土曜日のお散歩 saturday walk

Posted on: February 6, 2010


today, even though it was reported to be really cold today, i thought i should probably start making use of my spring break, and went out today on a walk >w< looking through my lonelyplanet, i remembered that i haven’t actually been to 靖国神社 yasukuni shrine, so i took the train to 市谷 ichigaya!


random flowers on the roadside


they were lilies!


法政大学 hosei university against the blue, blue sky


the wind was really strong after i got off the train! i THINK this is the 神田川 kanda river (not too sure since everything flows into everything here lol)


the sun was out but it was so cold… and windy! i couldn’t walk properly because the wind was pushing me back and i actually had to hold on to a lamp post so i wouldn’t fall over lol i bet i looked like some evil spirit because of my hair


i love taking meaningless photos like these


i’m so happy this turned out so well! ♥


hiro arriving at yasukuni shrine!


the main inner shrine. you can still see hosei university in the background lol


there was snow on the ground. i wonder if it snowed here the previous night?


another shot at the main hall


close-up of the snow! it looks just like ais kacang =w=


yay! the wind was messing up my hair real bad hahah!


somehow the sky seems limitless…


when you walk further down, this is what you see – the huge stone torii gate


it was still fairly early (earlier than i expected, actually) so i decided to walk around a bit :3 i ended up at 九段 kudan after a while, after walking past the 武道館 budoukan


the letter K reminds me of many wonderful things – kevin, kagurazaka and of course, kazunari


shochan poster at able! ♥


i love the reflections on the buildings. why are japanese buildings so shiny?!


this was really random, a shrine-like thing at a cross junction hahah


>w< ♥ what other countries have names like this on their highway signboards hahah! i love japan! ♥


another huge poster of shochan spotted, this time in kagurazaka!


my heart did a little skip-hop-jump at this but as i was getting off the train, i couldn’t get a clearer photo of it >w<


the shrine near my dorm, all new and sparkly


the police box at the corner beside the shrine. number of deaths and casualties from today’s traffic accidents ‘_’

i saw the plum blossoms at someone’s house starting to bloom!!!


the evil patisserie around the corner that tempts me with the awesome smell and sights everytime i walk past 😦


i also received the 5×10 charm from nagoya that i traded with someone on lj in the mail today! it’s super pretty!!! ♥♥♥
