Japan - Day One

by - 4:32 AM

I'm letting myself teleport into that time when the trip was just a plan until it finally was day one of our unforgettable trip to the land of the rising sun. We arrived at the Kansai Airport around 7:30pm and as suspected, the line for the Immigration took forever! Upon finishing after 3 hours, Cory and I had to ride the train from the airport to Tennoji Station because the hotel where we stayed for a night does not have a shuttle service and as advised, taking the train would be much cheaper than riding a cab. 

I did not think that it would be so hard to find a hotel. Even if there were so many directions and signs, we still managed to get lost. When we finally found where Osaka Marriot Miyako Hotel was located, we could not wait to check-in and it was just too bad that we arrived so late, we had no choice but to order room service for dinner. Basically, our first night was a waste but the hotel food and the beautiful room gave us a good rest. 

Here are some of the photos during our first day

 At the airport (obviously) while waiting for our airplane
 The view outside my window was such a beauty
Fun fact: I am very much afraid of flying but it's probably the thought of being so high above the ground most especially the taking off and the landing.
 I literally wanted to try out every single Onigiri but due to a lack of time, I just got the one on the lower right. It was so legit! It tastes so good!
 Train going to our hotel! Everyone was so quiet and I love that everyone respects everyone's need of peace and quiet.
 Hello to the sleeping photobomber. 
 Getting lost trying to find our hotel!
 Finally found the elevator where the hotel was located. Mariott Hotel was located on the 19th floor. We could have taken a cab going to the hotel but as advised, taking one is very expensive so we decided to get lost. Lol

 Luckily, the hotel room service was open until 2 in the morning so ta-da! Dinner time! Rice Balls or make-your-own Onigiri), beef noodles, miso soup and tea!

 This is just our first day and we did not really have the time to explore since it's midnight already but tomorrow is definitely an adventure to look forward to. It's actually my first time in Japan so you'll be reading how amazed I am of this country. One amazing fact: The hotel's bathroom is not like the other hotels where the shower area and the toilet area are in one room. The toilet area is near the main door and its toilet seat have so many functions! Not to mention the automative seats!
