a day in Yokohama.

What's a Japan trip without a visit to the most romantic city in Japan?

I wanted to bring Mum to Yokohama since a long time ago and was considering between the city and Mount Fuji (which has the most spectacular nature scene! See amazing photos here) cause going to Tokyo, Mount Fuji and Yokohama all at once is exhausting - you'd have to opt for buses too, instead of trains. And I knew that would be exhausting for Mum too, unless we hire a taxi or driver to take us there.


So opted for Yokohama instead. I shall see you next time, Mount Fuji. Sobs.

Bribed Mum with all the Ferris wheel, theme park and "amazing-scene-by-the-sea-you-won't-wanna-miss-it" stuff. She loves happening place with crowd, it's a given she'd love Tokyo.

And turns out she loves Yokohama too!

 Queen's Mall at Minato Mirai.

Went on Landmark Tower for the second time.

 View from the top!

 Lol takde keje. But I'd like a pair of Onitsuka Tiger someday too, once I could embrace the sneakers side of me.

 The shirt I bought him.

 Hard Rock Cafe Yokohama!

 Had lunch at a Japanese restaurant all the way on 7th floor. Overseeing the Cosmo World so we could see the park and Ferris wheel!

Last pose at Minato Mirai.

Spent a few hours there and by evening we were walking too much I gave in - went back to the hotel to get some rest. I don't know how I survive wearing heels there, but got through 5 days without flats!

By 5, we went out again to Harajuku. Wanted to take pictures of Mum with some Japanese chick dressed as Sailormoon or Hello Kitty-inspired but no one was hyped enough to dress that crazy that day pfft.


 Crazy cool car.

 Harajuku street.

 In the middle of Harajuku, thinking whether I should get that chocolate strawberry crepe when he took this.

Hopped on the train and went to Tokyo Station to take a look at the new outerior design they've completed - but went to different entrance -____-" Next time, if you want to visit Tokyo Station look for Marunouchi entrance/exit. We walked all the way to the opposite side only to find this pfft.


Got all grumpy so I needed my comfort food. Which means Saizeriya.

 Good salad, variety of drinks, seafood. Bliss. Had these the last time!


After days of having washoku, I could use a western-ish meal. Saizeriya is the best restaurant for that other than Joyful, so if you're craving for some pizza and fries amongst the sashimi and sushi, look for these restaurants. Good price too!
