LANDED!!! That's the end of A380 ride. Japan: "Yokoso!!"
I'm tired but excited. But most importantly, must fill my hungry stomach before the limousine bus ride departed from Narita for Ikebukuro where our accommodation was situated. Not taking narita express this time coz we hadn't started using the Japan Rail (JR) Pass and, actually, bus was more convenient coz didn't have to manoeuvre the luggage across platforms, up and down stairs and crowded passage way at train station.
At late afternoon, we went to Asakusa (in search of a particular soft toy). Ha ha.. we weren't exactly there for the famous Kannon Temple. Going there at a different time of the day, I liked it better now. It was less crowded and the view at dusk was pretty charming. As we were a little too late that evening, temple and some shops in the shopping alley were closed for the day.
