Back from Japan and back in reality!

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 30, 2014, 8:45 PM
Man, what a blast Tokyo is! Japan is one country you all definitely need to check off your bucket list of travels! I thank God to have set foot here. I'm also very grateful my friends and I made to and came back safely. 

We started out after a 10 hour flight traveling by bus to the Tokyo Bus Terminal where we debarked and walked Tokyo's streets, jet lagged and ready for bed. After a kind local showed us the way on the subway, we found our way to the neighborhood of Asakusa, where we were staying for most of the trip. After admiring the Senso-ji Temple at night, we caught a taxi which ended up taking us not far out of the way! But, of course, we were new to Tokyo so it's all good. We found our hostel, and crashed! We found my other buddy the next day who was staying at a different place, and from that day on, we visited the following (in no order):

Senso-ji Temple, went to the 5th station at Mt. Fuji, Sega Joypolis, Akihabara, Shinjuku, Shibuya Crossing, The Imperial Palace, Tokyo Tower, Ginza, Roppongi, a sake brewery, Robot Restaurant, two maid cafes and a cat cafe!

We did quite a bit while in Tokyo, and wish we could've done more! 8 days of all around sightseeing, drinking and chillaxing when we could. I was sad when the trip was over. Flying over the Pacific, and watching Mr. Peabody and Sherman and the Wedding Singer on the in-flight movie screen, I was blessed and thankful.

It's crazy, traveling is exhausting, but a joy at the same time. It wears you out, but you come home ready to share stories and pictures with friends and family and feel like you have gained so much knowledge and happiness in the process. Airports suck, but are necessary portals to worlds where magic can happen and good times can be had! 

In short, thank you Japan! One of my favorite countries, and one that I can say: I came, I saw and I conquered! 

God Bless all, have a great evening and a Happy Halloween!

"If the weather is right, and the waves are tight, this eagle spreads his wings and takes flight!" -Quote © Eric Hernandez. 2008. Yeps, just a typical Hispanic guy getting through life. :) Loving the good times and hating the bad. I've been described a lot of things in life, among them: zany, quiet, shy, outgoing, drunk, laid-back, excitable, observer, friendly, thinker, daydreamer, care-free and gullible are some of the traits that I've been assigned and are known by family and friends. I like to surround myself with good people and a great time! I'm the kind of guy who, once things are in places, doesn't like for them to deviate or for others to deviate from them. Like any human, I hate being deceived, cheated or jacked out of something. Some of my heroes are Pharrell Williams, Jason Statham, Nick Hexum and SA Martinez from 311, Walt Disney, Bruce Lee and Sherlock Holmes.
