To be exact here is the real itinerary of the day: Saitama → Shibuya → Kaminarimon, Asakusa → Tokyo Skytree
Walked a total of more than 10km ++ (both ways) in total in just one day, phew how i wish i am motivated to walk this much back in my own country but sadly there isn't much (or any) walkways here + you get verbally sexual harassment as long you are a woman.
Also i think during our run from Asakusa to Tokyo Skytree, i accidentally dropped my camera's eye rubber eye guard due to the friction of the camera against my waist (got a bruise from that lol).
Yes, it's sad to know my country has no respect for women and it doesn't matter how decently we are dressed these hooligans think it's "funny" to shout and whistle vulgarly at us. But i am not here to touch on that topic, spoils the mood just think about it really so i am going to think happy thoughts and that is definitely about Japan :-P
Some of you might think i am, bias towards this country in my writings and mindset but honestly what's there to be bias about when all i compare and pen down nothing but the plain sad truth? Lol, when you guys get butt hurt over a fact that's not my problem already haha and like あなた favorite line to use is "deal with it".
Today's outing was pretty much unplanned just like the rest of the whole trip except the earlier parts when あなた had to go for his grading, so it's a pretty much "go with the flow" kinda trip. By the time we were done in Shibuya, it was actually around 7.30pm and time somehow flies extra faster in this country lol, i mean what can i say? Everything is fast paced here, from the people to their lifestyle, like the saying goes "time waits for no man" indeed.
On my left & right are the Fujin statue (God of Wind) & Raijin statue (God of Thunder), most tend to overlook them and focus on the 3.9 meter, 700kg lantern lol.
"For things that are meant to be, no matter how hard the trials are, let us persevere and see it through."
Jump on to the nearest JR Line east (green) heading for downtown Tokyo, there is a map in my previous post here: discovering-japan-ikebukuro.html
I went directly from Shinjuku, so it wasn't too far off to Ueno (Asakusa) probably around 10-15 minutes including walking?

- Train (Tobu skytree line) - different from JR line
