One day guided tour in Tokyo

I did a one day tour in Tokyo with my friends from Singapore.

I’m with an adorable 2 yr old boy and a 6 yr old girl!

I picked up them at the hotel in Shinjuku.

1: Meiji Shrine

The first stop was Meiji shrine in Harajuku.
It’s dedicated to Emperor and Empress Meiji in 1920.

At the time, 100,000 trees were donated by people from all over Japan in honor of the couple.

Agriculture experts have made a 200-year plan for this artificial forest to become a natural forest, and various species of trees have grown alternately.

It’s 102 years passed now, looks like an huge ancient forest already.

A Japanese wedding procession was passing by the temple grounds!

It’s a beautiful scenery !

We took photos with a girl and boy with kimonos.

2: Sushi lunch

We went to a restaurant called “Heiroku shi” in Omotesando.

They have an English menu.

It is a kaitenzushi, ( conveyer belt sushi) but you can order anything you want.

So we ordered everything we wanted and enjoyed freshly made delicious sushi!

You write your order on a piece of paper on the table and give it to the waitress.

The price was 3940 yen for 4 people.

3: Zojoji temple

We went to Zojoji Temple.

It is a temple of the Jodo sect, founded in 1393.

It is located next to Tokyo Tower, so we took a picture of the two together.

There are many Jizo buddha statues with pinwheel.

These are for abortion babies and babies passed away in early age.

It’s sad but we feel the love from the parents and family .

4: Tokyo Tower

We climbed to the main deck of the Tokyo Tower, paying 1,200 yen.

It offers a good view of Tokyo Bay and the Tokyo Sky Tree.

We enjoyed looking down (150m) through the see-through floor!

It’s scary!!

5: Yurikamome line

We took the Yurikamome Line.

This is a computer-driven train that goes to the man-made island of Odaiba.

Since there is no driver, we sat in the driver’s seat at the very front and enjoyed the view.

6:Odaiba seaside park

We went to Odaiba Seaside Park to play in the sand.

Everyone was relaxing on the beautiful beach.

We sat and rested for a while.

The 2 and 6 year olds painted on the beach and played in the water of Tokyo Bay.

7: Statue of Liberty

We saw the Statue of Liberty.

Odaiba Seaside Park is home to the Statue of Liberty, which was installed in an event commemorating the 150th anniversary of the friendship between Japan and France.

Although smaller in size than New York, it can be enjoyed here along with the beautiful Rainbow Bridge.

Of course we took photos!

8:Water bus

We returned to Tokyo by water bus.

The boat was designed by cartoonist Leiji Matsumoto and is very futuristic.

We enjoyed the view of Tokyo Bay on the rooftop deck, saw the Rainbow Bridge up close, and passed under it.

It was just dusk and the sky was beautiful.

9: Ginza

We went to Ginza.

It is the most famous shopping street in Japan.

The night view was very beautiful.

A sports car, Fairlady Z, was on display at the Nissan building.

10:Italian restaurant Capri

We had dinner at an Italian restaurant.

This was the end of the tour.

2 year old and 6 year old did their best until the end!

Thank you very much.

I hope you enjoy Japan more!

I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
