Aim high, Soar high

So yeah after finally getting my lazy arse off the bed, i finally took the time to edit my pictures in continuing tale of the greatest tale of all. Daniel goes to Japan. Man am i so full of myself. Haha. Ok so this is the lowdown of what happened.

We went for an early morning walk around Japan’s Imperial Palace. Its basically a castle surrounded by a huge moat supposedly to protect the imperial family from bad people that want them dead. Its big, although not as big as the forbidden city, but wow it is big. We tourists let alone the locals are not allowed to step foot in the imperial palace’s premises. duh……. But we managed to get to the Western Imperial garden and boy was it HUGE. Damn man its like a huge field filled with flowers, statues, rocks, soil, dirt, animals, and a beautiful spot where u can almost see the whole of tokyo. Guess what its not even 1/4 the size of the imperial palace’s area. They even have police officers patrolling the garden grounds in their cars. So here are some pictures.

The closest we got to the cherry blossoms (aka Sakura tree). Those are some other weird-named tree.

Yeah they call it a garden….. more like a field…

Then we made our way to the Tokyo Metropolitan Tower which is the 2nd highest point in Tokyo. The first being Tokyo Tower. So we basically got a wonderful view of Tokyo. Rode on the express elevator. It aint called EXPRESS for nothing…

Buildings as far as the eyes can see taken from the 37th floor….

Okay so after that, we decided to go and tour around tokyo. So we went to a few places, Roponggi, Shinjuku and Ueno. Most of these places come alive at night.

Hawt girls start popping up in everywhere. They way they hit it, i just stop and stareeeeeeeee. They got me love stoned, man i swear theyre bad and they know, i think that they know. [taken from love stoned by justin timberlake] couldnt help it….

Okay so after that we went to perhaps one of the most beautiful town in the world. I went to Akihabara. Yes its a tech junkies haven, anime lovers haven, gamerz haven, couples dating scene, teenagers zone to just let it loose, hell its a place for kids like me. So Akihabara, aka the Electric town. So basically they sell gizmos everywhere. If it werent for the fact that there is no warranty to bring these gizmos back to malaysia i wouldve bought that damned PSP. It was so bloody cheap. RM 300 after conversion. Unfortuantely its in japanese. Cannot change to English. Tried asking the shopkeeper if i could change it. Didnt understand a word that came out of his mouth…

Okay enough bout it, the entire town was covered with neon lights, anime posters, hentai pictures, beautiful girls, cosplayers (damn good ones…), cute anime characters walking around, nerds walking shop to shop, Couples holding hands, promoters, salesmen and saleswomen, porno shops, toy shops, tech shops, arcades, handphone shops, i mean almost everything. Theres this building, where the bottom floor was all comics all the way to the 3rd floor. Then from the 4th floor to the 6th floor was all dvds and vcds of animes and soundtracks. Then on the 7th floor to the 8th floor were games and games. Then on the 9th floor was the anime toys, gifts and merchandise store. Of course in all the floors, theres a dark corner [they are just so open to porn aren’t they?] all this in 1 building. HELL there was like so many buildings like that across the street. Okay so here ill let the pictures do the talking.

From 2-6pm, the people control the streets. Notice that they are walking in the middle of the road without any worries of getting rammed by vehicles.

Games, toys, electronics and stuff.
