[Trip] Japan, Osaka – Half a day to Sumiyoshi-Taisha and ride on “Chin Den”

Decided to head out to the suburban area of Osaka as we are not staying in the city centre. We stayed near to this ward called Sakai. Not many people have heard of it, however, if you have been to Osaka a few times you might be interested to visit this place. It has always been on my go-to list because of the photos I have seen online. Recently, it has garnered some attention due to the advertising that is done for its annual new year event.

One of the reason to visit Sakai ward would be to ride on the Chin Chin Densha which would pass by the residential area and the older district of Osaka. In this post we will be looking at how to purchase the tram pass and some of the places to visit.

[Move] Taiwan- Transportation to MaoKong for Taipei 101 fireworks

Planning to celebrate a year-end countdown in Taiwan? We will only think of the big concert at the city hall and see the fireworks up close.

Why not head down to MaoKong, a quieter place to have the view of the Taipei 101 fireworks.

As Maokong is not at the city center, it can be quite confusing for the first timer who wish to visit the place. This post would serve as a transportation guide of how to get to MaoKong from Taipei City.

[Move] Japan-Direct Ltd Exp Train Nikko

From my previous post I have covered on how to get to Nikko by changing train at Utsunomiya station, and now I am going to touch on the direct train access to Nikko and getting back to the city.

As you all know that I have missed my direct train from Shinjuku to Nikko and got to take a longer but yet fun route down. But my plan for this trip was to sit on the direct train at least once and yes, I got the chance which at first I thought we would miss it again.

[Trip] Japan, Tochigi – Half day tour in Nikko

Half day in Nikko is actually a little rush, however, it can still be done.  For me, I have put my top priority as the waterfall and Toshogu shrine, which are the 2 main place I would want to visit and as for the rest I could skip them or visit them next time. In the end, I have carved out a simple itinerary for that day.

Where we went?

Kegon waterfall->Nikko Futarasan Jinja (Photo took only)->Toshogu Shrine-> Shinkyo (Bridge) (Photo only)

[Move] Getting bus pass around Nikko, which pass to choose?

Want to get around Nikko? But couldn’t decide which bus pass to get maybe this will be of a help in your planning.

I was actually in a dilemma at first of where I wanted to go. For most of the people, the route they would want to visit is quite easy to guess, which is called the 2 shrines 1 temple tour getting on and off the bus downtown. But if you want to go further down to see the waterfall it would be a little challenging and also time-consuming.
