Hello again! We had such a great sleep tonight and we were totally ready to start our day with a superb breakfast. The hotel provided not only a nurse style nightwear for free (will add a picture soon), but also a typical Asian breakfast. We were fooled by the idea that the hotel had a… Continue reading Shirakawa-go & Takayama
We finally left Tokyo. It actually took a while… Even riding the Shinkansen, which cruise speed tops 300km/h, after 20 minutes from the window sit we could still see Tokyo buildings. After a while they made space to a different landscape. Despite going so fast, you can barely feel it. The ride is smooth and quite.… Continue reading Kanazawa: the Golden Marsh
As we reached Shibuya Station, we made our way to our new Airbnb place. The first impression was “let’s run away from here” but we gave it a chance. Thinking about it now, we should have done it. The place was not really clean, to use a euphemism. The room had a couple of mattress… Continue reading Back in Tokyo
We arrived in Kamakura that it was already night. Luckily the hostel was close to the station. It was actually behind the rail road. Despite being so close to the railroad we didn’t hear any train noise during the night. The hostel was small, well hidden, with a I-am-not-going-there entrance. The inside was actually really… Continue reading Kamakura: the green escape!

We took our time to pack our backpack again, and went out to have breakfast… at the Tsukiji Fish Market. Before you ask, yes, we had breakfast chewing sushi, sushimi and… Continue reading Glimpses of Tokyo
Yesterday night, after we found home we took one of the greatest showers human beings ever experienced. After getting clean we headed out for dinner. Being just few minutes walking from Shibuja crossing we went right there. Despite being quite late, the place was incredibly full of people. The Shibuja crossing truly is amazing: waves of people… Continue reading First day in Tokyo
Not much to say about the flight from Dubai to Tokyo. The airplane was huge. Two floors full of smelly, tired looking people. Personally I slept most of the time (after spending one hour playing Zelda). Food was served twice, at seemingly random times, fucking up completely our already messed up biological clock. Finally we… Continue reading Finally Japan!
