Totally forgot the part of this ‪#‎MeijiJinguShrine‬ but if I remember correctly, this is an important part of the shrine that’s why there’s an ‪#‎omamori‬ (talismans) around it | ‪#‎MeijiShrine‬ ‪#‎MejiShrine‬ ‪#‎ShintoShrine‬ ‪#‎YourShot‬ ‪#‎NatGeo‬ ‪#‎NatGeoTravel‬ ‪#‎HETHLERized‬ ‪#‎WhenInJapan‬ ‪#‎JapanHangover‬ ‪#‎Japan‬ ‪#‎Travel‬ ‪#‎MeTime‬ ‪#‎ILoveJapan‬ ‪#‎IgersPH‬ ‪#‎IgersManila‬ ‪#‎IgersPasig‬ ‪#‎Instagood‬ ‪#‎TravelGram‬ ‪#‎TravelDiaries‬

This is the prayer wall of the ‪#‎MeijiJinguShrine‬. Two things: first, there are papers with envelopes available that you could use for free for your wishes and prayers, you can then drop them at the box and put some coins with it 😊 Second, there are ‪#‎votive‬ (wood tablet) that you can buy at the shop for ¥500.

Earlier, I noted that just seeing these trees it made me feel so calm, peace and such serenity. So while browsing my shots, apparently there’s a kanji note behind the tree which reads: These camphor trees, planted in 1920 at the time of the enshrinement of ‪#‎MeijiJinguShrine‬, have grown under the protection of the deities to become huge and vivid, while considered as sacred. Well known as “‪#‎Meoto‬ ‪#‎Kusu‬” or “‪#‎Husband‬ and ‪#‎Wife‬”, the couple trees became the symbol of happy marriage and harmonious life of the family. This is meant for couples which makes sense because this shrine is after all, for ‪#‎EmperorMeiji‬ and his wife ‪#‎EmpressShoken‬. Believe me, I haven’t married yet but there’s really something special with these trees when you see it 👫❤️🙏 | ‪#‎MeijiShrine‬ ‪#‎MejiShrine‬ ‪#‎ShintoShrine‬ ‪#‎YourShot‬ ‪#‎NatGeo‬ ‪#‎NatGeoTravel‬ ‪#‎HETHLERized‬ ‪#‎WhenInJapan‬ ‪#‎JapanHangover‬ ‪#‎Japan‬ ‪#‎Travel‬ ‪#‎MeTime‬ ‪#‎ILoveJapan‬ ‪#‎IgersPH‬ ‪#‎IgersManila‬ ‪#‎IgersPasig‬ ‪#‎Instagood‬ ‪#‎TravelGram‬ ‪#‎TravelDiaries‬

Look closer! Hahaha! You won’t notice that there’s actually a big tarpaulin hanging around the ‪#‎MeijiJinguShrine‬ that fills the void of the area of the shrine that’s being renovated haha *slow clap* 😂 | ‪#‎MeijiShrine‬ ‪#‎MejiShrine‬ ‪#‎ShintoShrine‬ ‪#‎YourShot‬ ‪#‎NatGeo‬ ‪#‎NatGeoTravel‬ ‪#‎HETHLERized‬ ‪#‎WhenInJapan‬ ‪#‎JapanHangover‬ ‪#‎Japan‬ ‪#‎Travel‬ ‪#‎MeTime‬ ‪#‎ILoveJapan‬ ‪#‎IgersPH‬ ‪#‎IgersManila‬ ‪#‎IgersPasig‬ ‪#‎Instagood‬ ‪#‎TravelGram‬ ‪#‎TravelDiaries‬

Visitors aren’t allowed to take photos within the shrine itself but that’s okay, having taken your photos with the ‪#‎MeijiJinguShrine‬ as the backdrop wasn’t a bad thing at all 😊 | ‪#‎MeijiShrine‬ ‪#‎MejiShrine‬ ‪#‎ShintoShrine‬ ‪#‎YourShot‬ ‪#‎NatGeo‬ ‪#‎NatGeoTravel‬ ‪#‎HETHLERized‬ ‪#‎WhenInJapan‬ ‪#‎JapanHangover‬ ‪#‎Japan‬ ‪#‎Travel‬ ‪#‎MeTime‬ ‪#‎ILoveJapan‬ ‪#‎IgersPH‬ ‪#‎IgersManila‬ ‪#‎IgersPasig‬ ‪#‎Instagood‬ ‪#‎TravelGram‬

