雖然只係得嗰短短嘅四日時間, 但係呢一次嘅東京之旅可以話係不失為一次愉快嘅旅程.. 呢四日, 我去過大部份一般遊客應該去嘅地方, 我睇過同食過大部份我本來想睇同食嘅嘢, 更慶幸嘅係我可以親身經歷一場神道婚禮.. 至少我可以話我去過日本, 一個我多年來都希望可以踏足嘅日出帝國.. 我相信單單一次嘅數日旅程, 係絕對唔夠睇晒同做晒所有事情嘅, 所以日後再一次去東京都唔出奇, 到時肯定會係更加深入體驗嘅一個trip喇.. 點都好, 呢篇係遊記第五集, 亦都係最後一集(係唔係好開心呢??), 希望大家喜歡.. :)
albeit spending just a short 4-full days in tokyo, i think this trip was indeed a great one, i have been to most of the places a tourist should go, i have seen and eaten most of the things i wished to see and eat, plus a big bonus for being able to attend a shintō wedding.. at least, i can say i have been to japan after so many years of wanting to step foot onto this land of the rising sun.. i believe we can never see and do everything with just one short trip, probably i'll plan for another trip to tokyo again for a more "detailed" experience of the city.. anyway, this is part five as well as the last part (very happy right??) of the travelogue and i hope you'll enjoy reading it.. :)

    2. Hello STP! I am here, just a bit too late doesn't mean I am not his loyal supporter. I was busy watching KBS TV program at home this morning!!!!! So gan jeong! I think most bloggers are busy on Mondays, so you will see them trooping in like lions after lunch. This Japan's post must not be missed ok.

    3. I was engaged with Japanese ojisan consultant for some training session the whole day.

      Now only manage to report in :D

      Good day, SK and all!

    4. We're loyal lah...

      Just that not everyday we are able to sit in front of the PC and spam people. hehehe

      Anyway, SK. I'm finally here! :)

    5. hahaha, yalah, better late than none right?? i guess everyone must be busy in the morning nowadays, nobody is interested in the first commenter spot already as i don't reward that, hahaha!! or perhaps everyone is waiting for everyone to comment, so that they can just reply to comments~~ :D

  3. Aiyor!!! Why you so dark one? Very hot there kah? Got sunburn. Hmmmmm...Malaysian go Japan eat Japanese curry. Hehehehehe!!!! I know some people love that - not spicy one...same as Sibu Foochow curry. LOL!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Adoi! STP, you don't have nice thing to say to SK kah? The other day said SK far from nice, today say SK is dark.

      Adoi! Luckily I didn't say anything bad.

      By the way, SK is wearing Ubah color, thumbs up!

      Delete
    2. Sunburn in Japan? The chances to get sunburn is higher here in Malaysia. Just stand under the sun for 30 minutes and I'm sure you'll get 100x darker shade, muahahaha!

      Delete
    3. Actually I feel the sun is way hotter in Japan than in Malaysia.

      Like it's hotter (and dryer) in Beijing during summer months. Give me Malaysia anytime.

      Delete
    4. i have no idea why i looked more tanned, hahaha!! maybe the UV is stronger there, plus we were mostly outdoor during our stay in Japan, unlike being home we stay most of the time indoor..

      japanese curry is nice, not the spicy ones that i couldn't take yet it has the fragrance still.. i like~~ :)

  4. I went to Japan many many years ago...before my daughter came along. I did go to Tokyo Disneyland (just opened then)...but I guess everything's so different now. Don't think I can afford to go anymore, no need lah... Been there, done that, enough already.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I am quite shocked that Tokyo Disneyland was opened so long ago before your daughter arrived!!! Blink! Blink!

      Now it is cheaper to visit Japan compared to 20 years ago! It depends on your lavish style of eating and hotels.

      Delete
    2. Twilight Man, you right? Nowadays with AA you can always fly to Japan with a very reasonable rate. Do some own research, I bet is a fun trip without a tourist guide.

