In March, 2007, I went to Sydney, because URAWA REDS my favorite soccer team in Jleague had a match of Asia Champions league there. It was my first tlaveling abroad.

I left Narita Airport in March 19th in the night. I borded QANTAS airline flight 136. In-flight meal was good, and all attendants were very kind. After the dinner, they served hot-chocolate with marshmallow. It mede me relax, and I felt their kindness through this service.



In the morning, March 20th, I arrived at Sydney International Airport. It was shiny day and temparature was already high.
I took airport-link train from airport to central of the Sydney city. I checked the map in the book written about sydney city, and walked from central station to the hotel I reserved in Japan with my big heavy baggage. it took about 30 min. because I lost my way sometimes.
I arrived ato the hotel about 12p.m. and checked into, but my room was not ready yet, so I had to wait till 3 p.m.

I decided to walk around, so I kept my baggage to the hotel, and go out.
The hotel was near the Hyde Park, so I went there first. I found a big tall tower when I was in the park. It was the Sydney Tower. I started walking again to there. On the way to the tower, I bought a bottled water and candy at WOOLWOOTH a big super market. I used this super market many times during in the Sydney. After bought them, I remembered that WOOLWOOTH was near the town hall station, and near the station, there was Queen Victoria Building. So I changed my destination. I went to QVB. I didn’t enter the building, only saw by outside.

Next, I decided to go Opera House. I memorized it was near the Cirqular Quay bay. I walked depending on only my hunch. (I always do like this in when I visit cities for the first time.) A few minutes later, I felt salt smell and wind like in the beach. I walked quickly and there was Cirqular Quay bay (my hunch is great) Soon, the Opera House and Harbour Bridge came in to my view. They were big, huge, and sea was shining by sunshine. It was really beautiful view. I went closer Opera House along the bay. It was really big white hall.





Then I went to more along the sea to Woolloomooloo bay. On the way to Woolloomooloo, there was Mrs. Macquarie’s chair, Royal Botanic Garden, and some restaurants.
I walked trifle about 30 minutes, Woolloomooloo area, Kings Cross area…, finally, I arrived at St Mary's Cathedral. It wan next to the Hyde Park, and time was already 3p.m. so I back to the hotel and rest a little time.

A few hours later, my sell phone was rung and I was waked up by calling melody. My friend also visiting Sydney for REDS’ match, called to me and he asked me to go somewhere for the dinner. I went to museum station and met him there. We went to the hotel another friends staying. There was next to Darling Harbor. The harbor was very beautiful even in night. We talked for a few minutes what to eat, and decided to eat “aussiebeef” steaks. We asked hotel staff were there some restaurant can eat it near there. He said “go to the Geroge street. There are a lot of restaurant along the street.” So we went to the Geroge street and found restaurant we can eat steaks only 5 $



We orderd steaks and beer. We could choice chips or mash and sauce. I choose mash potato and gravy sauce. Look at the photo, its very big steak Meat was little tough but delicious. Beer was ofcause good. We ejoyed talking and eating.

After we left the restaurant, we went to WOOLWOOTH and bought foods and water. I bought bread, salad, milk, and some fruits for tomorrow breakfirst.

Then, we back to each hotel.
I felt little tired, so went to bed early

2nd day in Sydney, I woke up about 10a.m. In that day, we had a match, but it was in the night, so I went to sightseeing till the evening.

My friend and I went to Sydney Aquarium at first. There were many fishes having beautiful color, big sharks, and cute penguins like in the movie “happy feet”.



Aquarium was side of Darling Harbor. After watch the aquarium, we looked for a restaurant for the lunch at harbor side. However every restaurant was expensive for us, so we went to a food court in harbor side shopping centre. We could eat lunch watching harbor there, too. We ate sandwiches. I ordered chicken one with salad. Shop staff made it hearing order. I watched how to make. She put much chicken, much sliced cubage, tomato, etc. Finally very very big sandwich (look at photo) served for me It's as big as MEGAMAC I thought



I was full, so I couldn’t eat any dessert though there were some ice cream shops.

Then, we went back to town hall by foot and visited the QVB. I saw it last day by outside. It was so beautiful building I felt, but inside of it was more beautiful All of things in this building were very tasteful, clock, steps, windows, ceiling, ground, even the elevator Everything were really, really beautiful



Next, we went to St Mary's Cathedral. There was filled with solemn air. Some people were praying to god. We couldn’t speak anything because we were swallowed by this atmosphere. The Cathedral was beautiful and magnificent building. There were stained glass, rich carving, mosaics, etc. each and every is delicate and beautiful.



