Visiting Japan Consul Office in Taipei

Taking MRT from Nangang Station to Nanjing East Road took me about 20 minutes, then I walked for about 5 minutes to Japan Consul Office to apply visa for our (with husband) upcoming cruise trip to Japan this end of the month. It took me 2 minutes inside the office, and just told me to come back the following day for visa pick-up. Simple as that, no fee... knowing that the diplomatic relatioship of Japan-Philippines is at its best.

When I came out of the building, left side caught my eyes with this beautiful Japanese Garden..

 A man-made pond and falls...
with full of fish... very cozy and relaxing...

Watery Wednesday
Outdoor Wednesday
Wordless Wednesday
