Japan, Japan!!!

The famous "Shibuya Crossing"

Warning...
This is a super duper late post :-)  

So, as I was saying, after 48 long years of being hiatus in the blogging world, I'm back with my travel last year in Japan.

Who would have thought that I'll visit Japan too soon.  Please don't get me wrong, it's in my bucket list but never in my wildest dream that it's happening too soon, because I thought I'll tick that off in my bucket list within the next five years.  But you know, GOD really moves in mysterious ways and it will come when you least expect it.  And tadahhhhh, here comes my Japan adventure.

But before that, let me share with you how we've come up with the idea of the Japan thing.  It all started during the birthday celebration of our dear friend Heinrich in Baguio over random chit chat and bucket of beer, so I thought that it's one of the maboteng usapan only :-)
Planning was almost a year since we got a seat sale from PAL in February of last year and flew to Japan by November.  Too sad, the beloved mother of Heinrich wasn't able to join us on this trip due to unavailability of her passport.  But that's life, we need to move on and pushed through with the trip.

So, shall we start?  Here comes my Japan adventure.  Meet my Japan travel buddies Heinrich and Ian and we hashtag this trip as #JapanJapanSagotSaKahirapan :-)
