Japan Trip 2017 Video #3

TWO new videos have been posted to my YouTube feed today. These videos both cover the first half of my day on October 12. Please subscribe to my playlist to see new videos when they come out!

The main video features my day visiting Nihonbashi Bridge and Tokyo Station, which kick off my travels on the Tokaido Road. Before that, though, a poor man’s convenience store breakfast.

Japan Trip 2017 Video #2

Presenting my next Japan travel video! This covers the activity on October 11.

I’ve landed at Narita, and am making my way towards Tokyo as the weather gets worse. I’ve planned to visit Tokyo SkyTree tonight, and I read that the clouds will eventually break up later in the evening. Will the reports hold true? Watch the video to find out! I’ll also stroll a bit around the SkyTree, finding one of my favorite drinks in a vending machine along the way.

Thanks for waiting… here is the first Japan travel video! In this video I focus on my travel experience flying to Tokyo Narita airport.

As this video focuses ONLY on flying, those who want to see what happens after I actually set foot in Japan should wait for the next video…

OTHERWISE, please enjoy this first video, which runs over 20 minutes. You’ll see how I traveled in a premium class of service, thanks to redeeming my American Airlines frequent flyer miles. This cost 60,000 miles to travel in international business class. My connecting flight, from Dallas to Tokyo, was in Japan Airlines’ 787 Dreamliner.

 

Japan Trip Teaser Video Posted!

Hello! It’s already been almost two weeks since I returned from Japan, and I miss it already!

I’m sorry to have been silent here on the blog as I’ve focused my posts on my Facebook page, and a little bit on Instagram too. Now that I am starting to review all of my photos and videos I hope to share all of the experiences of my trip with you here!

The first video is available, and that’s the teaser video! I used software called Quik from GoPro, which is free to download, to automatically assemble photos and videos set to music. This gives you a first glimpse at what I saw in Japan. Enjoy!

Time to go back to Japan!

This week I will go to Japan for the fourth time.

It’s wonderful to be able to go across the Pacific horizons again and visit a culture that I’ve appreciated for almost all my life.

I am still lacking in my Japanese after all these years, but I’ll manage.

The preparation is over. The luggage is packed… almost.

I’ll try to share some updates here, but during the trip I’ll most likely be sharing updates on my Facebook page (facebook.com/myjapantips), on Twitter/Periscope (@myjapantips) and on Instagram (jrsideproject).

I look forward to sharing my progress with everyone.

間もなく, 日本… Here I come!
