Hello from Tokyo!

Post by pukka » Sun Jul 11, 2004 12:09 pm

Greetings from Shinjuku - Tokyo, Japan. Just travelling around the area. It's hot but comfortably dry here. Loving the food (Kobe beef anyone? or some raw seafood? yummy :D), people and buzzing city life. Visited a few traditional rural areas too.

Seem a few VW's, mostly standard spec, wasn't able to take any pics tho (did try a few times but they were on the move!).

Passed by Toyota's City Showcase, popped in and took a few pics there. Will post some when I get back. Some neat looking small cars they have here.

:D

Looks like you're having a great time!

Thanks, I had a fab time in Japan :).

That sneek pic was taken on a bus a few seats back from the front windscreen.

If you look at that pic again you should spot two Polos! I think the red one is a 6n and the blue one is a 6n2 (or possibly a 9n?).... a shame my digicam couldn't zoom in anymore :(

:D


(PS... sorry to any 56K users for the large post/pics!)

Oh how I miss Japan, I had such a great time over there, glad to hear the same from you. What was your reason for your visit?

Did you get out much? Try any Karaoke bars? he he he, they were a great laugh too!
