I had been to Tokyo 5 years ago, so I had seen some of the sights. This time I am here mostly to see my brother and his family. I also wandered around on my own a few times.
1. Edo Tokyo Museum. It is a good museum if you can read Japanese.
2. Tokyo Station.
3. The Imperial Palace East Gardens on the left, Palace Hotel on the right.
4. Inside the Imperial Palace East Gardens (free).
5. Old street lights used in the Imperial Palace before.
6. Inside the Imperial Palace East Gardens.
7. The Imperial Palace East Gardens.
8. A good Sushi restaurant I found in Shinjuku (cash only at lunch).
9. They had a 600 Yen (+ tax) lunch set that included: steamed egg, a bowl of sushi rice with sashimi on top, and miso soup.
10. Uni and herring roe I ordered with the help of another customer since the waitress didn't understand English.
11. Conveyor belt sushi, an easier way to eat Sushi for foreigners. Just take whatever you want, and pay at the end based on how many plates you have.
12. Scallop from the conveyor belt sushi.
- $1 was about 100 Yen in Dec. 2013.
- My CityMaps2Go app didn't work in Tokyo the first two days. Every time I tried to find out where I was, it just kept spinning. Only on the 3rd day, it was able to tell me where I was. But still it couldn't provide nearby restaurants information. I am wondering if the app is not good for Asia cities.
