hello everyone! ^^
so after the quake and a sleepless night, the paranoid kelly bugged my boyfriend to leave tokyo to safer place
( because they were speculating that there might be a bigger quake that day as.. that morning there was a 6.3magnitude earthquake and they were unsure if it's a pre-shock of a big earthquake or the aftershock for the previous.. )
so we hurried off to HAKONE one day earlier than scheduled...
a place surrounded by mountains and japanese believed that it's safe there.
because the hakone romance car (express train) has halted their services because of the quake, we need to ask the train master for other routes.
they were really busy answering everyone's questions.
the queue for the train to hakone.
it was PACKED
but you can see orderly lines of people queuing outside =D
my luggage =D
*my orange hot yuzu drink <3 *
so after a long ride, we finally reached hakone! <3
checked in at our ryokan.
my fluffly bed
the electric table that will warm your legs..
*i forgot what's that called*
and our private onsen tub.
*because we don't like the idea of going naked into the bath hall.. weird.. at least now we are can wear our swim wear =D *
(well we are not permitted to.. but... but... they didn't know >.<)
and the onsen water is SOOOO HOT and smells a little bitter!
but we felt so relaxed after that!
can nap the whole afternoon!
hungry kids need to EAT!
so we went to the streets to look for restuarants
the place looks kinda dead...
because japanese likes this serene ideal place for a relaxing holiday.
NO SHOPPING! >.<
my dear's " NO SHIBUYA NO SHINJUKU " look
after walking up and down the streets, seeing the same group of people walking pass us all the time...
we settled for this chinese restuarant..
must be famous!
as a chinese, i've to say...
this is the MOST CHINESE chinese restuarant in JAPAN!
the ramen tasted just like Singapore's soup noodles...
probably they are famous because of that?
after lunch, we were reluctant to go back to our hotel as there's nothing much to do!
so we continued to walk around the street that we had already walked for at least 3 times.
finally bought the onsen manjuu
red bean paste inside
there's charcoal manjuu too!
( don't worry.. it's still red bean paste inside..)
and bought our senbei
okay, i looked funny here without my brows..
(just posted it up cause i looked soooo happy!)
and we went back to our hotel!
soaked ourselves in our onsen tub for a while..
it's time for DINNER!!
and our breakfast in the morning!!
this is MAD NICE!
because we were bored by the place..
the next day, we headed back to tokyo instead!
" finally leaving for tokyo..."
but i'm really glad to come to hakone after the quake..
felt so much calmer after that =D
---- my sis's pre-order is still on!! ---
please support her!
