Tokyo

I’m having a very good time in Tokyo. We’ve done lot’s of sightseeing but for me it wasn’t really boring like usual because I had my camera with me. You will start seeing new Photos appear in Flickr when I get back because I left my cable to upload Photos in Bangkok. Which set should I put  my Tokyo Photos in?

It’s really cold here but I like it that way, because the air is so fresh and it is really really clean air.

Tokyo is basically the opposite of Bangkok, everything is in order and the sidewalks are very very wide and most places in the city are very convenient for blind people.

In Tokyo all drivers totally respect all the pedestrians and are very careful towards them. Even as a biker they would be extremely careful of you even if you were bicycling in the middle of the road against the traffic direction, but if you did that in Thailand you would be dead within 2 minutes.

Japan is a very high-tech country. You should see the Toilets! They have a heated toilet seats and next to the Toilet seat they have a whole load of buttons with which you can get water sprayed at your but and then get it dryed again with a dryer that comes out of the toilet. I haven’t really been brave enough to press any of them yet because the buttons are in Japanese.

We usually travel by underground train there are 13 underground train lines and many many other train lines in Tokyo, but in Bangkok there are 3 BTS lines and 1 MRT line.

This is the view out of my dad’s breakfast room. The picture is not so good quality because I left my camera cable in Bangkok so I took a picture with the camera of our laptop.

    Well I think that you are having a really good time and I think that you are really enjoying it. Besides, you went to Japan for what reason again?

    You are not staying in Japan forever are you? 😦

      It’s great that you have done a blog posting about your Tokyo trip… thanks for staying in touch with us.

      Those toilets are pretty weird! Do you think they are sustainable?

    I also went to Japan before and I love the toilets because when you sit on it it feels really warm and comfortable! 😀

        I agree with you that Japan is really clean. Their roads, airport etc. are really clean.
