Kiki's odyssey through Japan


13 June 2017

dear japan sorry to tell you but I'm really ready to leave you , from the very first day I was over you and the only fond memory I had of you was Bethel it's not me is you
# JAPAN that was # Tokyo, Nagoya, Kyoto and Osaka # each city its own world # cultural discovery, bethel, onsen, japanese hospitality # 大姐,我們很快就能夠見面了 😊
# JAPANESE FOOD ! # sushi, tempura, ramen, curry rice, karaage, oyakodon, soba, udon, gyudon, gyoza, chankonabe, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, yakisoba ... # ... and that's just the beginning # need to come back to try the rest 😊

# Kyoto # a place of traditional architects and kimono wearing is the norm
# philosophers path # ... is a short path of leaves and trees # ... left me no more or less wiser # truly beautiful but sadly underwhelming

# one crazy hike # never again 😂 # emotionally, I think my tolerance for Japan is to the breaking point or maybe I'm just over travelling
# who's up for some traditional natural onsen # kawane spa # japanese hospitality # food, spa, food, spa ... wedding anniversary ... and a steam choo choo train

# tactful: the most unique and private way to eat ramen # blunt: the most weirdest and loner way to eat ramen # this is really getting over the top ... # japan is really quite weird ...

# and the award for the longest wait for pancake goes too ... # sure it's arguably the lightest, fluffiness and tastiest pancake I've ever taste but not it's not worth the hour long wait ... 😪 # waiting for food in the most efficient and time poor country ? 🤔
# a dedication post to the weird and wacky fashion of Japan # gothic, traditional, impractical, unisex, anything really # even old men is in the thick of it ... seriously?!
# a walk through Meiji shrine # the shrine that everyone talks about # i don't feel any less or more enlightened after the walk # is there something wrong with me, jap is so ... boring ?

# relations were destroyed and a lot of brain cells were killed just to eat ... 9 pieces of this # one word: underwhelming # tsukuji market # Japan , was my expectation of you too high ?
# out and about in Shinjuku # kimonos along the city streets # highly complex and crowded transportation network # unique and unconventional architect
# the imperial garden # apparently the emperor is trapped inside # underwhelming ... just like the weather

# can you believe this line for what ? # a bowl of über salty and thick ramen 🍜😑 # When I say uber, I mean UBER ... jap ppl have no tastebuds ? ... kidney stone much ?
# we nearly missed our flight to Japan # touch down , collect luggage, catch shuttle bus, checkin ... within 30 mins (stupid transfer arrangements 😑) # luxury interiors of Japan Airlines saved the day # never again
