Strolling The Streets of Tokyo; Virtual Tour in Japan
Hello everyone! Yes, I know, it has been quite a long while since I updated my blog. I have been pretty busy and for the same reason I have not been traveling much — unfortunately for both you, my dear guests, and me 🙂 But I believe I am coming back (at least for now) with a few interesting posts. Tokyo, Japan, is our today’s destination. We will take a virtual tour around the city via the pictures taken by a dear friend of mine.
He has recently (a couple of months ago, to be more precise) visited Tokyo, Japan, and graciously agreed to share some of his pictures with me so that I could publish them in my blog. Needless to say, he was very impressed with his visit to Japan. I believe it was his second time being in there.
Anyways, long story short, I am not certain of exact locations as to where these pictures are taken — except the fact that they are all in or around Tokyo. And I am not going to pretend that I know well enough to talk about the city. Instead, I will just share the pictures and leave you along with the visual material.
(Yes, this is a kind of hotel/motel room. People actually do sleep in these “things”, whatever their actual name is. It seems cute, that’s for sure. I wouldn’t mind trying it 🙂 )
The important part is that these are unedited pictures, and they are not professional photos shooting only the most beautiful and most popular places of the city. No, they will display the everyday state of Tokyo, maybe even a bit of a workaday lives of the inhabitants.

I hope you all will enjoy your strolling the streets of Tokyo through my friends camera. Yes, let me make a big deal out of it: We’re all grateful to my dear friend. And yes, I will be posting more and again through his camera the photos will be.
(They seemed like vendors to me, but I think my friend said it was a parade or something. In some countries/cities, you’d see such stands where people sell food at night. Though, I am not sure if this is it. In any case: streets of Tokyo, as promised)
(OK! Technically, this is not Tokyo; this is around Hakone, and about an hour and a half away from Tokyo. A high ground for visitors, tourists, up in the mountains. Seems exciting!)
