Enjoy the beauty of the waterfront

By Manggalani R.Ukirsari. executive summary by darmansjah

Panoramic view of Tokyo Bay was thrilling. Berpulas orange sunset sky against the background of the white peak of Fuji has published my admiration. Landscape is increasingly felt complete with supporting ornament: a bridge to the port
city Daiba Tokyo, mock Statue of Liberty, and the ship back and forth.

I did not make you jealous. But that's a view of Odaiba in the autumn dusk. Certainly no one expected an island of Odaiba is a human creation. The bridge that move goods and inhabitants of the island helped add a beautiful glow with colorful bright. White, red, and green. The lighting is generated from solar energy. Non-carbon.

Because decorated with colors of the rainbow, residents nicknamed the bridge: Rainbow Bridge. Actually, Connector bridge Shuto Expressway No. 11 Daiba Route - Port of Tokyo. It may be too long and difficult to remember, people prefer to call it by the name of the first one.

There are two fun ways to enjoy the beauty of one of the most beautiful bridges across the country Sakura. I suggest that you choose the train ride - without the risk of fatigue and tiredness. The route, starting from Shimbashi station towards Toyosu with Yurikamome monorail. To achieve shimbashi, we can choose the Yamanote Line. Train without a driver would take us across the bridge and up to 270 ᵒ moving around so it looks landscape bay.

The second way is more economical and requires more body energy: walking. I have been doing it this way. Armed with sneakers, I pursue an 800 m for about 50 minutes. I started my walk from the train station in Yrikamone Shibaurafuto its mainland Tokyo. We can also start to dawn Tamachi Station on the JR East waterfront. Now, you are ready to pursue a rainbow bridge Odaiba like me?

Staring at the gorgeous unique lanterns, by - Manggalani R Ukirsari, executive summary by darmansjah

This is one marker of metropolitan Tokyo: Temple Sensouji. Moore Morii Fumiki-old friend of mine who lives in Nishi-Shinjuku - reveals, there is a reason why the place of worship is very interesting for every walker. "First, the architecture is unique Sensouji, can not be compared with other temples in Tokyo. Secondly, located near the river. It is also a differentiator. "

Morii-san said, Sensouji built about 628 years after the two brothers find a small statue made of gold goddess Kannon in the Sumida River. "They believe in the reincarnation of the goddess and worship. That is the reason, why the temple was built near the river where the statue was found. "

When visiting the temple, the first sight is the Kaminari-Mon (gate lightning). Here hung giant red lanterns that looks very popular because so many featured in books about Japan travel guides, postcards to photographs of the tourists. This lantern side with statues Raijin (god of thunder) and Fuujin (Wind god).

"After that there is a long corridor Omete epithet-filled Sando taverns traditional souvenirs, decorative items to Japanese cuisine. Visitors come to this place not to hunt for souvenirs, but also want to taste the local flavor, "Morii said. Including, Senbei snack (such as rice crackers) which covered by soy sauce and covered with a sheet of nori or dried seaweed.

After Kaminari-Mon gate and corridor Omete-Sando, we can continue the exploration into the second gate named Hozo-Mon. popular decoration in this section is Waraji or giant straw sandals hanging on one side. Central to the area is the Goddess of Kannon altar, where pilgrims recite the prayer. If still enough time, 

so wrong temple visit, I suggest you along the banks of the Sumida River. From there, we can enjoy the splendor of the towering Tokyo Sky Tree - as seen in the picture on this page. "If you want to be closer to the Sumida River, take a boating tour packages from here to odaiba and garden Hamarikyu," Morii, insider Tokyo, has made a passionate pleasure I overwhelming.

Concrete jungle contains tens of millions of people who look busy and modern. Tokyo, the world's largest metropolis as the buffer zone reaches more than 35 million people. For me, Tokyo is the last obstacle before venturing Fuji-san. At least from the point of view of "nature lovers".

Understanding the pulse of the metropolis and its landscape is most easily watched from the heights. The easiest way: go up to the 44th floor of the building mayor of Tokyo in Shinjuku. If the day is sunny then get eyes away looking all direction, the building looks wilderness. Even Fuji-san can be seen.

If we look into the distance buildings can seemingly open green area. That's the palace gardens of the Japanese empire. Metropolitan Tokyo itself has also national parks and farms and outlying islands.

Travelers entering Japan usually through major cities such as Tokyo or Osaka. Impression while watching both transport facilities, automatic machine row of food vendors, a giant super screens in Tokyo, Japan is a developed country. The community crammed in commuter trains, silence,. No hawkers milling.

Driving toward, say city tour Kamikochi, central Nihon Arupusu - Alp Japan, modern impression at the entrance. Even in a city surrounded by spectacular peaks, if it enters a small room, toilet seats offer heating facilities.

This impression was all lost when it entered into the mountain. Different from train commuters, people greet each other as they passed. "Ikimasu, Ganbatte," which means more or less let go, and be strong. This is the spirit of the nation hit hard by World War II to bounce back from the ruins become the ruler of the world economy.

Moreover, if the cross Hida Arupusu, or Alp North, and down into the village. Although farmers there have a car, but their behavior is the same as the villagers everywhere, friendly. If we can go beyond modernity, Japanese spirit of adventure will unveil a charming culture based
