Tokyo Day 5 - Bus Tour & Korakuen
Day 5 of our trip in lovely Tokyo
Starting the day out with ramen. They just taste so much better that what you can buy here in Denmark
This day, we decided to go on a guided bus tour. We were kind of tired from our night out, and we had talked about doing one anyways.
It was really cool driving around and just seeing the city. It really made me realize just how big Tokyo is, and how little we actually got to see in our short week there.
The highlight of the bus tour was Tokyo Tower. It is the second tallest building in Japan, and was the tallest before Skytree was built. It has a lot of history to it, and the Japanese believes that if you look at the tower, just when the lights turn on and make a wish the wish will come true.
The remaining passengers on the bus (mostly Japanese people) were VERY excited about seeing this up-close. Hua and i had a bit of a laugh because of their reaction haha. It's pretty cool yeah, but not something I got overly excited about :)
A picture of the monorail! We were quite lucky that it passed by just as we drove by the tracks.
A(not so good) picture of the Rainbow bridge, the second highlight of the tour. It was hard to get a good picture because of the railing on the bus.
Cutie !!! :3
The Ferris Wheel! :)
This was an old theater, but unfortunately I don't remember what they said about it on the bus tour :/ It was really pretty though.
After the bus tour, we went to one of the nearby department stores and looked around a bit. We were actually really tired by this time, but we wanted to use our time wisely.
After shopping a bit, we went back to our hotel, and found a restaurant nearby for lunch. We had passed this little Indian place quite a few times, so we decided to try it out.
Mango Lassi. A little bland :/
The food smelled and looked super delicious, but it lacked in taste, which was a shame. It was very cheap though.
Later on in the evening, we decided to check the area around Tokyo Dome out. Apparently, there's an amusement park, a Japanese garden a a good handful of shops and restaurants there. Plus a supermarket! Why is it, that you always find out some of the best things, when you don't have enough time to explore it properly?
We picked one of the places for dinner. Hua ordered udon
And I ordered katsu
After shopping and eating, we went back to the hotel, but not before going to the convenient store! We went to Lawson's this time
That's it for this post! Writing these makes me wanna go back again SO bad!
See you in the next one :)
