Yesterday I went to the National Museum of Nature and Science in Ueno, which was amazing! They had a number of fascinating geological exhibits. I could have spent all day there, but had to rush through most of it in three hours so I could make it back in time to check out of my hostel in Asakusa. Honestly, the one reason why I came to the museum was to see her… When I was with her, I couldn’t believe how small and apparently fragile she was. I was just imagining how the pilots that first flew her maybe felt when they saw their first Zero. I spent much too long here, just admiring her build and the courage it must have taken to fly her…
Here were some of my other favorite runner up exhibits:
After spending two nights in a divey capsule, I found a great deal for four nights in a luxury capsule at the Centurion Hotel in Akasaka, which is apparently one of the richest areas of West Tokyo. This part of town is much different than where I have been so far, it’s all high-rises and business people. There are also some large parks nearby; the sun is out again this week so I plan on doing some more exploring this week.
