    Our adventure to the pier

    October 9, 2016 in Japan

    After waiting for the rain to clear we finally decided on the taxi option to get to Tokyo station. The directions were a little confusing so after arriving at platform 9 as advised we were lucky to get someone who helped explain it was actually platform 9 we needed for our non reserved class tickets. After lining up on platform 10 we thought again best to ask a local and it was fortunate as we were waiting in premium queuing. Eventually we had the right place and were off to yokohama.

    After arriving at yokohama we then found others who were a little list and also going to the boat. Next was the challenge of getting the minatorimai line to our final stop and getting the tickets and onto the train was without a hitch but we had gotten on a limited express train so arrived at the other end having missed our intended destination. We figured it out and went back the required 1 stop to our final destination. A short walk later we were at Osanbashi pier and are now beginning check in for the cruise

    Tokyo to Yokohama

    October 13, 2017 in Japan

    We caught the 10:30am train to Yokohama. The trip took around 30 minutes. We then changed to the subway for the last part of the journey to Nihon-Odori. It was about a 650m walk to Osanbashi Pier and we had a short wait to board the ship. We had lunch in the Lido and then we went to a Mariner Society welcome drinks. We sat with a couple from Canada who had done lots of cruises. They were both retired school teachers and had an Australian daughter-in-law. Not long after we sat down, Cathryn saw two familiar faces enter the Crows Nest for the Mariner drinks. It was Sarah and Ann, we couldn't believe it and neither could they! We met them on our first Holland America cruise from Singapore to Hong Kong in 2015. Certainly is a small world. After catching up, we finished unpacking and then got ready for the lifeboat drill at 7:30pm, followed by dinner at 8pm. We enjoyed dinner in the Main dining room followed by the show at 9:30pm. On the way back to the cabin we sat and listened to the Ocean Trio (formerly the Neptunes). The female pianist and singer were excellent.Read more

    Was mir bereits am ersten Tag in Tokio aufgefallen war, sind die zur Stadt passenden dekorativen Gullideckel. Ich habe das während meiner Reise mal im Auge behalten und kann bestätigen, dass sich das auf große Teile Japans übertragen lässt.

    Ich zeige hier mal ein paar Schnappschüsse, die ich zum Teil während der Fußgängergrünphase oder zwischen 2 Autos mitten auf der Straße machen musste.
