After settling in to the hotel, my wife made her way straight to Akihabara!

She first caught the Yamanote line at Ueno station.







She then took the train to Akihabara - here's a view out the window of the train.







Akihabara, here we are!











Always got to like the amount of effort the Japanese put into paving.









More to come.

Now that the trees are getting larger in Akihabara it looks a lot nicer nowadays

I am very glad she didn't spend too long there! Would have cost me even more money!

Thanks for the comments everyone. I forward everything to her so she can see that people are watching.

Well, one cannot go to Akihabara without having a browse of manga. My wife actually bought two whole sets of manga from Japan... Good thing she had 20kg of extra space in her suitcase (thank you, Qatar airways).

As you can see, the stores are rather massive.

















She stopped for a Takoyaki snack from a chain place.







And as always, random cute soft toys. Thankfully she didn't take too many photos of this, though I expected her to...







Finally back to the Akihabara street scenes.















Down at the Kanda river.









More to come.

Continuing through Akihabara.









Shops galore in Akihabara of course.









And some interesting buildings too.







But one of the most interesting sites for anyone who loves electronics is Yodobashi Camera, a massive, massive electronics store.







Walking through Akihabara and the severe attack of the shakeycam courtesy of my poor wife (who tried her best to keep it straight).









And finally a foray into Muji to finish off the day.










Day two coming up next - a trip to the Shonan Coast at Enoshima and Kamakura.

2015 05 21 - Tokyo Day 2


This was the day that my wife ventured all the way down to Shonan to explore the aquarium at Enoshima (as well as the beaches).

First off, she started by taking the Odakyu Odawara line to Sagami-ono station where she changed to the Odakyu Enoshima Line.

Apologies for the blurry video, but these are the videos of the journey.








Here she arrives at Katase-Enoshima station.









General street scenes at Enoshima.
















Arriving at the Aquarium.








And down the road at the Aquarium. The traffic was very light apparently despite it still being rush hour.











First signs that you're at a beach.







And the beach itself!










More to come.

At Enoshima Aquarium there is also an outdoor portion where you get a nice view out to the bay.











There is a little shop to buy some food. My wife really likes Japanese bread.







Larger animals at the aquarium.































The gift shop.

Outside the aquarium.









Warning - dive bombing kites!







And tsunami preparations.







The area is really quite beautiful and very well landscaped.







The beach and surfers.



















Black kites are everywhere.
