After 4 days of travelling to the north part of Japan ; Sapporo, Hokkaido. Now, the next trip brought me to the south of Japan which is Nagoya. Nagoya is located in Aichi Prefecture. (Refer to picture above), Aichi Prefecture is numbered 23 while the place i'm living is numbered  14 ; Kanagawa Prefecture. Seems near right? Well, proceed the reading and you will know how long it takes to reach there.

Travel to north of Japan : Sapporo

Assalamualaikum, good evening & こんにちは、

Map of Hokkaido

10th of September 2012 - As my 2nd trip during summer vacation, me with 5 others of my friends (that made us a total of 6 persons) went to the north island of Japan which is Hokkaido island. For an image explanation, please look at the image above.There are a lot of places to visit in Hokkaido but we only managed to visit Sapporo, Hokkaido. As it would cost us more if we want to tour around hokkaido....we can't rent a car because most car-rental company won't allow us to rent a car by only using an international license, they want a japan license for it. Since none of us have a japan license, we can't rent it. To take a tour around hokkaido using public transportation? Better don't even think about it. It would cost you soo much...

illusion at Trick Art Museum, Odaiba, Japan

Assalamualaikum & good evening, 

In these post, i just want to show some of eye-illusion picture that occured at Trick Art Museum in Odaiba. I got the opportunity to visit Odaiba since my far-away lived friend came to Kanagawa for a visit during summer holiday. As it's been our tradition to always entertain guest that come to our house, i took a day-off at my work place (the best part was i didn't inform my senior, just escaped it like that), and we went to Odaiba, Tokyo for some fun.

Climbing the highest mountain in Japan : Mt. Fuji

View of sunrise from top of Mt. Fuji

Assalamualaikum & good evening,

Mt. Fuji : the highest mountain in Japan. Also regard as one of 'Japan's Three Holy Mountains' along with Mount Tate and Mount Haku. It is a special place of scenic beauty, a historic site and has been submitted for future inscription on the World Heritage List by UNESCO.

Finished on the introduction on Mt. Fuji. I want to tell a story regarding my experience on climbing the highest mountain in Japan. Honestly, i never climbed any mountain before nor do i have any interest in mountain climbing. Back in Malaysia, the only highest 'natural place' that i've climbed before was Broga Hill. Though, it was just only a 'hill', compared to 'mountain', the hill are just nothing.

Syawal di perantauan! Part 2

Assalamualaikum, good evening & こんにちは、

After you have read the first part, which was on the first day of Syawal (1 Syawal of 1433H), in these post i want to tell about what happens to me on the next day of Syawal. Actually, celebrating Syawal in Japan is not soo much fun compared to Malaysia. The only feeling of Eid Ul-Fitr was during the 1st till 3rd day of Syawal maybe.

In the 1st chapter, i have told about me celebrating my Syawal and performing my Solat sunat Aidilfitri at Malaysia Embassy in Shibuya, Tokyo. Then, we have like a mini reunion with my ex-JAD lecturer at Shibuya. During the night. we have a little fireworks play. My lecturer invited me & some of my friends to play fireworks with his 2 little childrens so that we can have a feeling of Raya maybe. Well....we used to play fireworks back in Malaysia during Aidilfitri. So, here's a few pictures of it.
