Trip to Japan - Preflight

Found a good flight from Hawaii to Tokyo. I paid more for Business Class this time around. It is just not comfortable in Economy with these long flights. It is not going to be as long of a flight compared to Bali or The Azores Islands. 8 hours compared to 18 or 24. Leaves at 4pm on the 11th. 8 hour plane ride. I will actually arrive on the 12th at 8pm because of the time difference. They are 19 hours ahead of Hawaii.

Got a hotel not too far from the airport. I, on second thought, wish I had got a hotel closer to the center of all the things I am going to try and see, but the prices were outrageous. I have prepared a list again of all the places I want to see. Of course, there is so much to see and do, that I left some things off. I could literally spend the whole 10 non-flying days just going around Tokyo. I will be in Tokyo until the 17th.

From there, I will fly to Osaka. I got a hotel not too far from the Airport again. I prepared a list for Osaka and Kyoto. Again, too many places and things to see, especially since I am splitting the 4 non-flying days between the two. Going to stay around Osaka on Friday, go to Kyoto on Saturday. Depending on what I get done or what is higher on the list, I will either stay in Osaka or go to Kyoto Sunday. That following Monday I bought a ticket for Universal Studios, so that day is full. Tuesday the 22nd I will fly back to Tokyo and fly out the next day. I got a rental car for both places. It’s going to be interesting again, since they drive on the left side of the road like Bali. I did okay in Bali, but I was on a Moped, so we will soon find out. I tried to have really good info for the things on my list this time around. Looked up each thing, and added days and times the place is open. That way I hopefully will not waste time going to something that may not be open.

Well it was a very quiet new year's eve for me, but I look forward to a great 2023. Hopefully find a partner in crime to go exploring with. I don't really care if it turns out to be a love interest

Well, although I feel and have the energy of someone in their thirties, and probably act that way too, haha, my body turned 55 today. I don't feel my age, and hopefully I will never lose that spirit.

I woke up around 8am and it was raining outside. I checked out right before 10am and decided I would just return the car and walk around the airport until time to board. Even with an umbrella, It wo
