Thousands of dazzling lights twinkle a thousand tiny pieces of rice terraces. A special illumination called “Aze No Kirameki”. Read latest blog post on Ishikawa to find out where this is!

New blog post: Gokayama, Toyama Prefecture.

Many of you have probably heard or been to Shirakawago in Gifu prefecture before, do you know that not too far away, there’s a similar gassho-zukkuri village that is smaller with less tourists too? It’d be a good alternative if you prefer to spend some peace and quiet time in this lovely world heritage site.

Spring is definitely my favorite time to visit Tokyo DisneySea for its pastel floral Easter theme! 🌸🐭🌿🐹🌷🐰🌼💐🕊
.
I get many messages asking me which park I recommend, Disneyland or DisneySea. It’s hard for me to make a choice, but I personally always ended up visiting Sea because I just can’t resist their Duffy’s friend marchandise 😭. Which is your favorite?

41県目-秋田🐕♨️.
41st Prefecture - Akita. Bucket list Onsen - Nyuto Onsen in Akita, checked! 乳頭温泉 literally means Nipple Hotspring, which sounds really strange but it is really what you think it is, as the Nyuto Mountain has a... nipple. 😳 The name is also aptly given as the spring here has an opaque, milky hue that resembles that of a nipple’s production? Haha. Mommies who has ever hand-express in a bathtub knows it (🖐🏻 guilty! Did it many times when I had to travel without @cheesiepetit. Sorry if TMI😂). This is the konyoku (mixed bath), and I think it makes perfect sense that it is made into a mixed bath, as the milkiness makes the water non see-through. Females can feel at ease that you won’t be exposed. No photos are allowed of course, but we went there 6am and there was no one so I snapped a photo just so you can see how amazing it is, surrounded by fluffy white snow left from last night’s light pour. You are welcome. 😊
.
Would you dare to go into a mixed bath?

こんな絶景自分の目で見えて...感動が止まらない。
This view alone. Is worth all the traveling - one shinkansen ride to Sendai and a local train to Funaokajoshi Park, Miyagi. Definitely bucket-list worthy.
It is real. This Sakura tunnel. 🌸🚇I saw it with my own eyes today, taken with iPhone over the train window screen, edited with a bit of color enhancement. 😳 (My IG story has a real video snippet of it.) You are still in time for about a week more to witness this dreamy reality from a fantasy scene. Bookmark this for your Place To Go Before I Die list! And anyway, Sendai is just 1.5 hour away from Tokyo via a Hayabusa, it’s crazy!!
.
Doesn’t this make you love and wanna visit Japan more?😍

#cheesieinMiyagi #hanami2018 #ilovejapan

Definitely the most beautiful hanami spot I’ve been this year😭. I was like whaaat isss thisssss😱🤯 how can such a place exist with no tourists in sight!! I’m so glad we came here!! For those chasing the cherry blossom, you are still in time for full bloom in Miyagi Prefecture, and soon in the northern region of Tohoku. 🌸
.
This place is called Hitome Senbonzakura (一目千本桜, literally a thousand Sakura in sight) in Ogawara Shiroishi River, Miyagi Prefecture. Catch the endless pink blossom along the 2km riverbank. We walked 4km in total yesterday, with a luggage and a stroller 😂. Worth every step! Bookmark this #cheesieapproved hanami spot for your next hanami! 🌸

仙台にやって参りました〜🚅. Today I drove my Hayabusa to bring Junya to Sendai to eat gyutan. 🐮👅.
Haha we are just gonna keep doing silly things like this at every station. 😝

Yesterday, on the way back to Tokyo from Shimane. It’s a loooong journey!🚄🚞🚉
.
Right now we are Tohoku-bound, fully utilizing my Whole Japan JR Pass I got from @klooktravel. (love the pass cover design!🗻🌸)
.
So far I have used it to conquer 4 new prefectures!! 🗾Quite a few followers asked if I bought tickets for @cheesiepetit too, as children below 6 do not require tickets to board the trains. But I got Junya a JR pass anyway because he can’t be sitting on the danna’s lap all the time 😅. As for Sakura, she sits with me. 😊
.
Many also asked me for advice on which pass to get as there are SO MANY types. I know it could be overwhelming. For me whose most important mission is to check off all 47 prefectures, there’s no doubt about picking the Whole Japan Pass 😃! (So worth it... for me and Junya, but not for the danna since the more we travel the more he has to pay, full fare...😅). (Please travel with JR pass allllllll you want before marrying a local or become one yourself😂).
.
You can check out the @klooktravel app to find out exactly which passes suit your need by checking the places you want to travel to. And for new users, you can also use my code “KLOOKCHEESIE” for RM20 (or equivalent in your currency) off your first booking on all Klook offers!

Hope Japan will have you here soon!😍

40県目~鳥取❤︎
40th Prefecture, Tottori.
This is Tottori Hanakairo Flower Park, the largest in Japan. Here’s the entrance to a magnificent flower dome that houses 1000 types of orchids (hello Singapore!). Also in season are tulips and beautiful sakura 🌸.
It’s a 20 mins bus ride from Yonago station (from Shimane on the way back to Okayama). Recommended if you’re in the area! 🌿💐🍃🌷🍁🌹🌺🌲🌸🌼🌳🌻

Completed my sacred shrine pilgrimage with Izumo Taisha in Shimane Prefecture. Firstly of course it was Meiji Jingu (Tokyo), last year I also visited Ise Jingu (Mie), Itsukushima Jinja (Hiroshima) and Amani-Iwate Jinja (Miyazaki). Izumo Taisha is one of the oldest shrines in Japan and is said to be the place where all Shinto Gods gather. It’s known for the giant shimenawa (sacred straw rope), which my Tabikaeru🐸 also visited and sent me a photo of! 😛 For those praying for good relationships, Izumo Taisha is also specially famous for its “enmusubi” (matchmaking) power. Anyone putting this on your list next?⛩

39県目、到着❤︎
39th Prefecture, Shimane. This is their prefectural mascot, Shimanekko🐱. I can’t believe I’m almost completing my 47-Prefecture Map. 🗾A few followers asked me how long it took me to get this far. Well, the first time I visited Japan was 10 years ago in 2008. But I only obsessively wanted to complete this mission in very recent years. In the past year I’ve probably been to at least 12 new ones. It looks like I’m achieving this life mission much earlier than expected. What’s next? I guess I’ll start from zero again, this time to conquer all the favorite onsen and shrines on my list. ⛩♨️
.
Who is joining my crazy missions?? 🖐🏻
