People-Watching is More Fun Than Festivals

May 16, 2010

Went to see the sanja matsuri at Asakusa yesterday. I’m not into these types of things and I’m very claustrophobic in crowded streets so instead I had lots of fun with our new zoom lens~

Tokyo Disneyland – Pirates of the Caribbean

June 10, 2009

I really hope that our pop culture has come to the point where this ride needs absolutely no explanation whatsoever.

Tokyo Disneyland – Pooh’s Hunny Hunt

June 4, 2009

Arguably the most popular ride in all of Tokyo Disneyland, rivaled only by the holiday version of The Haunted Mansion. The wait time for Pooh’s Hunny Hunt, on average, is 2 and a half hours and Fast Passes usually run out for the day before lunchtime.

Tokyo Disneyland – Electrical Parade: Dreamlights

June 3, 2009

Tokyo Disneyland – Queen of Hearts Banquet Hall

Okay, so most people who know me are quite aware that I have a slight obsession with the Mad Tea Party from Alice in Wonderland. There’s something about the style, the colors and the complete and total absurdity of it that I absolutely love. It’s also the first ride that I have any memory of (along with the famous Dumbo ride).

Too bad the tent area itself isn’t that large, because that means fewer photos…

Good Ol’ Ueno

March 25, 2009

Ueno is where our usual hotel is, so the area between the hotel and the train station is extremely familiar to us. I was killing time waiting for the hair salon to open ($70 straight perms!) so I just walked around and took photos as I went. It must have been like 9 am, so there weren’t that many people out and about outside.

I rather like morning photo walks, to be honest (as if going to Shibuya at 6 am wasn’t a clue).
