Last Japan trip post, promise ^^;
We’ve got the view from Sunshine 60, a more few random shots from all over and finally narita-san, a template in narita.
Probably said all this before in my previous post, but it was a really superb view of the city. ^^
Was kinda eerie ‘cuz there were so few people (unlike every other square inch of the city :P)
View’s probably much better at night, especially since you don’t have to worry about the sun affecting lighting.
The ikebukuro station I had arrived at.
Crazy how the city just goes on and on and on…
Alrightythen, moving on. Tokyo Tower!
Alas, that’s it. Next! ^^;
Going to asakusa, didn’t quite get off at the best station… was quite a walk ^^;
Spotted a first kitchen on the way over. Alas, I missed out on their double cheese bacon egg burger yet again orz. Next time!
Instead had a tsukimi~udon. Curry rice for my co-worker.
You’ll never go thirsty in Japan as long as you have 100~150 yen on hand ^^
Finally arrived in Asakusa after 10-20 minutes ^^;
And finally got a semi-decent picture of the pagoda there. errr… well lighting wise… and emphasis on semi…
Didn’t really take too many pics of asakusa since i’d been there a few times already, but if you missed ’em, the rest are in this post.
On to Narita!
That’s an uagi restaurant you can find on the way to narita-san the big temple there. If you like unagi… you’ll be very happy… not because that particular restaurant was so great, but because it’s one of many!! Every other building was an unagi restaurant! (for the record, it was delicious)
Hot dog? … … HOT DOG.
For good luck, just get a coin on the turtle rock’s back.
Was again blessed with beautiful weather.
The temple grounds were huge! There was even a calligraphy museum and gardens.
Wish I had some time to spend at the calligraphy museum (love that stuff ^^) but alas, had to make sure to get to the airport in time.
Gardens were nice, but I have a feeling it’s a lot better with everything full bloom.
Some shutter speed shenanigans. 1/80s above. 1/1250s below.
Wish I didn’t have that huge shadow -_-;; 1/2000s below.
‘cuz of the lighting didn’t really turn out so great, but still a neat effect ^^
And we end it all with this:
Think my previous sakura shots were a lot better, but I’ll allow it… it’s the last photo I took on my trip ^^
If you’re curious where narita-san is… unfortunately I have no idea. My coworker drove me there and then to the airport ^^; If I had to guess, I’d say it’s prolly relatively close to a train station ^^;
