DAY 1Feb 10 2017
Japan is my dream travel destination since I started traveling. Along with sighstseeing as much as possible I'd like to watch concert in this country too. So for my first ever Japan trip, it was an all-out experience. I went there alone, roamed around for five days, visited three cities, watched my favorite Japanese band's concert and went fangirling😁😁
So to start my travel story, first city is Nagoya!✈🗾
Ninoy Aquino International Airport
Chubu Centrair International Airport
Arrived at Chubu airport around 6AM so I had my breakfast at Family Mart in airport.
I arrived at Nagoya Station and got lost.😵 I didn't know which way to the exit. I followed some people and ended up strolling in a mall. After some ups and downs from stairs and escalators, I found a familiar face! No, not an acqauintance but an idol.😂 After taking a picture, I followed some teenage girls and led me to the exit of Nagoya Station. I found Mode Gakuen which is one of the sights I've listed. I felt calm when I saw this building.
I entered Nagoya Station again and passed by a crepe store, I immediately grabbed one. But while holding it, I realized, I don't know if food is allowed inside the train.😱 So I ate it beside the store and it felt awkward, the passersby were looking at me while eating.😨
First stop is my hostel, I needed a homey rest and leave my luggage. The owner was so kind, he let me stay 3 hours before check-in time. When I arrived in the house, the owner told me I'm the only guest. So I owned the house for a day.😂 lucky! でも寂しい😔
Then I started my sightseeing...
Nakamura Kuyakusho Station
I just walked around this vicinity and caught a glimpse of the majestic castle.
Next stop, Nagoya TV Tower...
Nagoya TV Tower
Nagoya TV Tower
Johnny's shop Nagoya
While I'm at the vicinity of Nagoya TV Tower, I did some fangirl tour.. hihi😆
I visited EXPG Nagoya, NHK Nagoya, and Johnny's shop.
While walking around Nagoya TV Tower, I experienced a bit of snow. The temperature suddenly dropped, my fingers felt numb. It was my very first snow experience!!😀❄️
Next stop, Misokatsu Yabaton then Ossu Kannon Temple
Nagoya TV Tower
Misokatsu Yabaton Honten
After roaming around the city, I came back to my hostel to get a rest under the kotatsu.
And at night, I met my college friend and showed me the nightlife in Nagoya. We basically walked around the streets of Ossu up to Sakae. Since it was friday, we saw a lot of teenagers hanging out. Well they don't have classes the next day so why not?
I went back to my hostel and called it a night. My first day in Japan was awesome!
P.S. I slept under the kotatsu because it was warmer under it.😁😁
DAY 2Feb 11 2017
I spent my second day in Japan by traveling from Nagoya to Osaka, a bit of sightseeing around Osaka, and watch concert. For this story, I'll be covering about Nagoya only. So see you in my other Japan story.😁😁
After packing my stuff, ate my breakfast, and prepared my travel to Osaka, I went outside my hostel and found something surprising...
Then I walked my way to Nagoya station while enjoying my sightseeing of snow
Travel time is three hours so I'm mostly asleep during this travel but woke up at some time and saw some more beauty of snow and nature along the way.
Arrived at Osaka Station around 11AM. For my Osaka trip, see you in my next story.
