Poppy Hills in Saitama

I worked during the Golden Week, because it'd be crowded everywhere in Japan. Saved the holidays for some other time when it's less crowded.

So on 1st June, I decided to get out of Tokyo to zone out looking at huge field of flowers. Total for 2 hours train ride from Shinjuku via JR line to Kumagaya and switching to an old school train line, Chichibu line towards Minano.

I swear this is the furthest I've been away from Tokyo, alone.

Chichibu line is so old school, they use this thick cardboard ticket. Yeah, they clip as you enter the station.

It's not Japan if there's no animu girls ._.
