Japan Trip 2015

Tokyo Day 1 (31/12/2014)

I started today out with a Morning Tour of Tokyo. This took me to visit the Tokyo Tower, Imperial Palace Plaza and Sensoji Temple and Nakamise Shopping Street. Imperial Palace was fascinating to see, Got a couple of photos but not enough time to really see the view of it.

Sensoji Temple was packed with people going for New Years. Tonight/tomorrow will be the same when everyone goes for the first blessing of the year.

The view from The Tokyo Tower was breath taking. Shall be heading back there now (night time) to see the New Year in. (Just have to work out how to get back there :P).

I had to get the train back to my hotel and I brought the ticket for the local train but then I got on the next train to come and it turned out to be a limited express so I got a fine as I only had ticket for local. They have Rapid, Limited express and local trains. These all go from the same platform for each line so you have to make sure to get on right one. Shall have to ask to make sure I get local next time. Was only a small 500jpy ($5) but don't want to pay each time.
