TRAVEL DIARY: ASAKUSA AND ODAIBA

Ota City

During our walks from the hotel to Kamata station, we always pass by the Ota City office which has a huge digital thermometer outside. Day four was the coldest day that we experienced in Tokyo. 

The temperature when we went out in the morning was 2.7 degrees Celsius, dropping to 1.5 degrees Celsius on our way back to the hotel. 

We experienced sleet (rain with snow) while we were in Asakusa and it was raining hard while we were in Odaiba.

TRAVEL DIARY: UENO PARK AND AKIHABARA

Ueno Park

From doing a city tour yesterday, we decided to visit Tokyo’s famous Ueno Park. 

Ueno Park prides its rows of cherry blossom trees during springtime. However, we were in Tokyo last February, which is still considered as wintertime, and most of the trees have not yet bloomed. We were still lucky enough to see a few trees which had started to bloom already. 

I can just imagine how magnificent the park will look like in spring.

TRAVEL DIARY: SHINJUKU, HARAJUKU AND SHIBUYA


After having a good night’s sleep the previous night, we woke up full of energy as we prepared for our first touristy day in Tokyo.

TRAVEL DIARY: NARITA AND KAMATA

For our honeymoon, we initially planned to go to the beach and lounge around. However, since we wanted to maximize the vacation leave that I took from work, we skipped the beach and decided to book a 7-day Tokyo holiday.

JM is a big fan of anything Japanese, so when I brought up the Tokyo honeymoon idea with him, he responded with a big thumbs-up sign.

FAMILY BONDING AT VALENTINO RESORT AND SPA BATANGAS

I just got back from a long weekend holiday in Manila, where our family went on a summer outing. 

My sister was in charge of looking for a resort, and she found one in Batangas - Valentino Resort and Spa.
