Checked in at the airport!
I only have basic foundation on, so gonna wear specs to cover up those panda eyes.
This is going to be my first SQ flight! Excited but very sleepy now.
Flying soon. Bye everybody. See ya in 12 hours? If I have wifi.
My breakfast during the flight! Baked eggs and sausage. Not amazing but it’s the experience that matters.
This is a refreshment. A very light lunch before we land in Tokyo. It’s a chicken satay wrap. Overheated, the wrap was crispy at the ends.
That’s Mount Fuji! My sister says it looks like a nipple. Lol! It feels different looking at the real thing. During a certain time, Mount Fuji looks like it’s floating on the clouds.
Here’s a tip: If you are taking morning flights, sit on the left side of the plane to enjoy this view.
Because bored and this looks like a nice thing to take photo of.
At Haneda Airport! We will have to get out of this airport and get to the domestic flight terminal to get on another flight to Hiroshima.
Quite an interesting sight at the domestic airport. People can check in their baggage here. It’s automated, they just have to place their baggage inside the machine.
We still had time to walk around a little before boarding. Don’t have to rush.
I got this drink, told boyfriend it’s Katy Perry drink. He imagined it to taste like pink dolphin but actually…
It’s only water la! Hahaha!
Bought a box of tonkotsu sandwich to share. Quite good, would be better if we could have it warm.
This looks really good, bought a small box to try. Japanese packaging all so pretty!
Slight matcha fragrance but it’s a little too sweet. Around SGD $6 for a box of 5.

We’re at Hiroshima Airport! It’s a very small place with only 2 baggage conveyor belts.
Getting bus tickets to Hiroshima Bus Center. Look at the red letters at the most left, those are the timing for the buses from the airport. The timings at the next few columns is the timing where the bus will be at the next few stops.
Also note that we have to take the bus is at Platform 1, which is just right outside the airport.
Select your tickets and chi-ching! Maximum 3 tickets at one time, which is funny because there’s 4 of us.
Out comes our change and tickets. Everything is so automated!
The so-called Platform 1.
And the boyfriend.
Inside the bus. It’s just like taking bus in Taiwan. The only difference is the language. As long as you keep watching the time, you will get down at the right station. They’re very punctual.
Yeah! At the bus center and it looks like that…
Then we started walking to the hotel, walk-able distance anyway. Our butts are numb due to the flights.
Saw the atomic bomb site while we were on the way to the hotel.
Keep walking down along the river to our hotel.
That’s our hotel, Sunroute Hiroshima.
Checking in before we head for our already late dinner.
There are vending machines at the hotel lobby.
Some kind of flea going on.
Ooooh~! Cute make up brushes too, got flowers and hearts. Not cheap though.
The room is very very small. We need to do ballet to move around.
The toilet looks far more spacious.
Wash up for 15 mins and we’re out to look for dinner!
Going to a okonomiyaki store that’s quite highly rated on TripAdvisor, Hassei.
There’s a few shops here, we had to google and see how the shop looks like or what is the name of the shop in Japanese letterings.
There it is, hidden away in a corner. It’s 八誠 in Japanese.
Close up of the shop front.
A very small and humble shop with lots of graffiti on the walls.
Don’t worry, there’s English on the menu. 👍
Cabbage with pork, spring onions and eggs. Yumz. I like.
Mushrooms fried in butter. I usually wouldn’t go for this because of the butter but I have to say… this is really good. The butter was very very fragrant.
Okonomiyaki that’s prepared with soba noodles. Mmm~ soba noodles have a more tough texture to it. More feel.
This is prepared with udon. I prefer this because the udon adds a little sweetness? It’s like comfort food in a way.
Top it with mayo!
We have to eat with this little tool. In the end, we gave up because we simply are not used to it.
Family mart time. That matcha ice cream looks really yum. Didn’t get it. Too full.
You’ll find muji in Family Mart… whattt…
Bought this so that I could clear some shit. Haha!
