Memories of Japan - 2010-08-07 - 2. There's no way Japan can be this hot!

After an uncountable number of hours flying in a plane, we arrived to Narita airport. Finally were in Japan! A new day just started and we were exhausted, couldn't sleep too much at plane. After the controls and pick up our baggage, we went to exchange some euros for yens. Later go to take the train that took us to the Ueno Station. And now finally in Tokyo!

We came out of the station and... What's this heat!? We just discovered hot Japanese climate at summer. With lots of hours without sleep and with an insane heat, we went to our first hotel in Tokyo. It was situated at North of Asakusa. We arrived, left our suitcases and went to have lunch.

Our first restaurant in Japan.

Our first lunch in Japan was in a small restaurant that almost all that they only had was yakisoba and takoyaki. Well, actually they also had some other "yaki" things. All was delicious, our first meal in Japan!

After lunch, we took a walk for the surrounding area near the hotel. Were waiting that was time to do the check in. We visited some shrines in that walk, knowing nothing about them.

When was time, came back to the hotel. And when went to our rooms, discovered some problems in them. In one, the shower didn't work, and the other had leaking water on the ceiling! Well, we went to claim and they offered move us to another hotel, but from the next day. We accepted it and came back to our rooms to take a shower.

Mapo Tofu!

Later, we went out again. This time took a walk through Asakusa. Looked for a place to have dinner. And that dinner was special, because was the first time that I tasted Mapo Tofu! Yes, when I saw it, couldn't choose another plate. So I enjoyed a lot my spicy Mapo Tofu.

After dinner came back to the hotel. And finally, after lots of hours, was time to go to sleep.
