Japan 2017: An Amateur’s Guide (Day 3)

(Continued)

Day 3 was probably one of my most memorable experiences ever. We visited one of the most iconic studios Japan has to date – the Studio Ghibli Museum. Located in the quiet town of Mitaka, it is approximately an hour’s train ride from Kinshicho since it was the last station under the Chuo – Sobu Line. You have to change stations from the Chuo-Sobu Line to JR Line to get to Mitaka. I slowly got the hang of looking at train station maps and changing lines ever so often as days passed. It wasn’t as difficult as it seemed once you got used to it.

We also went to the Tokyo Tower that night and we were privileged enough to have witnessed the 30th anniversary of the Final Fantasy Series. The Tokyo Tower Management displayed projected images of Final Fantasy installments, sagas, and RPGs on the tower’s glass panels. How cool is that?

Here are some of the photos I took:

After stopping at Mitaka Station,we rode the Studio Ghibli Bus. It costs around 700 yen back and forth.

We were only allowed to take photos outside the studio, so I took a few at the museum’s garden cafe which was totally the bomb.

The look-down window. See how high up we were?

The Tokyo Tower was beautiful in all her glory. We got an amazing view of the whole metro.

 

We spent the whole morning at Hayao Miyazaki’s sweet abode and capped the day with my Everglow, Tokyo Tower. Traveling has made me appreciate Man’s unending quest for beauty, knowledge, wisdom, and technology.

Still more to come in the next coming days, guys! Don’t leave me hanging. 😉

 

Love,

Iva