So this is the ‪#‎MeijiJinguShrine‬, dedicated to the deified spirits of ‪#‎EmperorMeiji‬ and his wife ‪#‎EmpressShoken‬. This is ‪#‎Tokyo‬’s most famous ‪#‎ShintoShrine‬, and unlike other shrines, this doesn’t sports a flashy color. The shrine, about 200-acre park is covered by the evergreen forest that consists of 120,00O trees of 365 different specifies. The first ‪#‎ToriGate‬ that stands 12m tall at the main entrance leading to the shrine is made of 1500yr old cypress. You bow once at the ‪#‎torii‬ gates upon entering; rinse hands and mouth at the ‪#‎temizuya‬; and at the main shrine buildings, put some coins into the offertory box, bow twice, clap your hands twice, *say your prayers/wishes*, bow once again. They won’t allow you to take photos or videos from the inside of the shrine, meaning *when there is a roof above your head* so you simply need to step a little bit further from the roof of the shrine then you can have your ‪#‎selfies‬ 😊 Upon leaving the shrine, bow again once, at the #ToriGate 🙏 | ‪#‎MeijiShrine‬ ‪#‎MejiShrine‬ #ShintoShrine ‪#‎YourShot‬ ‪#‎NatGeo‬ ‪#‎NatGeoTravel‬ ‪#‎HETHLERized‬ ‪#‎WhenInJapan‬ ‪#‎JapanHangover‬ ‪#‎Japan‬ ‪#‎Travel‬ ‪#‎MeTime‬ ‪#‎ILoveJapan‬ ‪#‎IgersPH‬ ‪#‎IgersManila‬ ‪#‎IgersPasig‬ ‪#‎Instagood‬ ‪#‎TravelGram‬ ‪#‎TravelDiaries‬

IMG_6112

At the entrance of the ‪#‎MeijiJinguShrine‬ there’s a shop where you can buy talismans, lucky charms, votive and other items related to ‪#‎Shinto‬ religion. ‪#‎Omikuji‬ fortune is very popular in Japan, there’s even a vendo machine for that. O-mikuji are poems composed by either ‪#‎EmperorMeiji‬ or ‪#‎EmpressShoken‬. If you want to check your fortune you can pick one at the shop for ¥100. The poem is in ‪#‎Nihongo‬, and mine reads as (verbatim): “You can draw some profit from everything people say, even from those things that t first sound offensive. But for this, constant self-examination is required.” — Empress Shōken.

IMG_6113

But this ‪#‎Omikuji‬ that I got for another ¥100 at the main ‪#‎MeijiJinguShrine‬ when I’m about to leave the shrine was so on-point! Couldn’t agree more! 🙏 It reads: “If, upon consulting your conscience, you find you have nothing to be ashamed of, then you have no reason to be moved by gossip. Stick to your ‪#‎convictions‬”. – Empress Shōken 😊😊😊 | ‪#‎MeijiShrine‬ ‪#‎MejiShrine‬ ‪#‎ShintoShrine‬ ‪#‎YourShot‬ ‪#‎NatGeo‬ ‪#‎NatGeoTravel‬ ‪#‎HETHLERized‬ ‪#‎WhenInJapan‬ ‪#‎JapanHangover‬ ‪#‎Japan‬ ‪#‎Travel‬ ‪#‎MeTime‬ ‪#‎ILoveJapan‬ ‪#‎IgersPH‬ ‪#‎IgersManila‬ ‪#‎IgersPasig‬ ‪#‎Instagood‬ ‪#‎TravelGram‬ ‪#‎TravelDiaries‬

Obviously the highlight of my ‪#‎Japan‬ ‪#‎vacation‬, every ‪#‎Gundam‬ fan visiting Japan should visit ‪#‎DiverCity‬ ‪#‎Odaiba‬ for the life-size RX-78-2 Gundam. At night (7:30, 8:30, 9:30PM) its head can move and emits lights or mist from 50 points on its body. Last year, the ‪#‎GundamGlobalChallenge‬ shocked everyone by announcing that they are planning to make the life-size RX-78-2 Gundam — mobilize! (no joke!!!). They just finished the second phase for the engineering/submission but if everything falls into place, we might see the Gundam walk around the Odaiba Island by 2019 just in time for the Gundam franchise’s 40th anniversary! | ‪#‎WalkGundamWalk‬ ‪#‎GundamMobilize‬ ‪#‎ProjectGundamMobilize‬ ‪#‎RX782Gundam‬ #Gundam ‪#‎MobileSuitGundam‬ ‪#‎Gundam1979‬ ‪#‎LifesizeRX782Gundam‬ ‪#‎IconicGundam‬ ‪#‎OriginalGundam‬ ‪#‎AmuroRay‬ ‪#‎GundamFront‬ ‪#‎GundamFrontTokyo‬ ‪#‎DiverCityTokyo‬ ‪#‎DiverCityTokyoPlaza‬ ‪#‎YourShot‬ ‪#‎NatGeo‬ ‪#‎NatGeoTravel‬ ‪#‎HETHLERized‬ ‪#‎WhenInJapan‬ ‪#‎JapanHangover‬ #Japan ‪#‎Travel‬ ‪#‎MeTime‬ #ILoveJapan #IgersPH #IgersManila #IgersPasig #Instagood #TravelGram #TravelDiaries

