JUMP

Went snowboarding again over the weekend. This time we actually made it to the ski resort!

Bluebird days and magnificent mountain views.
Plenty of reasons to jump for joy.

Yekaterinburg Photoblog: Part 1

It’s time to re-visit or rather finish what I started during my time doing the Trans-Siberian journey. I never did get around to posting the rest of my entries.
I last left off at arriving into Yekaterinburg.

The train arrived into Yekaterinburg really early in the morning. From memory around 5am or 6am.

From Yekaterinburg

I would spend the entire day here, with a train booked out that evening at around 9pm or 11pm. I figured I could get in a full day of sightseeing without having to spend a night on accommodation there. Yekaterinburg is a stop worthy of an overnight stay though. First thing first, was to find a shower facility inside the station. Along the Trans-Siberian railway stops, quite a few of the major stations are supposed to have shower facilities. I was keen to try one out and experience it. It’s an experience you’ll probably want to skip.

Here was the awkward looking shower cubicle:

I had my backpack with me and it was a rather small space trying to shower and change, and not get everything all wet.
Shower done. Feeling fresh. Had to spend the whole day on the move since I had no accommodation. Next was to store my backpack for the day in the station luggage holding area which I found in the basement.

Dumped my luggage here (and no that is not my suitcase!):

From Yekaterinburg

And then set off for the day, exploring Yekaterinburg. And it was still not even 7am yet.

One of the things that really struck me about Russia was the amount of space, Wide. Vast. Amounts of it. Everything was so wide and big. Such a contrast to Japan where everything is small, compact and compressed.

I loved all the enormous buildings and architecture:

There is also a lot of interesting history in Yekaterinburg. It’s one of the bigger cities in Russia as well being quite the academic hub with a main university here and lots of history and culture.

One of the major tourist attractions here is the Church of All Saints otherwise known as the Church on Blood – so called for it’s bloody history where the last Emperor of Russia and other family members were all murdered here during the Russian Civil War.

Had managed to kill about 1-2 hours of the early morning so far.

I had two main reasons why I wanted to stop at Yekaterinburg. The next post will explain one of the reasons. Enjoy the suspense.

Takaragawa Onsen

A couple of weeks ago, I got a chance to go back to Takaragawa Onsen, one of the coolest onsens in Japan. I went there last summer for the first time after a hiking trip. Let me refresh your memory here.
We stopped en-route here after a snowboarding trip a couple of weeks ago.
This time got to experience the onsen in the winter. There’s nothing like an onsen after a day on the slopes.

Takaragawa Onsen is supposedly Japan’s largest rotemburo/outdoor natural hot springs.

From Takaragawa onsen – winter

It indeed boasts 4 or 5 outdoor onsen baths. All of them are outdoors (there are no indoor baths here) and they are set alongside a river down in a valley. And yes, this includes doing a nudey run across a bridge to reach the hot springs on the other side! Just don’t slip and fall!

The onsen is quite traditional, in that there are no washing areas. Unlike most onsens where you are required to clean and shower before enter the communal bath, here there are no such facilities. You throw a bucket of water over yourself to rinse before plunging into the bath.

And oh, the other thing I should probably mention is that it is a mixed gender hot spring. There is however one single-sex bath and that is for women only. They do however provide large bath towels which you are allowed to cover yourself in and then immerse yourself into the onsen. At all other onsens, bringing towels into the bath is a big no-no. Most women tend to cover up here although they can choose not to. Men on the otherhand opt to go a la naturale here. Although some men will cover up in towels. But don’t expect them to. But given the freezing conditions, they would have been wise to 😉
The place itself is a little bizarre, requiring you to walk through a tunnel resembling a garden shed of dubious looking weapons and artefacts?

Snowpocalypse

Tokyo had some unprecedented snowfall yesterday. Ended up getting stranded and didn’t get home until 6am this morning. What a long cold night it was.

It snowed all day in Tokyo yesterday. Some workplaces declared snow day. All we got was a 5pm earlymark.
When I left the office a little before 6pm, here is what it looked like outside my office building:

From Snowpocalypse

It wasn’t too bad. Subways were running (although a few train lines were down).
I headed to Shinjuku where we boarding a bus bound for Hakuba for a weekend of snowboarding.
Our bus left Shinjuku at 7:30pm and we hit the road. It took us an hour just to get out of the city and onto the highway.
We then spent 5 hours on the bus only to travel 50km and we were technically still in Tokyo. Traffic had been diverted off the highways as the highways shut down due to the snow. We just crawled along.

