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.
