Photo Essay : JAPAN

In early March last year, when the winter has faded out but yet spring hasn’t show its face, I spent several weeks living in Japan. It was my first time stepping my own feet in the country and no doubt, I was beyond excited given the fact that I could experience a new culture in another part of the world.

I did observe things during my stay. I watched how people interact with each other, how they behave, how they do things.

This post is not going to be a travel guide or a food review. It’s more like a photo essay, when I put my photos from Japan here with a short description for each one. Just simply because…

I want you… to see what I saw.

One Day in Tokyo

Last month, I got a surprising news from my university. Guess what? I got accepted as an exchange student in TUAT Japan for 2 weeks together with another 3 students from my university (Hilfi Amri, Irfan Nurhadi, and Muhammad Alifa Farhan).

Short story, we had a free time last Sunday. And since Amri decided to go out with the other friends, Irfan, Alif, and I went out on our own. We went to Harajuku, Shibuya, Asakusa, and Akihabara in one day.

My First Postcard!

I’ve just received my very first postcard about 2 days ago. A lovely friend of mine sent this from Tokyo, Japan. It takes about 2 weeks to reach Indonesia. That’s pretty fast, don’t you think? I mean, I sent the same thing 2 days earlier before she sent this one. But there’s no sign of my postcard arriving in Japan. So… I guess mine got lost along its way so it won’t even reach Japan before my friend go back to Indonesia. I think I better send another one. Lanjutkan membaca My First Postcard!

Borobudur Temple, Yogyakarta

It was not until the last 2 years that I finally stepped on one of the greatest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia. Yes, I went to Yogyakarta (or simply Yogya), which is one of the foremost cultural centers of Java, last 2 years with some friends. And for me, visiting Yogya would not be complete without going to the Borobudur temple. This temple is a main tourist attraction in Java Island, and it’s even listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
