( Japan -Part 1 ) Amazing trip to Tokyo ~ Began my trip !




" I will travel to Japan one day ! "
This sentence start spinning in my mind since i was 15 .

I love the Japanese food.. such as sushi,sashimi,yaki tori ...
I love the Japanese fashion and hairstyle..
I love the Japanese cartoon and comics..
I love...   seems like everything was good about Japan in my mind..




And finally ..
I was here..  in Japan ~
The first feeling was ... Dream comes True ! ( Flying )
am i too over? ahahaha
As everyone feels that Japan is a High expenses country..
On their Food, Accommodation and even Transportation...
But... I found that " Not really " ~
The cost is just similar like Singapore !!

The main different will be their Food is much much better than S'pore !
It's true ~ No matter which restaurant or even a kiosk that selling food,
Just walk in and grab something ..
You will definitely feel 100% satisfaction of the Freshness & Taste !

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The journey start with ...
Pandora ~
lolx... got my Pandora charms in the Airport as it is 20% much more cheaper compare to
normal retail store...





I took Singapore Airline from their February Promotion Air ticket to Tokyo ~
Air ticket is about $630 Direct ... 
It's Cheap!!!!! Including Fine meal + unlimited drinks including alcohol 
with their Superb services...
I'm actually SQ & Cathay supporter ...
wahahha ~ 







Let's check about their Meal ...
My beloved SOBA ! the cold noodle ~
Pork belly Rice with pumpkin...
Some snacks , Bun and butter ...
Orange juice and ice cream ...




And.. after 6-7 hours...
I reached !
Being welcomed with a colorful Board =.=  Welcome to Japan ~
I Don't care, take a photo first    ~  lolx 



Everything seems to be written in Japanese Language..
This is the thing to make you feel that ..
You reached another country ...
=)



After the immigration custom..
Stepped out the exit .. and you will see some convenient stores around you..
My first feeling was...
So cool !!!  Many variety of juices,teas,coffees in both hot and cold fridge..
and also their snacks and bun >v<
I grab a vanilla bun and sandwich + macha Latte...
I will never forget how soft is the Bun and sandwiches ... 
AMAZED me!!!!!







This is the Macha Latte i had....
Great taste... it was so Smooth and tasty ~
by the way...
Guess where am i ?
In the Express train to Shinjuku ...
and the most Wonderful thing is...
You can enjoy your Food & Drink in the train Always !!
I felt that... I was enjoy during the journey in the train...
( usually boring in the train and the only thing can do was just iPhone - game/music )




But look at the Subway Map =.=''
SO MANY different Lines & Stations !!!!!
Crazy ! 



Anyway....
Im still excited and looking forward ... 
How is the City ....
And the Express train took about 45minutes - 1 hour to reach Shinjuku..
I have a quick nap inside the train...



" Jiang Jiang !
Took JR Line and reached Shinjuku !!!
aahaha Can't see me... Night time!!!



Walked and walked..
Really Hungry ... and found this nearby Hotel...
a Sushi store... 




" All at 150 Yen "
But actually is every single piece at 150 Yen..
and Few of them around 300 Yen per piece..
( Still cannot see me ... lolx



It's a traditional type Sushi Store...
The staff there looks professional and polite...




The LAdy staff who took my order..
Looks cute ... like a Cosplayer.. Lolx!!!



By the way...
How am i going to understand this ??!
Luckily ... I have a talking dictionary beside me ...
Ahahahahaha Problem solved !



Hehehe...
Order came!!
And guess what ? They are SO SO SO FRESH!!!!
really different from what i ate before in my Lifetime!!!
Simply stunning!!!!!
The total bill for this meal was around $50 SGD





After the dinner...
Walked on the street and i keep asking : I'm in Japan now ??!
Suddenly feel that,am i came from country side...
“Sua Gu” 我是鄉下來的
:p   Tokyo is really a well developed City and all of the people here is really ..
Well dressing ! 
The buildings are so tidy and the light was attracting during night time..
Enjoy on the scene appeared while I'm walking to the hotel..







>v< 
The most attracting thing was their Cosmetic + Drug store !!!
I can't stop myself to discover more inside the shop..
and so DAM curious about their Local Brands !
More than 90% Brands which is never see before in Asia countries T_T
Feel like want to grab everything back and try One by One !
XD


Great! I grab 3 Pairs of socks at this corner...
All the socks looks great and good quality..
If not mistaken...
3 Pairs was just $15-20SGD



Love their Bubble Hair color ^^
The packaging always attracting!
So Kawaii !!! and Don't know why...
I will have 100% confident when the packaging fulfilled with Japanese words...




This is the thing ..that I want to Recommend!!
A heating sleeping eye cover mask >.<
It heat up when u put on your eyes..
and it helps to reduce dark eye circle,eye bags and help the blood circulation better..
Most wonderful thing is..
You will feel extremely relax after put on this ..


Collagen's Heaven !
Wah..even Mickey one =.=''
They really care about packaging ~ wahaha
From Shiseido.. A Big brand in Japan..




Magazines...
Feel like buying but sooo Big and thick..
Don't want to carry so heavy...
Therefore didn't buy and just browse the cover here... lolx




Talking about the snacks and desserts...
I will never forget the taste and feeling!
Honestly,
I bought more than 5 different types of desser like pudding, swiss roll,bun and cakes
ALL was nice!!!!
I miss you Japan!!!!!







And due to extremely tired..
I grab a little things and walked to hotel for rest..
Spent whole day for flight and train..
no more energy ..
Dang! this is my Hotel located in Shinjuku...
1 Night cost around $100-120 sgd.. i forgot =.=''
Service and Location was great ..
But the only thing i unhappy with Japan was...
They do not have any internet WIFI provided..
You need to pay if you want to use the WIFI,
12 hours WIFI around $7  
even it is not expensive but still feel not convenient at all T_T





Before sleep..
Look at the Things i bought at the very first night in the Drug store...
Hehehe... satisfied !!!






To be continue.....