      Delete
    3. Besides air tickets fair, hotel and food is up to you to choose from according to your budget. SK's RM2500 4Day's trip to Japan is simply amazing.

      Delete
    4. I spent RM15K for two weeks for a family of three in Japan. hehehe

      Delete
    5. including airfares, accommodation plus souvenirs too

      Delete
    6. oh, the Mayor has been to Japan before, i thought he only goes to ang moh places!! but that was more than 20 years ago?? surely a lot of changes happened in Japan.. probably no need to go to Disneyland again, but i think other places, it's nice sometimes to revisit the place you have been years ago.. :)

      aiyoh, next time go Japan must consult Anay and Lina lah.. they really know how to make the trip 5-star with just 2-star expenses!!

    ReplyDelete

    1. of course, Tokyo cannot represent Japan by itself.. i guess next will be Osaka and Kyoto, and then Hokkaido primarily.. some other places that tourists seldom go after that.. :)

    2. I went to Osaka and Kyoto...and Nara too with its spotted deer.

    1. I have no problem at all viewing all SK's pictures so far.

      The thing is FB has already blocked my office, so I have more time on other things.

      By the way, I hope my office won't block blogger. Otherwise, I can't do most of the things that I like other than working like a machine.

      Delete
    2. I can't get online as often as I want when we move to the new office. My Big Cheese is seated right behind me and he can see my monitor clearly!! ^%&($#*

    1. Correct, last day is a sad day, especially when I met someone good looking there. My last trip when I left Korea, I felt like bringing the handsome tour guide home. Shhhhh!

      Delete
    2. errr, at times that could be lah.. but cannot let that affect your mood, must enjoy to the fullest so that you do not have any regrets when back home.. eih, Mak Yannie then you must snap more photos of the handsome guys to bring home lah~~

    1. We cannot afford to go picnic in our lake garden here.... the weather is burning our skin, unlike the nice cooling weather in Japan.

      Delete
    2. Sitting under a shady tree at Lake Garden is nice what. Lots of people nap there too.

      Not only in Japan. ;)

      But cannot lie down on the grass at KLCC park, right? Kena chase by the guards! hehehe

      Delete
    3. yeah, i think park is definitely one nice place for recreation and bonding to the japanese.. furthermore nice and cooling weather there, so make sense lah.. over here in Malaysia too hot already, later got sunburnt easily..

      and there is no guard to chase us off if we lie down on the grass!! Lina is ever so right about Malaysia!! hahahaha~~ :D

    3. My hubby always said during our holidays, when you saw something nice, better get it or else, no way getting back to the place again. Just like your Doraemon case - empty handed.

      Delete
    4. Got a LOT lah.

      Even Ueno Park has a famous flea market.

      Delete
    5. i think there are flea markets in every place lah, just that your tour guide didn't bring you there since he will never earn any commission haha!! errr, i have no idea about the second hand clothes, i wasn't interested at all also..

      errr, okaylah, for Doraemon i don't mind paying more to get new ones~~ :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Japanese have rice too in the morning... Don't worry, you only been there for 4 days only. Muahaha

      Do you know Japanese rice they served are the best quality among those exported to other countries? They always reserved the best quality food for their own rakyat. Second best only are the exported ones.

      Delete
    2. I love Japanese curry to bits, same as my girls. I always cook that myself.

      Delete
    3. i've been there for only 4 days and i had almost one month of rice intake quote back home, hahaha!! oh, i didn't know that they reserved the best for themselves.. unlike us, the best are always exported and the rakyat always have the lower quality ones..

      i actually like japanese curry, not hot and just nice to eat, yet still have that very fragrant curry smell..

    Replies
    1. yeah, very unique and nice building with those cute windows!! that's what caught my attention initially.. :)

      Delete
  21. Yeap, their building and houses is built slightly inchess apart. Meant for earthquake? it could be.

