On the 3rd day , i go to kyoto using Shinkansen, wonder what they looks like lol. But When i finally see it, well.. it’s not as cool as i thought…
It it definitely fast, it can travel from town-to town only 20 minutes… and now let me tell you what happen…
It is raining that day. i like oh shit, forget the umbrella , it’s inside suitcase and hard to reach, but the Hotel’s manager lend me one of her umbrella and thanks her so here we go to train station.
We go using shinkasen with Japan Rail Pass [it’s an unlimited train ticket, u can entrain as many train as u want and it’s free… as i pay!!! unlimited train work!!!! watever]
the oroginal plan is to take shinkasen from tokyo to kyoto, but somehow we take a wrong train >_< there are 3 shinkansesn, nozomi, hikari, and i forget the other one >_<
Somehow we entrain on the Nozomi train which is not included in japan rail pass [we have to pay] so the train officer told us to change train at the next station
So, when it’s stop at the next station [Shinagawa] we stop and to change train. Somehow i take the wrong umbrella and i have to find te inn owner’s umbrella and it’s take a time around 30 second. And when i’m gonna get out f the train , the door closed. I like oh shit, and my friends already outside so we separated.
So , this is where the confusion begin, the 2st thing 1 thought is i have to stop at the next station. Then i stopped at the nex Station Shin Yokohama, then decided to go back to Shinagawa they might be wait me there .
The good [for me bad] thing about shinkansen is, the train from the 2 sides always arrive on the same time, so u’ll never be able to see the other side, so i don’t know if they were get out of the train when i go inside another train at the other side.
I arrived at shinagawa and then search them in the station, but i found noone, still wait might be they realize i was waiting at shinagawa since i wasn’t at shin yokohama station. Wait for half an hour… nope no result
and then i decide to shin yokohama, they might be wait me there. Go there and searching and still no resul. Desperate i ask the police for some help, and yes he can’t speak english >_< . I planned to call home 😦 and you can’t do international call without telephone card., i like oh shit.
So i depended my life to the police and tell him the story hope they understand >_<well finally he bring someone who able to speak english even thought it’s only a little :(. So i asked them if they can find any info about my friend , i’m hoping they can track people with japan rail pass >_< [well definitely not]
so i wait for around 3 hours at shin yokohama station, and the told me to get back to tokyo >_< they even told me how , wew thanks god.
After i get how to get to tokyo, i decided to go to kyoto >_< wai? Well i buy this japal rail pass to get to kyoto,it will be useless if i didn’t use it? and my friend might be there waiting for me?
so i go back to shinagawa first >_< the police officer is making sure i take a right train, definitely a good police officer >_< sorry i tricked you
from shinagawa i entrain the Hikari train[got the right train this time :p] .And when i thought Kyoto is near? Well , it’s far enough, i thought it ‘s only take 1 hours, the truth is 3 hours.
iI saw from my window, i across the mountain, sea, town, village, factory and others. Well it’s alrady dark 😦 and cannot sleep , i dont want to miss kyoto station. I f i missed i might doomed coz this maybe the last train >_<
Finnally arrived at koyoto Station… it’s already dark 7o’clock i rushed through the station, still not find them there :(. So i decided to get out from the station and find some inn. The 1st thing i have to do is fin an inn that has internet to contact them through the internet and tell them i’m okay don’t worry about them.
Well when i’m inside the kyoto station, i kinda amazed. This is not a train station , it’s a mall !? the train station is under or inside the mall. It’s even have a hotel inside.
I finally got outside and found some tourist guide map, kyoto have a lot of temple that’s what i think at first. Than i look for hotel, i don’t want to spent night at big and expensive hotel, so i pick the most faraway and small hotel, i walk with my suitcase, well i’s not heavy just noisy.
Finnally got there, but i didn’t find the hotel? oh well but i found another hotel which is full. Well, at least i found the temple and i decided to go there tomorrow >_<. Desperately, i decided to go back to station and go to the expensive and big hotel.. i like wew… and then i found this hotel Kyoto West Station Hotel.
1st , i asked the price , it was 6000 yen without breakfast 😦 It’s so expensive , homeikan is 5775 with breakfast 😦 then i go out, and it’s started raining -_- oh well i quess i have tm stay here. it’s a bad idea to walk around the city in the night with suitcase when it’s raining.
i payed and go to my room, leave some suitcase and decided to go to McDonal coz i’m hungry 😀 wished to get a fish burger for 100 yen [it’s a promo] but unlike the tokyo mc donald that near my inn before, it not 24 hour 😦
oh well, i go to the convenient Store, or people here called them Combi. Find a sandwhich and yakisoba pan i quess?get I go back to hotel and eat them? okay the sandwich is okay but he yakisoba pan taste strangely >_< take a bath and sleep
Since the room is for 2 people there is a lot of futon inside, so i take out all the futon and my a nice and big bed >_<yayyyy
[all of those were thumbnail >_<]
The temple has a nice structure,ornament and also nice smell. I’m pretty ammazed . Somehow i able to infiltrate the temple , there is one forbidden place that you can’t enter except u’re a me,ber of ceremony or wateva
that i found out that my friend is in tokyo and decided to go back 😀
take a few pic on the train [sorry for a strange report, i’m afraid i can’t finish this report if i don’t do it in quick way]
finally i meet my friend there >_<
and hebought me nendro yoshika 😀 i want her 😛
and we do smth stupid
