The season is really wrapping up here. I am in my last week of work. These are my upcoming plans in Nihon:
Mar 18-21: Central Hokkaido Road Trip
Mar 21-25: Visit Kota in Fukuoka
I know Kota from my time spent in New Zealand. He was working at the university (daigaku) and would spend time with Lauren, Karim and Natalie. It has been 5 years (go sai) since I have seen him. I can’t wait!
Mar 25-31: Camping in Okutama and Tokyo Trip with Kyle
Kyle started planning his trip to Japan ever since I told all my climbing friends that I was going to Japan. Kyle, Cassy, Matt and I went to Bishop last last fall. This was our preliminary trip activities list:
- Fuji-Q Amusement Park (visiting here has been my childhood dream)
- Meet Ashima Shirashi
- Stay in a capsule hotel
- Ramen museum
- Bouldering in Okutama
- Buy food-patterned shirts
- Go to the Gudetama store
- Find the 1 Michelin star ramen cup
- Eat ramen
The list has only gotten better with: Round One arcade and games centre, Tsujiki Fish Market, central Tokyo roller coaster, caving, bbq-ing, bPUMP climbing gym and shopping at Harujuku.
Not sure how much of this we will get done or how much I can afford. It doesn’t sound like we will have any fun heehee.
I am hoping to get some more photos up before I leave Hokkaido, but not sure if I will have time.
