Vacation Stop #1

A travel blog entry by leinad61


... of the view from my room! I went onto Ueno zoo next with a few stops to take photos of Japan's unique architecture and decor (see pics). The zoo was fun for me, I saw animals I only ever saw on tv like pandas, giraffes, zebras, lions, tigers, hippos and rhinos. It was awesome and a long day as well.

Three Days in Tokyo

A travel blog entry by petrifiedcry


... due to a Swiss gentleman trying to reduce the walls to rubble with his snoring... We started early in order to go to the Tsukiji fish market (although not the 4am early in order to see the tuna auction).

Parting ways back at Tokyo station we went off to see ...
