Tokyo 2019 Pt. 1

Last week, I visited Tokyo for the first time in 11 years. I have no recollection of what it looked like in the past, but I’m sure a lot of things have changed ever since I visited this city a decade ago. I originally came to apply for my US Visa. I could’ve just came

Night Sea Hell

Umi Jigoku is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Beppu. It’s usually open during the daytime, but this time, it also opens at night for a special event! ‘Yoru’ itself means night.

Splurging on Muji products

I can’t believe I did it … but I kinda went crazy and splurged on Muji because they had a 20% sale for almost all items. Apparently, the only branch in this small city is going for renovation, which is why Muji is selling off all of their products with huge discounts. I actually went

Osaka Pt. 1: Umeda and around

My friend and I visited Osaka for our short break. It’s been 10 years since I visited last time. To be honest, I don’t even remember what it looked like a decade ago lol. We stayed at the center of Osaka. Naturally, Umeda became our playground when it comes to shopping and exploring the city.

Catching up from April 2019

Welcome back to my blog, I guess? Lol. I was finally able to get this blog running again after it went down almost two months ago. It was really hard migrating a dead blog. I almost thought that it couldn’t be salvaged anymore. Bless customer service for helping me to get it up again!

This is the last post for the places I visited during my time in Gotenba. We visited the Shiraito Waterfalls, which is located in Fujinomiya city. It took us around one hour and thirty minutes of train ride and half an hour of bus ride to get there from Gotenba Station. For this trip, only
