原來寫遊記真係唔簡單, 由揀相到構思文字(我仲係寫雙語!!), 少點精力都唔得.. 不過既然話咗呢個東京之旅要寫得詳細, 咁就唔可以縮沙喇!! 我冇帶相機去東京, 淨係揸住部手機見週圍影, 所以我部手機全部都係風景實物.. 好多相都仲喺朋友部相機度, 所以呢度啲相, 大家都唔會見到我喇.. 相信大家對風景嘅興趣多過我啦, 而且我發覺我當時個樣又肥又老又殘, 都係唔好獻醜為妙, 哈哈!! 點都好, 呢篇係遊記第二集, 希望大家喜歡.. :)
i realized it's not easy to write travelogue at all, from picking the photos to writing the contents (furthermore i'm writing in two languages!!), you just need lots of energy.. anyway since i've mentioned i will blog more in details about this trip, i have no way going back!! i did not bring camera to tokyo but just snapping things with my mobile phone, hence photos i am having now are all objects and sceneries.. still lots of photos in friend's camera, thus you won't find me in what i'm showing you here.. i believe everyone is more interested to see the place rather than me, also i find myself looking old and fat and weary, better be wise not to show my shortcoming, haha!! anyway, this is part two of the travelogue and i hope you'll enjoy reading it.. :)

      If Ah Boy thinks that he is FAT and OLD, then anay is a senile grandfather! LOL

      Delete
    7. Anay maybe be a senile grandfather, but then he doesn't look like his age!! he is still so bergaya like Wang Lee Hom..

  7. I love that Flying Koinobori hanging up there. It looks so Japanese and fun. I regretted for not buying one myself and hang around my neck!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Flying Koinobori is really nice, I wish to have one to hang on my house too if I have a baby grand son.

      Delete
    2. yeah, it was nice seeing those koinobori swaying with the breeze.. it felt so japanese seeing that.. i also saw lots of those in another place on the very last day.. lucky~~ :)

      Delete
  8. I also have same thoughts like you while holidaying in Japan. We stayed at 3 and 4 star hotels on different nights to pamper ourselves.

    In China, I stayed at 4 and 5 Star hotels instead as they were so cheap with promotions.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. wow, meaning Anay moved from hotel to hotel on a daily basis?? that could be quite tiring too having to pack and unpack everyday.. what i mean was, averagely decent hotel throughout the trip, but reserve one night for super luxury one, haha!! :D

      Delete
    2. We stayed for 6 nights and slept in 3 different hotels in Osaka and Kyoto. It is always a risk to book the hotels when we have no idea how good and comfy they could be. So better rotate a bit.

      Delete
    3. yes, i agree with that.. don't place all your eggs in one basket.. furthermore, you are going to different places, sure you need to book different hotels lah..

      Delete
  9. Good morning, SK and all! That flying kites are lovely to look at. They look like flying fish!

      Delete
  12. Very interesting trip! Like the short and sweet descriptions with each photo. And I realized Japanese food is not as expensive as I thought it would be.. you know how everyone always says you need to spend a lot in Japan..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hmmmm, that is actually what we always perceived, but then when you are really there, it's really not that expensive if you know the place well.. furthermore, japanese yen is relatively cheaper now.. :)

      Delete
    3. Apa hotel? Haha what a 'nice' name? Hmm did you check what does apa means in Japanese? But doesn't matter la, as long as the hotel room is nice and cozy!

      Delete
    6. very true, i actually spent hours in writing one post like that.. from picking the photos, to touching up a little on the photos, to writing a short story for each of the photo (somemore in two languages!!).. last time can write 3 posts in a day to schedule, but with this only can write 1 a day, haha!!

      many interesting places, i like those places that they still keep the traditional culture.. and though crowds were everywhere, but everything was in good order, people are disciplined and polite.. so no problem with that.. :)

      errr, actually not bad lah the photos taken with my phone.. hmmm, i have taken like 450 photos with my phone, but have no idea how many in my friend's camera, haha!! nowadays with digital camera things are more convenient lah, no need to scared not enough film mah~~ but then me not handsome lah, see the scenery better right?? :D

  16. You'll realised many shops, outlets, even houses and buildings are build in such kind of sizes. So they can fit in more stalls and many more people staying there.

