TravelPod Member ReviewsGrand Prince Hotel New Takanawa Minato
This is our first stop and it is beautiful. I was most impressed with the "cool" toilet in our room. The room is very comfortable with two double beds, a flat screen TV, a desk, a mini refrigerator, a sofa and a small balcony. It was truly a welcome sight after waiting hours in the hotel lobby cold and tired from our flight.

With a little help, I found the Dandy. I took the elevator up to Registration on the 6th floor. As soon as I stepped out of the elevator I was confronted with tatami mats, which you're never supposed to walk on in your shoes.

Then I stopped on Sony building, Ginza. 5th Avenue, NY. What shall I tell you - the Japaneses fought the American so firmly, and now their center looks American, more latin words then Japanese; just imagine" on 10.3.1945 Tokyo was bombed and half of it burnt. 100,000 Japanese died in 1 night - what for?!
... is filled with these beautiful trees. The Palace is also surrounded by an outer and inner mote. Then we headed through the Ginaza Shopping district, which looked like any major shopping street in New York Paris or LA, filled with LV, GUCCI, Prada and more. Then we had a lunch break in the business district and we ate and had a starbucks for dessert. The afternoon part of the tour was great as well, our first stop here was the Hama-Rikyo garden with a tidal pool ...
... if only British winters were like this. Asakusa quickly proved to be a nice, charmingly friendly 'old school' area, packed full of tiny ramen/sushi cafes/restaurants, little boutique shops as well as the graceful Sensoji Temple. It's at the end of the convenient Ginza subway line and located geographically just to the northwest of Tokyo city centre - all in, a good base.
The next day, we were up bright and early for a mammoth all-day Tokyo session. About 8am ...
