INTRO
Long time lurker here and I have enjoyed reading all the trip reports posted on this forum, so I thought I'd share mine. I didn't take photos with a write up in mind. Sorry if I don't include any detailed flight images, such as menus, bathroom, amenities…etc.

ITINERARY
SFO-HND | KIX-TPE | TSA-HND-SFO

We spent about 2 weeks in Japan and 1 week in Taiwan.

SFO-HND

JAL 777 SFO-HND First Class

















The food was great and the seat is very comfortable, but what stood out the most is their service and attention to detail. The flight attendants would come around every 10-15 min to make sure you have everything you need, and not in an intrusive way. Trash and dirty dishes were almost picked up immediately.

JAPAN

Tsukiji Fish Market


Shinjuku


Ice creme vending machine!


Shibuya Crossing


Hakone


Kusatsu


Asakusa Shrine


Food from the department store basement


Super hard UFO catchers


Giant octopus sign in Dotonbori


Nara


Fushimi Inari Shrine


The famous Ichiran Ramen


KIX-TPE

JAL 737 KIX-TEP Business Class

JAL lounge at KIX




Noooo, I just realized I didn’t take any photos for this leg.

Taiwan

Clean and reasonably priced business hotel near TSA


Taipei 101


Night market


Stinky tofu


The famous beef noodle!


The Taiwan photos I took are mostly food, we didn’t go to touristy places since I lived there for 6 years. We spent time eating with family, gaining 5 pounds in just one week. Definitely check out Taiwan if you are into food!

TSA-HND-SFO

JAL 98/2 TSA-HND-SFO Business Class

TSA-HND




6 hour layover in the HND JAL Business Class lounge










Amazing curry


Very convenient locker room. We were able to check out the terminal without having to drag our luggages around.


We have been traveling for almost a day at this point, and it was very nice to be able to take a shower before traveling for another 9 hours.










Hope you guys enjoyed reading this!
