Our Hawaii trip

My wife and I went on honeymoon to Hawaii for five days in November 2016. I would like to tell you about how we enjoyed in Hawaii with my photos.

Day 1

We took a plane for almost 8 hours from Tokyo to Hawaii. We left Tokyo at 10 P.M and arrived at Hawaii at 11 A.M. It was winter in Hawaii, but it was warm. Hawaii’s highest temperature was about 20 degrees during our trip.

After getting to our hotel, we went to Waikiki beach straight away. the temperature was warm, but the seawater was a little cold. We stayed there for two hours and then we went to a mountain to look at the night view of Waikiki. It was a very beautiful view, but I forgot to bring a tripod, so I couldn’t take good pictures. After the tour, we went to bed soon because we were very tired from the long flight.

Day 2

In the morning, we rented a Jeep at a rental car shop near our hotel. Driving in Hawaii is very easy because I can drive with a Japanese driver’s license. We went to Matsumoto Shaved Ice where it takes almost one hour from Waikiki.
The shaved ice was good. I recommend you order one for two people because it’s big. Later on, we moved on to a restaurant which is famous for delicious garlic shrimp. When we arrived at the restaurant, it was so crowded, we waited for forty minutes to eat, but they were very delicious.

After that, We went to Laniakea beach which is famous for sea turtles, but we couldn’t see them.

Day 3

In the morning, We went to Kaneohe Bay Sandbar to snorkel on a tour. It was the first time I had experienced it. Unfortunately, it was so cold and sometimes rainy, but we could do it and see a sea turtle. The sea turtle was bigger than I expected. It’s a good memory.


Day 4

As soon as I woke up, we rented a Jeep 
 again. We went to Diamond head. It took almost one hour from Waikiki. We stopped the car at the bottom of the mountain and then we hiked to the top, which took forty minutes. The view from the top was very beautiful, but the space was a little small, so if you want to take pictures, it might be a little hard.

After that, we went to Lanikai beach which is said to be the most beautiful beach in the world. It was a very beautiful and quiet beach, so I was surprised.


Day 5

In the morning, we prepared to leave our hotel and then we walked by Waikiki beach for the last time. I felt that I wanted to come to Hawaii again. We had a good honeymoon.