    My guess will be, they always have this culture "mind their own business". One thing is that they do not like to share with strangers. Ot it could be they do not want to be disturb or they don't want to disturb by other people. Japanese are friendly, but sometimes in terms of this privacy they are very particular with.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hmmm, i have no idea about the actual reason for those gaps.. yeah, could be earthquake, could also be privacy..

  22. Hey last day ok, spend as much as you can. That is what I do always.

    First 2-3 days afraid to spend too much money. But ended we kept to the last day, ended we didn't get anything. Muahaha...

    Usually, I spend most of the coins buying snack and foods. Because only notes will accept by money changer ler...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hahaha, very true!! i guess most people are like that huh?? cos have to be cautious during the first couple of days, and also kind of cannot accustomed to the prices there and keep doing conversion.. later during the last couple of days, don't care lah, just hantam semua kasi sama dia lah~~ :D

  23. SK, I enjoy reading your Japan travelogue. It is good for me to know more about the latest trends and changes so far. Probably get ready for my Japan trip for the 3rd time next year! Still planning not confirm yet.

    Advice to you, try to plan your 2nd trip to Japan's country side places... It is much more amazing scenery to see.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Do you realised I comment more over your Japan post? I really miss Japan... Sometimes I will browse Lina's site to read.

      Delete
    2. wow, you are going to Japan for the 3rd time next year?? where to?? the Yen is cheap now, maybe you also want to slowly get some now to keep.. hahaha, thank you for commenting so much for these 6 posts, i really appreciate that!! yeah, maybe next trip would be Osaka and Kyoto.. i wish to visit major cities first before going to country sides and less tourists-visited places.. :)

      Delete
    3. You're most welcome SK. Hope you're not bored when you keep seeing my face and my comments. hahaha.

      From the initial stage I said i love Japan and never bored with Japan.

      Kyoto is a very nice place... you can plan to Kobe too. I never been to Kobe, I heard it is nice.

      My trip previous to Japan focus on - Tokyo, hakone, Osaka, Yokohama, Kyoto, Nara, Mt Fuji, Hamamastu, Disney and US. Experience bullet train, cable car, Owakudani - volcano valley, lake Ashi - 8D6N.

      Delete
    4. I plan to go with my MIL to shirakawago - nice place... heard of this place? Dunno the time frame suit me or not. If I go I need to burdern my mom to take care both kids... Taihen desu ne...

      Will see how is it plan... still not confirm.

      Delete
    5. wow, you have been to so many places in Japan and all those in just one 8D6N trip?? hmmm then probably cannot experience much but just look see look see huh?? never heard of shirakawago, i went to google and i saw the picture of the village and i actually heard of this place (not the name of it, haha).. the one and only ancient village with all the ancient houses, nice!!

      Delete
    6. Imagine lar, every night have to unpack and change hotel almost 4 hotels I think.

      Delete
    7. hahaha, that was surely the typical packaged trip lah.. you see the most of things within the shortest of time.. so that you call a sneak preview of the place, later only you choose which you like and go there on your own.. :)

  24. Good afternoon SK!

    Aiseh last post already? :(

    1. The Yoyogi park (Yoyogi, what a cute name!) looks very comfy to play at! But only green field there? No other facilities/playground?
      Yala, I am sure the park there is well maintained one.. Compared to Msia....

      Delete
    2. The flea market looks so crowded and happening! But you left empty handed? Must be feeling sad huh? But never mind, thinking at the bright side, save money! :p
      The fresh tulips are so pretty! Me love tulips!!
      And japanese curry rice, OMG!! Me want!

    3. The Harajuku street, really looks something like Bersih! Haha xD
      Actually most places you went is quite crowded la, tourist spot ma!
      Picture J, I know what you're trying to say, just like 富太 having high tea time! ^^

      Delete
    4. Hmm, gaps between buildings? Good observation! But I don't know the actual reason, but may be you're right, related to earthquake matter.
      And Shibuya, yea exactly like Times Sq NYC! I bet it looks cooler at night!

