todoroki valley

So, I am finall getting up my photos for Todoroki Valley. I went in June, so this is Todoroki Valley in June. I imagine it must be absolutely gorgeous in the autumn, so would recommend. I used to live really close to this place but I wasn’t aware of that fact at the time. Instead, I waited until I was living on the other side of Tokyo to visit; It only took over an hour to get there. It was a really beautiful place though and I would recommend going if you’re living in the city and want some peace ...

It’s the park…again!

It’s the park…again, but the clue was in the title.  I love this park.  We went at dusk this time and it was so peaceful and tranquil.  We saw a mummy turtle preparing to lay eggs which was really special and we saw lots of other turtles and carp.  It’s also free which sort of does make it hard not to like.

That was our weekend, how about yours? ...

jr tokyo wide pass: day 2

Day two and look at the weather!  It was glorious.  We went to Izu Peninsula and we got off at Ito first. We wandered to the beach but there wasn’t much going on.  It was very peaceful just listening to the waves and not at all crowded.

We had ...

jr tokyo wide pass: day 1

Hello!

I hope you are all well (she says to herself).  But yes, I am well.  It was Golden Week last week in Japan. We left it too late to book anywhere abroad.  Well, we could have but it would have cost a small fortune, so we just had a what’s that recent buzzword again?, oh, staycation.  We got a JR Tokyo Wide Pass (and that’s JR east which caused a lot of confusion for us – Dear JR, maybe put east in the pass’ actual name?).  So, where did we go?

We went to Kawaguchiko on Wednesday ...

april memories
I’ve been really terrible for blogging recently, I apologise for that.  I haven’t been tending to take many photos either whilst I’ve been out and about but I’ll share the ones that I have taken.

I started off the month by going to see the cherry blossoms (you can see more pictures here if you would like).  This below two photos are at Yasukuni Shrine.

Then these were taken at The Imperial Palace, at the moat.  The queue for the boats was ridiculous.

 
The new Scott & Rivers album came out in April (go buy it if ...
