Hey there cutie pies!
It’s suddenly friday again and I finally felt like blogging.. or doing something in general. I’m off to Italy for a few days but I wanted to update you guys with some impressions of Tokyo.
Not sure if I’m going to blog about the events chronologically but it pretty much looks like I’m going to start from the latest events.
At the beginning I thought that nine days in Tokyo would kill me. The hotels and youth hostels were all booked out and we didn’t have a lot of money left but the days flew by in an instant and despite the fact that we had to change hotel every three days, I was sad to leave Japan.
The people in Tokyo are very polite and cosmopolitan and there hasn’t been one single place or moment of awkwardness. Except maybe for those moments when we had to take the subway with our humongous amount of luggage but I think that throughout time, we learned how to handle that quite elegantly. People sometimes stare at you in different ways and school kids will most likely giggle and say “herooo!” (like in “hello”) to you and even if I stuck my tongue out at them because I was feeling exeptionally mature, they yelled “kawaiii“. That was quite puzzling and frustrating since I sometimes tried to be rude on purpose but I guess it was okay and we sometimes even had a chat with them.
Believe it or not, but I didn’t spend everyday shopping and on one of those days I needed some green space so we went to the Hamarikyu Gardens, a vast public park that is surrounded by seawater of the Tokyo Bay. We walked for quite some time and enjoyed the view of the trees finally starting to change color, people eating their bento (lunch boxes) under a pavillon, interesting birds and all of this scattered on a green area between skycrapers and the ocean.
