My Adventures In Japan – Day 10

Wednesday 14th November 2012 It was our final day and we only had one big thing left to do, and that was to ride the Shinkansen (bullet train) to Kyoto. During our break at the Skytree yesterday we went to Tokyo station to buy tickets for the Shinkansen. Tickets are quite expensive at around £105…

My Adventures In Japan – Day 9

Tuesday 13th November 2012 We woke up a bit late this morning so swapped the schedule over and did our “last day” things today. We bought one-day passes for the Metro so we could scoot about all over the place, and this cost ¥710.  You can also get a one-day pass which does the Metro…

My Adventures In Japan – Day 8

Monday 12th November 2012 Today we ventured out of Tokyo properly for the first time to visit Kamakura. The JR line train goes directly here from Shinjuku and there’s a really handy tourist information desk within the station.  We went there, got maps of the area and popped into Delifrance for some tasty pastries to…

My Adventures In Japan – Day 7

Sunday 11th November 2012 Despite the turn in the weather, today was another exciting day for me because there’s one thing I really wanted to do when I was in Japan. We got the train to Shibuya, which is a pretty confusing place when you step out of the station! You’re faced with a bus…

My Adventures In Japan – Day 4

Thursday 8th November 2012 We walked to the station taking the same route as yesterday.  If only we’d know while dragging our suitcases up and down all those stairs that the next street along was flat all the way. *sighs* Here’s a bit about crossing the road. Signals are pretty much the same here with…

My Adventures In Japan – Day 3

Wednesday 7th November 2012 Woke up nice and early at 7am and the sun was shining! The forecast said that today would be a cracking 20°C! For breakfast we had tea and pancakes smothered in jam, only to find that they had jam and creamy stuff inside them! Oh well! The kettle here is funny,…

My Adventures In Japan – Day 1 & 2

A couple of weeks ago my sister and I left on our dream trip to Japan and this is the first entry of my travel diary, written from notes I made whilst I was away and some added information I know now! I’ll be posting about the whole trip over the next couple of weeks,…
