Tokyo Metro is an integral part of the daily lives of Tokyo inhabitants. Without Tokyo Metro – the whole Tokyo will be in a grid lock. Despite mountains of people walking on the street, the commute between longer distances are done mostly thru Tokyo Metro. I have not taken Tokyo buses before but the Metro is my usual mode of transport whenever I am in Tokyo. The following are collection of my photos during my solo trip in Tokyo this year.
I am definitely a coffee addict. Looking at the amount coffee that I consume – I do spend a lot of money on coffee. When I was in Japan – I did go to Starbucks almost every single morning because they do have very good brewed coffee – or Coffee Of The Day. Same goes when I got back to Malaysia – I continue to have brewed coffee whenever I have time to get a cup of Joe early in the morning. As I am an early bird – most definitely it is almost like a daily affair. One thing about brewed coffee, it gotta be fresh off the brew otherwise it will taste like shit.
Now back to blue bottle. I have never heard of them before, but on the last day, while chilling by the roadside waiting for the time when I need to go to take my train to Narita, I saw this coffee shop near Shinjuku. So many people were queueing up for it. So I could not help it but to google for the brand – Blue Bottle. I couldn’t help it but to see this article.
So – I quickly pack up and rush. Thank god – the queue was not so bad then (so I think). What I did not know what that the queue was just for the order, and then you had to wait while they make your coffee. It was a good 15 mins before I had my coffee. Anyway – the coffee was really good I must say. One of the best that I’ve tasted in Japan. I will definitely come here again. I also got a chocolate saffron cookie. Oh emmm geee. It was so good.
Here are some of the photos that I took while waiting for my coffee.
I am missing Japan to be honest – it has been almost 4 weeks since I am back from Japan. Here is one of the best photo I shot with my phone. It was shot using my iPhone X 🙂
The view is from Tokyo Tower. Its not that far from the city centre, but all things considered – it was a long journey. There are a lot of things you can do in Tokyo Tower but I guess for me given that I am on tight budget, I just do what I think I need, which is to see Tokyo from the Top.
I could not resist but do this ideating shot of “touching” the tip of the tower. Its wasn’t easy given that I was trying to adjust the camera and my hand. Clearly my hand-eye coordination is extremely bad. Very bad indeed.
The photo above is one that really making feel like pissing in my pants. I have a severe fear of height. To be honest even with the “safe” environment – I am really scared of that.
Anyway – if you do go to Japan, Tokyo specifically – do visit Tokyo Tower. On a good day, you can see Mount Fuji 🙂
