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.

This restaurant clearly works on volume of customers.
On the way home we had a Hageen Das ice cream, strawberry cheese cake, for $2.50!!!! Expensive in Japan, we think not ...
... local guide for the day pickved me up at 9am and we headed out. We first went to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office that has an observatory on the 45th floor where you can see all around Tokyo. Today is not a clear day but still the city seemed to go on forever! We made our way to Harajuka which is a famous place for teenagers to shop. Was very neat to see, wish I had more time as I am sure I could of found some great stuff for ...
... to figure out the lines, once again someone came to help - this is fast becoming the norm and it doesn't seem to be confined to a certain demographic, this helpfulness - we've had young, older, guys, girls - all uniformly helpful.
On the food agenda for today - sushi. Unfortunately we did not make reservations at Sukiyabashi Jiro (like we could afford to) so it's us dreaming of Jiro's sushi instead of Jiro doing the dreaming. On the recommendation of ...
