Day Four - Morning Run By The Sumida River
Day Four - Mount Takao
But first, let's get a train station stamp!
He's rather a savvy buyer. Most of the items that he bought, he got it on the second last day of our trip and that meant we had already visited a few different shops to compare prices!
Later, we had dinner at Yayoi-Ken (where else?) which had a branch just a few metres away from the hotel we were staying in Asakusa.
By the way, Yayoi-ken has branches in Singapore, Thailand and Australia. None in Malaysia yet.
Later we ditched the Son as he wanted to rest and watch some movies and both Zaini and I head out again for a night stroll.
Starting from our hotel, we were stopped by a couple (Japanese man, Caucasian woman) who wanted to go to Kappabashi and Nakamise-dori.
At 7:00pm, we told the couple that the shops in both streets are closed by that time which was met with incredulity. Anyway, they later asked for the directions to Sensoji.
This incident happened to be the second time I was stopped for directions that day. I was stopped earlier that morning, by a vending machine vendor; who was asked for the direction of a hotel by a Taiwanese tourist. LOL
Pretty soon we reached Ueno.
There's a sports outlet store located near the stairs for the elevated pedestrian bridge towards Ueno and we spent a few minutes there.
I couldn't decide on what to buy (there were so many to choose from! LOL) so we went out empty-handed.
Wanting to pee badly, we enter Marui so I can use their toilets.
And somehow, managed to buy three skirts there! Ahaha!!!
We continued our stroll to Ameyokocho and even went into the adult shop there. Hur hur.
So instead of walking back to Asakusa, Zaini took pity on me and we took the train back. Phew!
Need to save a bit of energy as I wanted to do another run the next morning before meeting a friend who promised us a whole lot of fun gallivanting around her favourite places. ^^
