Off to Kyoto

March 28th, 2005 Posted in Personal

Asakusa Kannon Pagoda

Well the last few days in Tokyo have been a blast, and we’re about to hop the shinkansen (bullet train) to Kyoto. I’ve uploaded a bunch of Tokyo photos, so check those out.

On Sunday we went to Ginza, which is a very upscale shopping disctrict, with the most expensive real esate on earth. It was an unbelievably gorgeous day, and we were out in t-shirts. They close Ginza-dori, which is the main thoroughfare in Ginza, so that people can shop; it’s a little like closing down 5th avenue. Pretty sick. That night we partied hard in Roppongi.

Yesterday, it started raining, and we took a bus tour of the city, including Tokyo Tower, the Diet building and Imperial Palace, and the Asakusa Kannon Temple in Ueno. Trevor’s on my ass to get moving now, so I gotta run. Enjoy the pics.
