Woke up early and got yoga etc. done and ready go leave at 9 am. I love sleeping in my cell and staying here at the hotel because it’s like a vacuum. I’ve no idea of what is going on outside and they have this amazing calming Japanese music playing very softly and silently in the main areas. It doesn’t matter what is going on outside.
My legs were still a bit weird from too much walking yesterday but no mercy here. I’m in Tokyo so my dyspraxia just has to obey me today 😀 Therefore I decided to go to the Imperial castle, Shibuya area and then the Ueno area.
The emperor was home so most of the park was closed but what I saw was so beautiful and it was only 10 minutes walk from the hotel. To save my legs I took the subway to Shibuya and I must admit I had no idea of what waited me. I had seen pictures but the is the most organized mayhem I’ve ever experienced. So many shops, cafes and you name it they probably got it. I found a place called Fresh burgers where I got a naked avocado burger, lemon water and salad. Perfect meal.
I went to see the park in the area and there was a Latin Festival – I felt so lucky and I must admit I love the music. There was a fair too with lots of food, clothes, drinks etc. to look at while listening to latin music. I must admit I felt like dancing 😀
Since I needed to wash my clothes today I had to be back at the hotel about 17ish I had to skip Ueno, so I left and looked at the park just behind but there was so crowded with japanese having a well deserved day off.
Therefore I began to walk home to find a convenient store to buy dinner but on the way I got a bit distracted by a gigantic shrine. I had to look into that and then I went back to the hotel after shopping food.
Jiho the monk on the temple would be happy to see my meal. Shashimi, shisu leaves, water melon and salad. It was awesome and I could eat it while waiting on my clothes to get washed.
One minus about living at a capsule hotel I experienced today – I needed something from my luggage that I had no chance of foresee. Since my luggage is locked up at the reception so I only have the most important stuff in my cell locker I had to bother the staff to get my luggage, then get it up to my floor and repack my stuff and then down again to deliver it once again. But in all it works very well. Every day at 17 when I can return to the hotel everything is clean and new. There is waiting a new set of clothes for me etc. I love it 🙂