      Delete
    5. Thanks for sharing your awesome Japan travelogue! I had a good time looking at all the photos and reading your descriptions! ;)

      Delete
    6. I thought the gap is there simply because the owner / builder of each building is different. & then, they can easily tore down each singular building to build a new one? No?

      Delete
    7. the trip is definitely wonderful i have to conclude.. yoyogi park (yes, what a cute name) is very huge, what i showed was just one small corner of it, it has lots of facilities and amenities.. we were just briefly strolling on the way to the flea market..

      okaylah, my intention for this trip wasn't to shop and buy lots of things.. more of sightseeing and of course eat lah.. for example, having afternoon tea in a posh area like a 富太, that was a good experience mah, haha!!

      i really have no idea about the gaps between the buildings.. so mainly because they are owned differently??

      Delete
  25. Good evening, SK and all! Japan is indeed interesting. So much things to see. I love the flower arrangement and that's a unique structure.

    3. yeah, very true!! i think i have to get rid of this habit, i should be more decisive next time, but then i'm worried i'll be buying too much then, haha!!

      Delete
    4. I have experienced that before. I thought I could get the same one at a better price somewhere but to my disappointment. Well, just buy those that you like..very simple but under control of course! :)

      Delete
    5. hahaha, but i think largely also because of luck?? no wonder you can always buy so many things when you go travel huh?? me opposite, i hardly buy many things when i go travel, save money mah~~ :p

    It's more adults (or couple) oriented. :)

    Replies
    1. yeah, i am not interested in Disneyland lah, probably DisneySea would be better.. anyway, i think the most interesting one to me would be Doraemon Museum lah, wakakakaka!! but they have very limited tickets and need very very advanced booking..

  30. Photo B: This Yoyogi Park looks big but I wish you have posted more of this place since it is the biggest in Tokyo. Their parks are so neat and safe to take naps or have picnics. We all slept a bit under the pine trees in the park outside the Imperial Palace in Kyoto as we had to wait 2 hours for the visitor's gate to open. It was safe to relax and nap in Japan.

    1. not just look big but it's big indeed, and not the biggest but one of the biggest!! anay always miss out reading "one of the" in thambee's description lah, piak piak!! we didn't really spend time there, because we just briefly walked in the park on our way to the flea market..

      yeah, it's so nice to lie down on the grass and under the tree for a nap right?? in malaysia, even if it's safe to do so, the guard will definitely come and halau you lah~~ :D

    2. LOL. Anay's eyes damn lau hua already! How sad! I will open my eyes wider next time. At least I am the only one who would comment in lengthy manner! No???

      Okay this Yoyogi Park is one of the biggest park in Tokyo!

    1. i don't think they would be vandalised cos there will sure be some barricades and guard to protect the flowers.. we would only be able to see the photo from 10m away at least..

  34. Photo F: Anay loves Japanese Curry Rice and Letchumi makes the best ones. She accidentally discovered the secrets how the great Nihon Chefs made their curry so fragrant in restaurants! In Kyoto we dined at the famous shop that only served Japanese Curry and they have their spicy Ratings from number 1 to 10. Anay played safe and ordered No 6. My mouth was on FIRE!!!!!

    1. oh, Letchumi cooks the best japanese curry rice?? Thambee likes, so what are the secret ingredients she found out and used?? aiyoh, if Thambee was to choose then maybe just 3 lah, cannot take spicy food and doesn't want to take the risk, I still want to enjoy my holiday.. BTW, what is the name of that curry restaurant??

      Delete
    2. One day when my angin is right I will ask Letchumi to cook the curry and ask my despatch to deliver to your door! Let me go home and dig out my Kyoto photos to get the restaurant's name ok.

