Syamsid Journey : From Malaysia To Japan : Episode 7 ( Tokyo Tower - Tsichiura town - Rainbow Bridge )

   
okay people.. the seventh edition of journey to japan is now continued with a visit to one of japan’s icon –tokyo tower. standing at 333 meters, the tower was highlighted as a xmas tree since christmas was actually today. Haha..and of course yesterday was mauidur Rasul , and still I want to say "Selamat Menyambut Maulidur Rasul" anyhow, sorry for yet another delay in updates. been busy of late and this set of pics has been in queue for many many while. sorry for that.


taking off from the last entry, we parked our car here and walked up the hills to the beautiful tower. personally, tokyo tower is one of my favorite structure around the world – the iconic red and white tower.
 
  
it was nearing closing time and my friends didn’t want to go up seeing the city’s skyline. as for me, being here is more than enough. snapped lots of the tokyo tower’s pictures and i got loads of tokyo tower pics in my computer as well. i may be able to open a gallery soon


 
on the way back we walked through a small garden just near tokyo tower. the garden is beautiful and there were lots of cats roaming around (but there was no hint of cat poops around the garden. maybe they use the toilet). one more thing to note is that it is hard to see dogs’ poop and cats ‘ poop around tokyo ^^


 
this vending machine is the victim of some unlawful hands. but the model’s picture was intact from graffiti. lucky ! ^^


 
driving through roppongi hills. didn’t stop as it was kind of late and we were all busted after a long day. too bad i couldn’t take much pics of roppongi hills. it’s a popular spot to visit. and i did not able to take a stroll at ginza as well. though i was in japan/tokyo for a week, but it seems i couldn’t stick to my original plan. hehe.. i wish i could teleport to be able to reach to my destinations in less than a blink of an eye ^^



the morning came and here’s the bicycle parking at my friend’s apartment. no, i was not about to explore tsuchiura town with bikes.. 


tadaaaa! we rented a car from a local mazda rental shop for two days. last time when we visited mount fuji, it was the courtesy of my friend whom we were staying with. such a cool and kind dude. thanks a million!! the whole two days rent was aboy 12,600 yen. kinda cheap.. it’s a cute car hehehe. the yellow license plate is used for k-car category.


 
mazda carol at our service!!


 
entering tokyo and was greeted by gloomy sky and tokyo’s sky tree. the weather sucks.. but we have to continue no matter what ^^


 
buildings just along the river side. tokyo’s sky tree is so tall that it can be seen from anywhere in tokyo (unless a tall building blocks it from where you stand ^^)


 
a glimpse of another tokyo’s icon – the rainbow bridge. what’s so rainbow about it? mr. wiki got something for you : The Rainbow Bridge (レインボーブリッジ Reinbō burijji?) is a suspension bridge crossing northern Tokyo Bay between Shibaura Pier and the Odaiba waterfront development in Minato, Tokyo, Japan. Construction started in 1987 and was completed in 1993. The bridge is 798 metres (2,618 ft) long with a main span of 580 metres (1,903 ft).[1] Officially called the “Shuto Expressway No. 11 Daiba Route – Port of Tokyo Connector Bridge,” the name “‘Rainbow Bridge” was decided by the public. The towers supporting the bridge are white in color, designed to harmonize with the skyline of central Tokyo seen from Odaiba. There are lamps placed on the wires supporting the bridge, which are illuminated into three different colors, red, white and green every night using solar energy obtained during the day. there you go – the rainbow bridge ^^
 

 
the gloomy morning folks crossing the street. it was not early morning by the way. it was around 10 am..


 
the river banks that you can see in most of anime and j-drama. if only i could hold my camera higher, you might be able to see it clearly. but the k-car is so small and cute, so the bridge side rail blocks the view ><


 
Mr. wiki has something to say about this pic : SoftBank Corp. (ソフトバンク株式会社 Sofutobanku Kabushiki-gaisha) is a Japanese telecommunications and Internet corporation, with operations in broadband, fixed-line telecommunications, e-Commerce, Internet, broadmedia, technology services, finance, media and marketing, and other businesses. SoftBank was established in Tokyo, Japan on September 3, 1981, and had a market capitalization of approximately US$43.52 billion at March 2011.


 
this is the normal road-side store looks like. vending machine is everywhere and most probably in my 100 taken pictures, they (the vending machines) will appear at least 25 times ^^


 
and so we have arrived at yokohama. tall modern glass buildings all around.. it sucks the weather was this bad.. *sigh*…


 
we found a parking spot and this picture is taken on the upper level pedestrian walkways. see that bus? if you watch j-drama kuitan, the bus appears in one of the episodes hehe. anyway, kuitan was filmed mainly in yokohama. so this will look familiar to those who watched that j-drama.

      about the film "Lost in Translation" is not American - Japanese love story., The girl (Scarlett Johannson) is a young American girl too, and the man (Bill Murray) is an aging actor, and they befriended in Japan., I watched it a few months back ;p

    Nice travel entry, Tokyo is indeed mesmerizing. I visited several tourist spots around Tokyo last year during spring time, didn't have the chance to rent a car and drive though, just used the bus and the monorail train for transportation. Thanks for dropping by mah bloggie, feel free to check out my blog entries regarding my Tokyo trip ;3
