Two full days in Kyoto wasn’t enough time to explore what the city has to offer.
But I had more sights to see, places to visit and food to eat — and that meant heading to Tokyo for three nights.
On the agenda: touring Tsukiji Fish Market, walking around Akihabara, eating at a specialty unagi shop, and eating whatever I wanted in the food courts at the upscale department stores in Ginza.
The rain wasn’t going to stop me — though, I’ll admit, I wasn’t looking forward to schlepping my luggage in a downpour.
Turns out, it really wasn’t that bad. And for the first time, I might actually be full.
Here’s what my first night in Tokyo looked like:

Tokyo is crowded everyday of the week. Keep the pixs coming!
Hope you are headed to the Imperial Palace, lots of great walk in places to eat near there. Also, you must go to the Roppongi Hills. Love that area. It is alive with wild creatures resembling humans.
Did the Imperial Palace 11 years ago. Met the princess and everything. Oh, yeah, that’s how I roll.
When in Tokyo, I use the Yamaote train line to get around. It runs in a large loop and takes about an hour to go completely around. You can go clock wise or counter clock wise. It goes to Ebisu, Shinjuku, Harajuku, Shibuya, Ikebukuro, Ueno, Akihabara, Shimbashi, Shinagawa, Yoyogi and Tokyo.
The 5 times I been to Tokyo, it never rained once. If you like to see lots of Sakura blossoms, if it’s still in bloom, go to Ueno Park, walking distance from the Ueno station. The whole park has Sakura trees. Very popular park for the locals to see sakura.
I can’t believe it rained every day BUT once here!
cool hotel location. I may have to look into staying there next time.
It was super convenient. And everything was new. Plus, one of the guys who is traveling with us inspected the building and said we’d be safe if there was an earthquake. Good to know!
I can’t make out the first character on the hamburger bun, but I think the rest of it reads “____cha Dainaa (Diner)”
Whoo! Thanks! That’s pretty damn good!
