ve been missing combini foods far too long. I am also on a budget so I can’t afford to go around spending 2700 Yen just to have dinner at a restaurant. Especially not when I have to go to England first before I revisit Japan next week (tonight is just a transit night). I can’t wait until the time when I get back here. I have bought JR pass again and this time I think I’ll go to Wakkanai or Sapporo just like Takemoto from Hachikuro. The only difference is, I’m not going to be riding bike. Not in this kind of weather. I am also curious about England since this will be my first time visiting the country. Thankfully I have a lot of friends living in that part of the world so I’m not going to be alone most of the time.

    Ahhhhh!!! lol… I commented on the food (picture)… but I didn’t comment on the entry.. I’m such a tard.. but wow, you’re going to Wngland too?! what part? I spent my 2004 year there! My cousins live in Morden, but I mostly stayed at Wimbledon! It was soooooo fun!! so this is your first time in England! Awesomeness! you’re going to love it! But it’s really cold during winter! trust me! And try riding the eye of london… I was there twice, but I was way TOO lazy to go in line… there’s like the loooooooooongest line ever for tourist people! and Buckingham palace wasn’t that great… I used to think you can get in the actual palace ^^;; HAHA! you might want to go to Kingston if you want to have fun with useless youth.. haha… but umm.. yeah, HAVE FUN!!!

    Wow back to Japan so soon. I’m so jealous. Like you, I was there 6 months ago, and like you miss it quite badly as well! Oh well, no more vacation time for me for a long time, so I’ll have to live vicariously through you. Have a good trip.

    Enjoy England too… and since you only have a week, I might as well tell you that Stonehenge is a bit of a waste of time to visit (very out of the way, takes 30 mins to walk around and listen to the audioguide, and nothing of note nearby to visit) if you were planning to go there. Tally-ho!

    I hope you enjoyed Japanese food while you had the chance! I’d say you’d be better off in England having sandwiches day and night :(.

    Your pictures are amazing! What kind of camera are you using?

    Chisa, I’m sorry for not replying earlier but I’m a bit tired lately. My camera is Canon Powershot A95. It is indeed a good camera.
