Japan | Day 1/14 : A dream came true

Have you ever had your dream come true? My childhood dream was granted last December which was to step my foot in Japan. I do love Japan, all of it, since I was a kid. There were so many anime and manga that I watched and read up until now. Well it may sounds cheesy, but I can’t even have my soul in my work since November because counting down to the day. I was imagining how will I reacted when I arrived in Japan on that day. Will I cry? Will I shocked? It’s like, ‘Finally I achieve my childhood dream, finally it came true!’.  *sniff* (even when I’m writing right now, I still feel touched, shame on me..haha)

It was exactly a month ago, me and Mr.F departed from Jakarta to Narita which was on 22nd December 2016. It should be 4 of us but the other two friends can’t make it because of other plans. We booked our ticket last February as soon as Mr. F see the ANA website showing December ticket availability! It was cost Rp 7,387,900 for 2-way tickets. It was affordable! We expected it will be more than 10 million rupiah since it was peak season. So happy! So here I am, starts to flashback and share my trips with you guys 🙂
