[Amaya Travels] Nikko, Japan (Tobu World Square, Edo Wonderland)



Moving on to the last two destinations in Nikko: Tobu World Square & Edo Wonderland! I found out that you could only get the day passes at specific train stations; and it was out of the way to get them, so I bought all the tickets separately, Gives you flexibility over the schedule to get discounted tickets too! ^^

En-route to Tobu World Square!

This little globe here opens up at specific intervals for some music~

And in this place, I become a pro at aerial photography LOLOL. Everything is so tiny!





Some parts of the attractions will move if you purchase a punch card!



Some princely abode

Holland!




A Korean Palace Procession








Yuba (Tofu) Cuisine!

♡  Edo Wonderland  ♡

Edo Wonderland has discounted tickets if you enter after a certain timing, so if you are not planning on dressing up, you could spend just the afternoon there. A tour bus links Tobu World Square to Edo Wonderland (not free if you are not a pass user).


A class of well-dressed students!

Feels like a different world altogether!








Would love to come back here in the morning with my own yukata to fully appreciate the atmosphere! Edo Wonderland also provides packages if you would like to dress up as a samurai and other characters~

[Amaya Travels] Nikko, Japan (Lake Chuzenji, Kegon Falls, Futasaran Shrine)

After being back in Singapore for almost a month, I have finally started on editing photos from the trip!

First leg was in Nikko, Japan. I could not find a reasonable accommodation in Nikko itself, so I opted to stay in Kanuma, a city below Nikko. Trains arrive about once every hour to Nikko.

The place I stayed at is Sannoan Cafe, which also provides free breakfast, and wonderful meals at other times of the day. Yukino and Shino were very kind hosts who provided lots of helpful information~!



I could eat this everyday xD

Took the train to Tobu Nikko, and waited for the bus up to Lake Chuzenji!
Train decor in Tobu Nikko station~!

I had a friend who was at Lake Chuzenji two weeks prior, and he said it was really cold, so I had worn a number of layers. Turns out it was a really hot day when I went ;_; On the bright side, clear sunny skies meant pretty photos!






Of course, the autumn colours that are not to be missed!

Lake Chuzenji!

DIY-ed a leaf rose, success!
Some girls having their own photoshoot heehee


Found this shrine tucked in a corner

Short stopover to have lunch~! Three types of tuna in one don!
