JAPAN 2018 #2 Update on my planning

Hi guys. So since my previous post, not much have changed really except one thing.......

MY BABIES KAT-TUN HAS COMEBACK TO ME!!!!! OMG i was legit bawling when they annouced it during countdown okay.
and because of that, i've ballot for tickets, so did my friend and we are definitely going to this concert idc.
thus, after flying back from Japan on 3 Apr, i'm going again on 19 Apr LOL.
and this time, aside from my friend who is gonna go to the con with me, I will be travelling with my colleague (ex by then), which is her first time in Japan.
EXCITED

soooo my itinerary is sort of set in terms of where i'm at on which day.

22 Feb - 27 Feb Tokyo (Airbnb)
27 Feb - 5 Mar Osaka (Airbnb)
6 Mar - 12 Mar Fukuoka (Airbnb)
13 Mar - 17 Mar Hiroshima (Hotel-Agoda)
18 Mar - 21 Mar Kyoto (The Millenials-Agoda)
22 Mar - 26 Mar Nagoya (Hotel & First Cabin-Agoda)
27 Mar - 3 Apr Tokyo (Airbnb)

So as mentioned in my previous post, I will be with my friend from 22 Feb - 5 Mar and rn we have booked our disneyland ticket, usj ticket, and we are gonna get fujiq as well as book for a slot at Swallowtail Cafe.
I'm gonna meet 啓さん on 22nd, give him my おみやげ as a お礼 for all the お世話 from my fanclub stuff. thinking of getting him some kaya as well as tea from TWG maybe? as well as おごり him for dinner. hais. all them money flying away.

OH OH OH and also, i've just ordered a Canon G7X Mark II for my trip. I'm not sure if i'm gonna youtube vlog or anything but i definitely want to have it on record so i need to stomach the cringiness of my voice and my face to vlog my whole trip. because come on, i'm staying in capsule hotels, going to hiroshima and fukuoka and many other places. i'm gonna keep everything on data!

JAPAN 2018 #1 Introduction

I have not been updating since forever but imma try to start somewhere.
reason being i'm heading to Japan next year for 6 weeks and I really wanna document it while tripping.
だから、その旅に向けてブログを再開したいと思います。

My itinerary isn't all that complicated yet covers several places that i've never been to or put my heart into.

I'll be leaving SG on 21 Feb arriving in Tokyo on 22 Feb and I'll only fly back to Singapore from Tokyo on 3 Apr.

The cities that I will be staying at is as follows (in sequence):
Tokyo - Osaka - Fukuoka - Kumamoto - Hiroshima - Kyoto - Nagoya - Tokyo - Singapore

After booking my flights, i was actually unsure where i wanted to go.
The bolded cities were definite and I wasn't sure what to slot in between because I didn't wanna stay in a city too long besides Tokyo, which i was the most comfortable in.
So none of my stays in a city exceed a week except maybe my last leg in Tokyo.
I'm not even sure.

But my first leg at Tokyo - Osaka, I will be traveling with my friend, who is a first-timer to Japan.
I'm excited really because she's open to trying alot of things that I've done or wish to do so I can't wait.
Then I will be joined by my mummy in Fukuoka as well as my colleague (by then ex-colleauge) who will be bring us around..
Then I'll stay over at her 実家 in Kumamoto after my mummy head back to Singapore.

After Kumamoto, i will be solo-ing the trip, meeting friends in Nagoya and Tokyo.

A 6 weeks trip is a first-time for me so i was so uncertain about the duration.
After booking the flight (no changes/cancellations allowed), i had regretted both not making my trip shorter and making my trip longer.
shorter because expenses will go off the charts and also because that season as peaked as hell so everything cost a bomb.
longer because i will be ぎりぎり only seeing my sakura and enjoying my 花見.
hopefully my sakuras don't disappoint me when i go next year.
faster bloom okay.

anyways, because it is peak season, i had to compromise alot of my accommodation.
normally i would opt for airbnb that have seperate area for toilet and shower, bathtubs are a must, wifi & tv are a must, and the kitchen area should separate from the bedroom.
and of course, location.
but this time, other then my first leg with my friend that i managed to get my favourite airbnb in tokyo,
i'm only staying at 2 other airbnb at my last 4 nights in tokyo and when my mummy comes over in fukuoka.

the one in fukuoka does meet my requirements but the one in tokyo is way outskirt of the city nearer to haneda airport, which i will be flying back from.
That is partially the reason i chose the one in tokyo but I did wish there were more affordable accommodation in the city area with my requirements.
but at least i get to enjoy my bathtubs for both airbnbs!

as for my other cities, it is a mix of hotels and capsule hotels/hostels.
capsules are a first time for me so i do feel very 不安. because i'm really very こだわる about toilet cleanliness so i was very 真剣 when i was choosing the capsules.
i try to find all the reviews i could and pictures so hopefully the ones i chose are good enough.
I will be staying in capsules in Kyoto, Nagoya and 3N of my last leg in Tokyo.
for both my stays in Kyoto and Nagoya, they are not really the bunkbeds or 2level beds kind of capsule so there's more privacy and comfort but for my tokyo one...
it's the real deal man.
I will be staying in hotels in Hiroshima and Nagoya.
It's been awhile since i've stayed in hotel for when i go to japan so yay to that.
other than the capsule hotels, i can enjoy my お風呂 too which is amazing!
oh wait, but there seem to be bathtubs in the capsule hotels that i'll be staying in Kyoto omg?
I really wish to document my whole capsule experience on here and dayre.
I'll really try my best!
em is asking me to make friends when i stay in the capsule hotels. i'm not sure if i'm able to do so.
i always am lacking in the social sector of my life.

anyways, if i have any updates, imma come back here again!

ok. so i've don't know whether you guys have heard before of あの日見た花の名前を僕達はまだ知らない but ohmygosh it's awesome!

i've just finished watching the finale and damn! i cried like a whining bitch!

seriously. i highly recommend you guys to watch this anime if you prefer your animes to be short and simple. best anime of the season i would say. for me though. since everyone will definitely have different views.

and for people who read this post and got all curious but am-lazy-to-check-it-out.

i'll give a short sypnosis of it. though i think me doing it will not help much..

basically its about(i shall use their nickname since honestly idk which is their real name or nickname):

6 kids who when young, formed their own group called the peace busters. consisting of 3 guys (Jintan, Yukiatsu & Poppo) and 3 girls (Menma, Anaru & Tsuruko). They are what you called BFF kind of a bunch of people. however, one summer, Menma got into an accident and died.
10 years later, Jintan, who was supposed to be the leader of the busters i think, saw an all-grown-up Menma appear in his house. He, thinking that it was summer heat getting to him, ignored her presence. Menma keeps pestering him that she has a wish to fulfill but can't rmb what that wish is , and wants him to fulfill it for her.
And the story takes on from then and it shows how much the other 5 kids from back then, changed in the future, or so it seems... And also how their friendship seems to never die even though they hate/envy each other to the core.

ok. that sypnosis honestly suck. but whatever. it's just a real simple friendship anime to occupy your 1-3days of summer.

I'M SORRY

well. i'm sorry that i'm not doing my dream high meme.
but i'm fucking depressed due to japan being in such a situation.
so wait til i'm in a better mood den maybe i'll do something bout it.
