箱根 * Hakone: III

The last set of photos from Hakone, I promise!

These are from the last day of my trip. I woke up at 6am (!!) to go for a walk before my friends woke up and was able to get a few pictures as the sun was just coming through the clouds.

  1. I love this blog! you take such good pictures. it’s like you go on different adventures everyday.

  2. Allison, Love your blog and your photos! I just came back from a week in Tokyo, and I’m loving everything Japanese.

    In case you haven’t looked it up yet, the statue in picture #10 is a “tanuki” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanuki). The statue in your photo definitely has the prominent feature between it’s legs. haha

    • Haha ohhhh so thats what it is!! I’ve heard of those before! So funny..
      How was your trip?? What did you do in Tokyo? I miss it!!

      • The trip was incredible~! It was my 2nd time in Tokyo, but I was able to explore a lot more of the city this time. I stayed at a hotel in Akasaka, because my buddy was also in Tokyo at the same time for work, and his corporate apartment was in the neighborhood.

        Tokyo neighborhoods I explored: Akasaka, Ikebukuro, Roppongi, Omotesando, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ginza, Odaiba, Asakusa, Ueno.

        Notable sights and landmarks: Namjatown (Sunshine City mall), Takeshita-dori, Meiji-jingu shrine, Yoyogi park, Hachiko statue (Shibuya), Tokyu Hands store, Tsukiji market, Toyota MegaWeb, Imperial Palace gardens, Senso-ji temple, Ueno park, Tokyo National Museum.

        Day trips outside of Tokyo: Kamakura (loved the temples and the beaches!), Fuji-san (tried climbing it, but didn’t get very far up because of rain).

        I think I am going to make it a goal to live in Japan for at least a year sometime in my life…

        How does it feel to be back home in the Pacific NW? I’ve been to Seattle many times to visit family friends, and I really like the city. I have yet to visit Portland, but I’ve heard so many great things about it!
