Japan 2017: An Amateur’s Guide (Day 2)

(Continued…)

Our Second day in Japan consisted of lengthy walks in the Ueno Park and Zoo, the Tokyo Natural Museum of Science and the district of Shinjuku. Ueno was probably one of the largest parks I’ve ever been to, and also one of the prettiest.

here are some of the snaps I took:

3 things I observed in Japan: they like to read/play/surf on their phones, they like to sleep as much as possible during train rides, and they like to fall in line in just about anything.

The Ueno Shrine has these cute wood cut-outs where people usually write their well wishes and prayers while the paper ones are those fortunes which foretold bad luck.

There are so many other amazing displays inside the museum but I can’t post them all due to lack of space and I’m sure you’ll be pretty much bored to death if I make it any longer than it already is.

Shinjuku was a lot like Kinshicho since it was mostly urban and the establishments present in the former were somehow the same with the latter. But there are also peculiar views that Shinjuku boasts about:

I hope you are liking the spam of pictures so far. I still can’t get over the fact that I stepped on Japan soil for the first time in my life, so please bear with me in the succeeding days. haha. I bid you all a good night ahead!

Lovingly,

Iva