  35. Photo G: Anay has been dreaming to visit Harajuku and see the punks doing street dancings! The BERSIH crowd was so scary and poor Thambee had no souvenir shopping! It was really a bustling place!! I would prefer a quiet street to do window shopping.

    1. yes, it was Sunday of the golden week and for sure the place is packed like sardines!! but didn't see much weirdo there, that was indeed a little disappointment.. but we did saw a band singing Doraemon song at the children's fair, in ballad style, nice!!!

    1. i don't know, haha!! maybe a place like Sungei Wang lah.. with lots of weirdo and interesting things to see, but primarily should be all the Lolita and Naruto that makes it famous.. yeah, i would like to snap more photos, but really it was too packed with people..

    2. I would definitely take photos of the branded stores but I don't think I would ever blog them as I never did it. Seems like I am a stingy blogger. Perhaps FoongPC should conduct a blogging workshop! Muahahahaha

      Delete
    3. yeah, i may take photo but then most probably i won't blog anything about them lah.. to me these are so mundane details!! hahaha.. hmmm, foongpc blogging workshop?? wow, entry requirements: must be generous bloggers who want to share EVERY DETAIL OF EVERYTHING!! :)

    1. true also, after walking for hours, it's good to take a rest lah, not young anymore.. hahaha, i looked so tanned that day i don't know why.. they must have thought why this Indian Prince isn't having his curry and chapati but pops over to their cafe for tea and cake!! :D

  46. Photo K: What a polite bunch of Japanese demonstrators! If they come to BKK or KL, they won't be noticed!! They need to have BERSIH's size of rally dei. They fought for children's better future BUT here we have been fighting so hard for UBAH - INI KALI LAH!!! Nothing has happened so far, so I think only a disaster or lightning is required to remove them!

    1. one thing is that they also have very polite police to help them strike a peaceful protest!! you see what we have, you wear yellow, you shout ubah, you talk about sensitive issues.. there you are, enjoying your days in the jail, but of course i have to stressed that this will only happen outside the election period~~

  47. Photo L: Anay will remember Shibuya and go there to farmer's Market @ UNU to eat fresh strawberries & salad leaves. Thambee's blog post is quite interestinga nd different from all other bloggers I have seen. They showed so much neon lights, love motels, sex shops and street punks!! Adoi, we prefer Ah Boy's photos!

    1. we didn't know if the farmer's market is scheduled to be there regularly, we just walked around shibuya district on a sunday, and we were so lucky to be able to see so many interesting events..

      ah, i also showed neon lights lah, i wanted to show sex shops but photos were not allowed.. for hotels, ah, i don't bother to take my camera and take photos of each corner and then blog a 500-word post about them lah~~

  48. Photo M: I saw in TV documentaries that Tokyo has so many earthquake proof or resistance buildings and structures. They had so many mild and strong tremors every year and the buildings have remained intact without cracks. Those taller buildings have giant buoy-like metal structure below underground to allow the buildings to sway a bit!!! They are indeed so advanced!!

    I am more interested to know what was that white sculpture that looked like Alien-Sotong!!!! Muahahahahaa

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah, they have been surviving from numerous devastating earthquakes and natural disasters, and yet they are still so advanced!! how we oughta salute the japanese right?? errr, the white sotong?? i don't think it's something special, just some random sculptures on the street i guess..

  50. Photo O: I always liked the idea of ctching late evening or night flights home, so that I could laze around to do last minute sight seeings. I have big lessons never to arrive at the destinations at midnight or depart at early mornings! Both timings are wasteful of money!!!

    So this is the photo that some squint-eyed people said you looked dark?? I think it was just some lighting effects that gave you the tanned look like David Beckham! Nice!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. very true!! i also prefer taking late evening or night flight back, at least still have some time to sort of linger and do some last-minute activities.. hate having to rush to catch early flight, which means one day wasted..

      BTW, David Beckham isn't tanned at all lah.. actually i think we spent time outdoor most of the time, not surprise that i got tanned with the strong UV there..
