This contribution is really very short and is supposed to deliver additional pictures about the city.Continue Reading
The last thing I did with my family before I had to leave because of work, was to go with the Shinkansen to Odawara in Kanagawa Prefecture. There is also the Odawara Castle.Continue Reading
This time we had a look at the Tokyo SkyTree, which is a radio tower and at the moment with 634 m the second highest building in the world. The tower has two viewing platforms, one at 350m and one at 450m. We only had a look from those at 350 m, first because the entrance fee is a little high and second because we suspected that the weather was not so good and the horizon would be hazy, so that we could not have seen so far. If we had, then we would have bought an extension on the plain and would have gone up to the 450m. But it was hazy on the horizon… There are 4 high-speed elevators, each designed according to one of the four seasons and if I remember rightly 10 m/s reach.Continue Reading
This time there are a few repetitions with Akihabara and the Imperial Garden. However, I have a few new pictures and the Imperial Garden was now temporarily open to an area that is usually not open to the public.Continue Reading
I recently received visitors from Germany. A (loud) part of the family followed me to Japan. At least for a vacation. But I was allowed to get on vacation, but only for a part, because I have too much work and I even had an internal presentation this time (but I couldn’t foresee it), therefore, I wanted to return (but I could have avoided it). I will also publish a few more articles about visited places after this article. Even though my family took the whole thing very easy and our visit efficiency was therefore very low…;)Continue Reading
Due to a conference in Shinjuku I have been in Tokyo and even had some time to look around. So I went to the Meiji Shrine because it was not so far from the Shinjuku station and the conference place. However, I have to correct the title, as the shrine is already in the city district Shibuya.Continue Reading
Yes, I finally managed to climb the mountain Kunō again. If you should remember (probably not), there was a section that was closed and I had looked for another way. Now in the meantime I was there again and had searched behind the closed part and had come quite far after mistakes and confusions, but this ended with a little embarrassment, because it got dark and I had nothing with me;)Continue Reading
あけましておめでとう！ (=akemashite omedetou). Happy New Year to you. And who thought: “Shit, he’s still alive”. Well, I can’t and don’t want to change it. I’m rather locked up in the laboratory, so that I don’t have time for new things and besides that, I have done for myself the holiday stress at home in Germany over Christmas and New Year. It was stressful, but necessary after more than one and a half years here in the (for us) Far East.
But now to the actual contribution, I was now for the second time in Tokyo, Odaiba.
