Today I was invited to a picnic at Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden (200JPY entry fee) with Naoko and friends. It was nice to explore parts of Tokyo that I have not seen before; I’m currently located in the calmer, more residential Koenji area. The garden itself is so peaceful and clean, and there is a large greenhouse inside of its boundaries that contains many beautiful flowers and other plants that I’ve never seen before. I took a few snaps of some of my favorite ones and definitely plan on visiting the garden again before I leave Japan.
Lovely ramen lunch with my grandmother and Naoko near Koenji Station at Tabushi.
This was probably the most non-Vietnamese Vietnamese food I’ve ever had (Phở Bay). It wasn’t bad, especially considering the other options around my hotel in Seoul. Naoko and I are here for WordCamp and leave tomorrow. I’m looking forward to meeting WordPressers in South Korea today.
Naoko and I visited Waseda Business School yesterday to chat with one of its faculty members about the new WBS website, which has been beautifully built using WordPress. I’m very impressed with all the hard work that Sean has put into bringing the website to life, and I look forward to chatting more with him soon about WordPress in higher education.