When we left the Cathedral, there were many clouds in the sky. Soon, it had rain. We ran into the cafe near the Hyde Park. There were many young customers in the cafe. They looked like merry.
I ordered a Cafe Mocha and an ice cream. I surprised at volume of ice cream. I paid for ice cream only 1 $, but there were much ice cream on the dish. It’s hard to eat all of it for me, so I give some scoops to my friend, and put some scoops in to my drink.
We spend at there till stop raining. We talked a lot about much would held after. It very exited me, and I died to go stadium and watch the mach as soon as possible



Its already evening, so we decided to go to the Aussie Stadium

We took a taxi from the hotel to the stadium. I saw many people wearing Sydney FC’s T-shirt along the street to the stadium, from taxi. Ofcause there were people wearing Urawa Reds’ T-shirt, too.



At the stadium, there were a lot of URAWA REDS’ supporters It was like in the stadium in Japan. According to an article in the newspaper,over 2000 supporters came from Japan. Also my friends were there. We showed ticket and through the gate. We put flags brought from Japan. Some of them were our fiends’ couldn’t came to Sydney. They entrust them to us.



Then, it was time to kick off.

Sydney FC got a goal at 1 min. in 1st half, and at 22 min. Sydney got a goal again by PK. The score was 2-0. I was stunned at first, but kept cheering my team. Then Ponte shot and got a goal at 30min. After that Urawa made some chance. Finally, we got a goal again Yuichiro Nagai shot at goal at 10 min. in 2nd half. Urawa attacked again and again, bun couldn’t get more goals.

The match was over and the score was 2-2.

It was not so bad result I thought. Ofcause, I wanted to win and felt mortification, and there some chances to win. However it was the first official match in foreign country for Urawa, and Sydney is the toughest team in the group many journalists said. What’s more, all of player showed effort and never gave up till the end. So I contented this result.




After the match, we went a pub and talked a lot about the match. It was last till the midnight.

Next day I went to TARONGA ZOO with friend. We bought ZOO PASS (it including both ferry ticket and zoo ticket) and took a ferry from Cirqular Quay. A view from ferry was very beautiful. It was sunny day, so sea was shining and we could sea Sydney city, Harbour Bridge and Opera house at the same time.




At TARONGA ZOO we met koalas at first ofcause!! We were really looking forward to meet koalas. It was so cute Pretty I want to hold them so next time, I’ll go another state in Australia. (In NSW we can’t hold koalas by law.)



Next, we met emus, kangaroos, and wallabies. We could meet kangaroos and wallabies very close distance, because there are nothing like glass or fence, between people and animals. We could touch them if we want. Emus were little scary but kangaroos and wallabies were very cute A little wallaby eating foods was especially cute. I wanted to bring him to may house.



The zoo was large, so there are many kinds of animals. Giraffes, monkeys, gorillas, lions, elephants, birds, etc. In the Asian area, there were bantams! I surprised it, because in Japan, we can see bantams at many places.

And the view from elephant’s area was beautiful!!


After watched most of animals, we were hungry so we went back to the city.

We went to the Rocks area near the Cirqular Quay. I saw some photos of Pancakes on the Rocks before visiting Sydney in Japan at this web site. It is the restaurants we can eat pancakes. I wanted go there and eat pankaces before visiting. I looked forward to eat it as much as meet koalas

I ordered pancake with chocolate and bananas, and iced chocolate. My friend ordered pancake with strawberry and iced cafe.
Look at photo




It’s very big and much cream on the cakes and drinks!! I couldn’t eat all though I was very hungry before eating. But ofcause, they were very delicious Cake was hot and little salty by butter and chocolate and ice cream were cold and very sweet. They came in to my mouse together. It’s really delicious I was very satisfied.

Then we went to DFS GALLARIA to bought souvenirs. I bought only pasta shaped koala. Most of things in DFS were expensive, so I decided to buy at WOOLWOOTH. At WOOLWOOTH I bought stuffed animal of koala (it’s for me), many chocolates, snacks, and vegemite

Then got out WOOLWOOTH, it was already got dark. We went back the hotel and left souvenirs, and met again. We looked for restaurant for dinner, but every restaurant was already closed. So we went to the pub near the hotel. We were there till the midnight.

When I back to the hotel, it was 4 a.m. I would get up 6 a.m. that morning because my flight was early, but I didn’t pack baggage yet and I wanted to take a shower, and I had to do them, so I didn’t have enough time to sleep.

I left the hotel in the morning. I didn’t sleep finally. I was very sleeping…


(↑my room in sydney)

I walked from the hotel to the central station with my big baggage.
When I was waiting train at plat home, I thought if the train I would take composed with new type car, I would be happy. However old type one was came.



At airport, there were many people at the QANTAS’ counter, so it took an hour to check in, and I didn’t have enough time to see duty free shops. I went to the gate my flight would left quickly. But flight was delaying. I didn’t need to hurry.

During the flight to Japan, I was remembering a lot of things in Sydney. There were many interesting things and delicious food. I want to go there again
