Tokyo Shopping Haul ( Clothes Edition )

A pleasant morning to all of you lovely people out there! Now that I'm done blogging about our 8 days in Tokyo, let me show you all the purchases I made that left me somewhat broke for the next 10 years. I kid! :D Our main purpose in visiting Tokyo was to sight-see places and eat good authentic Japanese food so that left our shopping to a very minimal time period. So let's start this shopping haul show and tell!

Destination: YOKOSO! JAPAN (Day 08 Departure)

Hi everyone! I hope everyone of you had a fantastic weekend.. Whatever it is that you are going through remember everyday is a new day. A new day to start again and be better. Finally I'm blogging about our 8th and final day in Tokyo. Our departure flight to Manila was at 9:30 in the morning. It takes about an hour of train ride from Shinjuku to the airport; plus we have to be at the airport 3 hours before the flight so left our hotel at 5:30 in the morning! WAAAHHHH!!!!

Destination: YOKOSO! JAPAN (Day 07 Shibuya, Tokyo Central Station, Senso-ji Temple and Tokyo Skytree)

We spent our 6th day in Tokyo shopping so for our 7th and last full day in Japan, I asked my sister that we continue sightseeing because I'm on the verge of being broke. lol. Rin requested that we go to Shibuya Crossing as she is a fan of the movie The Fast and the Furious while I wanted to go see Tokyo Skytree. I have this thing for high places. :D

Hello my darling readers! I just got back the other day from our mini trip to Hong Kong. So let's continue this Japan Travel Diary Series of mine. On our 6th day, we went on a shopping itinerary.  First stop was Takashimaya Times Square which is only a 10 minute walk away from where we were staying, Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku.

Destination: YOKOSO! JAPAN (Day 05 Tsukiji Market, Pokemon Center, Akihabara and Sunshine City)

Good morning everyone! After playing at Sanrio Puroland, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea on our first few days in Japan, we are now up to sightseeing of awesome places. On our 5th day, we decided to have breakfast at Tsukiji Market. I've read blogs that if you go there around lunch time, rest assure you will be waiting for a long time to eat at one of those tiny restaurants surrounding the famous market. You can see this beautiful traditional Japanese mural in Tsukiji Station.

Destination: YOKOSO! JAPAN (Day 04 Tokyo DisneySea)

Happy Monday everyone! For our 4th day, we went to Tokyo DisneySea. This time we went there early. Again, we took the train passing 17 stations and 2 train transfers to reach Maihama Station in JR Keiyo Line. Upon reaching Tokyo Disneyland we still had to take another train ride going to Tokyo DisneySea.

Destination: YOKOSO! JAPAN (Day 03 Tokyo Disneyland)

Good morning my dear readers! Sorting more than 2,500 photos is a very tedious mission so pardon me if it took so long to update the next series of my Tokyo Travel adventure. So here we are on our 3rd day in Japan. We decided to go see the two Disney Parks first rather than sight-see other places in Tokyo so as not to crowd with other visitors on the weekend. My parents do not like amusement parks so they decided to just roam around Shinjuku and Ginza's shopping malls. I posted more than 80 pictures here so I hope you guys won't be bored or get tired of scrolling down. lol.

Destination: YOKOSO! JAPAN (Day 02 Sanrio Puroland)

Here's my photo diary of our Tokyo Travel Day 2. We woke up late. Probably around 9:30 so we left the hotel quarter to 11. Today was Sanrio Puroland Day! As I've checked the website of this amusement park prior to our trip, I saw that the place does not have much rides but rather it has a lot of shows. If you love rides and do not appreciate cutesy adorable things then don't go to Puroland anymore. You'd surely get bored. Our hotel is located near Shinjuku Main Station so I guess it was fairly easy for us to travel to all the attractions in Tokyo. So anyway enough of my narration and let's get the show and tell started!

Destination: YOKOSO! JAPAN (Day 01 Arrival)

Good morning everyone! I just came back from our 8 days Tokyo Trip a couple of days ago. We didn't spend 8 days touring but rather just 6. Our flight from Manila to Tokyo was at 2:30 in the afternoon. It was a 4 hour flight and there's +1 hour time difference between the two cities so we arrived at Narita Airport around 7 in the evening. We took the express train ride from the airport to Shinjuku where we will be staying for the next 8 days. Our returning flight back to Manila was at 9:30 in the morning so we basically just had 6 days to eat, shop and do major sight seeing at the Land of Rising Sun, Japan!

Here's my photo diary of the trip starting with our first day in Tokyo.

Mila's Tokwa't Baboy, Angeles City

On a Thursday evening, we traveled all the way to Mila's Tokwa't Baboy located near MacArthur Highway boundary of San Fernando. The restaurant is situated in a pitch black area where tiny local eateries serve as guiding lights to cars passing by. As you can see, this restaurant ain't nothing fancy! Just a humble small town eatery that serves great authentic Kapampangan favorites.
