the following saturday, i went to yasukuni again (can't help it, class tour)
but before that i had a macdonald's breakfast with stella (cos we got the coupons for 350yen a set). love the mcgriddles!!
so sorry for the repeated yasukuni photos but i promise it gets interesting later :D
ooh there was a performance going on too. but i really didn't understand it. there's just japanese music and some weird ungraceful movements. i think it was some kind of ritual. i was just interested in their costumes.
there was also a bazaar going on. too bad we didn't have time to look on longer.
who's that hiding in the box?!
saw a weird person (apparently from some cult) trying to recruit people. stella says it may be the religion where thy can only marry within the same religion. yikes. sounds city harvest to me.
since it was 12, stella and i decided to go to a more interesting place - todai! tokyo university! yes THE tokyo university.tokyo daigaku, hence todai (i just knew it then and there too). organized by the ladies.
i actually didn't know that this door was that famous. it seems to be a leftover monument from the meiji (or was it tokugawa?) era.
we then went into the medical block upper floors to have lunch. look at the view from there! you can see tokyo dome!
and of cos the entire campus itself.
the place where we had our lunch.
after lunch, we were given a tour around the campus.
passed by a football field with the soccer-ers wearing all pink. kawaii!
and i bet you didn't know, there's a forest inside the campus... wow.
felt like mitake when we climbed the slopes again...
so through the forest, we emerged in a victorian like haven
the place seriously felt so europe.
then we reached the clock tower. pretty!
we then tracked our way back to the entrance. lovely lamp.
feels damn weird to have a modern looking building here.
i love the buildings so much! they are all so authentically ancient looking! all the way i kept thinking how wonderful it'll be if i could take my cosplay photoshoots here. :(
and of cos before we go... souvenirs!
lego buildings of the school!
and that concludes todai.
