    I took it for the first time. Was waiting for the signal at the intersection with the road (^ ^). Buses run slowly.

    Felt fresh experience value and feel the taste of shitamachi area of Tokyo rather than through the eyes of the car by the Institute at pedestrian eye level slowly moving westward. In particular three-slip through the minowabashi, Arakawa and koshinzuka is usually hard to visit where I run. And he has that old slipped and enough charm.

    Flowers along the view out the window is one of the fun! Throughout the year various enjoy the flowers. Not as fast, but there is also a charm!

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
