My trip report 1 -Gifu-

I had three days off in a row last weekend and traveled to Gifu prefecture.
It was my first trip alone:)
Gifu prefecture is just center of Japan,it takes 5 and half hours to places I want to go by bus from Tokyo.

The reason I choose bus was because I didn't have much of money and it almost the same time to use fast train(Shin-kan-sen) as a bus.

1st day,I was supposed to get a bus I booked to Gifu at 6 am at Shinjuku station.
But I missed the bus because I got off wrong subway station and lost a way.
That was my biggest mistake in this trip.
Shinjuku is the most crowded city in Tokyo.
There are too many people and high buildings,all of them always make me confused.
I got off a station with name of "West Shinjuku station".Actually the station I had to get off was "Shinjuku station" and then go to west exit of the station.
I walked between these areas and lost my way..
The town is very fun at night though,it's incredibly messy area.
A lot of garbage were everywhere and big black crows were flying above my head...
Some of them were eating garbage,even there were few dead bieds by them....
I was thinking to give up this trip and go to Korean sauna near here.

Finally,the time was already 7:30 I could arrived a bus center.
I could book next bus leaving at 9:00XD

However a massive traffic jam already started.
It takes 5 and half hour usually though,I was in a bus for 8 hours.
Fourtunately,that was a girl next me.I was glad.But I'm not a pervert.

Sorry this artcle is long and I'm too excited even though the trip isn't still start.
If you don't have things to do,please read next one.(I'll update soon....)
I promise to show you beautiful pictures.

Thank you for reading:))
See you soon//
