Day 4: venturing shinjuku and going to asakusa
This day we went to a park right near our hostel which at first I was a bit apprehensive about (mainly because we were paying to go to a park….. Really?) but it ended up being really awesome—thanks emily for making us go. It was a huge, beautifully maintained garden. There were lots of people scattered around with easels painting the scenery, schools on field trips and people picnicking. It was really beautiful. I loved being in the middle of a beautiful park with streams running through it and seeing rows of big yellow trees yet at the same time being able to see the Tokyo tower in the distance.
After the park we went to do some shopping in shinjuku, found yet another excessively large forever 21 to spend at least an hour in, then went and had probably the best miso-ramen I’ve ever had.
Then we got our suitcases and made the journey across town to our next destination of the second half of our trip, asakusa. Nothing really eventful happened once we got there, we were pretty tired, had dinner at a boat sushi place then walked around the town a bit.
