My first fall trip!
A few months back, I was having second thoughts as to whether I will push through with the trip. Glad I went through with this one.
5:24 am – Got up
9:46 am – Off to the airport
There were a few taxis waiting on the nearby corner.
10:26 am – Airport
10:51 am – Checked in
11:05 am – Lunch
I ate at Wendy’s again: the same 2-piece chicken as the last time.
2:53 pm – Started boarding
3:07 pm – Seated at plane
3:24 pm – Plane moved
3:46 pm – Plane took off
It was kinda hot in the airplane. My back was sweating.
Not much happened during that part of the day. I basically spent most of the day doing some work and studying a bit before the flight.
7:57 pm – Plane landed
8:15 pm – Done with immigration
There was no line!
8:52 pm – Train to Meitetsu-Nagoya station
I waited for the next empty train so I could sit down and take some pictures.
9:42 pm – Nagoya station
It was cold out there. I look like an idiot wearing only shorts and a t-shirt.
10:19 pm – Guesthouse Wasabi Nagoya Ekimae
It was my first time staying in a capsule hotel.
They have five floors, one floor for each gender, two for mixed dormitories and a reception/restaurant area on the first floor.
Turning left after exiting the elevator leads to the sleeping area. My room was on the third floor.
The sleeping area looked oddly similar to the mountain hut I stayed at during the Mt Fuji climb. Except this one had partitions.
On the opposite side of the sleeping area is the luggage place. I was given a key with a corresponding chain to secure oversized luggage. I didn’t use it as I only had a backpack with me.
The entrance to the shower, toilet and washroom facilities are directly opposite the elevator doors.
There were two mannequins dressed in kimonos (the other one might be a yukata, I’m not sure) beside it.
I counted three showers, two toilets, four sinks, several mirrors, and a coin-operated washing machine and dryer.
There’s shampoo and body wash too so there’s no need to bring those (unless you’re a bit particular with the products you use).
200JPY for a 38-minute wash (detergent can be bought from the front desk for 50JPY) and 100JPY for a 30-minute (heated) spin-dry.
11:09 pm – Konbini visit
11:33 pm – Back to guesthouse
12:19 am – Sleep
