From Malaysia we flew back Singapore & after a very long layover in Singapore we flew to Toyko. We were scheduled to stay over in Singapore & fly to Toyko at like 9 in the morning. We decided to change our flight so we would fly overnight from Singapore to Toyko; this gave us a day in Japan. Because this was not part of our original plan I did not have appropriate clothes for our day out in Japan. You have to remember that I packed strictly for the tropics. So when we got to Japan, I had to buy put on all the clothes I had with me (in my carry-on which was jsut an outfit change) plus buy a thermal shirt in the airport. Did I mention that it had just snowed about 6 inches there? So ya, I was wearing capri pants with leggings undernear, a blazer, t-shirt, thermal, & canvas shoes. No ideal for Narita, the winder wonderland.
After finding a locker to store our backpakcs, etc. & getting otherwise situated, we took the underground to Narita. It was a lovely little town, very close to the airport. We spent the day walking around, checking out all the little shops & having lunch in one of the local restaurants. Unlike all the other countries we visited on this trip, English was not spoken in Narita. In fact we had a very hard time ordering lunch because of the language barrier. We had these two older ladies sitting next to us that didn’t speak a work of english but were trying to help us order. It was quite comical.
