Hostel 64 Osaka is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Although their prices are little pricey compare with other hostels (maybe 400yen more than the average night), the interior is chic, creative and maximized.
Let me continue telling our wandering stories we had in Japan last year.
Make sure, though, to also watch the travel video here. Just spare me for some mistakes I have made. Hihi.

Japan is amazing in a new way!
Nearly all subway stations in Tokyo have braille board beside every ticket machine. Braille is a reading and writing system used by the blind and visually impaired people. One can know how much would a ticket cost from point A to point B and navigate even the ticket machine to know where exactly the coins should be dropped in or bills should be inserted. Aside from being awesome for having also an option to use English language in the ticket machines for able people and braille for blind people, these ticket machines can also read out the words for deaf people. Handicap people can also navigate themselves in and out of the stations by following the yellow rubber guide strips on the flooring throughout the subway network. Amazing and Awesome, right?

Happy Mothers Day!!!!
While my Facebook is feeding up with my friends’ messages and photos for their Moms, I suddenly realized that most of the time we travel only with our close friends. Just last week, my Facebook was full of my friends’ summer outing with their close friends or partner. Well, yeah, some traveled with their families. But we haven’t really traveled with our Mom alone to have a real bonding trip, right?
There is only one person I know from my friends who will travel soon with her Mom. And isn’t it sad on some level? I gave her my detailed Japan itinerary because I want them to have a good time. Her Mom should not bother anymore with the itinerary. My friend can do all the bookings and stuff. I mean, it’s about time that we take care of our Moms in ways that we know we can.
Itinerary was a mess!
We were not really sure how to go through the day but at least we knew where we would start. Ahahay!
