Tokyo is an amazing city. A really cool and interesting place to just wander. So, that is just we did on a slightly damp Saturday morning. To begin we jumped off the train at Kagurazaka. This is an area of narrow alleys, temples, bars and interesting shops. It's really interesting and what you imagine Tokyo looked like before all the hyper-modern high rise was built.
The first couple of temples were exactly what they should look like in the middle of blossom season.
From here we jumped on a couple more stops on train back to Shinjuku which, even on a Saturday, is the bustling commercial heart of Tokyo. Something like 2 million people pass through this station a day. We strolled around the impressively me den architecture and on to the centre of Tokyo Government. The Tokyo Metroplitan Government building.
As as we got out of the lift we bumped into a family from school. I mean, what are the odds? Going from a city of 14 million to another of 16 million and bumping into someone you know!
The views were staggering. You really get an idea of the size of Tokyo. It is not particularly high rise so you can see the curvature of the horizon.
Looking down into the park people were already sat on their blue tarpaulins for an afternoon chill-axing for the afternoon. This is something I can highly recommend if you want to see Japanese relaxing. The other picture is taken at about the same time of year for years ago in Nagoya.
