2015-12-20 Tokyo, 2nd day

December 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

We slept like logs, being so tiered from two days without proper sleep and the jet lag of +7 hour time zone difference. Only the alarm clock at 9 AM woke me up. The curtain was closed, so when I tried to open it to see outside, Minna got really upset for me putting on such a bright light. But that bright light was the sun :-)

We quickly went to have the hotel breakfast, which wasn't included in price, but could be had for a discounted price if you buy tickets from the reception. 

First we went to see the Ueno district by subway. The park and the zoo, shrine north of the station. At the zoo we saw Panda and Polar bears.

Then the shopping streets south. Then we continued with the subway to Asakusa to see the Sensoji Kannon Temple. Then by subway to the Skytree building, the 2nd tallest in the world. Again we saw the city light from hih above, but this time it was from 250 meters, and you can see really far. The city is endless.

Then the last thing to see was the Harajuku fashion district, which required a 30 minute subway trip across the city. On the Harajuku main street and the Takeshita St. you can see all the latest fashions in clothing. Then it was time for a dinner and back to hotel. Next afternoon the journey continues...
