The Itinerary So Far

Let's see... What's the plan for our 2-weeks' vacation? For this year's trip, it is a bit different for us because a friend of mine will be tagging along.

So far, our itinerary looks like this:
Day 1 - Asakusa 
Arrive Narita Airport at 7.00am, get our JR East Pass and head to Asakusa.
We'll spend the nights in a hotel in Asakusa whenever we are in Tokyo.

Day 2 - Disneysea
Awhole day of fun fun fun!

Day 3 - Tazawako
A day trip.
Our initial plan to spend the night at Tsurunoyu Onsen had to be scrapped due to a change of travel date and we were unable to secure the room we wanted on the new date. :(
We are also thinking of going to a matsuri in Morioka that evening, if the time permits. If we do, we'll only be able to check-in at 12.00am that night!

Day 4 - Kagaya Orchard, Akita 
for some fruit picking trip instead of picking up those fruits at the nearby supa!
* Budo, nashi and ringo to pick!

Day 5 - Yokohama
And a  visit to Bandai Namco Wonderpark. Maybe a meet up with a friend there too...

Day 6 - Odaiba/Ginza

Day 7 - Harajuku/Shibuya 
 and the surrounding area. A visit to Yoyogi Park, maybe?

Day 8 - Asakusa
Maybe check out Akihabara, Ueno or something.
Make sure my friend buys everything she wants to before going back to Malaysia the day after.

Day 9 - Sendai/Matsushima 
Send off my friend to the airport and off we go to Sendai and maybe a trip to Matsushima Bay.

Day 10 - Nagano
A stop at Karuizawa for a spot of shopping is an option
Day 11 - Atami

Day 12 - Asakusa
 last day of shopping for us!

Day 13 - Head home. 


Of course, our plan is always susceptible to change. And I look forward to meeting a few people there too.

So, stay tuned and read where we end up to in Japan!


*Japanese lesson for today:
Budo - grapes
Nashi - pears
Ringo - apples

  2. @Mei Teng,
    That's suppose to be an Arabian costume. We were at Arabian Coast, going in to ride the Caravan carousel. :)

  6. I expect the itinerary to change. I've never gone on a holiday where the plan I set up would run smoothly. But I like the changes too, especially if they are unexpected pleasant changes!

  10. @ECL,
    We don't like the "structured" tours too. Have always like to venture on our own even if that meant we get lost looking for a place sometimes.:)

  12. Why are you going down to Tokyo before you go to Sendai? Wouldn't it be more efficient to go to Sendai on your way down to Tokyo from Akita?
