My First Trip to Japan! #3: Cityhopping with a JR pass

As you know, we left Okinawa to go to Fukuoka.
Bye, beautiful blue sea! I'll miss Okinawa and I'll definitely have to go back there some day!
On our way to Kyūshu, the southernmost of Japan's four main islands, we had a beautiful view.

My First Trip to Japan! #2 Okinawa Adventures and Off to New Places!

Being the smart person I am I didn't test the adapters I had. I took my laptop hoping I'd be able to make blog entries with the pictures from my camera but well... nope.

We had three full days in Okinawa, Naha.
A Convenience Store just around the corner supplied us with most of our food. Jetlag lasted for a day and a half, but we took walks around the city and relaxed with small picnics. After all, we really needed a break from all of the excitement! Actually being in Japan was so weird.

My first trip to Japan! #1: A long, long way.

Our flight left in the evening. After finding our seats we realized: It's going to take almost eleven hours just until Tokyo. Woah.
It's hard to believe this is actually happening.
We had dinner, watched a movie, tried to sleep at least a bit (impossible for me)...

And then the sky lit up in the east as we got closer to our destination.
In short: We are exhausted, but we arrived safely. And delicious food is everywhere.

Planning my first trip to JAPAN!

In just two weeks I'll be going on my first trip to Japan - I can hardly believe it.
I've been dreaming of going there for about 15 years and now that I could finally save up and practise my Japanese I'm starting to get nervous. After all, it's a super long trip for someone who usually takes only one week off for a short visit of London.

Everything has been planned out. I love planning. I even make plans when I'm somewhere for just one day, even if I've been to the city several times before (...London, anyone?)!

A couple of things I collected while planning...

So although it might not work for you because you love being spontaneous, I'm going to start my favourite YouTube Vlogs, stare at the screen dreaming for days on end, cover my bed and desk and floors in pamphlets and magazines and get my excel and note book ready because...

Here's how a control freak like me makes TRAVEL PLANS!
