I’m back with an overdue blog entry from months ago. Here’s the continuation of our 9 days in Japan backpacking series! Once I’m done with this (almost halfway… go Kaila go!!), I will post our itinerary exclusively on patreon (for all tiers).
As I was editing the photos, I couldn’t help but smile and reminisce about these times during our backpacking trip. It was a rainy day for us but the weather didn’t stop us to visit one of the dreamiest places in Japan for me!
We stayed for a few days in Hiroshima. On our last day, we checked out early from our airbnb and put our backpacks inside a coin locker at JR Hiroshima station.
* How to go to Rabbit Island from JR Hiroshima Station *
Take the train bound to Hiro station. From Hiro, get the train going to Tadanoumi. Use Google Maps to find the port within the area. For the access guide, this link is helpful.
*some handpicked photos from the 100+ photos lol*
Friendly tip, buy rabbit food from the grocery (if you can) to save money. We bought this cabbage from a FamilyMart kombini adjacent to the Tadanoumi train station.
Enough of the teaser photos, let’s get started with some narration!
Starting the day right with morning journaling ~
How are you guys? 元気？ I hope you’re all genki (good)! ^^
Yesterday, me and my friend Kiko met up at Kawagoe to visit the insta-famous Starbucks branch & to finally experience the Wind Chimes festival at Kawagoe Hikawa Shrine.
And oh btw, you can watch the early viewing video on my patreon~ heehee! 🎐
Video will be released within the week! Please stay tuned!
I really missed exploring Kawagoe. I went here alone and with my friends before in multiple occasions. We also had some work-related photoshoots here before. Going back with a friend really felt nostalgic for me!
For many years, I would always miss the Wind Chimes event at Hikawa shrine. Not anymore this time, yay!
For today’s blog post, I’m going to share something special!!
This blog entry is about my lovely experience at Oedo Onsen Monogatari. To those who don’t know what “onsen” is, it’s the term for hotspring in Japan. If you wanna try onsen for the first time in Tokyo, I suggest going to this place since it has many facilities you can enjoy besides the actual onsen itself! ^^
It’s so nice to take photos around the place so definitely fun for those who want to snap photos & pretend they’re back in Edo period in Japan, haha!
Walk around in your chosen comfortable yukata. You can also dine (sushi / ramen / Korean food?!), have a foot spa, enjoy the arcade, and so much more!
Read the entire post until the end to find out about my favorite things to do in Odaiba!
For the first number, of course, it’s Oedo Onsen haha!
One rainy afternoon in Shimokitazawa and Shinjuku. 2 photography enthusiasts. Long conversations.
Brought Lina to my favorite cream puff shop in Shimokitazawa, Tokyo.
