    RTW to no-where in particular

    Next time! It is most certainly worth it. As mentioned in my last TR, there are 12 original castles left. My goal is to visit them all one day....only managed Himeji, Matsumoto and Hikone so far :oops: long way to go!

    Thanks for the great TR. Sorry you couldn't finish it.... What's the story with Himeji? I'm curious ;) Oh and it was a magnificent castle! even though I do prefer Matsumoto slightly...

    2020 Travel Plans

    For once it looks like I had the best timing ever. Feb Japan & Taiwan trip done, got back home 3 weeks ago, no problems! Now just waiting to see what's happening as my next Japan trip is Nov... Maybe Cairns in July? undecided.

    Japan Trip #10 - Chasing snow and onsen during zombie apocalypse

    Ah yes, suppose I was travelling with mother probably would try to fly direct from TPE. The SQ overnight between SIN and MEL is a killer though! Last time I did it, wiped out the whole morning in Singapore. I was so dead, beg hotel to let me check in at 9am and went straight to bed...:oops:

    Japan Trip #10 - Chasing snow and onsen during zombie apocalypse

    With the virus, things are changing so quickly... Must confess I probably will cancel if I'm booked to go in say, early April for the Sakura. Back then it was just mainland China or so I thought. Now that Pandemic has been declared I'm not going anywhere o_O We'll see how things turn out.

    I love Kyoto but Japan is a country with so much variety... This is a very interesting game I'm at 102 now;) Still quite a few places haven't been! I wonder how many points @drron will score?

    Japan Trip #10 - Chasing snow and onsen during zombie apocalypse

    That's it for this TR. I'm booked for #11 in November, let's hope everything is back to normal by then. Haven't done a lot of planning, but probably going to the San-in coast, plus Mie. I do change things around a fair bit during planning stage, so we shall see;)

    Japan Trip #10 - Chasing snow and onsen during zombie apocalypse

    Skip lounge as it's a very early flight. But I regret it very soon 😖 Continental breakfast :(, oh dear. This might be better than @Justinf 's jaffle, but seriously, wtf?! Two hours later I was hungry, this was what they gave me: Finally lunch was served Meh Main was okay. Chinese style...

    Bought the famous Pandan chiffon cake. Compared to this we are stuck in the 90s, no? Apparently you need to pay $8 to walk on that bridge....crazy world!

    Japan Trip #10 - Chasing snow and onsen during zombie apocalypse

    Lots of restaurants in Jewel, I went to Dian Xiao Er for their roast duck 😍 When I was leaving, one of the girls asked: "How today food?" Try say this with the Singaporean accent....took me 2 mins to figure out what she said 🤣

    Japan Trip #10 - Chasing snow and onsen during zombie apocalypse

    Larger ones are "family cabin" - the idea of 4 people getting stuck in it does my headache o_O There are quite a few lounge areas dotted throughout, which is a good idea considering you probably don't want to spend much time in the cabin other than sleeping? The proper lounge has...

    Japan Trip #10 - Chasing snow and onsen during zombie apocalypse

    Landed at SIN about 6.30pm. I could have taken an overnight flight and got back to MEL in the morning, but....6.5 hours is very awkward, you can't have a proper sleep, also I am not a fan of SQ's supper service 😖 So I chose to stay one night in Yotel Changi instead. It was a long walk from T2...
