Before starting my part-time job I decided to travel to Nikko just to relax and be prepared for being stuck up in the future.
The weather almost killed me cuz I didn't prepare for that freaking crazy wind T.T Oh dear, from now on Im gonna check the weather carefully! I mean I have to!
But still Nikko was just so beautiful that I turned out to be a silly girl with that pose lol.
We got a plan to go snow boarding but it was cancelled cuz there was no snow for us lol. Instead we went to Nabewariyama. I was freezed on the top but Im glad we made it there. People come here and enjoy udon but we were unlucky that the shop owner said NO to us! He got mad also! Oh well Even Japanese can't convince him so I had no choice but some chocolate for lunch. Sad story! Be prepared people! It's worth trying udon there but just in case, ...
I could do anything on New year Eve except for cooking Soba as Japanese Tradition because of my cold. So I consider my New Year starting on the January 2nd when I had my first tip of 2016 to Hakone. Another escape lol. It was a day trip and a good choice if you don't really have time!
We went to Nonbei Yokocho to have some drink in a very small bar. The best thing is that all the bars are very small, and can not have more than 10 customers. You can find any type of bar here from traditional Japanese bar where the owner can't speak English and serve yaki soba or udon right in front of you, to a very hipster bar with loud music,... In some bars which open till late and have music you need to pay the extra fee other than your drinks. It's not a pricey places and you should come once when you're in Shibuya.
I like taking a random break to refresh. This time I decided to go snow boarding for the first time in my life and I had so much fun.
My friend helped me to book a tour in Togari Onsen Ski Resort.
