I thought I might tell you about Tokyo, first, then next post will be about Beijing.
We loved Japan, we found the people so polite, and helpful, and as a tourist, it was very English language friendly. There was so much to see and do, we really only got a glimpse of Tokyo in the 7 days we were there. These are just a few photos...
Darren and myself on the Disney Monorail.
On our first day in Tokyo, we went to Tokyo DisneySea! It really was one of my favourite days of our holiday. I can see why they call it the happiest place on earth!
Me with Daisy Duck!
In the centre of the park was this giant volcano, it seemed to erupt every hour or so.
There was a spring theme throughout the park, with cute performances. I was besotted with this purple cat, it was the most beautiful costume I have ever seen.
This photo was taken in a theme park in a shopping centre, in Sunshine City, Ikebukuro. I was so happy with how many cat things there were in Japan, we were in heaven really!
We did a day tour to Mt Fuji, it was a really awesome experience! We were so lucky to see Mt Fuji on a clear day, my Grandma told me that means we are destined to go back someday.
These were so swan boats were cute, I had to stop and take a photo! This was on Lake Ashi.
In Akihabara, we went to one of those kooky maid cafes! Unfortunately we couldn't take photos of anything except the food (this is the cutest sundae I have ever had!) so I can't really show you how crazy it was, you will just have to take my word for it!
The famous Harajuku, Takeshita-dori shopping street, it was so crowded there!
There were so many adorable dogs we spotted in Tokyo, many treated like children, these cuties were in a special doggy pram!
We found this cool goth kitty in the back streets of Harajuku.
This was on Jingu Bridge, where we were expecting to find lots of young people dressed up to parade their fashions, like Gothic Lolita, or cosplay, unfortunately there were very few, despite us making sure we went on a Sunday afternoon, the crowd was mainly focused on this group of hippies offering free hugs!
So there you have a quick little glimpse into our time in Tokyo, I could really write a 5000 word essay on it, but I fear I would bore you all!
My next post I'll have a few pictures of Beijing!
