Okay, so let me begin by showing the view from where we are staying - I am awed each and everytime I look out the window. Tokyo is BIG and DENSE. To the right is the bay and ocean, and the view on the other side of the building is the Imperial Palace and downtown. We are in the Tsukishima neighborhood, and wonderfully close to everything.
Yesterday we went to Hama-rikyu gardens and had tea and confections tea-ceremony style (with help from handy tourist instructions) and then walked around the Roppongi area and did some shopping. Unfortunately, most store do not allow photographs!
