Konichiwa! Xplore the heart of JAPAN

September 2014. Xplore Japan. Dalam group besar dari biasa. 8 orang. Bile dalam group byk faktor kena fikir. Yang penting kerjasama dan respect each other.

TOKYO > YAMAGATA > MT FUJI > OSAKA > KYOTO > TOKYO > NAGOYA

Aha! Within 7 days xplore..xplore..and xplore. And of course beberapa tempat saje yg dapat pergi. Kalau nak explore Tokyo sahaja mmg boleh. Tapi better la kalau dpt cover daerah nearby juga.

Flight AA ada promo save on flight cost.

2 minggu sebelum fly
  • compile semua info and prepare itinerary yang details. Slalu travel main redah je. Ada itinerary tp tidak lah se-details ni. Phewww
  • Beli Japan Rail Pass. If travel 7/14/21 hari di Japan it is suggested to buy JR Pass lebih jimat with unlimited use of JR transportation services (Monorail/Shinkanzen/Bus/Ferry). Go to www.japanrailpass.net for more details and to buy online. Or else walk in di JTB Malaysia or visit https://www.jtbmalaysia.com JR Pass cost 29,110Y = 278 USD. Masa beli rate of exchange adalah 100Y = 0.73
  • Booking accommodation.  Tokyo Euno Youth Hostel, Osaka Vitti Lodge dan Kyoto Utano Youth Hostel
~Day 1~

Flight 14:30 dan sampai di Haneda Airport pada 22:30. Semua public transport dah tkde. Bermalam di airport floor. Ramai yg stay sini sementara tunggu esk pagi. Haneda airport ada prayer’s room. Baby’s room untuk dapatkan air panas. Malam ni tido sini. 5am baru train beroperasi.


~Day 2~

First thing pagi ni pegi ke JR Pass exchange office untuk valid JR Pass. Di Haneda Airport ada office tapi start operate 7:45. Kami decide ke Tokyo Station as early as we can. Kena catch early train ke Yamagata. Kena faham cara guna JR Pass, schedule and route. Everything about monorail and shinkanzen. Pening!

Kaget depan ticket machine. Minta bantuan ticketing officer. Very helpful. So now kami dah tahu guna ticket machine. Masukkan note paling besar pun, mesin akan bagi baki. Tiket size kecil hati2 pegang.


~How to access to Tokyo from Haneda Airport~

Monorail from Haneda (650Y) > Hamamatsucho St (Change train use JR Line Yamahota Line) > Tokyo St. (490Y)




Sampai je Tokyo St ramai orang dah mula ke tempat kerja. Cari JR office. Still early. Office belum buka. Lepak2 depan station tengok gelagat local people. Local people masih suka membaca. Susah sekarang nak tengok orang pegang buku.





JR office now open. Ada information counter, so kami amik kesempatan dapatkan info for Yamagata and hiking Mt Fuji. Officer boleh communicate in English. Conclusion yang kami dapat for Mt Fuji ‘I suggest you come again next season’ ??? . Suggestion apakah ini suruh dtg next season. 

Banyak brochure bole dpt di sini.  Selesai urusan JR Pass move to counter ticket booking seat for shinkansen and drop luggage using coin locker. Harga setiap unit depend pd size. Small 300Y/ Medium 500Y/ Large 700Y. Amik large sharing basis jimat cost. Jgn lupa lokasi locker.

Heading off to Yamagata. Good luck!