At about 12:30am the decision was made to head back home to Tokyo. By this time we were outside Takaosan train station. There was no way we were going to reach our destination. Snow trip officially cancelled.

Stopped in the middle of the road, where we walked to the nearby train station to use the toilets:

From Snowpocalypse

Here are some pics in the middle of the night at the pit stop:

We made it back to Tokyo where the bus dropped us off in Shinjuku. It was now 3:30am and we were stranded in Shinjuku as no public transport was running. They close during the night. Not a single taxi was available either. We tried to hail over a dozen taxis. They were either all full or no one wanted to pick us up.

By this time, we were super tired, freezing cold and wet. Ugh. Sooo cold.

These were the conditions trying to cross the roads in Shinjuku:

From Snowpocalypse
From Snowpocalypse

With no way to get home, my friend and I camped out a ramen shop where we ate a bowl of ramen at 4am. Even the 24 hour Maccas was closed! They had decided to close at 4am and were only doing takeaway to stop people from camping out inside.

From Snowpocalypse

Cars struggling in the snow in Shinjuku:

I finally got home at 6am this morning, once the trains were up and running again at 5am. Had a long hot shower to thaw out, and crawled into bed with my hot water bottle.

There was so much snow for this weekend, but ironically no one could get out to the slopes to enjoy it. All the highways have been shut. Quite the adventurous weekend so far, and it’s only Saturday morning!

Am now settled in for having a bludgey day indoors. It’s freezing though and super slushy outside. although it has stopped snowing.

Here was the view from my balcony this morning:

Life is like a box of…

On this Valentine’s Day, I have to confess I have FEELINGS for you.
No, literally, I HAVE Feelings for you.
This box of chocolates is actually called “Feelings”. (Ah, bless Japan).

From Feelings

I saw these for sale a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t resist taking a photo inside the shop. Sadly, could not bring myself to buy a box of these for myself.

In the words of Forrest Gump: “Life is like a box of…
Feelings?!”

Regardless of the day, anyday/everyday is an occasion to enjoy chocolates. But if you do, enjoy it with “feeling”.

Meanwhile, another snowy day in Tokyo.
Have a great weekend!

Powder Power – Houdaigi ski resort

From Houdaigi, Minakami

Another weekend snowboarding last weekend in Minakami (Gunma-ken) for a friend’s birthday weekend and the Snow Splash festival. Was an amazing weekend of powder – one of the best days on the slopes in a long time. Powda in the day and Louda in the night. But meanwhile, back in Tokyo, I missed out on one of the biggest snowstorms to hit Tokyo in the last 45 years. By the time I got back on Sunday night, there was still plenty of snow around Tokyo and my neighbourhood. Why couldn’t we have a snow day on a weekday so we don’t have to go to work.

Anyway, it didn’t make much of a difference to me, as we enjoyed a glorious weekend of powder snow. Went to Houdaigi ski resort which although small, has some really great runs. I thoroughly enjoyed the runs there and snowboarded for both days. Even got in an intermediate snowboarding lesson where we got to go off-piste a little bit and into the trees. Still gotta work on those narrow turns though. Was heaps of fun though. And if I was to ever learn how to ski, I would want to do it at this resort. They had some of the best beginner-friendly green runs I’ve ever seen.

The Minakami area is just as popular in the summer for activities like rafting, canyoning, hiking and bungee jumping. We passed through the Minakami Dam as well.

A Zen weekend at Koyasan

I fear the clock is ticking, so I’ve been working my way through my Japan bucketlist. Before Christmas last year, I took a weekend trip to Koyasan.
Koyasan is technically the start and end point of the 88 Temple Pilgrimage (Henro Trail) in Shikoku – another thing on my life bucketlist, but that requires 3 months of putting my life on hold (as well as savings) to walk 1200km.

