Spacious long-term rental-style accommodation. Not much in the immediate vicinity, but very conveniently-located to everything else in Tokyo by metro - most sights/neighbourhoods were 3-5 stops away from the Nagatacho station. Tons of restaurants about a 10-minute walk away in the Akasaka area.

... can pick this up from the outside. All this so that the hotel corridors remain pristine and one's laundry is kept private and discreet till picked up? Then there was the bathroom (it deserves a separate para all to itself). First the toilet - as one approaches the loo, the toilet seat cover automatically flips open. There were buttons to flip the toilet seat and toilet seat cover up and down in whatever combination you want (only toilet cover, only toilet seat, both). ...

We decided to separate our time in the city so we’d visit Asakusa, Ueno and Akihabara on the first day, Shinjuku, Shibuya and Harajuku on the second day and Tsukiji fish market on the third morning before we left for Nikko.
Our first stop in Asakusa was straight to Senso-ji, one of the biggest temple complexes in Tokyo and (luckily for us) only a two minute walk from ...
They say that attitude is everything. In this case, it was. I ended up going alone to the Quilt Festival this year, on a day I was both physically and mentally exhausted. At the time, I felt that though it certainly didn't come close to last year's standard, it was a solid year. There were much fewer bright colours, and pastels and muted tones dominated; there was also a definite trend of ombré, both of fabrics and effects.
... and such. You can also order veggies to grill. So they bring you your order and you put the strips onto the grill and they cook really fast, since they are such thin strips, when you take them and dip them in the sauce they give you (which is sooo good) and right into the mouth. Basically you’re getting your food straight from the grill without it getting cold or losing any of the juices on the plate. After a good meal we headed back to the hotel and called it a ...
... The onsen was amazing, it was so big. There was an inside section, made to look like Tokyo in the traditional Edo time complete with restaurants serving sushi, and many shops selling japanese objects. I even tried some cucumber sushi using my chop sticks, it wasn't very nice, sorry everyone, so I gave the rest of my sushi to some very thankful japanese women sat at the side of me. Still can't quite get used to people bowing to say thank ...
