We are blessed by mostly good weather throughout our trip. The only rainy day we had was on Tuesday, 6 Nov'18. And we're thankful for that 🤗 since we didn't plan much outdoor activity on that day.
Part 1 ~ When we started early that day (06:27am) to climb 400 steps up to Chureito Pagoda, the weather was somewhat still friendly. It was cloudy but still considered clear and not foggy. We still can enjoy the view of "hidden" Fujisan 🗻 from the top 😅. Then it was starting to drizzled during our descend, all the way till our departing train back to Shinjuku-Tokyo, and up till the rest of the day. There was also a bit of 'action-packed' drama when transferring from the Fujikyu train to the Limited Express Azusa train bound for Shinjuku. We literally only have less than 60 second to make the transfer between the Fujikyu train, which arrived at 11:04 at Otsuki station, to Limited Express Azusa train, which also arrived and departs at 11:04 at the same station 😶😶😶. The transfer involved climbing the stairs from platform 2 (yeap no escalator), crossing the overhead bridge and running all the way down to platform 5. Amazingly, we did it!!! 🎉🎉 Thank God 😆😆.
Part 2 ~ Arrived in Shinjuku, we continue to explore Nakano, a neighboring area with few train stops from Shinjuku. Our main destination was Daily Chico, an ice cream shop which offer 8 layers different taste of ice cream for ¥550 only 😋😋😋 yummy. Be careful when you eat it, there was one uncle in front of us who tried to took picture of his 8 layers ice cream and failed miserably... his ice cream dropped to the floor before he can even tasted it 😢😰. And apart from the ice cream, we also found a good bargain shop which having sale of fashionable clothing with the price cheaper than the ice cream price 😎😍😁.
