Hi all! Since this is a business
trip I haven't had lots of time to write, nor have I been doing tourist
stuff during the week. But here's some snapshots I took to give
you more idea of what it's like.
A couple of days ago I got up early, while still adjusting to the time
change. It was just after dawn, and I hoped to see a nice
sunrise. Apparently there was some volcanic eruption somewhere in
Asia and the sky was (and still is) hazy, so all I saw was the
moon. But here's some roughly 5AM pictures of Tokyo.
The Tokyo Tower
is a big landmark and if it fell over would fall on my hotel.
Apparently it's the tallest free-standing iron tower in the
world. They're building a new one that will be twice as
Saw this link off Wikipedia where it shows what it was like when they
changed the color for the Tokyo opening of The Matrix. Cool.
The Tokyo Prince Hotel is where the airport limo would drop you off if
you took it, just the other side of the tower from here.
And you can't go anywhere without your corn flakes. This is about
11 ounces, cost $4.
That's it for now. See you soon!