Undeniably one of the most visited tourist spots here in ‪#‎Tokyo‬, the ‪#‎TokyoSkyTreeTower‬ is the primary television and radio broadcast site in ‪#‎Kanto‬ region.

Japan 2016: Day 2 (Celebrating my 33rd Birthday at the Yasukuni Shrine)

#Konbanwa!!! Hi guys, I wanna thank you all for your well-wishes on my 33rd #birthday! Salamat sa effort at oras. This year has been extremely challenging for me professionally but things happen for a reason. Important thing is how we persevered and weathered the storm, indeed, it was a humbling experience and I’ve moved on. Life is too short and I choose to be #happy! Salamat sa mga kumapit at nakapitan ko especially this past few months, mahal na mahal ko kayo! On a less dramatic note, this year’s #lanternfestival didn’t happen because of the weather but nevertheless it’s all worth it traveling to The Yasukuni Shrine! It was an overwhelming experience, pagod maglakad but ang ganda nung shrine! Walang paper lanterns that flies but okay na itong mga bamboo lanterns! #Japan will always have a special place in my heart! 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵 Again, salamat sa #birthday greetings ninyo, will go to bed (later) with a big #smile on my face! Dōmo arigatō gozaimasu! 🙏🙏🙏 | #HETHLERized #Japan #WhenInJapan #Travel #Vacation #Shrine #YasukiniShrine #Temple #JapaneseTemple #JapanseShrine #TravelDiaries #MeTime #Instagood #VSCO #VSCOcam #VSCOphoto #Igers #IgersPH #IgersManila #Travelgram | IG: http://www.instagram.com/hethler

Back at the hotel, this is their ‪#‎raunji‬ (lounge) – ‪#‎Japanese‬ style, there are lots of ‪#‎mangas‬ at the shelf as well as guide map in ‪#‎Japan‬ both in English and Japanese; a big map at the wall with top tourist destinations guided by their subway stations; and estimated distance at the hotel. There’s also free coffee, tea, biscuits and well, a lovely host, Chadapon! 😊 | ‪#‎HETHLERized‬ ‪#‎WhenInJapan‬ ‪#‎JapanHangover‬ #Japan ‪#‎Travel‬ ‪#‎MeTime‬ ‪#‎ILoveJapan‬ ‪#‎IgersPH‬ ‪#‎IgersManila‬ ‪#‎IgersPasig‬ ‪#‎Instagood‬ ‪#‎TravelGram‬ ‪#‎TravelDiaries

 

Ang saya! Walang traffic, people are disciplined. Their trains’ fare are quite pricey but you get the convenience you deserve. People are polite, walang nagtutulakan, walang sumasalubong kahit na may lumalabas pa sa tren and hindi maingay, because in their culture that’s offensive. I lost my way finding the hotel but they are very helpful, very safe to walk at the streets, walang riding in tandem or snatcher. I wanna live in here na (arte lang) 😂 | ‪#‎HETHLERized‬ ‪#‎Japan‬ ‪#‎WhenInJapan‬ ‪#‎Travel‬ ‪#‎Vacation‬ ‪#‎TravelDiaries‬ ‪#‎MeTime‬ ‪#‎Instagood‬ ‪#‎VSCO‬ ‪#‎VSCOcam‬ ‪#‎VSCOphoto‬ ‪#‎Igers‬ ‪#‎IgersPH‬ ‪#‎IgersManila‬ ‪#‎Travelgram

Attack on Titan 2: End of the World Movie Review

Money is indeed the root of all evil. Nope this has nothing to do with the film’s storyline folks but that’s what I felt after watching the film. How come the mangaka and publisher of the breakout and multi-awarded manga (and well-received anime) let their brilliant work got Dragonball: Evolution-ized? (TRANSLATION: f*cked up)

I had hoped that picking up from the last turn of events from the first part of the film that was shown last month, there will be redemption on the franchise. Unfortunately, the producers wasted yet another screen time as they started “Attack on Titan 2: End of the World” (Japanese Title: “Shingeki no Kyojin: Endo obu za Warudo”) with a series of recap that ultimately sacrificed what could have been a spot to go deeper on the whole mythology.

