Day 3 – Temple at Ueno

12 06 2008

Everyday commute to the main hub.

Stairs to temple at Ueno.

Entrance to Temple

On another note, things I’ve learned so far.
-People hardly drink water here. When they do, they buy these bottles which are identical to drinks.

-American fast food restaurants here actually taste ten times better (just expect smaller portions)

-You can’t take pictures inside arcades,stores, etc.

-Having comfortable shoes is important for all the walking (no, I’m serious!)

-If you a white girl and happen to be dressed(going to school in Japan) with a school uniform people will literally stare at you and make all weird faces.

There a ton more (every minute you learn something new here you didn’t expect).

Do people leave their manga behind in the train? I saw somewhere that they leave it like people do with newspapers.

I’ve seen some mangas left in the upper shelfs so my guess is they do leave them behind.
