On May 2016, I got a fantastic holiday. I and my friends visited Japan. I was so excited because I’d dreamed it since a long time ago. And I visited many great places too there.
On 5th May 2016, I went to Soekarno-Hatta International Airport then flew to Osaka. My airplane took off at about 10.30 p.m. We used Garuda Indonesia Airplane.
On the 2nd day, finally we arrived at Kansai International Airport, Osaka. After we went through the immigration and took our baggage, we went to Kyoto by bus. It took about 2 hours. After we arrived in Kyoto, we went to Kiyomizu-dera Temple. There were so many traders who were selling souvenirs or foods. And the temple was very amazing. After that, we went back to Osaka. After we arrived in Osaka, we went to Dotonbori, the famoust shopping centre in Osaka. And then we went to Rinkai Hotel. We stayed there only for one night.
On the 3rd day, in the morning after breakfast, we went to Kansai Airport. We’re going to fly to Kagoshima by Peach Airplane. After we arrived in Kagoshima, we went to Fukushima. In Fukushima, we were doing homestay program. My host parent was very kind. She thought Japanese language to me and my friend. The homestay was very traditional, like Nobita’s house in Doraemon films and it was very cozy. In the night, my host parent invited me to saw fireflies. The fireflies were shining so bright. After that, we were sleeping on the Japanese futon.

And then we walked around there while enjoying the beautiful scenery. After that, we made sushi with our host parent. Then, we went to Fukuoka by bus. It took 5 hours. And after we arrived there, we went to the hotel. We stayed at Vessel Hotel for 2 nights.
