The tallest tower in the world

1 May

Two days ago (April 29th) was the Japanese holiday 「昭和の日」 (“Showa Day”). It was a Sunday so the holiday was “observed” yesterday (April 30th).

It was the unofficial start of Golden Week.  Many people, like me, have to go to work today and tomorrow but had a day off yesterday and next Thursday til Sunday (May 3rd – May 6th) will be days off, too.
But some people get a full nine-day Golden Week holiday from April 29th – May 6th. A lot of those people take an overseas trip.

Click here to read my short FAQ about this holiday period…and also how some of the holidays changed names a few times fairly recently.

Anyways, as we had the day off yesterday and the weather was warm, we went to a 藤まつり (Wisteria Flower Festival) not far from the Tokyo Sky Tree.

Here are some of the photos I took:

      Did you see the Tokyo Sky Tree? When were you in Tokyo? (Are you still here in Japan?)

        Well, our holiday apartment was near the Sky tree so whenever we stepped out of our door we saw the Sky tree looming above us … I wish I was still in Japan! I was there in Febrero.

        Was your hotel in the Asakusa area of Tokyo? Or even closer to the Sky Tree?

        February is a cold time in Tokyo!

    Yes! We did see the Sky Tree. Mom was very excited about it and yes, we took a bunch of photos too.

      Did you get close to the tower where you can really appreciate how extremely tall it is?
