Minsan nangarap akong magkaron ng sariling travel show. Dahil hindi naman ako celebrity, nag self-produce nalang ako :-)

Inspired by Sandy Daza's Food Prints and Travel Channel's Pacific, I asked my husband to take videos of me and follow my lead during our 10-day travel in Japan. (hindi lang producer, director na din!)

Click here for the 10-day itinerary

We stayed in Tokyo for 5 days and here is our itinerary:

Day 1
Arrival 
Check-in at Hotel Horidome
Shibuya Crossing
Kabukicho, Shinjuku
Day 2
Odaiba
Ginza
Tokyo River Cruise / Sky Tree
Harajuku
Day 3
Ueno Park
Tokyo Imperial Palance
Sensoji (Asakusa) Temple
Roponggi


Day 4
Tokyo Disney Sea



Day 5
Travel to Fujiyoshida

The video below highlights our Tokyo trip. It was tiring yet happy that we were able to pull this off without any guide. Hindi kami naligaw! yahooo!




Tips and Tricks 

1. Buy a 4G Unlimited internet SIM. It is easy to get lost in Tokyo. You need google maps for directions and local train schedules and apps like Hyperdia for shinkansen schedule. Thank me later!

2. Buy a 72-hr Tokyo Subway Metro Card. It will save you money and a lot of time than buying train tickets using the machine.

3. If you are visiting more than 7 days in Japan and will also be traveling to Osaka, get a 7-day JR Pass. It actually depends on your itinerary and length of stay, pero if magpapabalik balik kayo, this is super sulit.

4. The average meals in Japan costs around 1,000 yen or 500 pesos, sa mga nagtitipid, you can get real meals at 7-11 for only 150 to 500 yen or 75 to 250 pesos. Try also Yoshinoya, our comfort restaurant in Tokyo. 

5. Good Luck!

What I love about this hotel is that they provide their guests free use of smartphone with unlimited internet which you can use outside during your stay in the hotel. But of course, you have to return it upon check-out.

It is also near subways which will take you about 10 to 20 minutes walk
