Exploring: Disney Sea & Shibuya Crossing

Exploring-Tokyo-Disney-SeaWe were given a choice between Disneyland and Disney Sea before we left Manila, and without really giving it much thought, I chose Disney Sea in a heartbeat. I had no clue of its existence until my tour with Airlite Int’l Travel & Tours, and how Disney Sea Tokyo was the only Disney Sea anywhere in the world.

On the early morning of March 24, I woke to my alarm at 5:00. After snoozing every 5 minutes until 5:30, I peeled myself from the bed and prepared for our breakfast buffet at the hotel. I peeked out our hotel room’s window before heading downstairs and was greeted with a foggy view. The weather forecast said it would rain the whole day, with little to no chance of sun. That honestly sucked, my initial thought was, “Now all my photos will be gloomy.” but in the end, the photos turned out looking pretty good still. Big thanks to my travel buddy, David, for taking photos of me too!

Let me take you on a virtual tour of Disney Sea in photos. This isn’t even everything yet, you’ll definitely see more snippets of Disney Sea on my Japan vlog. Enjoy! :-)

Shibuya Crossing

After spending the entire day walking around Disney Sea, David and I decided to make our way to Shibuya Crossing. We relied on “trusty” google maps — the quotes are needed because we got lost several times due to Google Maps not working correctly, and then we got to the train station and had no idea where to go from there. My train navigation skills are only applicable in European countries. For once, I was stumped. David took it upon himself to ask a Japanese couple the way to Shibuya, even with their zero english speaking skills, they obliged and helped us out with purchasing the right tickets. We just needed to get on the right platform, and from there the train will have English versions for tourists.

Japan Shibuya (2 of 6)When we got off the Shibuya stop and left the train station, this is the sight that first greeted us. Crazy Shibuya crossing. It was amazing. If you find yourself in Tokyo, this is a definite must-see. When the lights turn red and pedestrians cross, it’s such spectacle. So much people going in every direction. It’s chaos, but a beautiful kind.

Japan Shibuya (6 of 6)We met up with my cousin’s girlfriend, Maps, who was staying at a hotel beside Shibuya. She had a great view of the area so we went up and down the elevator a few times just for fun. This was around 10:30PM already, and the crowds have gotten less and less.

Another special thanks to Airlite Int’l Travel & Tours for this wonderful opportunity to experience Tokyo Disney Sea. Stay tuned for the next Exploring Japan update where I actually get to experience snow!!! :-) For more information on visiting Japan and other countries, you may contact Airlite Int’l Travel & Tours here.

      It’s a definite must visit. The crowds just get so crazy though :( I dont understand how people manage to enjoy the entire park. Before going, I would suggest you do research on the best time of the year to go cause honestly the crowd was just crazy haha

    I love all the photos you just shared here, Camie. What camera did you use if I may ask?

    • Reply Camie Juan 31 May 2016 at 10:32 am

      Thanks!! The photos of me are mostly taken with David’s Fujifilm XT10 using his 35mm lens. And the rest of the photos I used my Fujifilm X-A2 using my kit lens :)

    I wonder if Disney Sea is just as big as Disneyland in Japan. But given that it’s the only one in the world, I would probably prioritize that over Disneyland as well! I’ve always wanted to do a photo in a busy city like you did! I’ve always thought you’ve been to New York, though. Hehe.

    • Reply Camie Juan 31 May 2016 at 10:32 am

      I’m actually not entirely sure but the fact that Disney Sea is the only one in the world is enough reason to choose it over Disneyland! HAHA

      I’ve never been to NYC… The only US territory I’ve been to was Guam. But that’s gonna change this year. I plan to go around November HEEHEE
