Day 196… Righty-ho… today its more amazing japan tomsee so its off to see Skytree Tower, Tokyos talent building. And I find heaps there to do… on the way I spot a house/shop made to look exactly like a boat and on it is a conveyor-belt slide for kids, which I try of course. It’s interesting, and fast as all heck with no way to slow down since the whole thing is well oiled conveyor rollers propelling you along. Then it up the tower, all 674 meters for Asli astounding view. On the way I invest a little yen in a Hello Kitty charity and win a handbag. I know who will be getting that back home! After i get a tasty as heck Cold Rock-esque ice cream before I hop on the train again to see Ueno. The ice cream was a deal for rainy days… rainbow fun… a small scoop of each flavour for only ¥500… choc, vanilla, berry, bubblegum… then the Japanese flavours which were actually good… green tea, taro, sweet yam and sweet cheese. All with some vanilla sponge on the bottom… nice! Here the town of Ueno has a huge park that houses most of Tokyo’s museums and galleries. I head to a few temples to collect some amazing caligraphy before I visit the zoo to see PANDAS!! then its off home.
