Bus Willer: Pilihan Murah Transportasi Antar Kota di Jepang

Jepang tidak hanya Tokyo. Sayang rasanya kalau mengeksplor Jepang hanya dari satu kota saja. Tentu saja kita bisa memanfaatkan kereta cepat Shinkansen untuk pindah dari satu kota ke kota lainnya, tapi harga yang dikeluarkan pun lumayan merogoh kocek. Untunglah ada bus malam yang harganya jauh lebih murah daripada tiket kereta. Plus karena perjalanan semalaman, bisa sekalian menghemat biaya menginap! Yay! #kopedtraveler

Prayer Room Haneda Airport

Selamat menjalankan ibadah Ramadan bagi seluruh muslim! Sebagai muslim traveler, pengalaman berada di negeri orang saat Bulan Suci gini pasti seru. Mulai dari repotnya nyiapain makanan sahur dan berbuka, sampai lemas lunglai menjalani puasa yang lebih dari 18 jam. Tapi yang namanya Ramadan itu selalu indah, apa lagi kebersamaannya yang tetap terasa meski jauh dari orang-orang tercinta (awas, curcol!).

Kalau ada yang kebetulan lagi jalan dan singgah di Haneda Airport, kami punya info supaya ibadah Ramadannya tetap afdol meski sedang di negeri Sakura. Sekitar dua tahun lalu, kami pernah mampir ke sini dan cerita sedikit tentang bandara satu ini. Setahun kemudian kami kembali ke Haneda Airport dan ada satu perubahan signifikan (terutama untuk pelancong muslim) yang terjadi, alhamdulillah…

Filming Location: Yamada Taro Monogatari – Green Slope

Having one Arashi’s member acts in a dorama is very common. But having two of them as the lead actors in one dorama is a luxury! That’s why Yamada Taro Monogatari is precious. Aired on TBS in summer 2007, this dorama had Arashi’s Ninomiya Kazunari as Yamada Taro and Sakurai Sho as Mimura Takuya.

There are many scenes and places which we foundΒ memorable. Remember when those two climbed theΒ Tokyo’s Stairways to Heaven in Atago Shrine? Β This time, we’re gonna take you down the slope just like what Mimura-kun did when he was stalking Yamada-kun all the way home from school.

Restaurants in Roppongi for Muslim

What do you do when you are hungry? You’ll look for food, right? But when the desired food is not there for some reasons, you’ll find alternatives. Anything will do, as long as your stomach is fed. Well, in some cases its ingredients and our budget constrain. That was basically what happened while we were starving in Roppongi.

To be honest, we came up with this post by accident. It’s all thanks to a restaurant that was closed during our visit. We looked for other alternatives, and Β found out that there are quite a few of Halal food along this Tokyo’s high-class area .
