呢次嘅東京之旅, 說到底其實就係因為朋友應邀出席佢一位日本朋友嘅婚禮而促成嘅.. 因為呢位朋友曾經喺日本讀書同生活近八年, 難得有呢支盲公竹帶路, 呢個旅程由佢一手策劃, 就自然水到渠成.. 原本個plan係佢去參加婚禮嘅當日, 我哋就自由行, 結果因為日本友人嘅好客之道, 兜兜轉轉咁最後我哋都被邀請出席.. 能夠有幸親身體驗一場日本婚禮, 我覺得就算冇去睇櫻花, 冇去迪斯尼/環球影社/多啦A夢博物館等, 呢一趟東京之旅實屬難得.. 未去睇過嘅日後還有機會, 但係婚禮就唔係話有就有喇.. 點都好, 呢篇係遊記第四集, 希望大家喜歡.. :)
this trip to tokyo was really a consequence of my friend being invited to attend the wedding of his japanese friend in tokyo.. this friend of mine studied in japan and has been living there for almost eight years, with this guide who basically knows everything about japan upside-down, we let him take charge of planning the trip and hence resulted in my virgin trip to japan.. the initial plan was that we hang around nearby during the day he attend the wedding, but due to the japanese hospitality we were instead, all togehter, being invited to the wedding at last.. i would say it's a great experience being able to attend a japanese wedding, albeit no sakura to see and we didn't go to disney, universal studio or doraemon museum, the trip was indeed worthwhile.. we still have chance for those we have not seen before, but a wedding may not just be at your fingertips.. anyway, this is part four of the travelogue and i hope you'll enjoy reading it.. :)

  3. Wow what an elaborate and traditional Japanese wedding! You're right, attending a wedding is much better than the tourist attraction! It's certainly a rare opportunity to witness such an occasion and to enjoy French food!! Lucky you! :)

    1. It was an eye opening trip for you in Japan, as you could watch the traditional Japanese wedding. How nice!

      So nice of the host to invite you and your friends to their wedding reception too.

      Anyway, did you prepare any wedding gift or angpow for the bride and groom?

      Delete
    2. indeed, one very good experience of life to witness a traditional japanese wedding.. they are so kind and nice to invite all of us to the wedding.. but so paiseh lah, we just went there empty handed cos we didn't know, haha!!

  5. I like pictures in K, I can only see this type of wedding scene in Japanese drama. You can witness it with your own eyes.

    By the way, did you take any picture together with the bride and groom?

    1. i have not really watched any japanese drama or at least none of those wedding i've watched.. yes, took a couple of pictures with them, in friend's camera..

  6. Sakura, Disneyland are great but then its what tourists would normally go and see/visit. Your trip is much more special.

    1. So in Jap is called Shinto Wedding?

      Delete
    2. Shinto is the spiritual belief of most Japanese.

      Shinto wedding is a traditional wedding following traditional, age old practise la...

      Otherwise, couples can just get married Western style.

      Delete
    3. They can choose either one as well?

      Delete
    4. Why not?

      the most important thing is to register wedding first. This is ceremonial.

      Malay also can choose not to bersanding for their wedding.

    7. yes, it was a nice wedding and i heard they have to spend millions on a shinto wedding.. a real eye-opener and great experience for me of course..

      wah, maybe Lina and Angeline want to fly to Japan and have a nice Shinto ceremony for their wedding anniversary?? invite me wokay?? :D

    8. Haiya...we are fine with our own tradition, right Lina?

  8. People always ask me whether I've been to Mount Fuji everytime they know I'm planning a trip to Japan.

    & I was like... Hello? Japan only got Fuji-san ke?

    Anyway, I've never bothered to even visit Hakone as I feel it is too touristy.

    Maybe I'll go someday but I'll go off the beaten path places which is not swarmed by foreign tourists. I definitely need Rurousha's advise for that! :-)

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hakone nothing much to see then the trees and gardens.

      Delete
    2. Actually there are plenty of places interesting to see in Hakone and I'm nit talking about the places where tour groups go. That's boring, I agree. :-)

      But then again, my interests in what is interesting may differ from what others deemed interesting. ;-)

      Delete
    3. Ya lor... I remember the tour guide just brought us there... nothing to see. We just belah like tat. The tour guide had done his job.cos he brought there ady and said let's go to the next destination. Shall we?

      Delete
    4. yalah, i didn't even bother to go to see Mount Fuji lah, at least for this time.. i think there are still chances for me to arrange subsequent trips to see Japan in more details lah..

      true, it will be nicer to go there on your own, you cannot see much following those packaged tour lah.. furthermore they packed everything in shortest time possible, probably you are just allowed 15minutes to take photo at every spot, i hate that!! haha~~

      Delete
  9. Good morning SK and everybody! It's a wet Friday morning! So refreshing and cooling! I am going to take a nap after spamming your blog, haha!

    5. The wedding lunch, so interesting and special la! But why is it French style one? No need to mention they must be very delicious! The menu card is very nice, did you keep it?
      Here I also wish your friend and wife a blessed marriage! Next invitation from him would be 'red eggs' already, hehehe.. (Wonder do they have fullmoon celebration just like Malaysian?)

      Delete
    6. yeah, this friend of mine knows Japan well and of course being fluent in Japanese he has to be our tour guide lah, haha!! and because of him, we were invited to the wedding, which make the whole trip so special.. ah yes, i love Meiji Jingu very much, it's a very beautiful place, but we didn't have much time to spend to explore the place more..

      hehehe, i did google a bit on those terms lah, hope to give more info to readers with the description i put mah.. and yeah, everything seemed so nice huh, and the wedding ceremony is surely one great experience.. but i have no idea why French, i actually expected some very traditional Japanese food~~ :p

  33. Photo D: I also enjoyed admiring at all the solid looking wooden beams and pillars made from trunks with beautiful grains. We don't have much of these beams in our country. It is Spring time and usually their colours will look rich and colourful compared to end of Summer. Maybe it is due to the cleaner air space.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. oh yeah, those beams and pillars were from best quality trees around the region, mostly from Taiwan where they shipped across the sea by using ropes to trail!! interesting huh?? and they are assembled without using a single piece of nail.. ah yes, i guess the place will look different in different season??

  35. Photo F: So lovely! They have so many green shady trees all over. I wonder if they are Gingko trees as usual? They always like to plant the same Gingko, Maple or Pine Trees only. They should try to plant our Durian, Chempedak, Angsana and Papaya trees too!

  39. Photo J: We also collected many chop stamps in Osaka. Many places provided booklets or special visitor's paper to collect the stamps! This is very innovative to make the students show their teachers that they really visited every floor. A good example was the huge Osaka Aquarium which had self-chop stamp counters at every section. Who else but Letchumi collected all the stamps!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We collect them too.

      And at some places, you can get free souvenirs if you have all the chop at the attraction/building and show it to their guest relation counter or similar.

      We have a lot of freebies because of that from TEPCO, TV Asahi, Transportation Museum... ect :)

      Delete
    2. oh, i didn't know that!! next trip to Japan i must go and find all those stamps already!! it would be nice to have them all collected into a notepad huh?? it's just like your passport, get a stamp for every place you've been.. nice idea!!
