It was 2017 when I first came to beautiful Kyoto. A year later, I was back. Unlike the first time when it rained the whole time, the sun was shining bright during this late summer day. The journey begins from Osaka Station. I spent that morning at Osaka Castle and now was headed to another… Continue Reading →
On the next day of Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year) break, I visited an old part of Incheon. I’m used to visiting new and futuristic-looking areas of the city so it’s crazy stumbling across old neighborhoods like these. It was my first time getting off this station so I wasn’t sure what to expect…. Continue Reading →
Happy Lunar New Year (commonly known as Chinese New Year)! This was the first holiday in awhile I didn’t take a trip. A month ago, there were many COVID cases, and it was a freezing so I didn’t bother planning anything. Now, Corona cases have dropped, and the weather has been better; but I’m stuck… Continue Reading →
Walking down the streets of Nagoya, I can’t help but feel mesmerized by all the buildings around me, especially by the temples and shrines which are everywhere around Japan. Each makes me want to stop and take a picture or say a prayer (though I’m not Buddhist). What better way to begin the walk than… Continue Reading →
Just arriving in Daegu City, I jumped in a taxi and headed to Mangwoo Park! Why there? Because of this picture: I just saw it on the internet and knew I had to see this place for myself. From Dongdaegu Station, it’s like a 10-minute taxi ride. You could walk it if you’re up for… Continue Reading →
First time staying at a hanok (traditional Korean house). It’s literally the smallest room I’ve ever stayed in! I chose it for the novelty. The manager was super friendly and didn’t bother checking my reservation or asking my name. The old man just spotted me walking down the street and said, “Hey, you have a… Continue Reading →
Freshly arrived in Nagoya, the first place I wanted to go was the busiest and liveliest place there was. Osu Shopping District it was! This place is 40 minutes from the airport. Right away, I was greeted by the largest maneki-neko I’ve ever seen: The “arcade” (as they call these roofed, outdoor shopping areas in… Continue Reading →
I will go over the best way to get from Nagoya Airport (Chubu Centrair) to the city center using the uSky Express Train. Btw, this trip almost didn’t happen! Originally, Nagoya was supposed to be my last stop in Japan. But I ended up in Shikoku instead and after, thought I was returning to Korea… Continue Reading →
This year was the worst, but I tried to make the best out of it. =) Here is a brief review of every city I traveled to in 2020! With every destination, I’ll explain three things: What the picture is of. Why I went to that city. What surprised me about it. Let’s begin in… Continue Reading →
Tokyo, Seoul, San Francisco, Shanghai: famous cities with famous airports. I’ve been to them all. And then we have Takamatsu Airport: a tiny airport located in the middle of nowhere! Arrival I was just in San Francisco, then China, then South Korea, and now back in Japan again. It had been a crazy last couple… Continue Reading →
