Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan!

Ok, mabilisang post toh. I am in Osaka now but hahabol ako sa mga ganap the last few days..

The day na paalis kami sa Tokyo to head to Kyoto, the group decided to wake up extra early for the TSUKIJI MARKET. If you are planning to go, you can go at around 4am to see the fish bidding but if lalafur lang naman 6am would do. Unfortunately, d ako nakagising due to stomach cramps so si V nalang ang gumora.

SUPER FRESH! Ng isda at nila Liz and Rob! haha!

In short, palengke lang talaga sya. But bongga coz at least you see the process ng lafur.

Some restos- yung sikat best in line daw. Like 2 hours ang hintayan that’s why people go extra early. But meron naman ibang choices sa gilid if d nyo bet maghintay.

Make sure to wear rubber shoes or boots, medyo d uubra ang heels dito

Pagnakita nyo toh, magpauto narin at magpaphoto! haha! Liz!

Nix!

V!

Having sashimi for breakfast!

Then right after papunta na kaming Kyoto. Guys, hindi na ako makilala sa lamig. Lahat ng pwedeng ipatong pinatong ko na. Pati sa ulo ko. Haha!

We took the JR rail pass to Kyoto. From Tokyo, mga 3 hours sya. So bonggels.

Train ride. This is called the Shinkansen train. Super bilis nya, you can use it to travel from different parts of Japan. Again, purchase the JRS pass outside of Japan para ma-avail nyo yung tourist discount. Ask your travel agent 🙂

Ang linis ng train nila!

Before you hop on sa train, check out the Bento boxes that they sell sa labas. Ang cute cute!!! Nauto naman ako at 3 meal ang binili ko for myself! haha!

Grilled dish for V!

In Kyoto, best in avail kami. We wanted to stay in a traditional Ryokan! This is how it looks!

With matching manang na best in outfit! Ganitohin ko narin kaya manang ko! haha!

Layer to the max! haha!

Upon arrival they serve you tea the traditional way. Ang aliw dito, sabi namin ni Nixy. Yung feeling na brownout kasi chikahan lang ng chikahan ang ganap! Me, Raj, Nix and V shared a room. So best in tawanan na naman!

Tawang tawa kami ni Nix. Look… hirap magpigil! haha!

After that we walked to their market, NISHIKI market. Bonggels dun, make sure makaikot kayo.

May kalaban na naman ako… ANG LAMIG!

Nix, Raj and Me!

Alam nyo na toh!!! Basta may rainbow colors… ANDUN AKO! haha! GOW BECKIES!

Inside the market, you will also find a mini temple. Cute!

D + V

Complete na naman kami! Yey!

After the market, gora na kami sa hotel where they served us a traditional meal. Ang daming lafuk! So if you are planning to stay in a Ryokan, must try yung dinner service nila. Make sure to ask if it’s part of your accommodations!

Day before we head to OSAKA! We decided to take a tour. SInce our train to Osaka is at night pa naman. Avail ang day! Gow lang ng gow!

Natatawa na sila sakin, kahit daw patong patong ang suot ko, makikilala daw ako dahil best in lippy ang ganap. Walang patawad sa summer colors! haha!

We went to 3 sites, eto yung isa.. Golden Pavillion! GOLD NA GOLD! Betty Mae ko sya!

JUMP SHOT!

V!

May nakakatawang ganap, nawala si Liz! haha! Tapos, ang nagpakahero pa na hanapin sya ay si Nix, na isa pang best in walain! So in short, we had to get off the bus, keri lang naman kasi last stop narin and bongga narin so we can head to lunch. Nakakatawa how we saw them, best in running! haha!

For lunch we saw this place. Please try! Bongga sya. We got the set meal, iba ibang ways to cook crab! Pakak! I think this chain is all over in Japan kasi nasight ko din sya sa OSAKA!

CHERRY BLOSSOMS! At last ng blossom ka na! GOW!

D + V

We decided to walk around Kyoto and head to Gion- the Geisha district

May bonggang river dun so if betty mae nyong magchill… stay sa restos sa gilid. bongga ang view

Wala na naman si V 🙁

Sumosolo nalang! haha!

In fair, nakakaliit ng pores ang lamig ha!

GION Area, you would see the geishas or student geishas walking around. Mga 4:30-5pm sila nagliliwaliw!

Ayan oh!

We found a cute resto by the river, so bonding moment!

Chika and wine!
