In case I have missed out, this is a company trip, it is supposed to be a four day trip, some of us extended to 6 days. In first three days I stayed at the Shinjuku Hyatt as the company pays for it, in the remaining days, Hannah and I shifted to the origami hostel at Asakusa.
We took nearly 2 hours to asakusa from shinjuku
Huge crowds headed out from the subway to office towers. The crowd is fast moving and robotic, no way we could get our way through among the fast moving crowds. We were quite deterred after we tried once.
after we reached asakusa station, we left our luggage in the lockers and intended to retrieve it when we came back from Nikko. These lockers are life saver for travelers. Around s$10 for a locker of this size.
We are quite late by the time we reached the mountain top. We managed to catch the rope way to the viewing platform just before it closed. With the snow mountain in the backdrop, little houses spread around the lake, and a waterfall flow into the valley, we marvelled at the scenery for a long time. Watching from the binocular, little details afar are interesting.
Japanese certainly know how to choreograph a tourist experience. We began the tour by viewing the 'zoom out' scenery then we zoom into the big picture experience them one by one
We took a lift down to watch the waterfall
My dinner. Bought it under pressure because the auntie said this was the last one haha. Not so nice and caused me stomachache
Origami hostel-highly recommended. Hannah is counting her remaining cash.
