Once Again i am back to post about my holiday. I guess there won’t be anymore holiday post for the next few months once i am done blogging about it. Anyway, my friends and i planned for a short trip to Japan Tokyo again. This time round will be an event trip mainly for AKB48 2shot event. It was planned last year around november when we balloted for the 2shot event. There wasn’t anything on the first day other than 3 of us gathered at Changi Airport for our flight at 6:55am.
Let me introduced my friends and they are Matthew (Blue shirt) and Kevin (White jacket).
This time round i took a direct flight from Singapore to Japan via Delta Airline. The seats were spacious enough for me. Meal served was nice too. I didn’t catch any sleep as i was not comfortable in taking long duration flight for the very first time. We landed in Narita airport and collected our Mobile Data Sim card from the post office that we ordered earlier on via Cdjapan Rental. It offered affordable prices and we decided to go for it 😀
We bought the narita express pass for tourist. It was so much cheaper and faster compared to last year when i took the limousine bus to tokyo. You can find additional information at https://www.jreast.co.jp/e/pass/nex_round.html. Of course, how can i resist anything sold at Family Mart, so i went ahead and bought the waffles from Family Mart!
We reached the apartment we reserved on Air Bnb. We contacted the owner when we reached Meguro JR station and the host went all the way to the station to bring us to the apartment. It was certainly a very cozy apartment with all the facilities (washing machine, ironing, dryer, microwave, etc) provided.
Went out together to meet 2 of our friends who landed a day earlier than us for dinner. Kevin went ahead to buy his camera and camera accessories. I walked past Ichiran Ramen but as the queue was super long so we decided to give it a miss. After dinner, i bought some strawberry drink from starbucks and it tasted quite weird T.T .
Headed back to the apartment early while matt and kevin bought cup noodles for supper! Of course there was beer too. I tried to take picture of the room before it got messed up by us haha.
I was super tired so i was the one who slept first while they were still “enjoying” the scenery of the apartment. Haha. This concluded the first day of our trip.
=============Day 02 (04 May 2014)=============
Woke up early and i felt quite cold despite the we didn’t switched on the aircon. On this day, 3 of us decided to split up and head to our own destination. Kevin and i went ahead to Tokyo Dome. I was so excited for the 2shot with Akaninger but again i was too late and the sales for the phototaking session ended. Dejavu! It happened twice in 2013 and now in 2015! I failed for 3 freaking times!!! Damn!! Oh well, we still proceed on to watch the Ninninger show in G-rosso.
After the show, we had our lunch at the nearby foodcourt. I bought tartar sauce okonomiyaki! It doesn’t tasted like tar tar sauce to me but it tasted like Egg mayo? There was a “JUMP” Shop next to the foodcourt and kevin wanted to take a look at the products that they were selling. He wanted to get the assassination classroom anime plushie for his sister.
Next, we proceeded to Roppongi for the Naruto Exhibition. It was an exhibition about the entire work of Kishimoto Masashi for Naruto. Unfortunately i was not allowed to take any photos in the exhibition but i bought the event photo book to refresh my memories in the future.
Not wasting much time in Roppongi since there was nothing much there to walk around or look at, we proceeded to Tokyo Tower. Kevin was enjoying his photo taking session with the flowers at the foot of tokyo tower. Oh well…. i followed and took some too.
We headed to the Tokyo Tower One Piece Amusement Theme Park. It doesnt look like a theme park to me though. Maybe the rides or activities are catered more towards the children. I took lots of photos in the theme park since there was no camera restriction logo around :D.
Last but not least, the last stop of Day 02. Kevin and i proceeded to Akihabara to meet the rest for dinner. Originally, Kevin was so against on going to Akihabara because there was nothing that interest him but we somehow “forced” him to tag along!! I took a few photos on the menu available at that period.
Kevin and i ordered the takamina meal since it looked more appealing and kinda filling while the rest order according to their oshi meal. I order Na Nya Dessert meal and i was not really satisfied with the dessert. Ermmmmmm…. Oh well…
How can i not take picture of Nyan Nyan photo at the back of the cafe? Haha.
Spend awhile in Akihabara and tried my luck on the UFO machine and i got NO LUCK at all!!
While on our way home, i saw this two Caucasians with their dog in the bag on board the train. Apparently it was not against the law to bring their pets on to public transport. The public don’t really bothered about the dog actually. How i wish that such act is allowed in Singapore but with the kind of attitude those very typical Singaporean may react…. I guess let’s not have it in Singapore then.
End of Day 02. Did my laundry and hang it under the dryer to get it dry faster. As usual, all of us bought supper again from the family mart. We bought the AKB48 Family Mart T point Card too. I bought AKB48 + NMB48 one. (I do not know where do i put it in my house right now!!)
All of us had an early rest after supper since we had to get ourselves prepared for the following day :D.
