We got back to the hostel around 730 am, one of my roommates also came back, he said he just left the nightclub. He had a good time for sure then. I slept for 2 and a half hours before I woke up, took a shower to get rid of the cigarette smoke on me. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do today. The only thing left in the itinerary that I haven’t’ seen is Odaiba. I arrived at Shimbashi station and bought the one day pass for 800 yen, which will allow me to ride the Yurikamome train to Odaiba. The train is fully computer controlled, no conductor inside the train to operate it.
The first thing I did was take the escalator up the Fuji TV building before looking at the view of Rainbow bridge. It was a scenic view as usual when I got to the statue of liberty replica and the bridge. I could see Tokyo Tower and the surrounding skyscrapers behind. They also had a boat cruise along the harbor, which I didn’t go in since it was still bright outside. I figure the best time to take the cruise was at night when the city lights go up. I personally didn’t want to wait 3 hours for nightfall to come. I left the Odaiba area and went back to the hostel to relax for a bit. I wasn’t feeling my usually upbeat self, the adrenaline and the excitement was almost gone, and the thought of going back to my hometown didn’t help alleviate these symptoms I was experiencing.
