Shiga is an underrated prefecture in Japan that needs to be recognized, too. Only few were written about this area yet there are much more to see on this part of Japan. This is because its neighboring prefecture, Kyoto, usually takes the limelight when it comes to tourism. Only about 0.02% of the total tourists visited Shiga in 2000 – a fact from Mr. Wiki. I hope I can convince you to have a stopover at Shiga while you are in the country after reading this.

Oftentimes than not, theme parks don’t appeal to me as it becomes too crowded and every ride or attraction has never-ending line just to get inside. “No pain, no gain” as they say. But thanks to my sister, we had a family trip in USJ that’s not too tiring and worth to recommend.
I always sought to be personally and wholly involved in planning my travels. I have specific wants where to go and what to experience. Also, I tried to have allowances in between schedules ‘coz where’s the adventure if you try to plan everything, right? I wanted it to be organized yet still flexible for whatever might be better and let the fun flow naturally.

Travel not just to experience but to INSPIRE. Spread love; elephants are God’s creations, too. ❤️
