Today was a pretty fun day checking out the digital museum in Odaiba, although we had to check out of our rad hotel, Shinjuku Granbell Hotel, but after making it to Shibuya and checking into our hotel (although smaller than our recent hotel), there are hella places close by that make’s up for it lol. I would say it’s like a Waikiki of Japan but way bigger! We have a lot more shopping to do and a few more shooting to do as well, but it looks like the trip is coming to the dreadful end no one ever want’s to see (when they’re on a trip). Can’t wait to make these last few days count! I’ll get back to you guys tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!

Japan Day 6

sphoto, sphotohi, sphothawaii, japan, tokyo, disney, disney land, disneysea, disney seaToday was all about Tokyo Disneysea!  I didn’t bring my camera or my gear with me because I knew we were gonna go on rides and stand in lines most of the time so I prepared for all of that.  We used the girlfriend’s camera (canon g7x) because it’s smaller, more portable, and easier to run and gun for the day.  We were there from around 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.  Basically spent the whole day there until heading back to our hotel.

Sorry I been busy traveling around Japan and catching multiple trains and switching hotels that I haven’t had the time to edit and post for that past few days.  But I finally got around to getting to it finally.  I don’t really have much to say here but I did say a lot in the journal.

Japan Day 2

We spent a day (ok maybe a hand full of hours) in Kyoto today at Fushi Inari Taisha & Kinkakuji Temple and the rest of our day traveling via trains.  It was a long day that would make your feet hurt (literally) because of all the walking we did but that’s what traveling is all about right?  Exploring and seeing things/places you never see/experienced before and making the best of everything.  It was mainly sight seeing and “touristy” stuff, but it’s our first time here in Japan.  Why wouldn’t we do that?  You have to experience everything at least once while you got the chance to right?

Japan Day 1

sphoto, sphotohi ,sphotohawaii, hawaii, japan, travel, photography, aquarium, osaka, jellyfish, modelToday we went to Kaiyukan aquarium.  We started the day early at 6am to get ready for the day and headed out to the train station.  This was our first time riding a train and the experience here in Japan was nice!  This was a really fun time at an aquarium because this one even went as far as to bring the atmosphere to the people in the aquarium, to whatever animals they were portraying.  This was a detailed aquarium and a fun one.  Even being the age that I am, 27, and having to share the aquarium with elementary school kids, I have to say that even I enjoyed everything about it.  No complains what so ever!  Along side the aquarium, there was a giant ferris wheel that you could ride for a few more yen.  Of course we bought that ticket and they even had the FREE option to choose if we wanted a “normal” cabin or a “see-through” cabin which was basically made of glass.  Of course we opted for the see-through one only because I could get some shots out of it lol.  A video or multiple video’s will accompany this trip so keep a look out for that!  I’ll just be posting photo’s during the trip so I can have time to work on and put together the final video’s.  Stay tuned for tomorrow’s adventure!

Flight Out To Japan

Dear journal,

I haven’t spoken to you in a while!  This is the day we flew out to Japan.  I didn’t expect the day to be loooooooooooong (or at least I thought it was long lol) because the girlfriend explained that it would be a “short” 8 – 9 hour flight.  So I thought, “ok this is gonna be easy”, but NO!  To me it felt long but maybe that’s because we had a lay over in Tokyo lol.  Anyways it was worth it because this country is B, O, M, B, BOMB!  Everything is so organized here and everyone is respectful, everything’s so tech-savvy, and it’s just a chill vibe all over.  Even the food here doesn’t disappoint! One of my highlights of this night was my dinner because 711 is right down stairs from my hotel and I saw numerous videos on YouTube of people having feasts off of 711 food that they won’t serve anywhere else in the world (or at least I haven’t seen or experienced it yet)!  This night, I ended the night with editing, and having dinner from 711 which consisted of salted rice onigiri and chicken skewers.  They don’t joke around with their food here.  It’s 100% legit!  I was so satisfied with my dinner that I slept like a baby after.  All I know is that I can’t go to a 711 back in Hawaii and grab “dinner” and say I was satisfied with what I ate lol.

Beach Day!!!!

Had a beach day with the girlfriend and a few of the homies this past weekend.  Brought them back to the same beach @shaz_v and I did the last video together.  Last time the 2 of us went, we weren’t prepared because all I had in mind was to shoot a video at the time and boy did I regret it!  It was so hot that day that all I could think about was swimming, but all I brought were the clothes I was wearing and my camera.  This time we planned it out and brought a tent, drinks, food, and everything else anyone would bring to the beach to have a good time!  This took place on the North Shore of Oahu.  To be honest with you, I have no idea what the name of this beach is, but it isn’t as busy as most beaches here on the island and it stretched pretty far, so there literally was all the space in the world at this spot.  No more searching almost half the beach for a spot to kick it lol.  We stayed all the way til sunset, and I gotta say, this day was a good day.

Spontaneous Beach Day With The Girlfriend

For those who don’t already know, yes this is my gorgeous girlfriend, Shaz lol.  This was a spontaneous beach day, on a Sunday afternoon.  It was so hot that day and we were both off (we rarely get the same days off), so it was her idea to head to the beach and I figured might as well make use of the day and shoot a video and photos too to see where I’m stand ever since I jumped into the video side of things!  We went down to some beach  at the North Shore.  I don’t know the name of it but it was one of those beaches that was literally on the side of the highway (if you ever been down that side, and I know many locals have, but if you’re not from here, there are many beaches you can visit down at the north shore).  Before that we took a stroll through Haleiwa (a MUST SEE place if you’re ever visiting Oahu) to play tourist a bit and grab some food for the beach.  Let me tell you though, because this was a spontaneous trip, we were definitely NOT prepared! lol.  We arrived there around 430ish and the sun hadn’t gone down enough to where the beach is bearable, so we regretted not bringing enough drinks and a tent lol.  So we set up our beach blanket on the sand and just endured the sun and enjoyed our Sunday.  I have to admit though, it was relaxing minus the hot sun and sweating so much (because I didn’t bring swim shorts on the count that I wasn’t planning to swim but boy did I regret that), plus I shot whatever I could before I was over everything because of the heat lol.  Anyways, if you wanna see the rest of the photos and the video that was taken that day, click on the photo above!

My Cousin, Kai’s, Graduation Party

Here’s a short video of my progress ever since I jumped into the video world a couple months back. Congrats to my cousin for graduating HS in California and making the move to attend college here in Oahu at UH! A little gathering with family and friends at Pagoda’s floating restaurant celebrating this milestone for him.
