Good Morning Ginza (March 20th, 2011)
March 20th found me just a couple stops away from where I was staying. I thought it would be a good idea not to stray too far away since my feet were not letting up on the pain. So I found myself in a part of Ginza.
Except it wasn't the Ginza that everyone advertises nor was I there to shop or see the famous extravagant architecture. Actually though, there was a building I did want to see. After two trips to Tokyo I was definitely going to try to see it even if there were nuclear melt-downs or hurting feet.
Once again the marvel of Spring showed it's self despite everything. Getting to see ume trees, that is plum trees in their full bloom was wonderful.
While the streets here were also bare of people, I noticed this Ginza store was open trying to sell it's wares. Life was not over here either.
But for me, what I was looking for was in the opposite direction down this empty street. Curious? I'll show you what it was in my post on Monday.
