Hanami in tokyo 2017

Here is the breakdown of the spending of my trip, everything exclude shopping. We spent on food, great sushi in the market and fantastic desserts. Also day trip to mount Takao and overnight trip with the most shiawase meal in Hakone. For this trip, we spent about Rm 4260 per pax (exclude shopping). Many “thanks” to the weak currency we are having. The exchange rate was 1000yen = Rm 40. Sigh. Pray hard for a better economy and stronger currency in near future.

Oversea wifi is the best invention ever!!! It is very handy to have one when you are travelling, for GPS location, google translation, for area, restaurants and shops information, for you to keep spamming your Instagram or facebook feed. It is super convenient to have one in your hand. Priced very affordable too. Remember to book at Visondata / Samurai Wifi and collect yours before travelling.

What I love most on Visondata’s device:
– Small and handy, I can just put in my pocket.
– UNLIMITED data at just Rm 20/day!!!
– Super long lasting battery; I hardly rely on the powerbank.
– Sharing up to 5 pax.
– The line was super smooth and fast! Love it max that we kept spamming the social feeds with photos and live scene.
– Wide coverage! I went up the mountain and I was still able to connect. I didn’t find any disruption at all throughout my trip.
– Collect and return at convenient spots.

Highlight of the trip

1. Savour a nice piece of bread in the land of rising sun

2. Queued to sample the creation of Asia’s Best Pastry Chef 2015
This definitely worth my time queuing for their extra delicate and feathery dessert. I will have this post on its own for sure!

A busy market street along the tracks between Okachimachi and Ueno Station; this place has got everything you need here. Clothes, bag, cosmetic, fruits, food and etc. Things are cheaper than many other places! We got the super juicy strawberries all at only 2000 yen.

Forget about Sushi Dai and Sushi Daiwa that are forever in the long queue. We hopped over to the place that was less crowded and came out with super full stomach

Which is taking the photo with this red lantern and of course visit the Sensoji.
