Bar Kanpachi

AKB and their sister groups have their own cafe. Glay and L’arc-en-ciel also have their own cafe, even for a temporary. A little bit different case with LDH, even though the cafe is not related to any group, at least Amazing Coffee is managed under LDH. Then…. how about JE?

JE true to its nature as an anti mainstream agency of course doesn’t have one. So, some fans actually made their own cafe/bar as a hanging place for JE’s group fans. One of them is Bar Kanpachi. Based on the name, you may guest which JE group this bar is dedicated for. Yup, it’s Kanjani8.

Universal Studio Japan: Snoopy Studio

Bagi yang pernah baca page About, pasti tau dong kalo salah satu dari kami yang ada fans berat Snoopy.  Pokoknya hampir semua barangnya ada sentuhan Snoopy. Bo, ampe walkman aja bela-belain beli yang Snoopy edition (baca ceritanya di sini). Jadi wajar aja pas ke Universal Studio Japan (USJ), kunjungan ke Snoopy Studio di area Universal Wonderland hampir sama wajibnya dengan kunjungan ke The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

H: "Aaaa.... Snoopy! Ayo kita masuk!" A: "Ntar aja kita ke Harry Potter dulu mumpung masih pagi" H: "..... see you soon, Snoopy" *lebay*

Akomodasi: Hotel Shin-Imamiya

Jalan ke Jepang kurang afdol kalau ga ngerasain tidur di atas futon beralaskan tatami. Banyak banget penginapan tradisional Jepang (ryokan) yang menawarkan kamar jenis ini lengkap dengan kisah sejarahnya serta beragam fasilitas lain sebagai tradisi. Tapi tentu harganya luar biasa mahal. Nah, buat yang traveling dengan dana terbatas macam kami ini, tetap bisa kok merasakan tidur di kamar bergaya Jepang di hostel/hotel sederhana dengan harga standar. Untuk  Osaka, kami merekomendasikan Hotel Shin-Imamiya.
