A Quick Stroll around Yokohama

I flew to Japan twice in April of last year. My first trip was to keep my friends company on a weeklong trip around Tokyo, and the next one was me taking side trips near Tokyo plus a day in Hokkaido.

Yokohama was my first stop. I wanted to watch ONE OK ROCK play at Yokohama Stadium. I’ve always wanted to explore Yokohama, too, so for my third time in Tokyo I decided to finally head there. Sadly, I wasn’t able to buy a concert ticket so to spare myself further heartache I just avoided Yokohama stadium.

I loved Yokohama’s vibe; it’s cosmopolitan yet laidback and it’s artsy too. It’s a great trip to take when you’re in the Tokyo area since it’s just 1 – 2 hours away, depending on where in Tokyo you’re staying. Without further ado, here’s a bit of Yokohama in pictures:

WPC: Place in the World

Quitinday Hills is an upcoming attraction in Albay (or maybe it’s already popular). It boasts a magnificent view of the Mayon Volcano on a clear day, but the hills are a sight to behold on their own.

This stop is one of my favorite moments of last year. I still remember how it would drizzle for a few moments then the sun would shine again, and then drizzle again. I remember how clean the breeze was and how light and unburdened I felt. I remember how proud the locals were of their place and how kind the tricycle driver who brought me to the foot of the hills was.

There are so many beautiful places in the world, but this experience reminds me to come back to the Philippines and visit more.
