Kansai or Western Japan is an area that includes Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and Mie.
In spring, the region transforms into this beautiful destination filled with a sea of cherry blossom trees awash with all shades of pink.
Besides cherry blossom viewing, our itinerary also included other attractions in each city we passed by. We skipped Kyoto for this trip, mainly because we’ve been there several times, but if you haven’t been to Kyoto, I strongly suggest you add it to your itinerary.
Here’s how you can make the most of your Kansai Pass and save money on your travel budget.
Japan has one of the most dazzling light displays, transforming their garden and cities into dazzling dreamlands adorned with thousands of colorful lights and larger-than-life cosmic illuminations.
But did you know that a place near the city of Nagoya holds the biggest illumination display in all of Japan?
Nabano No Sato is a botanical garden plus theme park located in the Mie Prefecture. People from all over the world flock to this garden to witness the variety of vegetation and the fields of gorgeous flowers! But what everybody’s excited about is when, come nighttime, the 8 million LED bulbs light up and transform the gardens into a twinkling wonderland complete with magical light tunnels and animated light shows.
Here are the prices, menu, and exclusive items at the first Philippine Shake Shack located in Central Square BGC!
Not only are we excited with the food, the reasonable price points, but also the Philippine exclusive items! From Ube Shakes, Calamansi Limoneade and of course the yummy ube and calamansi pie concretes!
Shake Shack founded by Danny Meyer has been around since opening in 2004 in New York City and probably is best known for the cult following of its burgers and frozen custard shakes. It’s slow fast-food, so expect big flavors, and a pretty pricey bill not like your usual Mc Donald’s order. That’s mainly because they serve quality 100% Angus beef burgers.
Check out our top favorites…

Forty years ago, Philippine Airlines unveiled its most innovative plane at that time, the Airbus A300B4 proudly bearing the Love Bus “kiss mark” logo.
So fittingly, during PAL’s 5th anniversary, it is yet again another exciting time to fly with the revival of the Love Bus—the same iconic logo placed on their 5th ultra-modern A350 Airbus!
But what makes the A350 so special? The next-generation A350 incorporates a range of technological touchstones that improve both passenger experience and aircraft operations aboard long-haul routes. It is installed with more quiet Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines, the most fuel-efficient engines in service today. With its extra wide body, personal tv screen, free inflight wifi and heartfelt Pinoy hospitality, you’ll definitely fall in love with flying over and over again.
Airbus A350s currently offer business, premium economy and economy seats. Here’s my experience on the A350…
If you’re planning a trip to Tokyo, you might want to make a side trip to one of Japan’s best kept secrets!
Nagano Prefecture, besides having the most accessible snow resort in Japan, is surrounded by sought after attractions like the famed 400-year-old Matsumoto Castle, Zenkoji Temple and the cute wild snow monkeys!
Here are 10 reasons why Nagano is worth checking out.
The Japanese have long been told to visit Zenkoji Temple at least once in their lifetime. The 1,400-year-old temple is one of Japan’s most important pilgrimage sites since the 7th century and is regarded as a National Treasure.
While the lake is fictional in the movie, it is based on Lake Suwa, a body of water in the central region of Nagano Prefecture, Japan.
Lake Suwa, located in the middle of the city, is one of Japan’s most famous lakes. It is known for its hot springs (onsen) and the spectacular Suwa Fireworks Festival where 40,000 fireworks take off, enchanting tourists every summer.
The Suwa area is also known as the “Switzerland of the East”, home to many watchmakers, glassmakers, music box and other precision manufacturers.
