I was scared stiff before I came. Excited, sure, but scared stiff as well about visiting Tokyo.
It's one of those places which had this gigantic reputation that just made everything else before it look miniscule.
I'm too lazy to blog about everything that happened today, but I'd just like to share with you a couple of Tokyo facts.
The first two facts, I'll let the pictures explain. Japan is a contrast of ultra modern, and tradition preserved.
The next one is that expensive it need not be. I spent only around 5000 yen today - all inclusive except the hotel, which the company is footing, and the airport limousine bus, which is 3000 yen. 5000 yen included lunch, all the transportation and drinks all day long. It took me from Meguro to Harajuku, then to Shinjuku, Ueno, Asakusa, Tokyo, Ginza and back to Meguro. That's 5 more places than I thought I could reach with my budget ! 5000 yen is around RM150. It isn't all that bad. If you take away my higher end dinner, I just spent 2200 yen, around RM70 !
More to come later !