    I like their morning wet market. It is wet but it stays clean everywhere. How can it be?

    They really jaga kebersihan every where.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. oh yes, i kind of find their buildings are rather "slim tall" and neatly arranged along the streets.. very nice planning lah.. and yes, the place is very clean and you don't see any sampah sarap everywhere like what we are so used to see in Malaysia.. haha!! :D

      Delete
    2. That is why our country need more Tong Sampah than Japan. Hehehe.

      Remember previous post you've mentioned? you said don't see any dustbin geh?

      Last time, I try to see any toothpicks...but no lor. I can't find any.

      Delete
    3. yalor, i think the japanese bring all the rubbish home and then sort them into different categories before throwing them.. hmmm, even the bottles, they have to take off the label and dispose them separately~~ very stressful hor?? @_@

      Delete
    4. For them is not a stress, they are well trained up! They know the rubbish is theirs, they are responsibility to handle their own rubbish. I don't think they brought home. E.g: sweets' paper, they eat the sweets and keep the sweet paper until they saw one tong sampah, they only throw it lor.

      M'sian, tak kisah lar, buang aje. In their mind set - this is not my house compound anyway.

      Delete
    5. yalor, i agree with that.. they are so well brought up and educated for being responsible for their own rubbish.. over here, we are brought up in exactly the opposite way, just throw at other people's place and pretend you did not do it~~ :D

      Delete
  17. Asakusa, I still had my photo with that huge lantern ler at FB. Yeap, agreed that everyone fighting to get the best spot.

    So nice of you browsing souvenirs for your readers. Appreciate that you think of us. The lucky ones must be very happy to receive it from you. Luckily you didn't get from there. Cos it is quite pricey!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah, asakusa is one of the places i wished to be there before i was in Tokyo, kind of a landmark right that huge red lantern?? hahaha, because received too many souvenirs from bloggers already, so die die also must get something back~~ :D

  18. I like their green tea ice cream more... Very smooth.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. i am someone who doesn't like any green tea by products.. but then i find their green tea kit-kat kind of nice.. not just like those green tea flavored things here, just only 死綠茶 and no taste one~~

  20. Sinbashi is the my fav place to hang out. Lots of people at every hour. I wonder they spend their shopping spree here. So many to see, so many to choose. Definitely is a heaven for ladies.

    That "hamsap" alleys you mentioned. I did bought one lingerie top from one of the stall. This niche stall selling all kinds of bras and lingeries - some are very sexy and hot!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hahaha, we didn't spend too much time in Shimbashi actually, just one night there.. we spent most of the time in Ueno where our tatami hotel was.. a lot of things to see and a lot of things to eat, 5 days is just not enough, haha!!

      fuyoh, you bought kinky lingerie from those sex shops?? hahaha.. i bet your hubby sure nose-bleeding~~ :D

    2. Haiya, normal one only. I didn't get those so sexy ler...

  21. SK, I salute you with that short period time of visit, You able to cover most of the famous places. Great planning! I think you can be on your on when you're going for the second trip.

    Replies
    1. yeah, first time visit must try to go to those must-go places as much as possible.. still i think we didn't have much time for shopping, and lots of things we didn't manage to eat also.. one trip is never enough, i am planning for a second round if possible~~ :D

  22. Mentioning about food. ¥450 for that whole bowl of beef platter.. it is definitely a steal.

    ReplyDelete

    1. i remember that was ¥450.. we didn't go to expensive places lah, just those japanease-style fast food chain, food are nice enough.. :)

  23. APA HOTEL? Nice name. Fing Fing must be very proud that SK let him stays at a ¥10,000 hotel per night. Not many soft toys as lucky as Fing Fing. Fing Fing please give your master a big hugs!!!

