Japan Tokyo TRAVEL

ASAKUSA • TOKYO 2016

I shamelessly asked these kawaii girls if I can take their photo and they happily obliged, hehe. No guts, no glory!

Finally! I can post another series of travel entries 🙂 I hope you enjoy browsing through the photos I took during my most recent trip to Tokyo!

Since I’ve already posted about Asakusa / Senso-ji Temple before, this entry won’t be as in-depth — more like, photo vomit ! If you want to read all about the area, please check out my previous post — Asakusa \ Senso-ji Temple • June 2015

Took this photo on the way to our Airbnb ApartmentSince I was travelling with a group of friends, we decided to try Airbnb for the first time! Quite an experience I must say. I missed all the perks/facilities that hotels have but at the same time, I love the feeling of “going home” every night. It felt like we were actually residents 🙂 Has anyone tried Airbnb? How was your experience?

It was super cold when we arrived! Tip if you’re not a fan of the cold weather? Don’t visit during winter (January–February). But then again, you can always wear heattech and buy some hot packs (life saver!). I might do a separate entry about some travel tips and essentials soon! Crossing my fingers that I won’t be super busy with…life.

Vintage cameras always catch my attention.

Train system in Japan is super complicated but it’s always more fun if you have friends … to get lost with, lol! My friend Riz bought my old Fujifilm XQ1 camera! I kinda miss it but I don’t regret buying the Fujifilm XT10 since the quality of photos produced is evidently better!

I gave up wearing gloves after the first day. Hot packs — humankinds greatest creation for winter.

I can’t over my fascination with hot packs! I have one in each pocket here 😀

Look at that intricate hairstyle!

Taiyaki たい焼き are small Japanese cakes which you should definitely try! It comes in various flavours like, red bean and matcha!

Cute dog in winter fashion — how cute is that?

My favorite photo spot in Asakusa! By the way, there are rickshaw services right outside the entrance of the temple. You can ride it all around the area at a reasonable cost (plus, some of the rickshaw drivers are cute, HEHE).

Cute plushies and kimono fashion for dogs!

Stalker mode — ON! I think I saw some kimono rentals in the area. That’s next on my bucket list.

Can’t wait to post more photos 🙂  So, anyone going to Japan anytime soon?
