JAPAN TRAVEL : ADD 28 YEARS TO MY LIFE SPAN AT HAKONE

I can't even stand to be in concrete jungle for long. I did the impromptu trip using the Odakyu Limited Express, Hakone which is only just 85 minutes from Shinjuku. Hoping to catch a glimpse of the Great Mount Fuji...which I only saw it for a while before it was covered by the cloud and disappear. It suppose to be another train ride and then follow by rope way and so on but I was told the only transport for this tour is bus. This is due to there is volcanoes activities nearby. isk isk isk. Its dangerous to use rope way and train. Well...if something happen its not easy to escape using those transport.  Too bad for me because I unable to take that and enjoy the view but to me just take it easy and enjoy what ever meant to be for me next! After the bus ride , I took the pirate cruise ship for sightseeing along the Lake Ashi. I really enjoy standing on the deck for 30 minutes and the beautiful natural view. Hakone location is by the foot of Mount Fuji and this

JAPAN TRAVEL : MET FELLOW MALAYSIAN VENDOR AT TSUKUJI MARKET

Time to say goodbye to Kanazawa for Tokyo then say 'Sayonara' to Japan. I woke up early to take Shinkansen to Tokyo. Since it was a long journey ahead. Not much appetite  though so I made this instant miso clams soup. Look at that 'kawaii' clams. You pour the miso sauce and hot boiling water on it and it open like that. DAEBAK! Taste? Refreshing hot miso soup . Not bad! If in cold weather will be nice. I don't eat the clams though....afraid stomachache. Who knows.... so need to take extra precaution. Then bought some sandwiches and cinnamon rolls for my train ride picnic. Reach the busy Tokyo station. I have been at natural and country side for few days. I am a bit culture shock when reach to big city of Tokyo. I don't like it at all. Everywhere is big tall concrete building. Everyone walk like 'no soul' robot! Haihhhh!!!! Most of Japanese food is cold. It look beautiful but the cold but is not to my liking at all. Taste ok if its hot

JAPAN TRAVEL : WELL PRESERVED OLD TOWN AT TAKAYAMA THE SHOGUN CITY

From Shirakawago, I move on by bus for one hour journey to Takayama where I will take train back to Kanazawa. It was around 2pm and still have time left for me to explore this by the way city of Takayama. Not much that I know about this City in Japan's Gifu Prefecture. It was unplanned exploration. I took the self tour walking guide map from information counter which near the bus terminal then went to reserve seat for my train ride to Toyama for Kanazawa. I reserve seat for around 5pm train. I think should be enough time for me to walk around this interesting city. Aihhhh!!! Kawaii! Late lunch at nearby Japanese Noodle Shop. This is first time I enter this kind of place for meal. I choose Yama-kake Soba which cost me 600 JPY.  Yama-Kake-Soba is hot soba noodles in bonito broth garnished with grated yam and raw egg. Haih!!! I should have order Sansai Soba which comes with wild greens. Yama-Kake Soba kind of sticky with yam. I still finished my meal because it

JAPAN TRAVEL : NATURAL MAGNIFICENT VIEW OF TATEYAMA KUROBE ALPINE ROUTES

My leg still tired and body still aching from Kamikochi jungle marathon the day before. I woke with positive mood expecting new adventure to my Alpine Routes plan. The Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is know as the "Roof of Japan". The route passes through the dynamic scenery of Mt Tateyama in the Japan Alps. It is traversed using variety vehicles with an elevation change of 2,400 meters from Toyama Prefecture of Nagano Prefecture. Remember, Japan is four seasons country. So view change according to season. I was here on 29th September 2015. My target for the day : * Matsumoto to Tateyama (9 hours Alpines routes) - Check out from Matsumoto * Tateyama - Toyama ( 1 hours) - I need to reach at Toyama before 6pm to collect my backpack. * Toyama - Kanazawa (35 minutes) - overnight at Kanazawa Alpines Routes (A 90km routes that connect Shinano-Omachi with Toyama divided into 9 sections with different type of transport and walking.
