    Exploring Nikko

    May 12, 2016 in Japan ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    Today we headed north out of Tokyo to Nikko, a mountain region of Japan known for its Shogun heritage. We travelled by train from Asukusa on the Tobu line which took us through outer urban Tokyo and then rural Japan. Lots of rice paddies and vegetables and flowers being grown. The train was interesting, we had to travel in carriages 5 and 6 as they were decoupled from the rest of the train for the final leg into Nikko. We had a brief look at Nikko and then on to Kinugawa where we are staying for two nights. We are intending to check out the Toshogu Shrine and Kegon falls tomorrow. Will update you then.Read more

    Around the World in a Day

    July 15, 2016 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    We woke up 7am bright and early and went for our buffet breakfast. Agasei got a lot of food and she managed most of it. She must have been starving because she missed dinner the day before. That set us up nicely for our trip to Tobu World Square, which is one of those places that had landmarks in miniature form. The models were so detailed you could tell a lot of work had gone into them, even in the information centre you could see the detailed schematics of the replica buildings. Agasei was snap happy again taking selfies with everything and anything. She even snapped me being boiled in a huge stock pot 😁

    Once we had finished touring the place we went to the cafe for some ramen and gyoza before getting the bus to the train station read for Tokyo. I do like my gyoza and I'm getting better with my chopsticks I think 😌
