... a challenge we opted for the train and after the poor guy had to repeat himself a number of times, he waved goodbye to us as the doors closed on the first leg of this journey. 3 trains later and more very helpful advice from randoms in the stations, we made it to our hotel.

This took us across Tokyo's port which was nice to look at as we crossed over the very impressive Rainbow Bridge. We got off at Daiba station and walked to the Emerging Science and Innovation Museum which is full of interactive displays and exhibits.
