Day 1 (24/03): Sakura trees, Akiba & Omotesando

Arrived in Tokyo station at 12h16 and you're really thrown in the crowd as Tokyo station is very crowdy and many platforms. If you haven't been here before, it's a complete chaos. But I knew which train line to take. I took the Keihin-Tohoku, which is faster than the Yamanote line as it skips a few smaller stations. This time I went immediately to put my baggage at the hotel. What was less good, was that it rained hard. And on the train to Tokyo, I realized I forgot to pack my umbrella ;p So I had to buy an umbrella and got me one of those clear ones that you see a lot in Japan. Anyway, got my baggage put away, and went back to Ueno to the park to see the remaining sakura, and there were still quite a lot, it was very beautiful.

Part 2:
After Ueno Park I went for a quick look at the reseller shop in Ueno for my tickets for the concerts. There were many tickets for Ayumi's tour but only 2 for the 6th, and none for the 5th. X-Japan had more choice as it were only 3 concerts. No Gazette tickets though...
Went for a quick stroll around Akihabara and went back to check in the hotel. The room looked just like last time, good enough.
Then I went for a walk through Harajuku to check the reseller shop there, but was rather dissapointed as they practically had no choice at all for Ayumi, just 4 tickets. Not coming here again. Then I went looking for the Hello Kitty shop on Omotesando. There isn't actually a Hello Kitty shop there, but a shop called Kiddy World. It has several floors of cute toys and has a large section of Hello Kitty on one of its floors. You really get overloaded of all the cute stuff, love it ;p Went to bed after this, sooo tired from the flight.
