The next morning.

While I was waiting for my friend, I went to Kamakura 鎌倉 to take a picture that I long for taking.

A comic Slam Dunk made 鎌倉高校前路口 Kamakura Goukou Mae a famous spot. Every day a lot of tourists come here to take picture and it had already caused inconvenience to the people living there. I saw that groups of tourists  (sadly mainly Chinese) come and go and each of them standing in the junction without caring about the traffic, which is very dangerous.

I waited for quite long to have a shot without people jamming on the road.......

You see from the second picture that the city government gets someone to regulate the traffic but his main duty is to warn the tourists not to get in the junction during green night.

After that, I walked to Tokyo station and on the way I took this picture. The modern business center on the left and the traditional old castle on the right, separated by the moat.

Spot no. 3, the Edo Castle, i.e the nowadays Royal Palace. This one is big but the historical significance is undoubtedly the Seimon Stonebridge 二重橋.

The next spot is Japan Bridge.

Not only because this is an old bridge dated back to Menji period, but because this is the road mark of Tokyo, i.e. the measuring point for distance between cities.

My wife was back to Hong Kong on 5 May and my primary schoolmates would arrive on 6 May.

Therefore I had a day on my own. I decided to go to some spots that has some meanings to me but may not for others.

The first spot I wanted to have a look was Shibuya crossing, the most busiest junction in the world. It is really amazing. The transition of the traffic light takes about one minute but you can see people rushing around. They can manage to finish the crossing just before the cars start crossing the road.

A night scene in Ginza. That's concluded my trip with my sister in law and my mom in law.

The date was 4 May 2019. The new emperor came to accept the people's greeting so Ginza area was assigned as people walkway. Therefore I can stand on the middle of the usually busy road to take picture.

After that we went to a coffee shop, where John Lennon and Yoko Ono once were sitting.

The next day we went to the old Tsukiji 舊築地市場. Last time I was there was in 2009. Still busy and we had our lunch there. I found the prices were up a lot.

Hmmmm long time not seeing this seafood trolley.

This is our menu. Omakase of course. You can only have what they offer. The wine list is quite comprehensive.

Food are delicious, it is up to its value although a bit pricey.
