Japan 2017 (Day 1): Arrival + Asakusa’s Senso-ji + Akihabara + Marunouchi Picadilly, Ginza

Asakusa Sensoji Temple

Before the year ends, I’d like to get started on my overdue Japan posts. When I came back to the PH, I blogged the important ones and thought I shouldn’t write about my trip in detail anymore. When I browsed through my photos, however, I realized that there’s still a lot to say during my 10-day trip… so here it goes lol.

For our first day, we were kinda groggy because we got an early morning flight. Not to mention that we went straight to our destinations instead of resting at our accommodation upon arrival.

I’m starting to look for a quote to follow next year. If not, I’ll probably still follow the same. You might find it weird, but I keep myself sane when I have some sort of reminder. ww

[Review] I Ordered CDs from Japan and… it Didn’t End up Nice

CDJapan

It’s no surprise. If you (or someone you know) have ordered an item overseas, your initial worry would be the Bureau of Customs — which is btw the worst and most corrupt agency in the PH. They charge absurd taxes to the point that you’ll either not claim the package at all or waste time and effort to get an explanation of the questionable fees, but still end up paying since you badly need the item(s).

Seriously, who would want to pay taxes that are half or even higher than the price of what they bought? Nobody, right? Who in their right mind would say “yes” to that.
