Kaohsiung 2015 : From Narita to Kaohsiung international airport (美麗島, 高雄)

sponsored link

Nice to meet you, Taiwan 🙂

Though it was about last year, I went to Taiwan. This was my first trip to Taiwan.
I heard Kaohsiung is second largest city in Taiwan and lots of fresh seafood can be eaten because it is a port town.

I took Vanilla air. This was first LCC inernational line and first Vanilla air. Lots of “first” there 🙂

I went toward Narita international airport Terminal 3 as usual.

飛行機はバニラエア。初のLCC国際線で、初バニラエア。お初尽くし。

Right !

初めての右側ヽ(`▽´)/

I forgot that LCC standard ticket accept only one baggage that have 7kg weight included the price 🙁
More large and heavier baggage is needed additional charge. And it have to be into the cabin.

I left army knife in my suitcase !

The staff stopped me as a matter of course.
So my knife stayed in locker in Narita airport for three days.

You might guess why do I bring knife…

I need knife for eating mango when I get it in supermarkets… 🙁

International floor ! Duty free ! Though it is simple and cheap terminal for LCC, some duty shops are there.

初の国際線フロア!免税店もちゃんとある!ちゃんと国際線フロアしてるよ!

So it took much time to get to the gate though I left home earlier. When I got to the gate, the gate was already open.

I pulled myself together and get on the flight !

手荷物検査に引っかかるアクシデントありましたが、気を取り直して出発!

There’s only one good thing for me to be seated. I can take the photo of outside the plane.

窓際なのが唯一良いのは写真が撮れることです。

Four-hour flight took us to Kaosiung International Airport from Narita.

おお。これが高雄市。

Hello 🙂

Welcome, Kaohsiung international airport, Kaohsiung, Taiwan Kaohsiung 2015 (Narita)

高雄国際空港には4時間で到着。

Warm ! No. Hot there !

After I got Taiwan dollar, I went toward the subway station.
The subway station and the train was clean.

It took 20 minutes from Kaosiung International airport station to Formosa Boulevard station (美麗島站).

Token vending machine.
Token is like coin. I saw the way of taking the subway plane again and again on Youtube :p So, I could use subway smoothly.

The most famous station in Taiwan because of such a beautiful ceilings 🙂 Ah, beautiful as I saw on some websites !

高雄国際空港から15分くらいかな?地下鉄に乗って、美麗島駅に到着。有名な天井。世界で2番めに美しい地下鉄。

It is said to be second beautiful subway station in the world.

At first, I went toward my hotel.
City council station (市議會站) was closer than Formosa Boulevard station for going to my hotel. But getting to City counsil station is needed to change trains at Formosa Boulevard station and walking from Formosa Boulevard station is better than changing trains.
City council station is next to Formosa Boulevard station.
Truthfully speaking, I was anxious about changing train at first Taiwan trip 😛

    So sweet that you brought a knife to cut the mango and how lucky that you at least had the time to store it in a locker at the airport, so you could reunite after your trip:)

      Yes, I was really relieved whan the staff said to me there’s a locker just close to the security check. Terminal 3 is small.:p
      I have to take care next time.
