Mari la hadap Japan entry aku.
We decided to go to Japan sebab ... tah kenapa tetiba. Actually I was hell bent on visiting London and Scotland. Tapi sebab kewangan yang tidak mencukupi and I had been there before tapi gatal nak pergi lagi, so I chose Japan and it is cheaper.
I opt for the Masholiday punye package. My personal opinion if I took the flight and hotel option the price is ok la. Dan of course me being me, my place of stay is very important. Not exactly luxury la since I am no royalty nor millionaire, but comfortable enough for me to look forward to go back to the hotel. Also at first I tried to squeeze in Kyoto but found it is way too expensive and too hurried. I don't want to tire my baby out so I had to leave Kyoto out of the itinerary. Too bad. Maybe next time.
We took the night flight because I don't think so I can handle my son during all the 8 hours of flight time. So naik flight, bagi susu, main2 dengan die sat, he slept on my lap. Then I transferred him to the bassinet. More comfy for him and me.

So we arrived in Japan around 7 am kut. Terang benderang dah time tu. Since check in time hotel Jepun ni kul 2 pm so we took our time
Had breakfast. I usually bought this. A no frill snack. It is basically bread smeared with butter and strawberry. Had also bought the maple syrup and peanut butter one. But my favorite and Aziz too, are the strawberry jam sandwich.
And waited for the airport bus that will take us directly to hotel ( antara reason I chose this hotel is due to the airport bus dropoff and pickup )
The hotel location itself is great. It got 7E downstairs. Also some shops, coffee place and restaurants, a halal turkish restaurant ( halal place in Japan usually mean only the chicken is halal, don't order the beef ). Next to 2 station with a lot of frequently used metro line, one of the station is just opposite the road ( and have elevator! Great for stroller!). It is also opposite to Bic Camera where if you are pressed in time to shop in Akihabara you can great the same things ( of course limited la) at almost the same price as in Akihabara.
We reached the hotel around 12 pm. Since it is too early for check in, we decided to walk around the area and have lunch in the form of pancakes at one of the coffee shop. It was a delicious pancake. Seems have forgotten to include the picture. Oh well.
2 p.m. Check in to rest a while. This time I remembered to take picture of hotel room because I know people likes to know ( people as in me, lagi best tengok traveller themselves take the pic since you know the 'real' pic of the hotel instead of the professionally done in the website).
|Bathroom is tiny but movable. Toilet ade washlet! I miss using the washlet to wash my hoohaa.|
|Pandangan depan bilik dengan Aziz sebagai model. Rarely used the TV since the only channel available is in Japanese and if you want other need to pay.|
|Pandangan belakang sikit.|
All in all was very satisfied with the room, not too tiny kalau ikut Tokyo punye hotel size, can open 2 suitcase easily without blocking any path. Very comfy which is important.
Anyway, our plan for that day was only to go to Disneysea. We bought the etickets siap-siap online dah a month before ( you can just go to the Japan Disney resort online and purchase there) and I chose the Starlight one ( entry from 3pm onwards). We arrived around 4 lebih kut.
|Entrance going in Disneysea. Sejukk weh time ni|
Mostly we just roam around and I think we manage to visit all the 'city' , and let Aziz have his fun especially at the Mermaid area. I didn't take any ride and my husband accompanied Aziz to only one much to my trepidation .. walaupon I yang push him to take Aziz for a ride. Aziz tadek perasaan pon. Ceh.
|Lawa kannn.... Aziz loves seeing the lights.|
|Main2 atas ship|
|It is all around and I really want to buy the bucket tapi nanti gerenti bucket lawa tu sekadar menyemak je kat dapur.|
We had pizza for dinner and for a theme park restaurant this is quite good!
Afterwards jalan-jalan kejab dan berkejar tengok night show. Gile ramai orang kumpul keliling lake tu, but it was quite good, then we also saw the fireworks jugak! Double show! I only miss the parades sebab I don't much like parade. But we let Aziz watch some dance number show which he loves. I think sebab die selalu tengok kat tab all these weird costume creature dancing in the screen, rase amazed tengok in real life. The show is all in Japanese but it was not boring.
|Dedua muka penat, but this Arabian Aladdin place is beautiful|
Disneysea in summary is nice. You can opt to roam around ( which is why I opt the 3pm as it would be cheaper) but if you are aiming for the ride which I heard is the best in the world you should be there early morning and run like hell to the fast pass machine!
How we get around Tokyo using the metro :

1. We used Suica card. You can see how you can purchase one here : http://www.thejapanguy.com/how-to-get-a-suica-card/ . However to find that machine is also a pain in the ass, and from what I read you can find it a major train station that have JR line. We bought one on our way to Mitaka Station, we changed station at
2. Google is our friend. I purposely find a hotel with a wifi so it is easier that we google stuffs up the night before. Especially helpful is google map of course. It will list down the train station you need to take or change to get to your destination.
Nanti update lagi ~
