Our first day has been such a lovely experience. The people are very helpful and polite, the subway easy to navigate, the sights a contrast of old and new, and the food excellent.
We took the subway to pick up the Sky Hop sightseeing bus and did the loops to get a feel for the city. Although very chilly (8-10 deg with wind) on the upper deck of the bus we zipped up our jackets, used the blankets provided for our knees and enjoyed the sights. Here are some photos of the scenes and diversity of buildings in Tokyo.
From Floor 350 of the Tokyo Skytree the views of the city were vast. Although not the clearest of days it was still a great chance to see the expanse of this very large city.
This lovely little garden was tucked in behind some tall buildings.
Our choice of food was delightful. Noodles (with some unknown ingredients), Tempura Prawn and Sweet Potato, and surprisingly the coffee here is very good. We won’t starve that’s for sure.
