Tokyo Imperial Palace

that`s one of the entrys to the palace. Although you can`t enter, because the emperial family is still living there, it`s kind of nice to see the garden & walls, etc... around the palace.
And this in the middle of Tokyo, the city of the gardens with concrete for green & buildings for trees...^^

(19.07 - it was really fu$%ing hot, and these humidity is getting you down...)

Ladys & Gentleman...

...I`m proud to present you the esp rox japan tour, PART II !!!

(klick on the pictures to make them bigger ;)

it started on 13.07.09 in MU City...



with the train to the airport...


to the plane...

into the plane...


with a short stop in Beijing (Peking -> China)


(body-temperature check with something like a gun pointed at your head...these chinese people^^)

finally after around 12 h of flying over the clouds...TOKYO !!!


with the train from Narita Airport to Asakusa


looking for a hostel to stay over the night, but it was already around almost everything was closed...luckily I bought the Lonely Planet Japan Guide Book at Muc`s airport, so I knew a few adresses to look for...
finally found a place to stay -> Capsule Hotel :DD



wasn`t too bad, just my jetlag kept playing with me... :/


woke up around 4:30am and couldn`t sleep any more (damn jetlag), so I headed up to the 9th floor (I was staying on the 5th), because on this top floor was the ofuro (hot bath) & a nice view over the nearby river & the buildings.





yeah, this was pretty much the arrival, the first night & early morning...

see ya later
