Landed at Japan (in Ueno)

We have stopped at Ueno on our first day (With a pretty tired mind and body - as usual, you will not get a good sleep on the flight). Decided to went to Asakusa since it is closer and I guess there are a few attractions that we could go to at that same area. :) (Yupe there are like Keminarimon, Sensoji Temple as well as Nakamise shopping street there.)

More Photos after the jump...

As usual we pretty much go around the Japan area via their train transit. :)

And finally back and check into the Ueno hotel. (yeah it is one of the window at the hotel lobby)

Guess that's all for day 1. I think I will continue my posting when I am back to Penang. I think it is better that way. I still didn't feel that comfortable doing my photo processing on this laptop. ~:"| (The level confidence that I have on the color accuracy on the screen is not that high actually, hehe...) :"P

Anyway, I hope that you all will enjoy the photos so far. And I hope that everybody is alright at Malaysia. :") Cheers.

For those who are interested, the whole series could be view here. :)