And then there’s a series of flashback and a laughable dream sequence that is totally forgettable. Whoever wrote that dream sequence deserves a slap on his face with the first 17 tankōbon (volumes) of the manga. Why the hell Shikishima was in that sequence? Oftentimes, people say that one’s biggest rival is himself. So seeing Shikishima on Eren’s dream sequence made me realized that Eren is an embodiment of a pathetic loser guy! But then again, this is the f*cked up live-action movie version. In the manga, Eren’s ramification was triggered by his aspirations, ideals and ordeals in life, oftentimes he got an extra push from Mikasa and Armin, his closest childhood friends, so seeing this on the manga/anime is acceptable. But suddenly putting Shikishima on that sequence is out of the line and it just doesn’t make sense at all. Essentially, the second-part of the movie immediately picks up after the aftermath of the attack so it doesn’t make much sense how Shikishima immediately became so invested with a stranger like Eren, and that Eren would actually grew a pair of balls.

Another standout (not in a good way though) was the shift of focus from the “regular-sized” Titan (Part 1) to “Colossal” Titan (Part 2). Suddenly, viewers were introduced to this big (aka Colossal) Titan and the reign of the regular-sized Titan was abruptly omitted. Well, they were briefly shown (like 5 seconds) to remind viewers that they still exists, just outside the walls running through hills: but remember that the wall is still wide open so given the film’s timeline (Eren’s capture; the team’s journey that leads them to the bomb; all the talksh!ts; useless screen time; eating potatoes; etc.) not a single regular-sized Titan made an attempt to enter the city?

Purist like me keeps on asking, why did they omitted Levi’s character (from the original manga) and replaced by Shikishima? But after seeing the 2-part live-action movie, I thought it was a good thing on Levi’s part to be spared from all the embarrassment.

Boruto: Naruto the Movie Review

“Boruto: Naruto the Movie” is part of the “Naruto Shin Jidai Kaimaku Project” (Naruto’s New Era Opening Project) to celebrate the original manga’s 15th year anniversary. Naruto – the popular manga from mangaka Masashi Kishimoto ended its serialization in Japan last November 2014.

As previously teased on “The Last: Naruto the Movie”, “Boruto: Naruto the Movie” focuses on the new generation of ninjas. Dreams do come true as Naruto is now the 7th Hokage and is married to Hinata with two kids: Himawari and Boruto; while Sasuke, his longtime friend and rival is now married to Sakura and is gifted with a daughter named, Sarada. Other “Konoha 12” Team formed a family of their own; there are obvious pairings but with some odd pairings nonetheless.

Similar to the “The Last” film, “Boruto” made references to the last 4th Great Shinobi War which was the last and concluding part of the manga that sees Naruto promoted as Hokage (Kakashi Hatake became the 6th Hokage presumably after the war.) But the lurking question is what if you’re new to the Naruto fandom; will you be able to enjoy the film? Absolutely yes, as the viewers were aided on what transpired on the last war so you’ll get a sense on the basic premise of the film.

The “Boruto” movie pays homage to Naruto’s origin: family. What separates this film from the other Naruto movies is that unlike its predecessors where you have to save a Princess, “Boruto” is heavily tied on emotional relationships – an ordeal where old (younger) Naruto struggled but eventually triumphed.

The writers also picked up a very good material for the ultimate throwback – the “chuunin” exam. The original “chuunin” arc from the Naruto series is basically one of the keys to the manga’s early success because of its inquisitive fight battles so seeing the new generation of ninjas on the same dome is reminiscent to the early beginnings of Naruto.

Overall, the eleventh Naruto film – “Boruto: Naruto the Movie” is so easy to watch, it’s a feel good movie; and technically, the film is almost perfect: from story-telling, animation to overall direction. “Boruto” will treat viewers to an endless “throwbacks” that is both nostalgic and invigorating restart on Naruto franchise. Be sure to catch the post-credit scenes where Kishimoto reveals the identity of Mitsuki’s parents.
