Managed to squeeze some time after lunch to take a walk in Inokashira Koen + a little around Mitaka area ^^ (28 Nov 2011, Monday)

I recalled the day was cloudy and grey but I was glad it wasn’t raining ^^; Much of the trees are still in process of changing colour :) My main reason to check out Inokashira Koen was the adorable swan boats! :P I wanted to take photos of them! lol

on 18th Nov 2011 (friday) we decided to go to a few places in closer proximity within Tokyo, so we got a day pass. We ordered a 7 day JR pass exchange when we were not in Japan yet, but we have not activated it yet as we were intending to use it to get out of Tokyo on the shinkansen.

Getting a 730 yen day pass (which you can get from the ticketing machine — they have an English option as well) was a better option than just blindly swiping our suica lol!

Went around looking for a replacement point and shoot camera, and decided that’s not the way to blow my money ^^;

A couple cameras we were eyeing, cost almost half as much more to buy it in Japan than Canada with the strong yen against Canadian… =_=;;;
