Day 29: Tokyo and weather change.August 18, 2016 in Japan
Wow I slept good, I woke the way I laid down. Checking out at 11:30 (30min too late) so be it. Coffe corner around the corner for breakfast and we can start the day. Not to much pain in my legs (took some magnesium last night ;-)) but my hands were weak. Driving the ninja no problem;-). Downtown Tokyo here I come, the weather awfull hot so keep on driving :p. The Palace was my first stop and maybe if I see those clouds also the last ;-). I parked on the street and trotted through the gates, walked in the parcs and there it came the dark cloud were uppon me. I located a store with some benches outside and the tropical rain came down. I sat there for 2 hours but had a really nice view and enough company haha shelter draws people quickly with this weather.
Rain rain rain some thunder and some more rain. I checked the forecast, there was a gap coming. I bought my second umbrella, and went sight seeing in the drizzle that was left of the rain. I headed back to my bike when it was dry. Did my last tour through tokyo and went 3 times over the Rainbow bridge because it is so much fun. I delivered my precious at the rental shop and the same funny guy went through the whole return cyclus with me. Again much fun, but sad to say goodbye. I looked up a Sushi restaurant nearby and went for it. Delicious fresh made in front of me, perfect ending.
Took the bus to the hotel (well the station nearby) and one more adventure today?
Wow I just don't get it apparently, on the way here I paid 1300yen for a medium fast line... I think I got the good one. Now i paid 3200Yen for the fast one, and I stepped in to a slower one. How? I had 25min to get to the hotel get my bag and go back to the station. I already bought the ticket... why did I do that? I don't really know why but it was the last fast train, i wasn't thinking I tought the last anyway. I ran to the hotel and there the hotel would get a cab when I asked them, I got my bag and after a few minutes the receptionist said it will be here in 14 minutes and the reservation fee is 410yen. Whaaat? 14 min my train is already gone, I had only 1200 left and needed 1000 for the taxi, so I ran outside jumped on the left side of the road and got a cab in 10 seconds booojaaa haha. Got at the station with 8 minutes left. Platform 13 the train from 19:50 well I had 1minutes left, asked a guy if this one goes to narita ( not the wrong way or so ;-) ) and got in car nr 10. What could go wrong??? Wrong train off course. Mine was delayed 3 min and came after this one... it was faster so when I noticed I couldn't change and it was the last also... grrrrr. Well I got there It took me 40minutes more but I had the time because I sleep at the airport woohoo.
