SPIRITED AWAY IN JIUFEN

SPIRITED AWAY IN JIUFEN

The beauty of Jiufen lies mainly in its narrow alleyways and its famous night market where you’ll easily become like Chiriho’s parents – meaning you’ll probably want to taste everything you’ll see. The famous A Mei teahouse will make your heart sing when the red lanterns get lit when darkness comes. I think it’s the most photogenic place in all Jiufen – meaning you’ll probably have to queue to take a photo.

MITAKA'S GHIBLI MUSEUM

MITAKA'S GHIBLI MUSEUM

Going to the Ghibli Museum is already an adventure in itself. First, you have to get some tickets, which is not an easy task. You have to book the tickets a few months in advance, through a specific french travel agency (http://www.specialistejapon.fr/ghibli-museum-mitaka) or you can buy the tickets on a vending machine in a konbini. Since I didn’t manage to have some tickets from the french travel agency (all teh tickets were sold out even two months in advance !), Noriko, my penpal, managed to buy me some tickets and send them to me :

It was settled. I had my date with Totoro on June 22th (2015) at 14 :00.
