4AM in Chiyoda

EN: It has been a month since I last posted anything on this blog, the reason is simple – several previous weeks were not very eventful, with pretty bad weather and thus I could not or did not want to travel and explore places on my bike. But this Friday the weather forecast was finally positive just for one day (we are expecting typhoon Trami to reach Tokyo today, not fun at all), thus I did what I have always wanted to do – to enjoy sunrise in my favourite place, Chiyoda. I left my flat at around 3:30AM, I reached Yasukuni shrine at 4:44 (time easy to remember), then I enjoyed the rest of the place, just biking around and taking photos (all from my hand, no tripod, unfortunately) and then I returned back home. I actually like the mist which was seen hovering over areas close to Imperial Palace, I have never seen that one before. Great morning.

SK: Od dňa, kedy som celkom spontánne navštívil Kawaguchiko, uplynul takmer presne jeden mesiac, na blog som neposielal nič, keďže som nikam necestoval aj z dôvodu zlého počasia. V piatok bola ale predpoveď konečne po dlhom čase mimoriadne pozitívna, takže som si v práci vybral voľno a konečne som spravil to, čo som dlho plánoval – vidieť východ slnka v mojej obľúbenej časti Tokia, zvanej Chiyoda. Musel som ten deň využiť, keďže som vedel, že po ňom príde tajfún Trami, ktorý mieri priamo na mesto. Z bytu som vyrazil o 3:30 ráno, k svätyni Yasukuni som dorazil o 4:44, teda v ľahko zapamätateľnom čase. Odtiaľ som sa presúval postupne k stanici Tokio okolo Cisárskeho paláca, pri ktorom som videl po prvýkrát hmlu vznášať sa nad trávnatými plochami. Okolo veže Tokio Tower som sa vybral cez Shibuya späť domov.
