Train ride from Asakusa to Tokyo Disneyland was a bit tricky as you need to traverse three (3) train lines (with 3 trolley bags and 2 backpacks).

We thought of hiring a taxi, but was a bit turned off with the unjust fare of Y8400 (about P3700) for a taxi ride. So we braved the dependable and cheap train ride, which only cost about Y1900 (about P840).

Ginza Line: Asakusa to Ueno
Hibiya Line: Ueno to Hatchobori
Keiyo Line: Hatchobori to Maihama

TIP: Study Japan's train system well. Plan your train rides/transfers. You can use google map for this.  Other android applications which proved useful during our train planning were:
Tokyo Rail Map Lite and Tokyo Subway Navigation.

The sign that told us we were still on the right track.

We arrived at the Maihama Station after 45mins.  The travel went well, despite a little mishap. We took the stairs, unknowing that there was an elevator while transferring to  Hibiya to Keiyo line (Oh, my poor husband who had to carry most of our luggage).

We arrived at Tokyo Disneyland Resort (TDR) at 9am and headed to the Tokyo Disney Resort Welcome Center.  The TDR center is located left of Maihama Station.  TDR Hotel guests may leave their luggage here (if arriving earlier than the hotel check-in time) and buy themepark tickets. 


We pre-booked a room at the Tokyo Disneyland Hotel for two (2) nights.  It was quite expensive than settling for a hotel outside the TDR complex, but it was very convenient. And hey, we will be sleeping right next to Mickey Mouse.

We got a 3 days Magic Passport which allowed us one day each  at Tokyo Disney Sea (TDS) and Tokyo Disney Land (TDL) and a free day at either TDS or TDL.

At the back is our hotel for 3 days and 2 nights ~ Tokyo Disneyland Hotel.

After depositing our bags at the TDR Welcome Center, we proceeded to Tokyo Disney Land.

Welcome to the Happiest Place on Earth!

Day 4 in Seoul (A Private Tour : Seoul ~ Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island)

Our Day 4 in South Korea was in the outskirt of Seoul ~ Pocheon, Gyeonggi-do.  As it was a little difficult to reach I contacted, "This is Korea" Tours to customize a private tour for my family.

Andy, our Tour Specialist (TS) cum driver and photographer picked us up at the Metro Hotel at 11am as agreed.  It was an easy ride on board a 7-seater limousine van for our family of 4. 

Our tour was personalized based on what we wanted so long as the entire trip is all within the 10 hours we've commissioned.  For our trip, we've decided on Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island.


Sanjeong Lake is situated between Myeongseongsan and Mangbongsan Mountain.  Its name means "as clear as a mountain well". It was built in 1925 as a reservoir to supply to farmlands in Pocheon.

Reached Sanjeong Lake Park early afternoon ~ perfect weather for a cup of hot coffee 

Lots of things to do in the lake park.  We took a paddle boat and walked the lake promenade.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel Kingdom Club

We wanted a special holiday with the kids (they are growing up so fast) and decided to welcome 2018 in Hong Kong Disneyland.  It has after all been 5 years since we have last been to Hong Kong.  Though we were recently in Tokyo Disneyland, the volume of guests was heartbreakingly huge ~ to truly enjoy the park.

We booked a 3 nights stay at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and opted for an upgrade to the Kingdom Club floor.

The elegant service and perks is well worth the additional cost.

Day 2 in Seoul - Part I (War Memorial of Korea, Grevin Wax Museum and the funny Nanta Show)

"Joh-eun achim (Good Morning) Seoul"
Our Day 2 in Seoul is a DIY using Seoul's public transportation. 
After a hearty complimentary breakfast at Metro Hotel, we made our way to Myeongdong Station and headed to the first item in our itinerary.

The War Memorial of Korea
The museum is easily accessible via Subway Line 4 through Samgakji Station, Exit 12.

If you have limited time to tour Seoul and want to see at least one of the city's museums, I highly recommend visiting the War Memorial.  We also visited the National Museum of Korea and liked the War Memorial better.
We spent hours touring the Outdoor Exhibition Area alone. The warships and aircrafts exhibition is truly remarkable. This particular ship is a replica of the Korean Naval Vessel PKM 357, which was involved in bloody naval battle between North and South Korea in 2002.
