The Japan Rumble: Day 5


It’s my second last day in Japan, and the last day we all hang out together before we part ways. We took one last drive into the country side and explored other areas before we had our final lunch together and head our own directions.

Nice emerald lake Big fishes! Emerald lake Us

Everything at the market is huge too! Inside one of the morning markets Dried grasshoppers, anyone? Stuart, Frank and James

Spending the Last Night in Tokyo

Frank Bauer and I were the last men standing after we bid farewell to the rest of the gang back in Fukushima. James Brown and Stuart S. belong there. Fidens had to part ways somewhere in Tokyo and James Allen was generous enough to take time off and helped me secure a room at the Shinagawa Hotel and made arrangements with the Shuttle Bus to the Narita airport for me. (thanks a bunch, JA!) πŸ™‚

Soon with JA heading back to the rice fields, Frank and I walked around Central Tokyo, taking pictures and yes we can proudly say “we’ve been here before!” πŸ™‚

Shinagawa Hotel

Frank was the last person in the gang I see and from the last night on, I was already on my own – all the way until the next day (Day 6) when I would board the MAS to fly back to Malaysia.

I think I got myself a good deal here – Shinagawa Hotel is reputedly to be a top-tier hotel, one of the top 10 in Tokyo. WOW! πŸ™‚

No wonder it was pricey though – 16,000 yen a night (around USD160 a night)!

To be continued… the next post will be the final account on the Japan trip! πŸ™‚

  1. Hey Edmund,

    Was great to meet you and hang out with you and the other guys. Cool posts on your blog here too. Hope you enjoyed the places. Come back anytime!


  2. Guys, I got back to M’sia safe and sound. Will add more stuff to this post soon. πŸ˜‰ I’m seriously considering Round 2 – I believe Japan holds more in store. πŸ™‚

    FYI Stuart S. was kind to rent an SUV for the 2 day trip and show us around the Fukushima country side.

    And James Allen – he is very selfless, never hesitate to help out (like how he helped me secure a hotel room and shuttle bus on my 2nd last day here) – women won’t find many gentlemen like him. πŸ˜‰

  3. Yeah Edmund you need to hurry back here and see lots more of this great country!

    It was a totally great time partying with the boys here and taking in some of the sweet local sights & activities πŸ™‚

  4. Yeah thanks for inviting me in the first place. My mom had forgotten to tell you this when you called over that day, but she also said thanks for taking care of me. πŸ˜‰

    I definitely have plans of visiting Japan again. Yeah, some of the things I mentioned about my 6 day trip in Japan are a bit ‘off’ fact-wise but I’m certain I’ll learn more about the culture and place there again. πŸ™‚
