剛剛由日本返嚟, 趁記憶猶新, 快快將呢一次嘅東京攻略用文字記錄下來.. 循眾要求, 我會嘗試為呢次嘅旅程寫下更為詳細嘅遊記, 同大家分享之余亦希望能夠提供有用資料俾大家.. 一系列嘅遊記就由呢篇預覽開始啦, 跟住落嚟會有幾篇更為詳細嘅post(當然相都會大張啲), 如果大家覺得悶嘅話, 其實齋睇呢一篇我覺得都夠喇, 呵呵!! :D
i just came back from japan and while my memory is still fresh, i may better quickly put this trip to tokyo into posts.. by request, i will try my best to write a more detailed travelogue for this trip, to share with everyone and hopefully able to provide useful information to readers.. the series of travelogue starts with this prelude, following will be more posts which will give further details (and bigger photos).. if you are bored reading too many posts, i guess just reading this post alone would be sufficient, haha!! :D

  3. Good morning, SK and all! I would surely love Japan. I planned to visit Japan last year but it didn't materialized. Instead I visited Eastern Europe. Well, I might go next year. This year I have other plans.

    1. yeah, i have always wanted to go to Japan, and this trip was a rather spontaneous one.. Japanese Yen is cheap now, perhaps you may consider getting some for your trip next year..

      Delete
    4. Twice. First one is Tokyo, disneyland, US, other place around Japan. Second, is Hokkaido.

      Remember you blog about your previous trip to Bali, Dubai and so on... I was thinking to blog about my japan trip lor. Tat time I still dunno what is blogging yet. Phai seh.

    5. yeah, you should!! that is also the reason why i blogged about my trips last time.. wow, you have been to many places in Japan lah.. so what's next?? Osaka??

      Delete
  8. You spent under RM2500 for 4 days is not really cheap la. Anay spent less than RM2500 for 6 nights at Osaka, Kyoto and Nara. Of course we were like poor gypsies!

      Delete
    3. ops...my mistake....he tarak mention angpau....just expenses.....hmm...wondering including angpau or not

      Delete
    4. 4 full days in Tokyo under RM2500 i personally consider that cheap lah.. everything was decent and i didn't have to starve or eat bread all the time, so i'm rather happy with that.. :)

      Delete
    5. Any value below RM3K to fly and stay in Japan from 4-6 days is considered reasonable to Ah Hua.

      Ah Hua has never stepped into the Land of Rising Sun! Ah Hua must thick-skinned to befriend with many many Japanese colleagues here so when travel there, perhaps can get free transport, food and lodging, muahahaha! I'm so cheapskate.

      Delete
    6. yeah, in my impression going to Japan costs a bomb, but then with this RM2300 and being able to see what i should see in Tokyo, i consider that a rather not expensive trip.. eih, Yen is cheap now, you can plan ahead already.. :)

      Delete
  9. wow i bet you enjoyed that trip a lot huh! welcome back sk!
    looking forward the most for this series of post

  11. Getting Visa to Japan is a must. They need detail information - about your financial status, work and so on. Very detail. Need to have sufficient to support.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Last month I had to apply Visas for my boss' family of 10 persons! The toughest part was his parents and children went along too. I had to crack my nuts getting all the certs to show he is the son of both parents and his 2nd wife is legal plus the son blah blah blah... Next nightmare was all the documents to show and certify he is the director.

      It is definitely easy for one to apply for individual self instead of everyone depending on my boss. Lots of extra letters had to be drafted out. Haiks.

      Delete
    2. Twilight Man, yeap you are right!

      Not easy to get Japan Visa. They would ask you to get more details and cert to proof all that.

      But kenot say only rich people can visit JAPAN lar. Everyone can go and visit the beautiful country. Japanese are like that everything must be in detail and support by some other reason - documents.

      Delete
    3. They afraid we go there not for vacation. If they found out you go there illegal working, you definitely kenot go Japan again.

      Fortunately, family trip and business trip should be ok! no worries.

