We woke up this morning after our first night in the Youth Hostel at Tokyo, to spend the day
At Disney land. After three trains, we arrived at Tokyo Disneyland where dreams really come true.
We went on fast, exciting and magical rides such as : The Big Thunder Mountain, Space Moutain,
Madhatter Teacups and our favorite ride ; Splash Mountain where we got saturated!
At 6:30, we enjoyed a huge, colorful firework display and a light show featuring all the Disney
Characters, with a special Christmas feature.
Overall it was a magical and a day full of fun that all girls thoroughly enjoyed.

A 9:00am start had us ready hop on many trains with our new tour guide, Shoji.
We walked to the train station where we hopped on and off many trains while
Also following her bright yellow finger, trying not to get trampled. Our first
Stop was Sensoji, Asakusa. 浅草寺でお香の煙でお清めをし、溜まってきた1円玉と
5円玉をお賽銭に。It was at the Asakusa temple where we were finally able to
put our 1 and 5 yens to good use. Using these we could call on the gods to
fulfil our wishes.We also had the opportunity to witness a traditional Shinto wedding.
We all did it. That’s all for now.

The group was actually revisiting Harajuku today – we were granted an extra couple of
Hours to have a really good look around. Harajyuku can be considered a heavily
Fashionable district, and extreme in that respect. The street paving its way through
The district is ridiculously packed, dotted with quirky characters and their striking
outfits.Harajuku is also renowned for its crepes.
It was great returning there today because it is so crowded, and often when returning
to places you have visited before, you pick up on the things you didn’t before. Returning
highlighted the smaller stores which were actually selling really gorgeous kimonos and
calligraphy printed shirts.
Navigating a busy district can be a bit exhausting, so towards the end of the day, we all
Headed back to the hostel. AND we had gelato. It was a gift from the Italian restaurant who
Gaveus lunch on a previous tour, which was very lovely of them.
See you soon,
