At 20th September, I had a trip of 2 days and 1 night to Nikko sponsored by JTB. As you all already aware of the earthquake happened at Japan this March, many foreigner are afraid of the radioactive and is not visiting Japan as much as before.
Ops, you can see my name!! haha. As if I scared huh? ^^
Behind the name plate~
But from my point of view, Japan is really safe for now for traveling. And it’s a shame if you didn’t visit Japan since it’s be most advanced and most clean country in the world, not to mention the safety here too.
well then~ back to the trip~ Start from riding the bus~ we gathered at Tokyo Station that day. Then we board the bus and they start giving out flyers and badges~
Last Thursday, I had been to a one day trip to Hakone organized by my scholarship sponsor, Mabuchi Motor Corporation. At their official letter it wrote “奨学生の集会” and I was expecting we are gonna meet up inside some building and talking to each other about our life. But I was really wrong about it. It turned out to be a really fun trip to me.^^
Inside the bus. As you can see it’s raining out there~
I meet up with my friends from my previous Japanese language school, ABK at Tokyo station at about 7:45 a.m and then walked to the destination bus station nearby. It kinda suck to he walking in the pouring rain. Even inside of my shoes had filled with water…
And then it’s time to ride the bus. The girl sat beside me is a Mongolia who study her 2nd year in University. We talked a while and the bus departed.
We had been given these snacks to eat along the journey.
Inside the bus, the leader of the scholarship student had prepared some ice breaking games for us to play. Even though I don’t think it is necessary for me, I had fun played along.
Our first destination is Owakudani that we can take great photos of the smoke released and buy the famous “Black Eggs”. They said that you can live 7 years longer with every Black Eggs you consumed due to it’s nutrients. Bought some to be bring to my home-stay family and some or myself.^^
It had been a month ago during my trip to Mt. Fuji, But I insisted on posting this post up here even though it is late.
The Trip included visit to Mt. Fuji’s 5th floor? (Not sure how should I called it 五合目), Visit Oshino hakkai (忍野八海), Visit Shiroito Waterfall…. And here you are(intensive Photos viewing and caption reading section below.):
Half way on our trip to Mt Fuji. This is somewhere at the rest station.
This is what we have as our Lunch at Mt. Fuji. Not really tasty from my opinion.
