There's an advantage in traveling to a destination where you have been before, especially if time is limited. You don't feel this pressure of missing the must-sees - although in Tokyo, it would probably take you at least half a year to visit all the important sights!
Anyway, we found that there were a lot of great things to do in walking distance of our hotel, so we stayed in the area.
But first I got up very early (thanks, jet-lag) which left me with ample time to use the WiFi in the hotel lobby. The hotel was opened in 1968 and I am pretty sure they haven't changed a thing here since then...
Passing through a temple on our way, where highschool students were on a field trip. Not just visiting but actually praying in the temple.
That's me with my new Japanese umbrella with UV protection!
OK, here somobody was actually throwing them some crombs and they got pretty exited!
The small street left of the "flat iron" building is where we went later that day.
You think those students waiting for their Starbucks fix are in a long queue?
They even have automats for the tickets and we were in very quickly. Starting with the big birds.
But here are lemurs - they are fun to watch!
Another "only in Japan" moment: many brands will have products that are produced especially for the Japanese market, like this cherry blossom Pepsi.
The hotel has it's own little onsen (hot spring bath) on the top floor, an excellent way to relax after a long day like this. We both went to soak in the hot water - separately of course in a women's and men's bath, since everybody is getting naked for this. Sorry, no pictures :-)
