Japan trip!

We arrived late last night and chose to spend our first night at the Nikko Kansai Airport Hotel just so we wouldn't have to brave the train at 11pm. I think it was a great decision.

The room is small and cosy but perfect for just the one night quick stay at an airport hotel.  The bed was comfortable and they provided us with so many bathroom amenities that I'm not quite used to this.

Japanese toilets with all the little extra buttons are already starting to amuse me and I've only just started my trip. I know this trip is only going to get better.

I woke up this morning and had a look out the window to notice that across the road at the hotel is a pet hotel. How adorable is the design!?

The weather is warm and humid though. Reminds me of Malaysia.  :)

Today we are going to travel to our first proper hotel and then explore. Although the other half is currently still asleep. I feel asleep quite a bit earlier than him last night though. After the 12 hours of flying all I could do was shower, crawl into bed and sleep.

The boy somehow managed to organise some things in our luggage, boil water for our traveling today and put all our phones and such onto charge.


  1. Oh awesome to hear that you have had such a nice start to your trip :D Dan and I have booked in for the airport hotel for the same reason so its good to know we have made the right decision :) Have fun and stay safe <3 Ali x

  2. Yay! Already so much fun. I definitely think it's only up from here!! <3

  3. Ahhhh I'm not sure if my last comment went through! If it didn't, the gist of it was:

    1. Omg you're in Japan much excite!
    2. How cool are the toilets? Right? RIGHT?!
    3. Your excitement reminds me so much of my own. If you feel like it, you can check out my blog entries from my Japan trip too! http://xinsweald.wordpress.com/2014/02/07/hello-from-japan/
