Solo in Tokyo (Day 5): Arakura Fuji Sengen Jinja Shrine

I know I've been saying this for every day of this trip so far, but honestly hands down, this is the highlight!

Writing about it now, everything already feels like a dream... 🌸❄ For my… Continue reading Solo in Tokyo (Day 5): Arakura Fuji Sengen Jinja Shrine

Lessons from An Escape Room

I'll go straight to the point: the heaviest take away that I had from this experience is that --- any activity that involves signing a waiver means that you are about to partake in a high-risk activity. I was late to realize that Escape Room games are included in that category. Based on a template… Continue reading Lessons from An Escape Room

Solo In Tokyo (Day 4): Wandering Around Akihabara

This might be one of the most spontaneous day I had in Tokyo. From the way I began my day to the places I got to visit to, I just went with the flow and followed where my instincts led me to go. "Woke up early" I was soooo exhausted the previous night that I… Continue reading Solo In Tokyo (Day 4): Wandering Around Akihabara

Solo in Tokyo (Day 3): Exploring More of Shibuya

After my visit to the Meiji shrine, my next activity was to grab a quick lunch before going to my next location. Well I already knew where I had to go. My boss, who has been to Japan several times, recommended this takoyaki place named Gindaco Takoyaki. Thanks to Google Maps (as usual!), I saw… Continue reading Solo in Tokyo (Day 3): Exploring More of Shibuya

Book Reads: The Shack (William P. Young)

I first heard of "The Shack" during my vacation at the province during Holy Week this year. One of my cousins was recommending we watch this movie to be aired on local TV. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to join them. Fast forward to a few weeks and I was back at work, I randomly mentioned… Continue reading Book Reads: The Shack (William P. Young)

Solo in Tokyo (Day 3): Meiji Shrine

As the days of this dream sequence (a phrase I have fondly used to refer to this trip) are passing by, I was learning more and more about myself. This is the first time I have been alone for days in a different country, and I am experiencing lots of new things, and thus learning… Continue reading Solo in Tokyo (Day 3): Meiji Shrine

Solo in Tokyo (Day 2): The Unexpected Encounter

This happened in my return to Sumida Park. After my quick stop at the Ushijima Shrine, I began walking back to Sumida park grounds. As I was passing by the park with the pond (and with all the locals doing hanami), this memorable event started to take place. A young woman, around my age, who… Continue reading Solo in Tokyo (Day 2): The Unexpected Encounter

Solo in Tokyo (Day 2): Return to Sumida Park + Encounters + Reflections

The stretch of the Sumida Park that I already walked through is apparently just a glimpse of the whole park itself. On the other side is another stretch of cherry blossoms parallel to the Sumida river. I noticed that the boat that cruises along the river is more visible here compared to the other side,… Continue reading Solo in Tokyo (Day 2): Return to Sumida Park + Encounters + Reflections
