Having friends over

How the time flies! It's already almost two weeks since my friends left, and tomorrow I'm leaving to Taipei. I rememer booking the flights and waiting for my friends to come like it was yesterday!

So it is time to post some photos from Tokyo before new adventures arrives. My friends Krisse and Noora came to Japan for short 10 days trip. First we spent few days in Kyoto visiting Fushimi inari and just walking around, but then we took the night bus to Tokyo.

First day we just walked around.
And learnd how to use the metro maps ect.
While waiting to be able to check in to our hostell we strolled around Akihabara.
In the promised land of games and machines.
In the evening we headed to Asakusa to see the shrines.
And after deciding not to go to the Sky Tree, we naturalle ended up there.
Waiting for the elevator to take us up in the air.
The vibe was just like from scifi movie or a space ship.
The night view over Tokyo.
Inside the tree.

Tokyo Tower where I went last time looked quite small from this angle.
The next day Yooka joined us and with her we went to see an interesting exhibition.

While we enjoyed the exhibition Noora and Krisse were shopping in Shibuya.
After that we had a dinner and wandered around the city.

And went home with these sleepy tired people.
The next day was shopping shopping shopping. And great looking places.

The lime green stairs were cool.
In the evening we went to Odaiba, the city of future.
Behind the Diver City there is a big robot with smoke machines and light show. Only in Japan.

Last picture of us before a long night at a very nice club. We danced till morning and had time to sleep for two hours before checking out from the hostel.
And because some bus ticket accident we ended up taking a shinkansen back to Kyoto.
And saw. mt Fuji on the way.
Back in Kyoto we went to Kiyomizudera on a very sunny nice day.

And after a bit more shopping it was time for my friends to head back to Finland :(
It was so nice to have them here and break the every day routines. It felt wierd to speak so much finnish :)

But the next adventure will take place in Taiwan. And soon my parents will come here too, so I have a lot of fun ahead!
