This was our last day in Tokyo and we were quite fortunate because we bought the latest flight from Japan back to Malaysia.
If I’m not mistaken it was a 11pm flight and because of that we got to walk around in Tokyo until the afternoon.
We went to places that I’ve always wanted to visit and one of them was what I called the “big red lantern” hahahahTop- EMODA High waisted pants- MURUA Flats- French Sole Blazer- ZARA Bag- Chanel
Stood there in amazement of the big red lantern for around 2 minutes and still cant believe that Im actually standing in front of it. I always wanted to visit this place ever since I saw it in a magazine around 8-9 years ago!
I’m quite a sucker when it comes to souvenir stores! I wanted to buy everything for everyone but we didn’t have enough currency la sien… What do you expect? it was our last day in Japan of cox we had to spend all the yen right!
After visiting Sensoji Temple, we went to Kitanomaru park where some of our pre wedding pictures were taken. This park is filled with Sakura blossoms and I told Jo we have to go back and take more pictures!!
If you were to ask me when is the best time to visit Japan and I would say when there are sakura blossoms! It’s so worth going during spring, the weather is just nice and the place is just to die for la.
We wanted to take the 4.30pm train back to Osaka but it was full so we took the 3.45pm train instead. We had to travel back to Osaka because we left our luggage in the JR train station and we had to catch our flight back to M’sia from Osaka.
The most terrifying incident happened! While in the train back to Osaka, I suddenly remembered that the place we left our luggage at closes at 8pm!
I wasn’t very sure and there is nothing that we could’ve done so we ignored it and kept telling ourselves that they close at 10pm la!
We reached the Osaka JR station at 8.15pm and we immediately ran to the locker room and it was CLOSED!!! I was literally freaking out and I was like OMG, why they so punctual one!!
Jo and I had no idea what to do, so we went around knocking on the doors, hoping that someone inside could hear us so that we can claim our luggage.
We were really in a panic because we cant afford to stay another night in Osaka and we had to reach the airport at 9pm!!
My mind was blank and I kept telling myself die also I dont want to pay extra (hotel and fligth ticket) to stay another night in Japan!!
I swear I almost cried ok! After 10 mins of knocking on the door, we turned around a guy was standing behind us and asked if we were the couple that were supposed to claim our luggage today? We said YES!
He told us he actually came back to check because we told him that we will come back to claim our luggage after 3 days!
I was so happy that I wanted to hug him and say, Thank You! After that we were thinking how lucky we were because if we took the 4.30pm train instead, there would have been no chance of us getting our luggage back!
Seriously, I really think the Japanese are really helpful and nice, if the same thing happened in Malaysia I’m sure they will never wait for you or come back to check.
They will just say KAMU DATANG LEWAT.
