I got on the plane at 8:30 PM.
The plane left Narita at 9:15 PM.
I was sleepy and decided to sleep instead of working, but it was not very successful; I slept for one or two hours.
More than 90% of the passengers was Japanese.
The plane arrived at 9 AM in Honolulu. I found a colleague of mine. We took a shuttle bus to Hilton Hawaiian Village.
It was a fine, pleasant day.
I arrived at the hotel at 10 AM, but I needed to wait until 11 AM for the room to be ready.
The room in Tapa Tower is standard.
The room is not facing the ocean, but OK.
I slept until 4 PM. Then I went out for an early dinner.
Near Fort DrRussy Recreation Center, I found a burger restaurant.
I took a beer, a salad, and a cheese burger.
The tastes were OK. I felt filled.
Coming back to the hotel, there was a wedding. Congratulations!
At an ABC store in the hotel, I bought solid deodorants and sleeping pills, which are not easy to buy in Japan.
Sounds like it’s going well…. (just logged in now). What’s the time difference between Tokyo and Honolulu?… The good thing about travelling between Australia and Japan is there’s virtually no time difference (especially between Adelaide and Tokyo). Makes travelling very easy (except for the season changes of course).
Ben, the time difference is five hours. It is not too bad.
I hate jet lags, which always much suffer me. I wish I could travel in business class every time.
One of the reasons Australia is favored by Japanese tourists is no time difference. I have not been to Australia, or even to the the southern hemisphere. I hope there will be a conference in my field.
