Japan 2017, Hakone

Sunday 19th of March was a bank holiday weekend in Japan, the sun was shining in Tokyo and we thought what a great day for us to see Mount Fuji and the Lalique Museum in  Hakone which lies in the mountains about 1 and 1/2 hrs south of  Tokyo. 347 more words

Smalltown Japan. Odawara and Iwahara

Day 5. November 3. All’s well in smalltown Japan, but for the left foot and the stubbornly invisible beach.

We have to be out of Nobuo’s Roppongi apartment by 10 am. 1,364 more words

いろり家

你試過食完一餐飯,跳住舞咁行返屋企未?

「牛肉蓋飯套餐」: 足柄牛サーロインステーキ丼

日本關東西南部神奈川縣足柄下郡箱根町、 「箱根登山鉄道鉄道線宮ノ下駅」下車後步行十分鐘,上山小路行到一條民宅後巷,才找著的一家只有八個座位的居酒屋いろり家

拜朋友所賜,得知這家小店; 我肯定不是第一個來「朝聖的友仔」。

店面一老一中年的女店東,不懂英語,餐牌也英文欠奉,除非預先做足research抄埋餸名,能點菜,只靠Google Translate及YouTube。

「孤獨的美食家」,一套我只看過半集的日本電視劇,帶我到來。較年輕的女店東展示YouTube內井之頭五郎的面孔,甫見我點頭,就知道我所為何物。

接著就送來照片上的牛肉蓋飯。

女子‧女子‧口未‧口牙!!!

靠山食山,足柄下郡地道的足柄牛,唔會死得人,就像在我第二故鄉Calgary食Alberta beef一樣,無乜得輸。

一年大的牛肉,牛隻是本地天然飼養,食材本身尚盛,方能讓人吃出食物的鮮美。

食物還是其次,重點是她們的殷勤招待及日本人對陌生人的送迎。

當晚大雨正下,我並無雨傘,隔檯坐著一對大約比我大十年八載的夫婦/情侶。男的是從事保險的高木毅先生,他趁生日到箱根一趟。來自日本中部「岐阜县」的他,知道我從加拿大來,十分好奇,主動跟我交談,當時是英語。我們初相識,談的話題也只是簡短表面東西,在對話將結前,他低著頭,想了一想,再問我:「你住在那裡?」我,身為一個外地人,是有一點煞有介事的,內心都會問「究竟咩料呢?」。

最終我也道出地址,他大約知道我住強羅,就問:「taxi together?」

我回應:「Why not」

他又說:「Share?」

我回:「Sure」。 33 more words

Magical Wonderland by the Mountain

Still on our road trip through Japan, this final blog post is about a little less travelled place for most tourists to Japan. Starting on our journey from Tokyo to the central north of Honshu Island, we had stopped at Yamanouchi where the… 1,380 more words

Ernie goes back to Tokyo (Jan 2017)

Introduction

There was little indication on the flight over that our holiday was about to get off to a less-than-ideal start. Skies were clear and turbulence was kept to a minimum, though the lack of a personal entertainment system on the… 2,601 more words

When in Japan...visit Italy

“This is mad!” I couldn’t count the number of times that this thought ran through my mind on my short trip to Japan.

It was autumn in Hakone National Park. 286 more words

Tokyo, Japan March 2017 Holiday

https://whateversamblog.wordpress.com/2017/03/19/tokyo-japan-march-2017-holiday-night-1/?preview=true

My first blog entry is about our recent travel to Tokyo. It is only about 5 hours after we landed back here in Singapore and so I decided to pen down every moments of out trip as fresh as they are by blogging which I always wanted to do for every new experience but sadly, I just couldn’t find time to write. 820 more words
