Excellent hotel and the rooms are good and very clean. The rooms are huge (based on Tokyo satndards), but it is far from shopping areas and not lcated right into the train station. It is only 5 mins walk (again, Tokyo standards) to the nearest station and the hotel provided free shuttle to Takandobaba station leaving the hotel every 30 mins.

... I had no trouble finishing it and it wasn't too filling.
I then wandered around a couple of arcades on the way to the station and decided that I'd had enough of the crowds and was ready to head back to Makuhari. I only got a little bit lost finding my way to platform #13 because I took one wrong turning at an intersection. After about 100 metres I knew that I didn't know where to go next and was lost. I looked around until I spotted a young man in Uniform and repeating the ...
... Once we were through there were a number of information boards before making our way to the main Shrine. It is made up of arches and roofs but doesn't really have an inside as the Shinto's believe in Gods of nature so they need to be able to see their Gods. They had large wooden boxes around the outside that you had to throw coins in, then clap loudly twice (so the gods could here you) and then bow and pray to the shrine. We then saw a wall around a big tree where people ...
... had a fantastic sushi lunch at Tsukiji Fish market (probably the most famous place to eat sushi in the world), and explored some other older neighborhoods of Tokyo in the north.
On the second day we explored Shibuya and Shinjuku. I will let the pictures do the talking for those places.
Overall, I can tell you that it is a good thing I have a lot of places to see after Japan because it is going to be hard to leave. ...
... I got off the train. It was very busy and I had no idea what was going on. I can see how Shinjuku is called one of the busiest stations in the world. There are so many train lines and people and a shopping mall in the station it is so easy to get lost! We took my luggage back to Nikki and Yuji's place which was in a small town called Honacho. A small apartment in a nice area. We decided to go to a small festival in Asakusa for the afternoon and to get some lunch. ...
... at this place that was "off the beaten path" and down a dark alley. We had Okenemiyaki, which means you cook the food yourself on a griddle that's on your table. You mix all the food together and then you put it on the griddle and make it into a circle. You then flip it over and when it's done you put this sauce and Japanese mayo on it. I cooked one of them and Michelle flipped. It was DELICIOUS!!! Afterwards we met up with James' wife and had a cocktail. It was a really fun ...
