Photo Diary/Travel Diary: One day trip to Sannomiya, Kobe. Took two hours train from Ono City in the morning. As everyone knows Kobe is very famous for their beef but sadly this will be a No Kobe Beef post! As yours truly doesn't take any beef. Lol. 

First we paid a visit to the famous Ikuta Shrine once we touched down in Kobe then we had our lunch at Totenkaku, Kitano Street. That would be my first Chinese Cuisine i had in Japan, also one of the famous Beijing Cuisine in Kobe(also my one and only Chinese meal for my entire Japan trip. lol). Followed up with some sight seeing around Kitano Street. It is located on the mountainside which is a popular place for tourists to visit those unique western-style houses. After that, we went to shopping in Kobe City. Bought Jill Stuart and Agnes B goodies and some souvenir as well. Madly in love with these two brands as they weren't available in Malaysia back then. Last stop will be a quick afternoon tea at Goncharoff Tea House before we headed back to Ono.

Anyway this will be a quick but long post with massive photos taken last Winter! *Picture Overload Alert* Till then, pictures will do the talking, enjoy! (ノ≧∀≦)ノ

My favorite Cosmetic, Jill Stuart <3

This popular cosmetic in japan has a strict regulation while consulting and purchasing. Customers have to queue up with numbers while waiting for their turn! Can see how japanese loves this brand!

Photobucket
Not my favorite brand of all but still a picture with Louis Vuitton, Couldn't find my Balenciaga.
