Day 161 – Tokyo, Japan
We were hoping to kill two birds with one stone today in that we wanted to accomplish several trip related “to dos” while at the same time embark on some sightseeing of Tokyo. Unfortunately all of our “to dos” failed to materialize (the Russian embassy was closed, the American embassy only operates on appointments, and the American Airlines office in Tokyo is completely clueless about the One World Alliance) but we did visit many interesting areas of Tokyo (Shinagawa, Shiba, Roppongi, and Shibuya). I especially loved Shibuya, which was an extremely happening part of town. Shibuya offers some great shopping and culinary options.
