I went to Tokyo for a briefing of working holiday.
I have never go to Tokyo in holiday, so when I get on a train from a station of my home town, almost all of the seats were filled.
I thought I want to go home for that moment.
But, a green car of train was holiday discount, so I took on it paying 780 yen with mobile suica.
Mobile Suica is very useful.
A link below is a diary when I take on the green car of train.
I was relaxing about two hours on green car, then I was getting off at Tokyo Station.
There were a lot of people, I wanted to go home because I saw that view.
The day was holiday, so I had had an appointment to meet my friend.
But, I got lost a meeting location, then my friend find me that I ate bread at a bakery in station.
Then, we went out and took pictures Tokyo station for no particular reason.
I knew that there is the imperial palace near, we were going to go around, but it was bigger than I thought, so we took a rest at bench and looked up in the sky.
A toilet near the imperial palace was beautiful and wide.
When we went to the imperial palace on the way, We have finded a flight steps that lead to the basement.
We were interested in it and went down the stairs, then we took a subtrain of Tokyo Metro and went to Ochanomizu.
I saw Starbucks Coffee near the out of station, so I went into the shop 2nd time in my life.
But, I didn’t understand as usual what is delicious.
Plus, it was expensive.
There were a lot of musical instruments stores like guitar the along the street in front of JR Ochanomizu station.
Plus, there were lots of students, so I guess there is demand for instrument?
One more thing, building of Meiji University and Nihon University faced each other across.
My friend had a plan that he is going to see a baseball game of Giants, so we parted on the way to destination each other.
After that, when I was seeing good narrow streets on the way of my destination, I stoped by that road for interesting each time.
So, I lost my way a little.
I had arrived my destination safety and I received explanations of working holiday for two hours.
After that, I asked many questions, then I felt other participant was getting cold looks around me.
I realized it was running over the scheduled time.
Because, I was scared going abroad.
I think there was difference in seriousness, because other participant might be scheduled to go abroad next year.
I was going to go abroad by the end of the year, but I heard others were going to go abroad January next year earliest.
I wonder that they didn’t know? A resident tax will be charged in the case of remaining in Japan by next year.
When the briefing finished and I went home, I took a green car of train, because I thought there were crowded in standard car. But, I thought it was good to be able to take the train by the baseball game finished.
I had a terrible experience at a concert, so I really thought it was good to be able to take the train.
A link below is a diary of that terrible experience.
I thought it was good to walk around the city actually even though I don’t like crowded.
There were various shops and some events, so I thought I wouldn’t get bored.
I understood a little a reason young people gather in Tokyo.
I’m also young man!
By the way, I was surprised that there were many people who were thinking about working holiday 1 year ago.
I have never think until now and it is point to look back, because I was so busy.
Anyway, I’m satisfied because I could learn a lot about working holiday.
In the near future, I will go to Tokyo to apply working holiday visa, I’m going to go sightseeing at that time.
At that time, I hope I will not be caught in the evening rush hour.
I hate crowded train.
