Pengalaman Menginap di Hotel Kapsul Centurion Hotel Cabin & Spa, Kyoto


Salah satu cita-cita saya dan mr.husband adalah mencoba menginap di hotel kapsul di Jepang, demi kekinian dan juga karena memang penasaran. Sebelumnya mr.husband sudah pernah menginap di The Pod Hostel Singapore, jadi sudah sedikit merasakan. Ohya, udah baca satu-satunya posting di tesyasblog yang ditulis mr.husband? Klik link ini, mengenai review The Pod. Duh, maaf OOT deh jadinya:D

Seperti biasa, tugas mencari penginapan selalu diserahkan kepada saya. Jadi mr.husband hanya geleng-geleng kepala ketika dua minggu sebelum keberangkatan saya katakan, "Kita pindah hostel yuk, ini lebih murah (tetep ya money is mrs.wife's consideration) dan lokasinya di Gion".

Sebelumnya, kami sudah memesan free cancelation twin room di Piece Hostel Kyoto Station melalui situs booking. Kami sudah naksir Piece Hostel sejak Meidiana dari geretkoper menulis review Piece Hostel Sanjo. Jadi rasanya bahagia banget berhasil memesan di salah satu hostel paling laris di Kyoto. Eh, udah begitu kami cancel! Semoga saja suatu saat nanti kami akhirnya bisa menginap di Piece Hostel. Aamiin.

Menginap di hotel kapsul Centurion Hotel Cabin & Spa memang lebih sesuai untuk itinerary kami yang akan sering menggunakan kereta dari daerah Gion. Dan ternyata lokasinya tepat di jantung pertokoan Gion, tiba-tiba aja gitu ada hostel padahal di kiri dan kanan adalah toko dan restoran Sukiya. We were surprised! Tentunya kejutan yang menyenangkan:)

Located at the heart of Kyoto, perfect!

Halal Ramen in Kyoto: Gion Naritaya


Even in Indonesia, one of the biggest country with moslem population in the world, I rarely find halal ramen (I mean, the certified one). So before going to Kyoto, I tried my luck and type in goole: "Halal Ramen in Kyoto". Google leads me to a place called Gion Naritaya.

I search how to get to Gion Naritaya from our hostel Centurion Cabin & Spa, as we planned to drop off our backpack at the hostel before exploring Kyoto. And it's a 20 minutes walking distance, so we put it as a late lunch plan, after snacking at the Nishiki Market.

In reality, we had to walk quiet far, but with a cold winter weather and the beautiful sight of Gion, I wouldn't mind at all. We stopped here and there and after a 30 minutes walking from Nishiki Market, we arrived at Gion Naritaya.

Our Coffee Trip in Japan: From Kyoto, Arashiyama to Osaka


We have been following instagram accounts of some of the coffeeshop in Kyoto and Osaka, so we put visit to the coffeeshop in our itinerary as well. But along the journey, we found very interesting coffeeshops that we could not resist to try.

The crisp weather in Kyoto and Osaka fit best our coffee trip in Japan. We walked a lot, so having a hot cup of coffee was what we needed to warm up our body.  

Started from Kyoto where we planned to visit Kurasu, to Osaka where we planned to visit Mel Coffee Roasters.


Kurasu Kyoto

Located few minutes away from Kyoto Station, Kurasu is the first coffeshop we visited. It is a small but lovely coffeeshop, near APA Hotel Kyoto Ekimae.

The crowd at Kurasu


We met the two baristas Ayaka-san and Misako-san who made me a delicious Cafe Latte. We introduced ourselves and told them that we knew Kurasu from instagram. "Aaah ya, many Indonesian used instagram!" Misako-san told me. Yes, so true:D
