Explore the wonders of the land of the rising sun named Japan

I am finally glad to have visited the country I have long yearned to visit. It took me by chance to tour in Japan as my main purpose was to just receive my certificate in SENIA (c.f. SENIA Advocacy Awards 2017: “One day I want to honestly say I made it.”) and I appreciated every attraction there was to see in this wonderful paradise. I equally felt accomplished that I finally went to Akihabara and Harujuku – the dream places of every anime, manga, cosplay and Japanese fashion fanatic. I was satisfied to have gone to areas I have always wanted to go to, to have discovered places I never thought I would appreciate, to have bought items I have always wanted to buy and last but not the least, to have spent time with friends who were also in Japan with the same purpose as mine (ie. to attend SENIA conference in Yokohama along with the other members of the network).

Below is the itinerary of my travel in Japan. Time is never wasted no matter how long I have stayed in each of them.
