Japan Day 20

Day 20.
Going back to Tokyo. Mainly the western part. (Harajuku, Shinjuku)

IMG_2698
IMG_2699

IMG_2700
This street shows the maximum effect of the Harajuku culture of "cute" everything.
The reason [cute] is in parentheses is because society calls it cute; I am pretty sure that doesn't make me considered to be in society...

IMG_2703
It's a map of the "National Stadium."
HOWEVER, if you look closely.........
IMG_2704
Yup. Y'all go to shcool to learn right? NOPE. (At least I can doubt a little for Japan.) [It is a "national stadium..."]

IMG_2706
No BMX. (Bolded it for ya)

IMG_2712
Just a neko relaxing on a roof.

IMG_2717
Dinner. Kitsune Soba.

IMG_2697
Japanese TV program teaching Ayase Haruka Chinese... (they fail at pronounciations... 不是嗎?)

IMG_2721
IMG_2722
IMG_2723
IMG_2724
JUST COZ THEY'RE KO-NEKOS. :I

IMG_2693
No comment.
Just a math formula of the boob movement...) >.>

IMG_2720
Late night snack. CHOCO-MELON-PAN!

EDIT:
If you need to avoid those guys that try to have you enter their carabaret club or host club, have an European next to you.  High chances are they won't bother with you. Trust me.

That's it for today.
Hope to be more inspired to take pics 2mrw...

Japan Day 19

Not much today, as arrived to Utsunomiya, Tochigi Prefecture.

Going back to Tokyo (for the day) just to fill in any things that I haven't yet bothered to do.

IMG_2689
Went to a shrine at night while walking back to hotel.

Ah, just met up with DTryPlex today. Nothing new. Just throwing stupid jokes back and forth. Nothing much different from IRC chats... really.

Japan Day 17

Day 17
Firstly, they said it was going to rain.
All lies, I tell ya.

As usual, the train ride there from Nagano station.

IMG_2642
And another shrine
However, this one is for Sanada Yukimura.
IMG_2643

IMG_2644

IMG_2645
Then off for some Edo-like houses.
But then again, internets always upscale everything; when you get there, it's most likely as bad as it gets.

IMG_2651
Then walked 8 km uphill to find the ruins of Sanada Clan's mansion...
No luck. Couldn't even find it...
So took pics of random stuff. and nice scenery.
IMG_2652
IMG_2653
^found the welcome board though...

IMG_2654
^half of what's on this map doesn't even exist :I
or it's just i'm not looking hard enough...

IMG_2655

IMG_2657

IMG_2660
I would really want to work for this company.

IMG_2669
IMG_2672
Then I gave up by then.
Already looked for the ruins for 4 hours... under the supposed raining sky.

To be honest, I didn't get much done today, however, it was fun... kinda.

It took me quite a while to know that I was allowed to go in the castle :D

IMG_2519

Japan Day 15

Day 15!

First, I'm off for Zenkouji Temple!
It's a biggggggggggggggggggggggggg temple.

Endless scenery. I love you, Nagano (Prefecture).

IMG_2448

IMG_2452
IMG_2453
IMG_2454
IMG_2455

IMG_2456
IMG_2459

4th km down.

IMG_2475
IMG_2477
/me takes a pic before it gets squashed by the pedestrians.

IMG_2478
All kanji and only one hiragana. Don't expect to understand Japanese with just hiragana.

IMG_2480
IMG_2481
5 km down.

IMG_2483
IMG_2484
6 km down.

IMG_2485

IMG_2495
10 km

IMG_2496
11 km

IMG_2497
IMG_2498
12 km down.

Then I swear, the markers just disappear... Anyhow, walking back is another 4 km. (Walking back adds another 2 km)
IMG_2500
IMG_2501
More scenery.

And then, my phone dies. So I couldn't take any more pics. (Would be kinda repetitive anyway.)

Then 2mrw, time for some real Japan stuff >:D

Oh yeah, please do visit zenyaku subs for my buddy's, DTryPlex's, post on our approach of the trip to Japan. He'll also be joining me in moonland for the next week and a half.
