FEBRUARY 15, 2016 – 7PM
After 4 hours ride from Nagoya, I finally arrived at Tokyo. I am nervous, I don’t know where I’m going. One of the mistake on this trip, I did not save the location where I am going to. I forgot to save my Hostel on Tokyo. I don’t have internet connection. My life saver now depends on the printed Itineraries I made. Thankfully the address was there. The Hostel was at Akihabara Station, somewhere around there . It was really a struggle to know where I am, which directions should I take plus, the language barrier, when I ask someone Japanese. Absolute struggle. Thankfully, I manage to speak at the one of the Officer in the station and points out my Exit at the Station, and where to walk, and Thankfully, the street is near the station. But the Hostel is far, a 10 minutes walk to and from the station. I am very tired, and I haven’t ate yet on that very day! Just a Full Heavy Breakfast on Morning!
I walk on that street, passed many intersections, and finally, found it! Checked-In immediately, leave my things, and go to bed. Rest. Very exhausting!

Where to Stay:
I stayed at Akihabara Grids Hostel , they offer affordable capsules per night. It was exceptional.
Around 8:30PM, I get up for a while to explore a little around the area, turns out to be nothing in the area, because the center is at Akihabara, which is minutes walk from the Hostel. Well, I’m just too tired. I stayed at the dining area of the Hostel,to eat my little BurgerMcDo came from here, for my dinner. Haha, super budget indeed.
Meeting new friends at Hostel. Can’t remember her name, Russian Gal, just exploring Tokyo too. 😀
Ohhh my gosh! I didn’t expect to see Rio Uchida here on Japan Television! She is my Ultimate Japanese Crush!
After that, Called it a day, Rest early, because that next day, My True Tokyo Adventure will commence! 😀 Very excited for that!
