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.

Then we trotted on our way to the Jogasaki Coast.  We got the train to the station, which by the way is a lovely station, all wooden and walked down from there.  It’s only about 20 minutes-ish so you don’t need to get the bus, it is also very well signposted.

We had ...

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.

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 ...

lazy sunday

Oh what a lovely Sunday, oh what a beautiful day.  It was such a nice Sunday!  We went down to the beachy bit at Kasai Rinkai Park and walked around.  There were a lot of people in the actual park bit but not so many on the beach which was nice as I’m not a huge fan of crowded places.  ‘Why do you live in Tokyo then?’  you might ask and the answer is, I don’t know.  Anyway, enjoy the pictures and make sure to visit if you haven’t already.

You can see Disney off in the distance.  The ...

ume matsuri

On Sunday, it was a beautiful day here.  Not as warm as Saturday but we had lovely clear, blue skies and it was the perfect weather to go and see the plum blossoms!  So we went to 亀戸天神 (Kameido-Tenjin Shrine).

These green signs led the way from the station.  The main road that we went along was pedestrianised which I loved.  Not sure if this is just an every so often thing or an every Sunday thing, but it felt very daring to be able to just walk in the middle of the road.

We got to the shrine and ...
