Japan Day Four: Imperial Rule (19.04.12)

Posted: 19.04.07 in Blogging

I was ill. The soup in combination with the alcohol took its toll and I was sick. Weiran didn’t have much sympathy – he wanted to be out and about. Eventually we did get out, going to the Imperial Palace gardens in central Tokyo. They were ok, but they weren’t spectacular. There was a lot of cherry blossom and traditional Japanese trees, of which I have some envy for! They are similar to maple trees but have spectacular red leaves. I took plenty of photos, as did Weiran, of the plants, the moat, the rock gardens and the surrounding buildings.

I was still feeling pretty bad when we went to the electronics district of Japan, namely Akihabara. After waltzing in and out of steaming hot electronics stores, we went to have some food at an Italian place. I ordered an omelette but I could only manage a few tiny pieces at the end of my fork. Weiran bought a new Sigma lens for his Nikon D50 while I went home and recovered slightly.

    You got it wrong on both points, I have a Nikon D80 and it was a Tamron lens!