    Flight is cheap. But hotel rates in Japan is more likely this kind of ranges. Those you can get is a very good deal.

    Nice reading your post. Short and brief. Straight to the point.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. haha no idea, but i checked from internet it says APA stands for Always Pleasant Amenity, dunno if that's true.. yeah, must thank my friend for planning everything for this trip, he studied in Osaka and has been staying in Japan for 8 years before coming back to Malaysia..

      thanks for your compliment, i hope to write better in the coming posts.. :)

  24. SK...
    Why I cannot see your post clearly as the background greenery overshadow the post on IE?

    Sad la. Cannot see. Cannot spam.

    Have to wait till balik from office.

    Cos I'm lazy to spam using my phone. Hard to type fast. kekeke

    Anyway, I think if the restaurants here put condiments out generously, some of the customers will cart them away.

    I've seen people taking hot dog relishes at Ikea cafe in bottles/cups to bring back home. :(

    Our society is not the "take what you need type" one.

    Glaring example is how Malaysians and Japanese would behave at buffet lines. ENough said. :(

I totally understand your situation, sometimes lazy to write in two languages, and even want to give up but when wrote in Mandarin my friends will say they can't read Chinese, once I wrote in English, some people say they can't understand, and the translate engine tool doesn't really translate everything properly!!! =[

    2. hahaha, though not easy but then i have been writing in two languages for many years, this is the signature feature of my blog, so cannot give up, haha!!

  36. Tip to visit Sensoji. Go early morning or evening. No tourist. Not that much. Sensoji has illumination thingy going on so you can visit the temple area at night. Nice and lesser crowd. But of course, Nakamise-dori (that's the alley of kitschy touristy shops) is closed lah. ;)

    1. aiyoh, the Japan Expert has only got one tip for us here?? eih, sikit lah, should have give more tips so that we all can travel to Japan with the best knowledge~~ but i guess during the golden week, still lots of people even though it's "off peak" hours?? :p

      Delete
    2. Ok I give you another tip.

      Some of the items sold at Nakamise dori can be bought at almost 50% at shops in the nearby Kappabashi area. I kid you not.

      But you hv to know which shop to go to lah. Hehehe

  54. Photo A; Your Gyudon bowl was so big like a helmet size! You ate so much for brunch!!! I lost weight when I visited Japan for a week as I walked too much and ate so much lesser. You made a wise choice to spend only 450 YEN for a brunch that covered 2 meals!! That calculates to 225 YEN a meal. Smart Ah Boy!

    1. woke up late that's why not having breakfast but brunch.. i ate so much in Tokyo lah, though also walked a lot but then i think the input was more than output!! at least not all eating and no walking lah~~ hey, i think Anay spent even less than Thambee, Anay should list down how he can spend so little in Japan..

    2. We were just lucky lah. I brought so much cash there and came back to change the yen into MYR, I am not sure whether they still have this promo in Osaka. The Tourism Ministry offers tourists the 2 Day Pass at 2000 Yen which allows you to visit some 36 places in Osaka for FREE!!!! Plus free unlimited rides on all the subway trains in Osaka for 2 days!!!!!

      The free entrances include boat cruise, Ferry Wheel (World Tallest), Ancient castle, 2 Best Hot Spring Spas and 30 other places!!!! It saved all our monies and made Anay go nuts!

    3. that sounds nice Anay!! no wonder you spent so little for 6 days in Japan and you were travelling between Osaka, Kyoto and Nara!! i must remember to check this out when i go Osaka later..

