Vacationista: Nagoya, Japan (Day 6: Going home)

Vacationista: Nagoya, Japan (Day 6: Going home)

Since this day is basically our travel-back-home day, we didn’t want to go far from our route, even though we had a 9pm flight. We took our time checking out from the hotel, left our luggage at the hotel concierge then had lunch at the sushi bar I wanted to try, conveniently located at the Nagoya station. The famous rotating sushi bar is a must-try in Japan! I love, love, love their sushi! So…

I really try my best to visit supermarkets whenever I go abroad because I love grocery shopping. I can spend hours in a grocery store, reading labels and looking for new products. Haha! So for today, we actually went back to Osu in the morning, had lunch there then went to Kanayama to find their huge (biggest I think) supermarket. From the station, we rode their shuttle bus for free and found…

Vacationista: Nagoya, Japan (Day 4: Osu Shopping District and Sakae)

What’s a trip abroad without shopping! Back in Nagoya, the Osu district is one of the known shopping places and hang out areas. Which seemed true since we went there on a Sunday, and boy was it packed with foreigners and locals alike! It’s easy to find too since you just get off of Osu station and after a few minutes of walking, you’ll find the district. Before reaching the shopping area itself,…

Vacationista: Kyoto, Japan (Day 3: Bamboo Grove and Fushimi Inari Shrine)

Since it was already rainy season in Japan, we grabbed the opportunity to go to Kyoto on our second day while Mr. Sun was still out. We booked for non-reserved seats in their bullet train, about Y10000, roundtrip. Riding their bullet train is a must-try since they’re known for that. As one of the fastest trains on earth, why not shell out? Riding it was like riding a plane but felt like we were…

Vacationista: Nagoya, Japan (Day 2: Noritake Museum and Nagoya Castle)

Our first day was spent being super tourist-y. We took the subway going to Nagoya station, the main station which brings you everywhere. From there, we took the hop on, hop off sight seeing bus. Fair warning that their subway system is really big and quite daunting for first timers. In my eyes, it was really complicated as I’m not really good with maps or directions. Good thing my sister is so…

Vacationista: Where to stay in Nagoya, Japan (Day 1)

Vacationista: Where to stay in Nagoya, Japan (Day 1)

Was finally able to visit the beautiful country of Japan! It was roughly a 5-hour flight from Manila to Nagoya and since we took the afternoon trip, we got to Japan International Airport in the early evening. Getting off the plane, we were immediately greeted with a warm welcome from the Japanese airport staff and all I could say was, “I know I’m going to like it here!” The Japanese are known to…

LAND OF THE RISING SUN. One of the most fascinating (not to mention most expensive) countries I’ve been to. Such a beautiful place with such amazing people.
