Hokkaido Trip Day 1

Hokkaido trip finally, after a 3 years period, got another chance to visit Japan again. This time started with a tour package with Chan Brothers to Hokkaido, followed by a 4 days extension to explore Tokyo again. Even though we had been to Tokyo in 2007 but it seems that there are still many places in Tokyo that we had missed out. Tokyo is indeed a shopping heaven and therefore to me, another 4 days are never enough. Note: the actual date of the trip is stated at the beginning of each post, just for references.

I have make a map which briefly show the itinerary of our Hokkaido trip, this give a clearer view of where we were heading for.

Japan Central Tour Day 6

First day on our own, without tour guide to explore Tokyo. We took an airport limousine bus that dropped us right to the doorstep of Century Hyatt Tokyo. It costs 3000 yen per person to save us the trouble carrying large luggages climbling up stairs if we were to take the train. Century Hyatt Tokyo is located at the west side of Shinjuku therefore today we would walk around this area. My little toe of my left foot was pretty sore at this time due to the extensive walk during the past tour journey but mood stayed good.

Japan Central Tour Day 5

Tokyo Disneyland was our last itinerary for the package tour. Not much excitement here as I have been to the Paris Disneyland in 1994. At the time of visit, there were quite a number of attractions closed down for renovation such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Pooh’s Honey Hunt.
