I had to buy my special priced bullet train tickets for my trip next weekend.
I went to the recent MATTA Fair at the Putra World Trade Centre and it was so packed
with thousands of holiday makers. My first visit to this fair was like 10 years ago
and it was at smaller scale then. This 2014's fair was expanded many folds
and made me speechless!
We both brought an aunt & her rich husband who tagged along to look see while
we purchased our train tickets. Tourists visiting Japan could only purchase
discounted fares outside of Japan and that's a bit strange to me.
We could always use our passports to prove our foreigner status to purchase them
inside Japan but they don't allow.
We had to wait for so long to get our tickets as we were the first customer
looking for train tickets to tour the regions of Kyushu Island while everyone else
aimed at the popular Osaka & Tokyo areas.
The whole travel fair was like a colourful carnival with so many freebies and mascots walking everywhere!
The crab on display was so huge and attractive but No Thanks!
The recent Fukushima spills really scared me and I better be safe than sorry.
We met up with my aunt & hubby later and they bought tickets for themselves for vacations.
They persuaded us to go along with them for ONE TRIP and we agreed.
HAVE FUN & GUESS BELOW!
