Japan Trip 2012 – Part 1

May 20, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Just came back with Chibi from the best trip I’ve ever had in my life. It was an absolute adventure! 3 weeks of sightseeing and discovery in Japan and 1 week of shopping and seeing relatives in Hong Kong. The main highlight of this trip is obviously be Japan as it was my first time visiting.

I’ll start off by saying that Japan did meet my expectations and was a super exciting place to check out! I’m glad my first time was with Chibi because I love how we can just freely travel, discovery and experience everything together at our own pace =). It really is an unforgettable experience.

And as you would’ve guessed, we took lots of pictures! Everything was so interesting we just could’nt resist snapping photo’s of just about EVERYTHING. All photo’s shown are in chronological order.


When we arrived, our mission was to make it to Shibuya. It was a bit of a challenge as we spoke zero Japanese, had all our heavy luggages with us and more importantly – it was getting dark! We caught the Narita Express (my first japanese train experience, OMG it was COOL!), but by then outside was already pitch black. However, little did we know that getting dark would be the least of our concerns…We finally arrived to our first destination – Shibuya.

Shibuya station Hachiko exit. Also where the famous Shibuya intersection is. I was blown away when I saw the lights, billboards, people and also Kyari Pamyu Pamyu promoting CANDY CANDY on the main TV advertisment.
