Toyama >> Ueno >> Nippori (390.5 km, 150 minutes, 12,720 Yen)

In the morning, after pausing for a brief visit at the Kansui Park and the Toyama Prefectural Museum of Art & Design for some very picture-worthy moments, I took the Hokuriku Shinkansen to make the 391km trip to Tokyo. Home for the next 2 nights would be within the Nippori Ward at APA Hotel TKP Nippori-Ekimae (one stop from the massive Ueno Station).

Soon afterwards, I headed to the Tokyo Skytree (Asakusa Station) where fine views of the Tower from the opposite bank of the Sumida River could be had. After the last light of the day had dissipated, there was just enough time for me to stop by for some street shopping at the Ameya Yokocho Arcade at Ueno as well as visiting the huge Uniqlo outlet at Okachimachi Station in the evening.
