photo credits: Airbnb.com

The apartment was advertised in airbnb.com. 

Check it here:  https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/5980594?s=SeLQ

We stayed near shinosaka station, thanks to Ana for letting us use her small but very cozy apartment, complete with kitchen and own lavatory. The room can accommodate 2-4 persons. Has ac and futon. Very convenient if you want to go to kyoto, osaka, kobe or nara very near in subway.  


For only Php2294 per night (no charge for extra person). This apartment can save your budget lalo na if you are in a group. We're only 2 when we stayed there for 7 nights plus Ana gave a good discount. ^_^

How to Apply and Get a Japanese Tourist Visa in the Philippines

I know all of us batang 90's, our dream country was to go to Japan because we love anime and read manga in our childhood. I remember way back elementary days after school weekdays, 3pm blink na sa channel 2 at pag 7-8pm ghost fighter na sa channel 7 nakikipag agawan pa kami ng TV kay lola dahil gusto nya manood ng news :)) at pag saturday Samurai X Kenshin my loves naman chanel 23 at yaiba sa chanel 5. Sa dami ata ng Anime na napanood ko at nabasang manga certified otaku na ako. 

Last Aug 8-15, 2015,  I live my dreams to reality to visit my dream country. Kala ko di ko mapupuntahan eh. Ang saya lang nung na accomplished mo before 30. :P
