Japan: Nagoya and Toyota: 4 days Autumn Itinerary


Travel Date: Nov 14-17, 2015
Temperature: Minimum at 11.6 Celsius, Maximum at 17.4 Celsius; Rained for 3 out of 4 days stay in the city.

Bearable cold temperature (coming from a tropical country).  No need for fleece yet, you can have double shirt and leather for layering.


If you have ICOCA for Greater Osaka (Kansai) and SUICA for Greater Tokyo (Kanto), make sure to bring it in Nagoya.

I know this fact, but still failed to bring my 2 cards.  So I looked for either TOICA or MANACA.

It will always be a flavorful Kit Kat and Pocky chocolate biscuits when it comes to Japan.  The regular, macha and dark  Kit Kat are available in the city.  But the unique flavors can be found in the airport. 

 Postcards from Korankei - which I sent across US, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and back to the Philippines.

For cheaper food expense, enjoy the food wraps and yummy breads and wide variety of teas and juice in Family Mart or other convenience shops.

I mistakenly ordered for cold ramen during autumn while waiting in the airport.
