October 13 & 14, 2016
The day that Sweetie and I were looking forward to for so long finally came. The meeting time for our tour group was 9 am. We got there at about 8 am . . . around an hour early. But we were not the first! Love it!
My cousin V happened to be on the same flight as us, and she greeted us with some Ma'ona Musubi! Howzdat yah!! Soooo much better than the $35 RIP-OFF CPK airport breakfast me and Sweetie bought last year.
V said that Ma'ona Musubi is located on Alakea Street. I couldn't believe that she went to the trouble to pick us up something to eat. So thoughtful.
This is the konbu musubi. It had a hint of ume in it . . . very, very oishiiii. Thank you again, V!!!
I took a photo of the snack on the plane. I started feeling a bit nauseous after that and ended up not taking any more pictures.
After a rather bumpy and claustrophobic ride (ANA Airlines, BTW) we arrived at Narita Airport where we rested for a little bit before catching a domestic flight to Chitose, Hokkaido.
While waiting for our domestic flight we checked out Lawson.
This was my very first purchase of this trip . . . "Cream Zenzai".
It was a perfect introduction.
The very best thing about staying at Chitose Air Terminal Hotel is that you can walk straight to your hotel after landing.
