Exciting Tokyo

[Tokyo is such an exciting city for anyone from anywhere in the world. It is a mixture of ultra modern and traditional, such as historic temples.

For this city, I have pictures supplied by my friend Ms Kwai Heong on FB. (www.facebook.com/kwai.heong.9) She is also at @kwaiheong on IG. She visited Japan recently.

 Kinkaku-ji (or Golden Pavilion) of Kyoyo


I featured a pic of my beautiful friend Naoko Shintani from Kyoto, Japan when she was at the Tottori Sand Dunes not too long ago. (http://www.tvsmith.my/travel/mauloa-nao-tottori-sand-dunes). She is a long time friend of mine from Instagram (@mauloa_nao) and @wajxaqibmanik on Twitter.

Am happy to kick off MyCen Hotel's feature of its first Japanese city with a picture of Kinkaku-ji (or Golden Pavilion), a famous golden stupa; or monument honouring Buddha's relics.

The Red Brick Office.

The Red Brick Office.Hokkaido

Someone, booked through me, the APA Hotel Sapporo-Susukino-Ekimae in Sapporo City in Hokkaido Prefecture in Northern Japan. I have no idea who the person is but I always enjoy looking at an unfamiliar hotel and to study nearby landmarks to learn something new. It is about 8 min by subway or 1.1 km from the former Hokkaido Government Office. Constructed in 1888, the building deployed American neo-baroque architecture and it is known as "the red brick office" pic from Agoda.

Mauloa Nao At The Tottori Sand Dunes

Beautiful Naoko Shintani is from Kyoto, Japan. She is like a pen pal of mine from Instagram (@mauloa_nao) and Twitter. I am guessing no younger person will know what a "pen pal" is nowadays. We communicate in Bahasa Melayu and Bahasa Indonesia text.

She spent a big part of her childhood growing up in Bali where she learned the language on her own. We bond because of our mutual love for animals and nature. She is now back in Kyoto and Osaka - about 15 minutes apart by bullet train.
