First post

So, title says it all. I’ll try my best at this blogging thing so be nice, okay?

It’s been a little more than two weeks since I arrived in Tokyo, and so far everything’s good. The dormitory and my room are nice (there will be pictures when I’ve tidied it up a bit) and the other students I’ve met seem nice. Classes don’t start until the 26th, so except for a few orientation meetings at school we’ve had plenty of time to just do whatever we want. I’ve been around to a few places, meeting friends, nothing special really but it’s been a lot of fun. However, I’m looking forward to Monday just to get some structure in life :)
Here are some pictures from places I've been the past weeks. Sorry about them not being so good, but I'm not a photographer :) Anyway, first up is Asakusa, with the Tokyo Sky Tree (which this blog is named after). I really want to go up there once it opens.


I also went to Meiji Jinguu, a shrine in Harajuku, for the first time. It was really calm and peaceful, despite it being in the middle of Tokyo. I liked it very much. Some pictures:

So, these are some of the places I've been so far.

Finally, just a note on the weather. It's been really hot and humid, and I still haven't gotten used to it. However, Japan is currently hit by a typhoon, so yesterday was quite cool and it rained a bit, much like Swedish summer :) Today the typhoon is apparently much closer, because it's full storm outside. Hopefully it'll pass by quickly. 

I'll try to update as often as possible, but seeing as it took me two weeks to write anything at all I'll make no promises. And I'll try to make funnier posts..

  1. Ser att du varit vid Den Gyllene Bajskorven (I'm not kidding, den kallas så) :) Meiji Jingu är ett underbart ställe. Helt fantastiskt att japanerna lyckas få sina centrala parker och tempel så tysta trots att de ligger mitt i stan.

    Lyckades du ta dig fram längs Takeshita Doori? Det var verkligen packat varje gång jag var där! xD

  2. Haha, har hört flera namn på den där... grejen. Udda.
    Vi var i Harajuku en söndag, så det var rätt packat. Men trots det lyckades en shintoprocession och ett brudpar i rickshaw knö sig fram :)

  3. Genom Takeshita Doori?! På en söndag?! O.o

  4. Japp. Men vi andra fick ju typ backa in i närmaste affär :)

  5. Whoa, Meiji Jinguu! Natsukashii!!!

  6. Jaha så har jag läst första delen. Den var väl helt okej o inte alls så jättetråkig. SKRIV OM DAGBOK NU!!!
