Hey so a few crap things happen in Tokyo, my camera, watch and shot glass broke but i still had a good time exploring. It s so hot in Japan, the humidity is incredible you come out of the hostel and it hits you like a brick wall. Japan is bigger then i thought and i should have definetley come longer, i dont have enough time to do what i want so i am rushing doing what i can.For fellw backpavckers if you read this make sure you get the JR rail pass so worth it, i dont have it and it would have saved me so much time, but you haveto get it begore you get to Japan you cant get it here

Tokyo is a huge city with enormous skyscrapers, it is a cool city and the people are so nice, so helpful. I got lost once and a guy walked me to where i had to be and it was a 15 minute walk!. I went to the biggest temple(forgotten the name) in tokyo which was cool. I also went to the imperial palace but for sone reason you couldnt get in so i didnt hget to see the gardens

Hakone Yumoto 
I was planning to climb Mt Fuji but didnt have the equipment and so decided to go here as you can get a view of it, unfortunately it was clouded over so that was annoying. However Hakone is beautiful, it is surrounded by mountains and you get a cool view of them, on the boat on Lake Asahi. Unfortunatley but my camera and watch broke that day but i did get some pictures first, so i was lucky. I replaced the camera which was painful as it bites into my budget. I also got the watch sorted out at a Casio technicians for free which was good


The hostel was cool back to normal compared to Estonia but the people were cool, it was more laid back people then partying. I didnt really get to check the nightlife as i  had to sort out what i needed to do in Japan which i should have planned better and would have then come for longer.

i know this short but i ahve no time so update you in Osaka
