Train Museum

Trains played an important part in the development process of Japan and they still are. Therefore, my friends and I decided to travel a good hour from Mitaka to visit this museum.

Japan & Wifi

I think i mentioned this in every single one of my posts just because I definitely want to make sure that it is known that Japan doesn't have wifi !! However, there are some few places that does offer wifi such as your school campus :D However, at ICU it was made mainly for iphone rather than android so in the end I couldn't really get internet on my phone.

Conquering the JR
