Japan Narita Tokyo Ueno Train

2 November 2015

Mobile mucus dispersion unit

Collecting pocket wifi and getting from Narita to Ueno

Once the plane landed, I started a continuous sneezing fit for the next few hours as I made my way to my hotel after navigating the airport to find an ATM and collect my WiFi Puck thing.
Ignoring all Japanese etiquette, I made sure to aim my sneezes into the air in multiple directions. With my short, pig like nose, the distance and volume of pathogen I can produce is truly amazing.

I then got my ticket for the Kesei Skyliner and found a vending machine for a drink. I have 3 different Japanese transport passes, they now all work everywhere, and to my surprise they all have at least $5 value on them, so I used one to buy a drink.
The train ride into town was fast and goes straight to the station where my hotel is, Ueno. But it seemed to take forever despite being 36 minutes.
Once off the train, I walked the wrong way for a while and became delusional, more so, I really just needed to get to my hotel and fall over.

This is my room, all of it. Probably equal smallest room I have ever had. I think my rooms get better from here for the rest of the trip.
Once I have carefully arranged everything its perfectly comfortable for one person to sit at the desk, with one suitcase.
The girl at the desk made doubly sure I was staying in this room on my own, as I think its illegal to sell to more than one person.

Japan-Narita-Tokyo-Ueno-Train - Bathroom is nearly as big as the main room, one bonus is that the shower isnt over the toilet. Thats not uncommon in some places.
