In early March this year I went to Japan for the very first time in life and you could say perhaps it was long time coming to finally be able to go there. Anyway for those who visit this website regularly (I doubt there’s anyone though) will have noticed that I already had a Japan 2017 post previously and it disappeared. This was because my website database got corrupted by an upgrade and destroyed my entire website and despite my many attempts to work with my webhost to restore my website, all I could recover was everything before the Japan 2017 post.
So I sort of gave up because how do you rewrite a post? Plus I have forgotten everything that I wrote about for the Japan 2017 post. I finally got back into writing into this post because Japan 2017 was really important for me and as 2017 is ending, I wanted to make sure that the memory of Japan is recorded somewhere.
This photo at Chureito Pagoda is my personal favourite photo as it holds so much memories for me, before this I was at Fuji-Q Highland and it was quite uneventful there as we queue for more than 1.5 hours for a ride and they announced that the ride had to be closed due to the wind conditions. Plus my sister lost her ride pass and had to repurchased another one. As we ended the day at Fuji-Q, we made the decision to check out Chureito Pagoda despite the fact that it seems like we will probably not catch the sunset in time. I think my most memorable moments were rushing to reach the base of Chureito Pagoda only to realise that the amount of steps needed to go up looks insurmountable.
It was all worth it in the end though. The view I saw was definitely a personal top 10 of all that I have encounter so far and this time I was glad that I was able share that with my sister unlike in Nepal where I enjoyed the night view at Namche Bazaar alone.
P.S: I’m going to do a full website backup right after posting this post so that history does not repeat itself again haha.
In the meantime, I’m not sure when the next post will be published on this website, do check out my instagram account where I continue to post more regular updates through my instastories and longform instagram posts.
