By: cocoaby

I went to the "Kurihama Hana no kuni"(Kurihama flower garden).
Many cosmoses are blooming in this season every year.
I heard it was so beautiful.
However many cosmoses had been blown away by typhoons this year.
Today is "Bunka no hi"(Culture Day), it is national holiday.
November 3rd was originally celebrated as a Meiji emperor's birthday.
It's also the day when the government grants cultural-service awards to people who have contributed to Japanese culture. And at the Imperial Palace the emperor confers orders of Cultural Merit to people who've rendered special services for the development of Japanese culture.

Tokyo, Japan - 9th November 2013

By: cocoaby

I went to a very popular place Asakusa.

Asakusa's main attraction is Sensoji, a very popular Buddhist temple, built in the 7th century.

Kaminarimon is the first of two large entrance gates leading to Sensoji Temple. First built more than 1000 years ago, it is the symbol of Asakusa.
BUT!!! I could NOT see big lantern of Kaminarimon.
It was screen of big lantern.
The Nakamise shopping street leads from Kaminarimon to the temple grounds,
There are many people. The Nakamise shopping street stretches over approximately 250 meters from Kaminarimon to the main grounds of Sensoji Temple. It is lined by more than 50 shops, which offer local specialties and the usual array of tourist souvenirs.

Sensoji ("Senso" is an alternative reading for Asakusa and "ji" means temple) is Tokyo's most famous and popular temple.
Built in the 7th century, it is also one of its oldest, although the current buildings are postwar reconstructions.

I could see Tokyo Skytree from here. The Tokyo Skytree  is a new television broadcasting tower and landmark of Tokyo. It is the centerpiece of the Tokyo Skytree Town in the Sumida City Ward, not far away from Asakusa. With a height of 634 meters (634 can be read as "Musashi", a historic name of the Tokyo Region), it is the tallest building in Japan and the second tallest structure in the world at the time of its completion.

And we can see beautiful carps in small Japanese garden.
There were a lot of foreign tourists there.

Odaiba is a popular shopping and entertainment district island in Tokyo Bay.

I went to "DiverCity Tokyo Plaza",This new shopping, dining and entertainment complex opened on last year.
Its most unique attraction is the Gundam Front Tokyo with various attractions and a shop centered around the anime series' robots. A "life sized" Gundam statue stands in front of the building. 

Then The headquarters of Fuji Television, one of Japan's private, nationwide TV stations.
You can see some exhibits on popular programs, buy Fuji TV goods at a shop and access the futuristic looking building's observatory deck housed in the sphere shaped part of the building.

At last, I can see called "The Rainbow Bridge", The Rainbow Bridge connects Odaiba to the rest of Tokyo. The two story bridge is an iconic symbol of the bay and is especially beautiful during its nightly illumination.
Houseboat has tour under the Rainbow Bridge.

You can see our tickets, blue ticket is The Yurikamome
The Yurikamome is an automated, elevated train with rubber tires, which connects Shimbashi Station on the JR Yamanote Line with all of Odaiba's attractions and Toyosu Station on the Yurakucho Subway Line.
Pink ticket is Tokyo 1 day pass ticket from Yokohama.

I had a fantastic time!

We went to the Kannonzaki park.
Here is a very nice park, but it is a very ghost spot where ghosts meet up in the midnight.
Ghost is called "Yuurei" or "Obake" in Japanese.
In this tunnel, ghost footsteps, strange white shadow, has been witnessed in particular.
I was afraid to walk through the tunnel. When ghost smiling when I looked up at the ceiling of the tunnel, What should I do?

Then, we went Kannonzaki lighthouse.
There is a oldest lighthouse in Japan. November 1 is the lighthouse anniversary to commemorate the start of construction date of this lighthouse.
Collapsed in the earthquake of twice, the current lighthouse is the third generation.

I found a cute yellow flower.
This flower is Isogiku(Chrysanthemum pacificum).

We went home and playing in a little seaside .

I heard a strange story from my host .
One day, 10 children went to play in this park .
But when someone count, 1, 2, 3... there are 11 children.
It is each other face that everyone knows .
At that time, photo was taken, you look at later ...It was 10 children.
But it was 11 children certainly in that place!
Would it Who was hell. Kyaaaaaaaaa! yiiiiiiiiipe!

It is said that you are hearing a scary story with ghost behind you.

Yokohama, Japan - 30th November 2013

By: cocoaby

I was a walk in the Yamashita Koen-dori avenue.
I think yellow ginkgo leaf is very beautiful .
Then we went to Yamashita Park.

Yamashita Park is a public park that stretches about 750 meters along Yokohama's waterfront.
The park is about a hundred meters wide, and consists mostly of open green space.
It was constructed after the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923.
Strolling through Yamashita Park, it is hard to miss the massive ocean liner in the water beside the promenade.
The ship is called the Hikawa Maru, and was first put into service in 1930 along the Yokohama-Vancouver and Seattle line.
The ship had first-class cabins that attracted the likes of the imperial family and Charlie Chaplin for the transpacific journey.
In 1960, after 30 years at sea, the ship was retired.
It now serves as a museum, with informative displays and interiors in the style of the 1930s.
You can see the black-tailed gull aligned on the chain.

I was able to see the Christmas tree beautifully decorated in Landmark Tower.
Christmas coming soon! I'm getting excited! Mom!
See you!
