Japan Trip 2010
Day 1


The last time we went to Japan was solely to watch HYDF, buy its merchandise and have a look at TV stations, lol. This time it's proper sightseeing, with more planning. We were there for 2 weeks - 5 days Tokyo, 7 days Osaka, 2 days Tokyo. We used the Suica, 7-day Japan Rail Pass and Kansai 3-day Surutto cards. I'll put prices for a few items [in Yen], just in case anyone out there is planning for a trip and need to gauge how much to save :)


Touchdown at Narita.
Me: Look! Autumn grass!
unleash: Or maybe dead grass?

While changing currencies... celeb lookalike spotting number one - Daito Shunsuke lol. There's a few of these celeb lookalikes during our trip, we're quite sure they're not the real thing.
Then two floors down to exchange for JR Rail Pass [28300Y] (opposite Starbucks) and buy Suica cards [2000Y], then back up to buy tickets for the limousine bus [3000Y]. To the hotel!

We were there by 12noon, check-in was at 2pm, so we headed off for lunch.


Mushroom soba [870Y]

Checked-in, rested, then out to Ginza. We wanted to shop at the multi-storey UNIQLO there.


A bit more window shopping, then back to hotel.

And a random shot at a train station:

Wow, when you said you were going on a vacation, I didn't think you'd go to Japan. Good for you. I want to go to Japan too mainly for the food, places, people, and shopping (not in that order of course).

Lol at the random picture. The last picture there with a person standing. Does it say "Please keep out"? That is totally random.
(btw, I'm originally luraaa and I just changed to my original name)

@Anon: Had a great time :)

@Lora: Hi luraaa ^^. Ok Lora from now on hehe. They have all the what 'not to do' signs at the train stations and we can still hear the station officers blowing their whistles - usually to keep people behind the yellow lines!
