In the afternoon, I went to see Tokyo's oldest garden: Koishikawa Korakuen Garden. Much damage from both 1923 Great Firequake and 1945 Firebombings, but it was still a beautiful island of tranquility, sort of.
Why sort of? Because it is next to the Tokyo Dome. This is not only the big baseball stadium where the Tokyo Giants play but also a site:
- off track betting--the crumpled betting sheets made it the dirtiest place in Tokyo
- an amusement park with roller coaster (so much noise of shrieking reached the garden)
- oh, and the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Anyhow, I love my job and I love my job.
