ANDREW GAUTAMA  badass with a good heart.

After hours of our sun-sand-sea therapy, we decided to grab a quick bite at a nearby restaurant. We got a seat at the main timber-decked balcony overseeing the big blue. Let me tell you, the view was a total postcard material. The dreamy sky, with the subtle gradations of viridescent cerulean that ended in a warm golden shade; the seemingly continuous path to the sun that shimmered on the surface of the endless ocean; the salty breeze that kept on annoyingly blowing my hair into my eyes; the pork-crazed company I call my family; they were all perfect. The sunburns we got eventually healed. The memories, they stay

• Fuglen Tokyo •
Shibuya has so much to offer. You could spend a whole day here and you still won't finish exploring this popular shopping and entertainment area of Tokyo. It is an exceedingly colorful and busy district with swarms of people going out and about with their own hustles and bustles.
After wisely draining our cash on useless kawaii junks and roaming around with our usual oohs and aahs at almost every single interesting stuffs we laid our eyes on, we stopped by this cute coffee shop at a corner near Yoyogi Park. Fuglen Tokyo has no food in their menu but my goodness, they do serve some remarkably good coffee. Now I'm not a coffee expert but I believe my tastebuds work perfectly well. It was an evening well spent getting that caffeine-rush with my retarded buddies

• Yasaka Shrine •
See all those lanterns lined up spick and span? Turns out that they will exquisitely light up when it's night time, and I couldn't believe we missed the opportunity of witnessing it. We passed by Yasaka Shrine on our way to enjoy the hanami in a nearby park. I love finding accidental, unplanned, beautiful spots that makes me stop and just marvel for a minute; taking in the view, noticing tiny intricate details, really smelling the air, realizing all my senses are fully awake. It's a feeling of excitement, the thrill of being somewhere pleasantly unfamiliar, and also being strangely liberated, knowing that no one here knows who I am. Simple yet perplexing feelings, all at the same time

• Moto-Hakone •
Up bright and early, we took a relatively short bus ride from our ryokan-inspired lodge to Moto-Hakone. And as we arrived, we were astonished by this enormous vermilion Torii Gate in the middle of the road. It was somewhat unusual, seeing one so massive yet standing in solitary, without any temples in sight. But with cruising Lake Ashi on a classic-looking-pirate-ship-with-cannons-on-its-sides as our destination in mind, we had to continue moving along

• Kyoto Station •
People holding layers of matcha, black sesame, and brown rice ice creams filled my vision. I started salivating, imagining how delectable those unholy asian alliances must've tasted. And boy, was I pleased despite the outstretched queue. The combinations yielded a splendid bittersweet with a slight saline aftertaste. It was ambrosial, I kid you not. Might've been 10°C outside, but no weather can be too cold for ice cream

• Okunoshima •
In a way, being mobbed by wild creatures who see us as a primary source for food sounds terrifying. But it really was an amazing experience; to be writhing with laughter on the ground, literally covered with bunnies, scavenging us for nom noms. The only downfall is, you kinda get covered in some damp patches, which I assume is partly their poo. Nasty? Yucky? Unhygienic? You betcha. Nevertheless, I would do it again someday. As for now, I'll say またね to this island 👋🏻

• Okunoshima •
Getting to this exceedingly popular tourist destination requires a short ferry ride from the mainland. The island is packed with a legion of fluffy residents, and I'm not talking about the groups of chubby white haired oba-chan(s). Watching the bounding herds of friendly bunnies stampede towards us when we put our food-filled hands out was spirit-lifting. Nobody should ever decline an opportunity to enjoy the company of these furry vegan friends

• Tadanoumi Station •
This was our last stop before reaching Okunoshima - the haven to friendly bunnies, and it was probably the cutest island ever. Not forgetting to bring some rabbit bait.. uh, I mean food, we walked to Tadanoumi Port to take the Omishima ferry as it started to drizzle; shivering a bit to the cool air and droplets on our faces

• Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park •
Visiting the Peace Memorial Museum in Hiroshima had a profound effect on me. This so-called City of Peace was once a target of a weapon of mass destruction. Hundreds of thousands of souls perished in seconds. They said the atomic heat was so great that the victims burned instantly to ashes - except that there were no ashes. For the first time, I identified science with death and destruction. Hearing it gave me an empty feeling in the stomach. They didn't seem bitter talking about it. But one glance into their eyes, you could see the scars of history embedded within

• Genbaku Domu •
A lone silent structure, a heart-wrenching skeletal form, a standing surviving remain. A stark and powerful symbol of the tremendous destructive force humankind is capable of inventing. But also; an icon of hope for world peace, and the elimination of all nuclear weapons in both aesthetic and architectural value

• Kawaguchi Lake •
With Mount Fuji as our destination in mind, we took a bus and a 20-minute leisure walk of an unforgettable view. The fog from the night before has cleared up considerably and revealed the magnificent splendor and serenity of nature. This lake is undoubtedly one of the most gorgeous spot to enjoy Fuji-san from afar

• Niōmon of Kiyomizu-dera •
We came to a halt, mesmerized by the deva gate. Fully aware that we haven't reached the temple itself, we stopped as we laid our eyes on the iconic scarlet architecture. Standing there, taking in the magnificent view, breathing in the regal air, once again we were in awe. Falling in love with a city is such a bizarre feeling.
