Tokyowalking : Castle Park @ Tokyo

Kokyo (castle in tokyo) is one of the largest park in tokyo. Kokyo meaning is the house for royal familly.
Now, half parts of the kokyo is still house for royal family. However, half of them are opened for park. Several years ago, it is opened for public. Before the day, it was opened for special days as a season of cherry blossom or autumn leaves. 

Now, most day except monday and friday are opened. (You should check exact schedule before to go)  LInk


When the Edo Period, the castle was a house for Shogun family ( Main General) So, stone walls are so sharp angle. I think I dont want to climb such wall....


Following photos are from a place where it had main tower. 
I don't know when the main tower was removed or broken. But i did not know the castle also had a main tower. 

 Most space of this castle are not barrier free.  It is little bit hard to climb the space of main tower.



Well, Kokyo has many histories to build it. So, many places has different stile of building for stone wall. Like as head of this article, the stone wall is built just after to start a city of Edo. So, this stile is quite diffence with this kind of stone wall.


You can check many stone walls, when you walk in Koyko. And the building style are quite difference from European building stile of stone wall.




You can see views which has old and new Tokyo.

I think this was head of main tower. (Im not sure. I did not read this explain board....)

End of last year, I went to cycling to Ikebukuro. Ikebukuro is one of the main city on Yamanote-line (loop line) It is north area of Tokyo (loop-line).

Basically, most rail lines on mid-tokyo are as subway or elevated railway. So, it made my so surprising, when I saw it. 
This is tram in tokyo. I did not know that tokyo also has a tram.

Following photo is another tram station.

I saw several tram on the railway. Most of them are painted with different line (maybe...) This tram is named Toden-Arakawa-Line. This line is for Waseda University. I could not take the tram, becase I rode my bicycle. However, I will take the tram on some day.

Following river is River, Kanda. The river is used on some old japanese song.


SSID in japanese?

Usually, we don't use japanese for setting to computer. Because, japaese needs at least two byte. Usually, many computer systems are designed for one byte. So, to use japanese in the system setting was not common way. If he is usual engineer then he will not set japanese for the setting to SSID. I was not do such a thing.

Google about this ssid expression in japanese. So, it is  exist.Now, I had no wireless devces for trying it. But,it is so intersting thing for me.

Bicycle insurance in japan

Long time, I was considering about bicycle insurance.

Many japanese are not consider about insurance for bicycle in japan. Because japan is weak country for insurance.

Many people considered about when they are attacked by car. They didn't have an idea what they may be going to be individual at fault. However, road bikes are faster than my MTB. And, many of city bikes do not turn on a head light after sunset. The old person has also no idea what the bicycles can ride so fast as 50cc motar bike. Then they easy enter in front of bicycles. Such kind of accident is not few in japan. And, the worst case of such accident, the road bike rider needed to pay 40 millions yen to attacked person.

Bicycle ride's bad manner have begun to social issues. Some bicycle riders do not follow the traffic lights or traffic signs. In such background, sometime, I have risks what I will be attacked by such bicycle riders when I ride my MTB. However, as above reason, many riders have no insurance for r…
