Nikko-well worth your time

A travel blog entry by johnnym on Sep 10, 2013

One of the reasons for booking an out of the way hostel was the idea of spending more time lounging than moving. In fact, I'll confess; I had no idea Nikko had so much to offer, and had assumed I'd be seeing a lot of the surroundings of Zen Hostel, and with a river, small beach, outside area (to be turned into a bar, given time and money) and …

Getting there is always the hardest part.

... and games and the alcohol (again, typically) is free, but that really only gets you so far. Like, 3 hours. Maybe 4. After that your life becomes about pressing the button on your chair to make sure your seat back was indeed reclined as far as possible (from bolt upright to undetectably less bolt upright) and obsessively watching the little airplane on your TV screen creep at a glacial pace across the flight path.

The Homestretch

A travel blog entry by helenandjohn88


... we got back to the hostel we started talking to a few people, and made plans for the next day.

We woke to rain on Saturday – a result of the typhoon which was sweeping its way across Japan. As a result, we were housebound, so John rented a Dreamcast and Helen wrote blogs all day. At 6pm the hostel was hosting an okonomiyaki party, so we met up with the people we were talking to the night before and ate some delicious okonomiyaki before heading out (thankfully ...

... flight was scheduled to leave in 1hr. There are 2 terminals at the airport and we went down the wrong one which put us father behind. The signs are really hard to understand because there arnt that many of them, and there not nearly as clear as in the states. We get to our check in at 825 and the ladies tell us that we were 10minutes late and they couldnt let us onto the plane because of our baggage and security. The blankest most lost looks could have been seen by me ...

Glamorous Ginza

A travel blog entry by anja_taferner


... you could as well refer to it as a "japanese tortilla" and that would be equally close - and equally wrong...) And to top this all, I had the most delicious dessert - some poppy seed mousse. Treated myself to a drink at one of Tokyo's luxury hotels then - cool, dimly lit bar on the 24th floor of a skyscraper with fabulous views over Tokyo. Listened in on conversations of other guests ("we need to run this initative", "you need to follow through on this action point", ...

Room was exceedingly small (~ 4 tatami mats including space under bunkbeds), with no space to store bags and about 6" clearance under the bed. There was no place to pass each other inside the room. Bathroom smelled and was apparently cleaned by someone who got a discount on their stay for it, so not much motive to do a good job.

Room was on the 2nd floor, with a run down kitchen, shower / toilet (shared between ~ 10 people). Registration was in another building. Free computer.
