Tokyo with Rachel!

May 1st - 4th

For Golden week (3 national holidays in a row) Rachel and I decided to spend 4 days in Tokyo.

Day one - we caught the overnight bus there on Friday night which meant we arrived at 7am, dropped our luggage off at the hotel and headed out sight seeing. We went up the Metropolitan Government building which has an amazing view of Tokyo, found the LOVE sculpture, found Burger King, Rachel tried the batting cages, had a nap, met up with our friend Makoto before going out dancing all night with Em and Jody!

I miss Burger King - it only exists in Tokyo!

Day two - we slept in and then headed to Harajuku for shopping and people watching, Yoyogi park and met Em and Jody. We went to probably the most amazing Mexican restaurant ever near Harajuku - thanks to Jody!
