~*~Finding my way in Tokyo~*~

Tokyo Subway map!

After missing my stop on the NEX for the Tokyo station, I got off the train and saw tons of people moving about to catch the subway.  I had a map of where I needed to go, but could not understand it. Then I started walking around until I found a guard  to ask how to get to the Aoyama itchome stop. After finding out he could not speak much English, I left and found someone else at the help desk.  The lady spoke a little bit more English and was able to write down each stop to get on.

I remembered that a card came with my Suica and NEC Users Guide, and saw people touching the gates to pass through. I took mines out and follow suit and I was able to use it to enter and exit through the gates.  I got on the subway by looking at the colors on the signs. After the long day and following the directions on the piece of paper I got from the help desk, I finally arrived at Aoyama- itchome station.  Looking at my luggage, and then all the stairs, I went to ask someone if there was an elavator to get on,but they guy used his hands to express that I had to go up the stairs and then chuckled a little when he saw all my luggage.It only made me sad!! but I made it up the stairs and onto the streets. It was nighttime when I arrived and the directions to the hotel was hard to make out, so I asked someone else how to get to the hotel. A girl who spoke English was able to help me out a great deal. I was very thankful and proceeded on my way. When I got close to the hotel, I asked someone else who was waiting at a light, and she happened to be going to the same place and told me I could follow her. I finally arrived to the Hotel Asian Center of Japan around 8:30 pm on Wednesday and went up to my room to find my roomie, Mz. Courtney!! and soon after Mz. Vita!! YAY!!
