Tokyo, Japan: backpacking in the land of the rising sun

Today, I begin a tour of Japan. Here I'm waiting for the train at the airport to go to Tokyo.
This bazaar in Ueno is full of cute eateries.
There are hardly any tourists in this bazaar. I joined a group of locals at their table for dinner and sake.
A bottle of sake. The locals helped me to order the food as the menu was in Japanese.
A packed train station.

Believe it or not, the weather is very cool, reminding me of winter in Shenzhen but this is the end of May.


  1. 感じが良い旅行ロジャーを持っていなさい。

  2. Riger San, you must be a ninja who is able to move through space and time. You were in Sarawak a while ago and now you are in Tokyo.

  3. Haha, wah you monitoring my movements LOL. Just joking. Ya, in the era of jet planes, we can move around like ninja.

    Today, I travelled to Hiroshima from Kyoto in about 1 hour 30 mins, a distance of 310 km. That's is like from JB to KL which by KTM takes 4 to 5 hours!
