Day in 鎌倉市, Kamakura-shi

I woke up early morning and went quickly to the shower and checked that I had my camera battery full and phone with me. I left from Monzen-Nakacho at 7.30 and of course at that time the trains are very full! but I got no problems being so close to people. Actually it is always an interesting adventure to go that early to the trains. I changed trains few times until I got to Kamakura the trip took me about 60 minutes (Monzen-Nakacho via Nihonbashi via Shimbashi via Totsuka to Kamakura ).

When I arrived to Kamakura of course the tourist information was closed but gladly they had a bit directions in English, I took the number 1 buss from the Kamakura station to Daibutsumae and in there you can see the Great Buddah ! 11.4 meters tall, Breathtaking ! with just 20 yen you can enter inside him and I did 😀 very interesting experience !

After the Great Buddah I just started following people and found many beautiful shrines and temples as you can see in my flickr!  You can easily see everything in that town by walking, no need to use the trains and buses if you don’t want to 😀

I also went to the beach to see the sea ! I haven’t seen a real beach for so long time 😀 Almost dipped in for a swim 😀 It was a very hot day for a guy from northern Europe so of course I took my jacket off but still all the Japanese were with winter jackets.

I did not see everything Kamakura has to offer but that is because I want to visit there again in this trip so I left many shrines for the next time 🙂 but I’d say I saw about 50% of it 🙂

if you are in Japan or coming to Japan, I suggest traveling to Kamakura, amazing day trip from Tokyo ! ( you can go there with Suica) just wanted to add that since I love Suica 😀

52/137 photos is now uploaded 🙂 bit more time for the rest !

Today I am planing to go to Ikebukuro to sunshine 60 to chill out a bit and now in the morning I will go to my bakery to buy something to eat and go to Ueno park to eat 🙂

ps. I will be doing more of these kind of day trips to all the Areas near tokyo and of course soon I will visit South Japan. Osaka, Kyoto and more 🙂

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you’ll like my photos:)

Sky tree,東京スカイツリー .日本

Back at home !

Kamakura was absolutely amazing !

I took over 600 photos that I need to go over tomorrow and edit and add to flickr 😀

I will try to do it in the morning if my photoshop don’t give me any trouble !

Tomorrow I will give ya’ll an update what happened there and how it is 😀

but I must recommended to everyone who is thinking of traveling to Japan or Tokyo ! visit Kamakura !

Always forgetting something..

I was just quickly going through my clothes and I noticed I forgot my favorite shirt in Finland, why is it that always when I travel I forget something important 😀 good that it was only that shirt, I can easily buy a similar one here but still.. My luck I guess 😀

Tomorrows trip has been decided!

I’m going to Kamakura tomorrow !

Let’s hope I can capture the spirit of Japan there very well with my camera 😀 recharging all the batteries right now and emptying memory cards 😀

Just now need to hope that the weather will be okay and I won’t get lost with the trains 😀 need to change trains couple of times.

Hopefully I can see everything there in 4-5 hours if not then I just have to come back 🙂

Well today…

This morning started nicely. I woke up and left to see the Sky tree up close, first I was thinking ” how the heck I’m going to find the right subway station” but then I remembered ” that thing is pretty much the second most tallest in the world… ” so yes I did find it without any hassle. It is breath taking ! I can’t wait to go up there when it finishes !

After Sky tree I came home to eat a little and decided to leave my camera bag at home and go shopping, But yet again I could not find anything. I did find amazing stylish clothes but I was not sure if it would look good on me and I had no one to ask that question from, So I took a mental image of everything I liked and need to go there with a friend later to see if they are okay on me 😀

I also visited Akihabara today, I went more deeper inside the Otaku culture today 😀 I went really far inside all the amazing stores with all the thousands of figures,animes,mangas and games ! very interesting stuff there! took everything I had on my will not to use all my money there 😀

Then I went to Ginza to check couple of shops and see that Moomin exhibition again.It’s so interesting how many people like the moomin here ! And how everything is so expensive of them and in Finland they don’t cost anything 😀

and now it is 6.21pm (18.21) I’m sitting.. mm I wonder what you call this place 😀 a room that is in my apartment building that has all the 200yen washing machines and dryers 😀 Well here 😀 waiting that my clothes are done , I know japan is save enough country to leave the clothes alone in the machine and come to get them when they are done and no one would steal them, but I just didn’t want to sit in my room always 😀 nicer to be somewhere else 😀 and since Mac is such a nice looking laptop it is nice to bring it with you 😀

This old Japanese man just thought me how to use the 200yen washing machine , I understood half of his Japanese 😀 I hope I got it right 😀 in 18 minutes we’ll see what color they are and if they are intact 😀

Next challange is ! Dryer 😀 should be easy enough , put the clothes in , then money in , and dadaaa done 😀

I want to see if it really is that easy 😀 ( never used a dryer in my life ) 😀

and after I got all of this done, I might go out with my cam to take some some nightly photos of Tokyo 🙂 in a month or two I will get better ones when the big screens and all the lights are working tho, now with the power savings not all of them are on 🙂

I will be uploading the photos of the sky tree in couple of hours if nothing else happens 🙂

Tomorrow I might leave Tokyo by the way , Just for a day trip somewhere 😀
