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…
Being able to live in Japan for 2 weeks was like a dream come true to me. Well, not really a dream actually since I’ve never dreaming about going to Japan. It’s more like an… unexpected gift. I’ve never imagined myself to go to Japan since it’s known for the high prices. You know, the high living cost, the high food price, and the lists go on and on.
But then, I was lucky enough to be one of the participants of AIMS Short Stay Program 2014 in TUAT (Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology / Nokodai) Japan. Domo arigato gozaimasu for the chance!
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.
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!”