Koyasan is in Wakayama prefecture, so at least I got to cross off my 36th (or is 37th?) prefecture in Japan. Only a few more to go now. It is the capital and headquarters of Shingon Buddhism, and a popular place to visit for a shukubo (an overnight stay at a temple). It is also home to the Kobo Daishi Mausoleum.

It is an interesting enough place to visit. I went in the middle of winter, where there were barely any crowds. It’s normally quite the tourist attraction. I took an overnight bus from Tokyo to Osaka on a Friday night, and arrived in Osaka in the morning. From Osaka, I made my way by train to Gokurakubashi station. From there, the only way up is by cable car up the mountain about 1000m above sea level.

Train bound for Koyasan:

From Koyasan

And then the cable car.

From Koyasan

I think I nearly took every kind of automotive/vehicle to get here:
A bus, a train, a cable car, and then another bus.

At the top of the cable car, you’ll reach the bus stop which gives you access to Koyasan. Apparently, it is forbidden to walk from the bus terminal into the main town centre. Plenty of buses await:

From Koyasan

This particularly weekend happened to be super snowy and freezing cold. I spent much of the time being very cold.

Koyasan is a small town atop of a mountain. It has a population of about 4000 people, presumably most of whom are monks, given that there are over 100 temples found here.

Entrance into Koyasan:

From Koyasan

Koyasan and Wakayama Prefecture both ticked off the bucketlist. Here’s the proof:

From Koyasan

The main attraction here is the Kobo Daishi Mausoleum, which is a 2km walk through the sacred burial ground of Okunoin where you’ll find over 200,000 monuments in a forest of cedar trees:

From Koyasan

There are lots of cedar trees. According to this sign, about 1300 of ’em. You could say that’s a treemendous amount!

From Koyasan

It was a pleasant, albeit very cold, stroll through the graveyard grounds. There was barely anyone around. Not a soul in sight. It was very peaceful.

So you get the drift. You walk about 2km along the well-marked trail until you reach the end where the main temple is.

Note: This is the NOT the main temple. This is the rest area where one can thaw out.

For those that don’t want to walk the 2km in freezing snowing conditions through the Okunoin trail, you can actually drive/get a bus straight to the Mausoleum entrance.

I walked some more around the precincts:

From this end, I could have walked all the way back from whence I came, but opted to get the bus back instead into the main town. I bought a pair of snow boots and chucked out the pair I was wearing. I was not prepared for such snowy conditions. Then I did some more sightseeing. There are plenty of different temples to see here.

This is the main Daimon Gate:

Koyasan was/is a famous pilgrimage trail. There are about 7 roads that lead into Koyasan, but back in the day, women were forbidden to enter this area.

From Koyasan

At around 3pm I decided to check into my lodgings – a shukubo – a temple lodge. I needed to thaw out a bit. I was soo cold. Also having taken the overnight bus, I was kind of in need of a bit of relaxing and chilling out of a different kind.

The temple lodging I stayed at was big. It’s one of the more popular places to stay at – it has a nice little onsen inside and a small Japanese garden:

From Koyasan

Inside the temple lodge, it was not much warmer. This was the indoor temperature:

From Koyasan

Thankfully, my room though was nice and warm once I cranked up the heating. That was more like it. I thawed out briefly, but heading out again for some more sightseeing before everything shut at 5pm. The town of Koyasan is quite small. Everything is in walking distance…the snow however made getting it around a lot more difficult and unpleasant.

For the rest of the day I took more photos as I walked around through more temple grounds, gardens and parks having a very zen old time.

Later, back at the temple lodge I had a nice lovely warming onsen to defrost my body. Even had the onsen to myself as very few people were staying there.

Given that I was staying at a shukubo (temple), the meals served here are all vegetarian – a cuisine known as shojin-ryori (a Buddhist kaiseki vegetarian meal). There was no meat and no fish. There was still plenty of food though. It was quite the spread. And it’s served in your room.

There was vegetable tempura, a soymilk broth nabe, soup, various vegetables and pickles etc, and a big portion of rice to fill you up.

At a lot of these temple lodgings, you can also partake in the early morning meditation service, but I don’t think it was on when I was there. It seemed like a lot of the monks were away on holidays (probably somewhere warm).

