Japan Trip (26-12-09) Tokyo



For so many years I don't have a chance to vacation together with my family abroad. I think this year would be a very nice and blessed year for me as I was given the opportunity to holiday together with my family in Japan. Initially, I don't have the mood to go holiday but since this year is my last in my school so decided to use the 'benefit' again!

I planned to go Japan for the second time , it is because my family has not been to that country before and I love that country very much . From the fact that , it has the vast variety of different experience to explore and also the money can't buy feeling of being a country which is an ideal clean country . Clean is the terms of everything you see would be a few times physically cleaner than Malaysian's places . One of the unbelievable facts is that the workers in the public toilet would use a white cloth to wipe the toilet bowl after washing it . Even the temple's roof , the workers would climb up till the top to remove the leaves using hands . In Malaysia , I don't think so it is the way we do it .
Plus, the shop workers will be very polite to entertain the customers .

I was lost once I got off from 浜松ちょ Station after taking the Keisei Skyliner from Narita Airport (terminal 2) because we exit from the north exit which lead us to 大門 station. We managed to ask the way to our hotel but my limitation in Japanese makes me difficult to communication . Most Japanese don't speak English , so i have to talk to them in japanese but my vocabulary are limited so when they talked to me with the deeper meaning ,I was confused . Not all the Japanese remember the direction well even the police but they are extremely helpful I showed them the address and phone number , they called the hotel for me and tell me the exact direction i supposed to go . An old man who helped us initially was very kind to us , show us the way to the police station and tell the police what situation we faced , not only that he was willing to spend us the money to take the taxi . But we refused.The hotel was 2 traffic lights away but with many luggages we didn't manage to reach there on time so we took a taxi . That was the first time I took taxi in Japan.

The Smile Hotel which is situated 10 minutes walk from 浜松ちょstation (South exit) . The hotel room was big enough for us . And we like most is the automated toilet bowl which we can hardly find here in Malaysia. Not a single hand movement to clean except the button on the controller .

After we settled everything , we started our tour in Tokyo , 1st up was the Odaiba is a large artificial island in Tokyo Bay, Japan, across the Rainbow Bridge from central Tokyo. It was initially built for defensive purposes in the 1850s, dramatically expanded during the late 20th century as a seaport district, and has developed since the 1990s as a major commercial, residential and leisure area.
We went to the Hinode Pier to take a 30 minutes ferry to Odaiba Island. Ferry stopped us at Odaiba Seaside Park . From there we went to Aqua City shopping center, Panasonic Center, Toyota MEGA WEB, Venus Fort, Shinkiba Station .
