post-AMSC Japan: Running around Tokyo

salam & hi...

finally the last update for the final day in Tokyo, Japan! For the final day, we decided to go on a walk around Japan (running occasionally,haha)...forgot to mention in the last update, after the trip to Disneyland, all of us were sent to different hotels to stay in for the night & i had the craziest dinner i ever had which comprises only of rice+nori (seaweed)+ice coffee...wut?!but i'm still grateful coz at least i found sumthing to eat...haih...

"my dinner......"

so back to the final day....we decided to go to:
  1. Imperial Palace in Ginza
  2. Asakusa
  3. Akihabara
  4. Roppongi
  5. Rainbow Bridge in Odaiba
Looks a lot? We spend about 12+ hours to go to all of it!! And it was fun!! Oh, we again divided into 3 groups, the same as last time at Disneyland, dunno why...maybe same minds think the same?haha... Sadly, there were no pictures taken in Asakusa (u can see the pics in my post for the 5th day), Akihabara and Roppongi this time...

+---------- Imperial Palace in Ginza ----------+

Only one word is fit to describe it: magnificient! The scenery was breathtaking, the lushful greens, the traditional architecture, etc... It's really worth it if you are a fan of ancient & historic places!! To get here is simple, it's just a 15 minutes walk from Tokyo station!

"looking at my distant future...yeah right, i was looking at the palace!haha..."

"behind me is one of the main palace side"

"picnic?where's d food?"

"one of the palace's gate!"

"nijubashi bridge!"

"beautiful isn't it?"

"another entrance to the palace"

"the statue of.... Kusunoki Masashige!"

+---------- Rainbow Bridge in Odaiba ----------+

After finishing up in Ginza, we went to Asakusa, then to Akihabara, next is Roppongi and the final stop for the day would be Odaiba! This is where the famous Rainbow Bridge is located...1st impression; It looks almost identical to Penang bridge from far but what's more is that it has two floors!the upper floor is for the cars & other vehicles to use, the lower floor is for the train tracks, nice! But it do looks nice at night, sadly we don't have much time here because we need to rush to catch the last train to narita..

"in the train, guess, is this pic candid or not?haha"

"ipah yg kelaparan; look at the paper bags!girls+shopping= unstoppable (in DoTA voice)"

"a beautiful & well-kept park (i bet it's hard to find one in Malaysia)"

"the Rainbow Bridge!!"

well, after that we rush off quickly to the train station, hoping to catch the last train to narita because we are staying in Tobu Narita Hotel for the night because it's close to Narita Airport...And boy i tell ya, it was tiring & funny a bit, haha...


well, that's the update for the final day in Tokyo, Japan..Overall, what i can say about Tokyo is that, it's really clean! In comparison to kL, it is like heaven and earth. The girls are also very kawaii~~ But i still love Malaysia (& Malaysians, hehe..)!! And Japanese people really have good manners, example:
  1. To cross the road, they'll wait until the light turn green no matter if the road is empty!!
  2. On escalators, they'll stick to the left side if they are not rushing off so the right side would be free to walk on if you are rushing!
  3. The cashier will always mentioned your total price of items, how much you pay and your balance no matter which shop you are in!
I guess that's all for my AMSC experience, got nothing more to add..I've also reached my goal of taking more than 1000 pics in Japan! Yay~
Until next time (if i ever go to Japan again, really hoping)!! Jyaa~~
