Japan – The Country side of Yamagata Prefecture (4)

Last day in Yamagata. Back to Tokyo then to Narita Airport for the night before catching my flight back home.

A shot from the bullet train going at about 250km/hr or was it 300km/hr. Everything seen to zooming by. Can’t believe the ride was so smooth and quiet inside the Shinkansen.

Final stop was at Tokyo station where I only had an hour to spare before I taking my connecting ride to Narita airport. So where can I go within Tokyo and be back at the Tokyo station in an hour’s time?

By foot.. it would be Ginza district. Yup the most uptown district. Streets were full of neon lights and the crowd everywhere especially at the traffic light junction. Guess it was after working hours and people were rushing back or heading for dinner. Human jam!

Colourful neon lights.

Lots of cars and people.

I could not see much of Tokyo but at least got a feel of it. Well what can you expect from an hour (or less) by foot. =). Then it was back to the Tokyo station and on my way to Narita Airport to stay at the transit hotel.

My last shot in the next morning of Japan before heading back home.

So where is my next place? Wanna know? Then.. stick with me and you will find out. =)

Flight to Taiwan (delayed post)

Another hour to go be arriving at Taoyuan International Airport. Lucky it is only a 4 hour flight. Bumpy at the beginning but at later was a smooth on.
Flight meal really sucks. Had the seafood noodle or is it me who just got fed up w airplane food after having traveling on n off. It is either chicken or fish, rice or noodles. Can’t they have other kind of food!!! Another meal that I did not finish. Maybe it is better to get some street food in Taiwan for supper.

At least I got a good shot out from my window. Nice sky colour.

As known, airports are never the best and also known for been expensive places to eat. Guess that’s the way to make money out of the passengers as passengers have no choice but just to take it or leave it.

This is my lunch which does not look so appealing as compared the picture they put up. Taste… Mmmm edible but I wouldn’t order again the next time. I think I better stick to the fast food like McD the next time.
