Set amongst the financial area of the city are these beautiful gardens - which in Spring/Summer are going to be even better. A lovely peaceful picnic for lunch and a stroll around here with a stop in the little teahouse on the lake was lovely in the sunshine. You do have to pay to get in (about £1!) but it was worth it. We saw the start of the renowned cherry blossoming starting which was so pretty as well.
Ginza Shopping District
Have you even been to a city if you haven't been shopping?!! Haha. Great to have a look at Japanese fashion and also more known shops as well. It was like the Japanese version of 5th Avenue in New York.
This area of Tokyo had SO much going on and was more a typical scene of how I imagined Japan. Bright lights, business, weird and wonderful Animae advertisements and lots to see and do. We went for dinner at a restaurant, Kamukura, where you ordered and paid for your food on a machine outside and then handed the tickets over to the chef inside and it was brought to your table. Novel again! And most importantly...tasty and around £7 again :-)
Then we found Mario Kart !!!
It could not have been a trip to Japan without playing our childhood favourite...and in an arcade it was there ready to play! Too much fun!!
The smallest entrance leading to a little cave bar
The Robot Restaurant - a must see.
I don't even think they could call it a restaurant, you can order a meal to have whilst you watch one of the most craziest shows I have ever seen! You are sit in 4 tiers, with the 'stage' in the middle of the other tiers facing you. And out comes lots go giant robots/machines with crazy lights and people dressed up on them drumming and dancing...then a random guy did a show with lasers...I cannot describe it well enough to do it justice!!! Here are some photos to show you, but if you go to Tokyo do this!
