Ueno Park and Tokyo Imperial Palace (March 28, 2015 Recap)

Hey guys, today we went to Ueno Park to see the cherry blossoms! There were two colors, white and pink on many different species of trees.

 

It was very interesting because tons of people kind of claimed sections of the grass with tarps to hang out at, also called Hanami. This is an annual tradition that was started to welcome in the new year’s harvest.   We also saw a lot of different people, even some guys dressed as anime girls! After leaving the park, we went to Ameyoko Market, where we saw one of the cosplay weirdos again.   

We found a restaurant where we sat down and had a hard time ordering because the menu was in Japanese! This shouldn’t be surprising since we are in Japan, but thankfully when they saw our confused faces, they brought out a picture menu, which I was extremely grateful for. 

After eating, we said goodbye to our grandparents since they are leaving today, and went to find our Tokyo Free Walking Tour.

The tour took us through the Tokyo Imperial Palace, where we learned all about the history of the place.

  

After the tour we decided to go home to relax for a while, and then go to dinner at a place called Brozers’. They have AMAZING burgers and awesome desserts. When we got home from the one minute walk, we got ready for bed and went to sleep

See you guys later!

We Have Arrived!

Hey guys, guess where we are? JAPAN! After an extremely long flight of ten hours, we landed and our party got separated in half! We didn’t expect their to be two exiting tunnels, and half the party went one way, and the other the other way.

After we meet up again, most of us had to go to the bathroom, but when we went in, the toilets were super weird.

So, which end is the front?

After going through customs and arrivals, we bought our train tickets. After we got on the train, I somehow fell asleep and missed over half the ride, which I  am grateful for.

It was a five minute walk to the apartment, which is cool!

Anyways, see you guys later!

Planning for Japan

Trey’s First Blog Post!

Hey guys, did you know we were going to Japan soon? We started planning a few days ago, but we just now have started naming the places we want to go.

One place that I definitely don’t want to go is the public baths. Seriously, who would want to get in a hot tub with other people while naked? That is just weird!

We also found out about the Legoland Discovery Center, and I am really excited about it.

And I definitely can’t wait for the food like rice and sushi!

See you guys later!