      Delete
    4. They only make it tough for Malaysia, China and few countries cos we have too many illegals working there without permit. They only want us to prove that we are bona fide tourists. Now China also gila and start asking for all itinerary, flight and hotel bookings from 2013!!! (except financial statement)

      Delete
    5. i heard that the visa application has somehow become less strict, because of the slowing economy they are encouraging people to visit Japan.. see, they are giving multiple entries visa to us..

      a friend's relative who stayed in Japan to work illegally was allowed to go to Japan again.. all she has to do was "sumpah" only, haha!!

      Delete
    6. Oh really!!???? Thambee got multiple entries visa!!! How nice! I want! I want!

      Delete
    7. you didn't get multiple entry visa?? errr, there's another very simple form to fill in for that, just give nice reasons why you like Japan and they will give you multiple entry~~ bodek a bit lah!! :D

  12. well english wasn't taht used there? good thing i know some

  13. speaking of animes, i heard that anime there
    was there was too mainstream, it was actually their

    1. oh yeah, japanese are definitely crazy about anime.. anyway, it was just a short stay for me this time and i didn't have much time to explore the place really.. :)

      ahem ahem...means planning another trip there soon is it? :p

      Delete
    2. yeah, it was strict but recently it has become less strict.. probably economy not too good so they encourage people to go Japan and spend money there, haha!! this time a bit of a short trip, definitely will go again in the future to do all the things lah, haha~~ :D

      Delete

    1. Adoi they have so many English signs and many Japanese could speak fluent English or broken ones. It is easier to get lost in China than Japan.

      Delete
    2. Haha so true, at China definitely giving you all kinds of route... Japn no worry tak kan sesat.

      Delete
    3. no worries lah, road signs have English lah.. perhaps you need to bring along a map lah.. just in case you cannot find anyone who can speak English, haha!!

      true, because China is too populous and most of the people came from other places, they may not know the place but out of their egoistic attitude they just simply point you a direction.. haha!!

      Delete
    4. Many people in China are sadly idiots. They really dunno anywhere and they call those places in their own slangs!!!

      Delete
    5. yeah, one good example is taxi driver!! many came from other places and yet a driver in the big cities, asking the passengers the way!! if i know the place, i don't have to take taxi right?? though similar to taxi drivers in Japan, at least they use GPS and never ask the passengers how to go there, the most is suggest routes for passengers to choose..

      Delete
    6. Some china taxi drivers used GPS but took me to HOLLAND instead.

      Delete
    7. hahaha!! anay, i would probably blame those "original fake" GPS system than the taxi drivers.. if you know what i mean.. :D

    2. Eh so this is a friend of yours? Not sure if you have mentioned in your post? Hehe, may be I missed out that part :p

      Delete
    3. Yea, English is very not common there, I remember when I went shopping in Japan, we had communication barrier, so we used writings or 比手划脚。。 haha!

      Delete
    4. But everything in Japan is so pretty right? The weather you mentioned, just nice leh! Not too cold or hot!

      Delete
    5. haha, i try my best not to bore my readers lah, else nobody wants to come to my blog already, haha!! yeah, the wedding is the gem of this trip, it's such a great opportunity to be able to attend and experience their very unique culture.. and she is actually a friend of my friend lah, so doing the maths can consider as my friend also right?? haha.. i was lucky, because my fried studied in Japan for few years, so he became our guide and communicate with the locals.. so i didn't have problem at all, haha!! :D

      Delete
  24. What I liked best about Japan was how clean it was, the people too - all so neat and tidy...or at least, the ones that I saw. Yes, they do not speak much English but it's ok...can manage somehow. Too expensive though...and I'm not too crazy about Japanese food. What you ate there, nicer than what we have here...or the same?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah lovely place! I saw huge Sumo wrestlers inside the onsen! Wakakakaka

      Delete
    2. I read someone said Onsen? Yeah, experienced that too. Don't miss this when you're in Japan.

      Delete
    3. yes, it's a very clean country and the people are so polite and disciplined.. it would be useful if you can speak Japanese, else you may expect a little English spoken which may help.. not really expensive, and since Yen is cheaper now, i've just spent RM2500 for this trip.. errr, is FOOD the biggest concern for you to travel?? haha.. to me, i would like to see different cultures and places, food is secondary, furthermore i am very open to trying new things..

      sumo wrestler?? do we have one here?? haha.. and onsen, no chance this time, maybe next time when i go Japan again~~ :)
