Sumida, Chiyoda & Shibuya

Let’s start tonight’s blog with the countdown instead of at the end…

 

Haha there is still Coke and Pepsi here!
  
This morning was an early start as we wanted to make sure we didn’t wait in a line too long! What was the line for? Where were we going? Oh! That’s right, our first stop was Sumida, in central Tokyo. Something very famous stands very tall here. In fact it’s the tallest tower IN THE WORLD! Yup, we went to the famous Tokyo Skytree! 

Looking up items actually making me sick! I had been on the Euruka Skydeck in Melbourne, but the highest point to stand in is 86 floors, the Skytree’s tallest standing point is 451.2 metres high!!! It actually is 636 metres tall, but of course we cannot go right to the top.

I was amazed at how fast we went up to floor 350! It only took a matter of seconds and it didn’t feel like we were moving! 

The view was just amazing! I would love to have stayed there all day! Unfortunately even though the weather was clear, it wasn’t clear enough to see Mount.Fuji!

 
    

   

    
    

At floor 350 you can purchase another ticket to go up even higher to floor 450, which we did of course! 

   

 

Photo Point…highest point! 451.2 m
     
  
Selfie! P.S. New phone cover…Yay!
 

Like any tourist destination they try to get you to buy buy buy! Yup we did…we bought photos because it’s hard to get a photo of you and the awesome view with the glare from the lights and windows!

   
   

 
Our next destination was not too far away, in Chiyoda. This also held another famous building. However unlike the Skytree it is known for its serenity, calm, peaceful beauty! It was The Imperial Palace. 

Even though the actual palace is not open to the public except for two times a year, we were able to walk the beautiful landscaped East Gardens.

Photos do not do this place any justice! It is hard to believe that these gardens are surrounded by tall city buildings!

   
    
    
    
    
    
    
 

 

We bought this as a souviner, an antique picture
 
 
The walls were HUGE!
 
Our final destination tonight was Shibuya! It is known for its nightlife and shops! It is also known for the story of the dog who waited 7 years for his owner to come home! It’s also well known for the biggest intersection that stops all traffic to allow pedestrians to walk though! 

   
    
    

A random cat is actually jist sitting there on a blanket sleeping!
 
As the city turned to night we realised we should eat dinner! So we…actually it was my idea…decided to go and do a maid cafe and see what it was all about!

It was actually really adorable, and cute! Yes they wore maid outfits but the girls were nice and very enthusiastic about you enjoying your meal and making it a great atmosphere.

   
  

They gave us animal ears!!!
  
How awesome is the environment!
  
Animal Ears!
  
This was amazing! (Before drawing)

On our way home we stopped at a few shops and I finally bought myself the Midori Travellers Notebook! Oh and some stainary items and a beautiful skirt! Tomorrow is fashion day!
