Yesterday I went to sleep at Midnight but at 1.30AM still without sleeping and I made pics with the pijama they give me :p
5.30AM Wake up and let's go to Tsujiki, to have a breakfast on the world's main fish market! WTF the subway entry was closed lol but when I was looking for an other entrance the dor was open! I was alone in the aisle waiting for the subway.
Once I arrive at the Tsujiki station, there are a lot of people (Goijins=Foreigners) walking like zoombies to the Market. I come in directly on the wrong side so I was walking and did a really long turn arround untill I arrive at the LAST SELL really! On the way I tried to be polite and to don't annoy to the people, there was working a man shocked about me (there were a lot of Goijins walking in the middle of the street fucking at the workers) show me the correct way, I felt proud about me! When I arrive to the last sell I come directly on the auction zone reserved for buyers, then I saw the tourist rear a line on the other way! So I excuse myself and went to the right place.
Once the last auction was finished I went to have a breakfast in a restaurant inside the market (I know, only for tourist...and a few market workers) . Eat sushi and sashimi at 7AM without nothing in the stomach is really heavy, when I finished I was really full...
Rainbow bridge and Odaiba
It's ok! these people have created a complete bussines and amussement area from the nowhere, it seems for the 2016 Olympic games (correct me if I' wrong). But It was really early when I come, like 8AM so I take few pics of the buildings (really interesting if you're architect but not I'm not).
Shocks so much to find a lot of shops on the entrance, there I buy a T-shirf for only 1000JPY, once inside the temple I wash my hands ( I did it correctly) and pray (I did it worst :p) but in my modest opinion, I did'nt find it nothing special, for me Meiji Jingu was most impresive
Now is time to Ueno park, there I rest for a minutes and join the nature, but not the museums ha ha ha also a very big black birds (crows?) where all time arround there, I neede to have a break so I take out my shoes and socks, NOT COOL AT ALL!
I arrive there arround noon and deep directly inside of the shops, I realize than more than electronics you can buy there informatic products, but it isn't so much cheap except the memory cards! SDHD 4Gb costs like 2000JPY yeah!!! But I have enough memory on my camera :( I also look for a card for my phone (now I have 2GB, but I like to have 4 or 8GB) but I cant find the damn Sony Memory stick micro Grrrrrr.
I was hungry so I eat in a Brazilian reataurant of couse japanese style, the meat was't Picanha it seems more Kobe beef, but it was delicious and 1200JPY for a 400gr beef, ha ha ha!
Is located really near Tokyo main station so I went walking...
Unfortunately I didn't spend so much time visiting the palace...
Why? Because is 3PM the sun is burning me and I have been hikking arround Tokyo for the last 9 hours at that moment lol
So I spend like an our or something like this, the fountain, bridge and the statue...
