Today was specially hot in my opinion and I think I remember the weather forecast talking something about 30+ degrees Celsius?
I woke up at 8 after a pretty annoying night. There were some new guests arriving to my room at night time apparently and the first thing they do is hit the F*cking light switch turning the room into a blazing, bright, HELL! Not only did they do that once, but on twice during the night!
Oh well live and let live. Forgive and forget etc.
|Famous five-storied pagoda of Ueno|
I took the Ginza-Line from Asakusa to Ueno and walked 5 minutes from the station to the Ueno Park where the entrance was for the zoo.
The first thing I went to see was the Panda, which is Ueno zoos pride and joy. It was very big and very cute. The line was pretty long but I was quite early so it wasn't yet at its worst.
I then spent a good while there at the zoo looking at all the animals like the elephants, tigers, hippos, ice bears etc.
It was so hot outside that I had to take a break for a longer while since I was so exhausted.
|Harajuku from the heights|
After the visit I left for Harajuku to see the famous cosplayers and the Meiji-shrine and to go and window shop a little. I then came back around 18 and decided to stay at the hostel for one more night since my plans changed a bit.
Tomorrow I will leave for Osaka and there I'll be staying at a Couch surfers hose. Really looking forward my Osaka trip. I will also now start to use my JR-Pass, so unlimited JR traveling for me.
Thanks to Ako it is possible so thank you! :)
Cheers and thanks for reading!
