Food Top 3 – 1st. The breakfast.

As promised I’ll share with you every possibile detail about my ryokan stay. This one here was the breakfast we had the first morning (the second one, since there was a train travel ahead, we decided to skip).  Since I’ve moved to Ireland, I got used to a different breakfast, the savory one. Until I…

Food Top 3 – 1st. The first dinner.

While in Hakone, I ate the best food I’d had during this trip in Japan.  I warned you in my last post, the following ones will concentrate on details, as I loved our inn and the stay there immensely.  The collage represent the dinner that was brought to us the first night.  This ryokan, as…

Hakone!

  After another half day of travel we reached Hakone.  We put Hakone as relaxing spot in between Kyoto and Tokyo. We were sure we would get tired with so much walking, hence, as good otaku as we are, we decided to go and relax at the hot springs, like any normal anime character would…

Direction: Hakone!

  Best way to get better faster is to linger in nice memories, so why not keep going with the tale of my travel! If I keep being so slow, by the time I finish, I’ll have to start the new one! Well,  next travel isn’t planned yet, no worries, but we want to return…

Sick again…

  It’s not like I cannot shake it off…it keeps coming back.  It seems I’m not able to get better for a longer period lately.  When it seems gone, it comes back nastier and heavier.  But I’ll fight! 

Happy 2nd grade!

  Before I keep going on with my travel tale about Japan, there are a few posts I want to write.  First of all, even if it’s a bit in late, I want to wish happy 2nd grade to my daughter.  She’s growing so fast I cannot keep pace sometimes. I’m in constant amazement of…

Not giving up is the key!

  I like this view from the Fushinmi Inari Taisha.  It’s not from the top, it’s just from the highest point I’ve reached, as you know already.  Why do I publish it again? Because I want to write a note to myself.  I always do my best. Although I struggle and I fail almost all…

She’s back!

The boss is back! I’ll just leave this here, and will play with her! Sorry for this quick post, I’ll see you next week!     

On the Shinkansen again!

  For the first part of our trip we moved with the Shinkansen, also translated as bullet train.  This time the experience was nicer, as Maya was finally fine and I could enjoy the trip like any other curious tourist.  Before getting on the Shinkansen we had to get food. You can actually find food…

Thank you Kyoto!

The day we left Kyoto was warm and sunny.  I’ve loved Kyoto, it was like a deep dive in the past. The kindness of people was overwhelming. I felt welcomed and at home.  Deeply moved I packed my luggages and went for the station. Direction Hakone.  Maybe if I didn’t have this curiosity to see…