  55. Photo B: There are many Ameya-Yokocho concept shops in their country to make shopping easier! We are so behind in terms of enviromental, town & building planning! Next time I must buy spy cameras to snap photos in these shops! I sure wanna snap the sex shop items to entertain the blog readers!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. very true, they have good planning ahead and what they have planned to do, it will come out as the planned.. so unlike what we have here, big projects but after rounds of "evaluation" become family scale already..

      anay, just buy stuffs from the sex shops and show us your loots, that will be enough to entertain the bloggers.. and more importantly "entertain" Letchumi~~ :D

  56. Photo C: When I first worked in KL, I joined the branch of Hakuhodo Advertising Agency. I worked under rigid minded department heads who don't allow you to think outside their creative box. That is why you see all their signs and ads are safe looking BUT very aggressive!!! I am glad Thambee likes their styles too.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. oh i didn't know that, now Anay mentioned that, the signboards are indeed quite the same style huh?? anyway, i love the way they placed them, that's a combination of mess and tidiness, haha, how zen!! :D

    Replies
    1. yes, the rich ones will want to latest and the best, that is why they dispose off their gadgets fast.. i think mostly foreigners go there to get models that are not even available at their countries.. 2nd hand thumb drives?? Anay is hoping the previous hand has forgotten to delete off all the hamsap photos and movies?? :D

  58. Photo E: That huge lantern is really a famous icon for Tokyo and now I know it is located in Asakusa! I always mix up with the word "Aksaka" area. Hmmm.. I am taking notes of Ah boy's foot prints and will visit same places when I visit Tokyo someday.

    1. Anay have not been to Tokyo before?? yeah, that huge red lantern is one of the icon for Tokyo, must go there to take photos.. errr, where got Aksaka?? Akasaka (赤坂) you mean?? true, easily mixed them up~~

  60. Photo G: The lanterns in Sensoji are really neat and lovely to look! Are they fully lighted up at night? This our Oriental culture of using lighted lanterns and candles for auspicious reasons.

    I am surprised they serve free Green tea to the public! They are normally so money faced - even to charge tokens to enter places of worships!

    1. hmmm, i have no idea what they look like at night, i think the place is also closed at night.. errr, i think it was public holiday that day, and there was some events happening there, they served free green tea at a booth from 9am till 4pm.. aahh, so nice!!

  61. Photo H: What is the purpose of the huge straw sandal hanging there????? I has got me curious and interested for me to find out as I have seen several places in Malaysia putting straw sandals in quiet corners of their business premises. I suspected it had something to do with feng shui. I really saw it first at MPH Bookstore! It was placed on high self away from public eye view but anay tall lah, could see every kutu on people's heads too.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no fengshui lah, BTW seldom hear the japanese talk about fengshui huh?? the straw sandals (waraji), or huge straw sandals (o-waraji) were offerings to shrines and temples in japanese tradition.. people offer waraji as part of their prayers, primarily for safe travel and health.. this pair of sandals at Sensoji each measures 4.5m in length, 1.5m in width and weighs about 500kg!!

    1. basically you can get many souvenirs from DAISO!! i saw lots of snacks there which are imported directly from Japan (not made in China).. of course, i won't just go to DAISO and get the souvenirs lah, what's the purpose.. i bought and carried all the way back from Tokyo dei~~

  64. Photo K: I must confess that I ran out souvenirs after my trip to Japan and Korea. So I went to 100 YEN shops and Korean Grocery to pick up extras to give some colleagues and in laws. Of course the HHBC got original stuffs air flown by Anay from Osaka.

    I kena tipu in Osaka to visit its impressive Sky Gardens!!!! We went and saw not a single leaf inside the rooftop of the building. It was more of an eco recycling exhibition place.

  67. Photo N: talking about hamsap alleys, now I could guess why this kuku bird never blogged about his frequent working trips to China!!! He had too many forbidden places to blog. Anyway he is blardy lazy blogger lah....full stop.

    I think the Neon Lights in Osaka's nightlife is more impressive than Tokyo unless Thambee didn't go to the most happening places at all! The one square in Osaka shocked me with its neon lights flicking in 360 degrees and I would say it looked better than Times Square in Manhattan.
