It was time to check out of Shibuya City Hotel. After finishing the formalities, took a cab to the JR SOUTH ENTRANCE Shinjuku since we had to board the Shinjuku-Kawaguchiko direct train on Platform#12. I strongly advise you to avoid taking a subway/local train to Shinjuku and boarding the Shinjuku-Kawaguchiko direct train. Shinjuku station is huge and you will get lost with all the crowd. Not to mention that bags you need to drag along with you. I have ...
My flight from Takamatsu to Tokyo was first thing in the morning. I was lucky enough to even catch a glimpse of the top of Mount Fuji as I flew. I arrived at Narita airport, managed to find the place to buy my train pass and then located the train I needed.

... The park is smack dab in the middle of the city and is beautiful. Somehow all of the trees have their green leaves despite the snow on the ground and the evidence of a recent ice storm. The paths were secluded and even though there were many people in the park, we felt alone. In the middle of the park we came upon a giant temple and shrine. It is open to the public so we had a walk around. It was basically a giant open courtyard with a section for people to pray at ...
... but, asides from some spectacular temples, there wasn't too much to see so I went back to Asakusa for some sushi. I absolutely loaded up on the stuff and, with a few hours still before my flight, I wandered around the grounds of the Senso-ji temple again to take in this beautiful area at night. Content that I had made the most of my time in Tokyo I made my way to the airport for my night flight to my next destination, ...
