Double Date in Disneyland
Disneyland Tokyo is magical. It feels that way, to me. I was lucky enough to spend some hours day, one sunny, breezy day, with my partner, my best friend and her husband. You might think that I'm being silly when I said that I felt like a teenager, on a double date. It was exhilarating and fun.
My favorite ride is definitely Pirates of the Caribbean (we took it twice) and Pooh Honey Hunt! The one and only in the world. I could smell the honey around Pooh Honey Hunt. I cried a bit because it was a dream coming true. I first wanted to take this ride when I began writing Kintaholic. Circa 2006-2007. And four-five years later, it came true. Thank you Nyachan and Nonkun! 愛してる.
We went there using subway, and it was neat, once you know how the system works. If you know where you want to go, you can decide how much fare that you should pay by consulting the signboards above the machines. Buy the tickets in the machine, use it to enter the station (don't forget to take the ticket again, if you're not sure how, just take a look around and you'll know) and change trains when necessary. When you have arrived and put the ticket in a special machine, you don't need to take the ticket out again. Unless you buy special tickets that allow you to roam freely in Tokyo.
If you guys want to visit Disneyland in Japan, I advise you to spend at least two or three days to explore every niche. And I recommend Pirates of the Caribbean and Pooh Honey Hunt.
