Hakone & Fukuoka

March 24, 2012 in ❤︎I LOVE JAPAN❤︎ / Hakone / Japan / Kyushu

Trip to Kyushu!

I have been sitting here forever and i had no idea how many pictures i have uploaded, and i don’t even Photoshop my pictures anymore cuz use some hipster instagram filter.

We went to Fukuoka, Kumamoto and Kagoshima, you probably have no idea what those are, is okay, neither did i. Those are the major cities in Kyushu, which is at the west side of Japan , and very far from Tokyo. Kyushu is maybe not as popular a tourist spot for Malaysian because there isn’t direct flight there.

But you can just take a domestic flight. It will be very expensive though. Maybe that’s also why very few foreign tourists visit there because it’s true that traveling domestically in Japan could be more expensive than the trip TO Japan itself. #truestory.

But you guys can give it a try if you already have been to Tokyo and Kansai! Every single city in Japan is interesting. I love Kyushu! This coming April i will visit different part of Kyushu again! Maybe Okinawa too omg!

Damn you totally owe me one, Tourism Japan.


Sushi at Tsukiji before leaving Tokyo.


Would you PLEASE look that how fat and thick that piece of squid is?!


Harajuku crepe!


I had mixed berry millefeuille crepe one.



En route to Hakone, which is about an hour +’s drive from Tokyo!

There’s still snow everywhere.



The only reason we drove all the way to Hakone was to visit the shrine, because miracles happened there. To cut a long story short we were there to say our thanks for our wish has come true. If i have time then only i tell the long story lol.

If you are super #foreveralone and can afford it maybe you can try praying at Hakone Shrine too lol.



You see snow like damn shiok liddat right but actually it was super awful.

It wasn’t snowing. it was RAINING. Like almost throughout my entire stay. You get wet and it’s super cold -_-


Mochi and matcha


I always always buy lucky charms at shrines because i think LUCKY CHARMS ARE LUCKY. Remember the omokuji i got from Kyoto? The prediction came true wtf. Mother of Japanese gods.



At Haneda airport waiting for our flight to Fukuoka.


Ichiran ramen, recommended by my readers! I love you all so much!

I feel really really lucky that i always get awesome recommendations and suggestions whenever i ask. It feels like wherever new place i go, there will be some of you who have already been there and know what’s good.

I’m very thankful and here’s me trying to pay back in return by blogging more and hopefully it gives you guys a better idea what to do in Japan!!



Went to Dazaifu in Fukuoka!


A strange looking Starbucks.


Ume (plum blossom) already blooming! It’s like a prelude to the beautiful sakura photo




Just like sakura it comes in many colors too! Took me like 10 minutes to get this picture cuz stupid iphone won’t focus. -_--



And then we planned to visit Kumamoto (south of Fukuoka)! And although i have been to Japan so many times, this is my first ever Shinkansen ride!


Looks so canggih right!!!


Inside the train.

Ok end! Continue in next post!
