We booked our trip to Japan and Korea last year, more than 6 months in advance. I was really excited because I had always wanted to go to Japan and going to Korea was a bonus.
We did some research about Japan before booking the hotels. We quickly realised that hotels are quite expensive and small in Japan but we were still very excited to go.
We started telling Chhori about our holiday a few months in advance so she was so excited about it too. She would tell people and even her friends in Childcare that she will be going to Japan and Korea in such a cute voice.
Anyway finally the day came and we all packed and headed to the airport.
We flew Qantas and it was one of the best flights we have had. The service and food were both amazing and I am definitely going to fly with them more often.
We first flew from Sydney to Melbourne where we had a 3 hour stopover then 9 hours to Tokyo.
Chhori was amazing in the flight with no dramas. She ate her food and was busy watching Peppa pig on her tablet. She napped for a few hours and was fresh again before we landed.
It was evening when we landed in Tokyo and it was quite nice as we went from cold winter to nice warm summer.
After we collected our luggage, we went and got a sim card and tickets to the bus. The hotel was a bit away from the city so it was cheaper to catch a bus from the airport and then a cab the rest of the way.
The hotel was great location with a metro station just next to it but the room was a bit small as we had known.
The bathroom was just enough to fit a bathtub, toilet and wash basin.
The toilet fascinated us with so many buttons. If you don’t know what I am talking about, just imagine a toilet with auto lid and seat where you can adjust the seat temperature. The toilet where you can use water to clean but it is all automatic with adjustable water temperature and multiple water outlet to spray your bottom. The toiles also had features like self-sterilizing nozzles, air deodorizer, adjustable water pressure, noise/music player, warm air dry, night light etc. to name some.
The toilets definitely kept us amused and it was fun to discover the different features while were in the loo.
That day we were too tired to do anything so we just ate dinner and went to bed.
We had an amazing time in Tokyo and I will post about all our experience in the coming post.
Till then take care everyone,
