After months of planning, we finally embark on our 2014 Japan Trip. This is the first time my mum n bro set foot on Japan soil. Considering both aren’t avid travellers, I have been warned to go on a slower pace n a less tiring itinerary instead my usual fast paced, see, do n eat as much as possible trip.
Here is a summary of the places we had covered during this trip with links to the little things we did on each day:
25 May 2014 – Day 3: Local Day Tour 1: Kyoto and Nara Day Trip by Japanican (pending update)
26 May 2014 – Day 4: Kyoto to Osaka (pending update)
27 May 2014 – Day 5: Shiga Ryuo Mitsui Outlet Mall (pending update)
28 May 2014 – Day 6: Local Day Tour 2: Early Summer Mystery Tour by Yokoso Japan (pending update)
29 May 2014 – Day 7: The Momofuku Ando Instant Ramen Museum (pending update)
30 May 2014 – Day 8: Kobe-Sando Outlet Mall (pending update)
31 May 2014 – Day 9: Osaka City Tour using Amazing Osaka 1 Day Pass (pending update)
1 Jun 2014 – Day 10: Osaka Kansai Airport to Singapore Changi Airport (transit at Kuala Lumpur) (pending update)
Overall, this was an awesome trip. I hope to go back Japan soon.
Some 5 yrs back during my first Kyoto Trip, i happened to chance upon this awesome gold flakes matcha from one of the stall at the Golden Pavilion Temple.
So during my recent trip I lugged back 5 pcks of these for my friends n I (if only I have more luggage space).
These matcha are in powder form and cost 1080 yen (abt Sgd $13.50) per pk.
Its easy to brew using either hot, warm or cold water. The tea is kind of sweeter than normal but it is perfect for me.
I tried brewing using hot water n it taste awesome.
I also made matcha latte with some Meiji milk. It kind of dilute the sweetness quite abit
whichever why …I am so glad I can enjoy my lovely mini Japan Hours in my little Singapore home.
