Nothing much on Day 1. A long plane ride to Japan on Delta Air.
Catching a glimpse of Japan.
We took a Shinkansen (or bullet train) from Narita Airport to Tokyo.
Airbnb was the choice for accommodation due to it’s price. It was an eye opener of the interior of a house in Japan. We stayed in Shin Okubo, or what is commonly known as the Korean Town in Japan.
The busiest traffic light in the world, the Shibuya Crossing was pretty interesting. Man! It was crowded with people crossing the road and trying to take a picture. It is dangerous to take a photo in the middle of the road in our homeland, but it is perfectly normal here!
After some light shopping at Shibuya, dinner was in a restaurant at Shin Okubo. The tuna-don was really fresh.
Early day to the Tsukiji Fish Market. Place where the freshest fish of all are sold at. If you want some good sashimi, this is the best place to come to. They had the live bidding of raw tunas interestingly. Honestly, this place is a food haven.
below are just a few delicacies. We can’t upload them all, the team is salivating thinking back about it.
Monster spotted! No seriously, it’s a Tuna, as a whole. It’s huge.
Talking about size, I also spotted some huge crabs.
The restaurant’s queue wasn’t too long there. Sushi for lunch before setting off for my next destination, it was the freshest sushi we ever had!
We walked through Ginza.
Seriously $200++ for a melon?
A peek at the Tokyo Imperial Palace. This place was huge. Surrounded by water, it must be hard to invade the castle in the past.
There is a park at the west side of the castle. It is clean and relaxing.
There was still about a week before the cherry blossom blooms, but we managed to view those that bloomed early. Couples, you would love the scenery.
The east side is referred to as the East Garden of Imperial Palace, it is where the main garden is. Probably the area where the emperor liked to chill at. The old structures are still there.
The picture above is a guardhouse. Guard duty, anyone?
Inside the garden, we had no idea what species they are, but they are beautiful.
We headed to the streets of Ginza.
Ramen for Dinner, DUH!
More shopping after that. Before sleeping, we had Yoshinoya for supper. Honestly, it was not too different from those in Singapore.