The lodging had a nice small Japanese garden:

Back down on regular ground level, the weather was somewhat warmer and less white:

A day and a half (2 days max) was sufficient to see the sights at Koyasan. Probably could have saw a bit more but snow hampered the getting around a bit, even though it was all walkable, the area is serviced by local buses from one temple to another. I also wanted to get back to Osaka to do an afternoon tea there.
Koyasan is a good overnight trip if you happen to be sightseeing in the Kyoto/Osaka area. But yeah, maybe don’t go in the middle of winter.
And I stayed here.

Better beleave it: Tea-Leaf reading with your High Tea

Here is afternoon tea number 4 out of 5 during my 7-day stay in Sydney last year.
This particular venue has on been on my Sydney high tea bucketlist for a very long time. It’s only offered on weekends and the ‘piece de resistance’ here is the tea-leaf reading. I finally got to go there.

From Langham afternoon tea

So on a Sunday afternoon, had a nice mother-daughter high tea at the Langham Hotel, Sydney (formerly the Observatory Hotel). The ‘Mystic Tiffin Afternoon Tea’ includes a tea leaf reading by (you guessed it) a tea leaf reader, as well as your standard 3-tier afternoon tea with a glass of bubbly.

I’ve never had my tea leaves read, but it was interesting enough, if taken with a grain of salt. And you know, I’m a girl, and us girls love this nonsense like horoscopes and tarots etc.
Basically, they brew a pot of tea using big tip leaves. Oolong tea and the like, work best, and then they pour some tea into a teacup, enough for you to drink a few mouthfuls. They then swish the leaves around in the cup and the leaves will stick to the bottom and side of the cup making different shapes and formations from which they “read” about you/your life/future etc. Basically, they interpret these shapes as different symbols and meanings. Yes, it’s a load of hogwash. But I like to indulge in this kind of fortune-telling stuff every now and then. I find interesting it to hear other people’s (ie strangers) perceptions of you. Of course, not a lot of it is true. And a lot of what is said can be quite generic and can generally be shaped/moulded into your life (as well as anyone else’s for that matter).

I recall being told that I’d find love (after having already told me that she thought I was already married!), have kids and all that jazz. At the rate I’m going, I do not foresee any of these things happening (not anytime soon, if at all). She did say my outlook/future was positive and she saw good things (so nothing too worrying). But ultimately, that rests on me. My life is is what I make of it and you can be damn sure that I’m going to do my darnedest to have an awesome life. I also recall the number 2 (concept of “double/couple/twin”) being of significance. Hmmm, not sure what to make of that. Although, last year I did get a double-yolk egg. I love getting double-yolk eggs. There’s something very auspicious about that.

Anyway, it was fun to do a tea leaf reading because I like that sort of thing.

Onto more important things….such as food.

Afternoon tea takes place at the Globe Bar/Lounge inside the hotel.

A high tea with a tea-leaf reading, may not be your cup of tea, but beleave it or not, I thought it was fun and whimsical (in a good way).

BRB: Gone Fishing

I read this headline a couple of weeks ago:
“Mass oyster deaths leave Port Stephens industry and scientists shell-shocked”, to which I posted on Facebook (future generations, will one day ask “What is Facebook?”) with the comment: “I wonder how many mussels were pulled coming up with this headline?” This in turn, sparked a pun saga of monumental proportions. (I could have said the word “EPIC” then, but I thought I’d be pretentious instead).

I love a good pun. Hell, it doesn’t even have to be a good pun. I just love a pun. But I do wonder about the state of journalism reporting when puns are used in news headlines. I always think it’s a little in bad taste.

If you love a pun or dozen…then read on.

[This is all true and real. It will forever live on my Facebook Wall. If you don’t believe me, friend me.
I have painstakingly cropped out/redacted photos and names. Any resemblance to any living person (or dead) is purely coincidental.]

50 shades of Autumn: Oze trail

A long overdue photo post from last Autumn.
Finally got around to walking the Oze mashlands trail. Had always wanted to do this, since living in Fukushima back on my JET days.

It’s a nice easy leisurely walk on wooden platforms around the Oze national park marshlands (when you’re lucky enough to not be led around by the group guide at a whip-cracking pace).

Am getting lazy with the writing, so enjoy the photo overload.
