My 24th birthday in Japan

I was not expecting nothing from my birthday, I just thought it to be a normal day but that did not happen.

In the morning of my birthday my girlfriend was telling me that she wants to go to the Hirosaki center to do some shopping and she was insisting that I bring my camera, I had no idea why but I brought it with me.

When we arrived to Hirosaki we went around the shops a bit and ate in Mcdonnalds because I was a bit hungry and Hirosaki center does not have that huge restaurant selection. After we finished eating my girlfriend was watching the time and saying we have to go to the mall at the JR station to see something and I was not suspicious at all what would happen next.

When we arrived to the station we took the train to Aomori city but she told me in the begin that she wants to visit a some place near hirosaki in a train so I had no idea we were going to Aomori city until we arrived there.

Hirosaki to Aomori city is about 50 minutes in the train.

When we arrived to Aomori city we made a quick visit to the Aomori city fish market but we left from there in a hurry too because this was just a pit stop on her plan. We went back to the station and jumped to another local train to a small town called Asamushi that is about 30 minutes from Aomori city and I still had no idea what was going on.

When we arrived to Asamushi and we walked to place she was taking I knew what was going on. She reserved a room for a us in a beautiful old Japanese ryokan that had like 6 different Onsen (Japanese hot spring) and a traditional tatami room of course.

Surprises did not end here…

I was in shock of course and since I did not have anything else on me then my camera bag and wallet. I tolled her that and she took a plastic bag and in there was everything I needed, she packed things for me in secret the previous night.

One problem that I had was that my nikon battery was almost out and my Sony also was pretty much empty but some how I managed those two days and took amazing photos. Since everything was such a surprise I had no idea to recharge my camera batteries.

ps. now that I’m writing this it’s 6 in the morning and my girls’ cat called chibi just came to sit next to me and do that sound that cats do. She is so cute !

After we got settled to our room we went on a walk around the area to see if we could find a combine like family mart or something to get some snacks but in that town there was only and it was pretty far away but it did had this small store in which we could get beers and such.

When we arrived back to the ryokan it was almost the time for the dinner which was breathtaking! I could say that it was the most delicious meat I have ever eaten in my life… Famous Japanese steak which is not cheap and uffff it is soooo goooood.

Dinner ended and she gave me my other present which was a Zippo with a very cool dragon (only in Japan), I love dragons and my horoscope is a dragon.

We noticed that it was almost 8pm and her reservation to our private onsen was almost about, I quickly put on my Yukata and we went to have a private relaxing onsen.

I do LOVE onsen, it is my favorite place in this planet.
Going back to our room our beds have been made and everything else cleaned. ( I love the service in Japan)

And after 20 minutes of the first onsen we went to the next one that was an outside onsen facing the beach. Outside onsen is great because it was a bit cold so when you went in side the onsen you felt like you were in heaven!

The Private onsen was 500 yen for 50 minutes and all other onsen were free of course including the outside one that you could go in and lock the door so technically it was a private onsen but free 😀

……………………………
……………………………

Morning went well with a traditional Japanese breakfast, a beautiful walk in the beach and visit to the Asamushi aquarium.

That was the story of my 24th birthday and how amazing my girl is planning things !

but enough talk ! it’s time for photos am I right !!! 😀 Let’s start with the morning of my birthday.

Mcdonnalds in Japan is pretty much the same as any mcdonnalds in the world, as for price wise to me Mcdonnalds is cheap here but many people I have met from the states tolled me that mcdonnalds is very expensive.

We stayed 40 minutes in Aomori, mostly just near the station since it was my girls plan to just change trains there.

the Next train we took from Aomori to Asamushi was like every other normal train in Japan.

Soon as I step out from the train station in Asamushi I noticed that there was this very nice free foot onsen like 10 meters from the gate. 浅虫の足湯 JR駅
-100yen for a small towel if you needed one
浅虫の足湯 JR駅 Foot onsen

This was our Ryokan for the time we stayed there. It was normal traditional Japanese place, the way I like it!
Out side that place was a free foot onsen as well. Onsen town.

After check-in one of the staff members takes you to your room and brings tea.

She was intorducing us to all the onsen they had in the building and we talked about what time we want to have dinner and when should they make our beds and so on.
This is the list of the onsen they had in the building.
From up to down
– Wooden outside onsen on the top floor. It was free with a beautiful view of the Asamushi harbor and you could lock the door if you wanted some privacy and there was no time limit.
– Private inside onsen you could reserve for 525 yen 50minutes. We actually did book this as well and I took couple of photos for you to see.
– Private inside onsen you could reserve for 525 yen 50minutes
– This one is not an onsen per say but it is like a very hot stone floor where you lay down to and relax.
– The last one is the foot onsen on the side of the building which is free of course.
+ the place of course had the men and female separated free onsens as well.

Our nice traditional Japanese tatami room.

There was no Combini (like family mart,sunkus or 7/11) in Asamushi center, the only thing they had was this small Mall thingy but we did get everything we needed.

