    Tokyo: Shinjuku Gyoen, Halal Ramen Ouka, Daikanyama

    Shinjuku Gyoen (新宿御苑) The cherry blossoms had gotten their groove on when Ottie and I visited Shinjuku Gyoen. We were super lucky to have been there for the blooms! Shinjuku Gyoen has an entry fee of ¥200 (~SGD $2) per person. This comes with a map to explore this huge area. Everyone knew about the sakura blooms at this park, so it was quite crowded! We had to join a small queue when we arrived at 1pm, and queues to enter were even longer when we left the park at about 2.30pm.

    Tokyo: Koishikawa Korakuen

    I can’t believe it’s been three months since I last left off writing about my Tokyo trip from earlier this year! I’ve been super busy editing a bunch of photos for a small project since August (and can’t wait to write about it come December), but now that I’m finally done with that, I can now concentrate on editing my travel photos; hopefully these posts will come in more regularly – perhaps I’ll even intersperse them with my Taiwan trip from July and Bali trip from November? Who knows! I’ll have to see where my mood takes me. To recap, Ottie and I spent the first week of cherry blossom season…
