My Day out exploring Tokyo!

 

Hey everyone!

I was meaning to take a break for a day from the blog and I decided to do something I had never done before – a full day out walking around Tokyo! Tokyo is a beautiful city and very convenient for people on foot and bikes. There are footpaths, pedestrian bridges, a gazillion zebra crossings (on even the tiniest of streets) and people in vehicles are generally very considerate. Its also very very clean and its rare to come across any overflowing trash cans or open drains. My aim was to walk for at least 10 hours (to get some good cardio) and also to explore more of Tokyo while doing so.

I started from home before 8.30 in the morning when my husband was leaving for work and started my journey, heading south towards central Tokyo. Even though the weather has been a bit dull lately, yesterday turned out to be a beautiful brilliant sunny day! My first 2 hours of walking weren’t so much fun because I was a bit sleepy and was walking mainly through regular streets I’ve seen before. But after that the cityscape changed and I came across some beautiful buildings and gardens near the Ueno area. There is nothing I love more than gardens and parks and I took a break to have some snacks!

Tokyo Photo Diary (Vol.1) : Hibiya Park

 

Hey everyone!

In my 3.5 months in Tokyo so far, I’ve never seen the city look as beautiful as it did this week with cherry blossom (known as Sakura in Japanese) trees blooming in almost every street and corner! Midweek we took a trip to Chiyoda where we ended up spending a while at Hibiya Park which was full of floral colorburst! I love parks and gardens with colorful flowers, here are a few pictures –
