Japan (Feb 2012) Day 1: Singapore to Sapporo
We took JAL this time, and had to transit at Tokyo Narita Airport before finally arriving at Shin-Chitose Airport at Hokkaido.
JAL, while their in-flight entertainment is better than my previous trip's Cathay, however I didn't like the seats on JAL flights. Too narrow and the seat is not comfortable.
This trip had 3 main highlights:
1, to experience snow during winter in Hokkaido.
2, to experience overnight train Twilight Express from Hokkaido to Osaka (22hrs).
3, to go to One Piece theme exhibits in Huis Ten Bosch at Kyushu.
|Yes, I bought new clothes for her specially for this trip.|
Since we had a 2 hours transit at Tokyo Narita airport, so we went to the JR office at Narita airport to exchange for our JR pass and also to book the Overnight train Twilight Express for our Day 9 since it's a very popular train.