But then I noticed that I had a fork & knive next to my chopsticks which is not normal so I thought hmm ok must be because I am a foreigner so they put them there just in case I would not know how to use chopsticks.
After a little wait it came !!

三社祭の食物 Food of Sanja Matsuri

This is the second part of the Sanja Matsuri. I wanted to make a whole post about food because one post that would have everything would be too big.

I will apologize because I’m 100% sure that after you have seen these photos you will be dying of hunger.

I’m not sure about the names of some of these foods but food is food names doesn’t matter 😀
I’ll try to add the names later with some Japanese help hehe.

Day to Day 二 Japan

I have just arrived back to Tokyo from Aomori last night, it was a long bus trip but very interesting!

In Aomori I started eating cornflakes a lot but the problem with the boxes here are that they are very “small” I can finish one box of cornflakes in two mornings (breakfast).

Since I am little bit lactose intolerant it’s hard to find good milk for me but this milk seems to go well with me.

I’m sure you all know the cute cat Chibi!
This is an activity she invented called “Gaijin climbing”
Every night soon as I had fallen a sleep she came on top my chest, stomach or back and just sat there or fell a sleep and made that cute voice cats do.

SHopping day ! Do you think I bought too much snacks ?

Since I know all of you love Chibi here are couple more photos of her trying to find that best tasting grass.

Japanese radio station in Aomori. To be honest the main reason for me to take this photo was the super high tech computer you see on the table.

Visited a nice Japanese park in Aomori where you could also be able to see a big dam.

I decided since there are couple of million photos I took at the Sanja matsuri festival that I will share with you what happened today first the grand opening of the newest addition to the Tokyo sky line called Tokyo Sky Tree.

I have had some wifi problems the past few days as well but I try to keep things moving !

So this morning I went to the Sky tree opening and it was not a suprise that it was full of people. I was in line for about 30 minutes until I got in side (it may not sound much but it has been raining a lot all day).

I love that place, It is officially my favorite mall in Tokyo! All the great stores and everything! I love it ! I took couple of hundred photos with my pocket cam for you. I didn’t want to bring my big camera because it is raining.

You could barely see the sky tree from ground level so I was imaging the people who had the ticket to go up today, they must not have been able to see anything else expect clouds up there.

Standing at the line 😀

People were already queuing in front of their favorite stores when I arrived.

Cat cafe Calico, Shinjuku 猫カフェ 新宿

It seems that always when I go to my favorite cat cafe in Tokyo, I keep going to eat in the same restaurant called Shakeys pizza ( if you been reading my blog before you know it).

This time was no different, before we went to the cat cafe we took a quick stop at the restaurant to some delicious salad that they have and of course the best onion rings and few slices of pizza.

-Best cat cafe in Tokyo (in my honest oppinion)
-not too expensive 1000yen an hour
-you get a free ticket always when you leave and with it you can get a free drink when you come back.

I took some great shots of the cats again there 😀 I know all you cat lovers will like them a lot !

The first ones are my favorite 😀

Here are couple of photos of the cat downstairs and up.

Shopping day in Akihabara

Few days before I left Japan to come to Finland I was busy with work and shopping. Yodobashi Akiba is my main place to buy electronics and camera equipment in Tokyo since the points you get to your yodobashi point card are awesome and of course that place is cheapish.
Akihabara shopping

This day we went there and I bought two new webcams I got the Logitech C910 (photo) and I got one cheaper one for my girl as well. Long distance relationship is hard but these days the technology has made it much easier.

Also I did buy other things like portable battery that works with ipad2,iphone4 etc so I’m never without power and got some memory card boxes and so on.

In the morning we had meals in Lotteria, I don’t often eat there so I wanted to try their morning set out. I do love their cheap shakes tho!

The hunt of a new wallet !

The goal we had this day was to find a wallet I saw back in November in a store in shibuya.

Saw a “onsen” in Ginza.. well a Foot onsen ? heh I was thinking getting naked and jumping in but didn’t 😀
Onsen in GinzaOnsen in Ginza
We visited that store I visited in November and they did not have it so they suggested us to go to Tokyu hands to see if they do since they had more from the brand (Porter) and of course they did not have it either, they did help us a lot by calling Porter and asking about it but they did not know either where we could get it.

We went from store to store to see and non of them had it but then we suddenly saw the one I wanted in a small shop in shibuya but the problem was that it was a white version of it but we did find out the name for it. The lady who worked there said that that wallet was now very popular and it is sold out in most of Tokyo (I got good taste huh). At that point I gave up and said that I’ll find another wallet but my girl did not give up and we went to I0I0 in Shibuya and dadaaa they had one left and I got it !

This is my old wallet that I bought from Madrid back in the days when I was living there, many years old now.

This is the new and shiny Porter that I have now.

At this point we were both starving so we went to a cheap and delicious restaurant near our home in Gyotoku.
The thing I like about this place is that it is so cheap, fills you up and tasty ! Like these sets were under 800yen each.
