... hotel. After a sleep we went to a hotel restaurant - it turned out to be quite fancy & super expensive (17,000 yen which is about $190) for strange food which none of us really liked. Anyway, off to bed. Breakfast in the hotel was yummy and included in our rate so very easy. Then we went out walking around our neighborhood. Some cute side streets ended in a park near Tokyo Bay where the boys chased pigeons. We had some snacks ...
... park areas :) There were so many school children around. We then went to the Tokyo National Museum.
One of the cool parts of the Museum was iron armour from about the 4th century. It was all rusted and flaky but all in one piece still. It was impressive. There was even armour to cover a horses head, very cool.

Like alot of places in Japan the museum had rentable lockers for 100 yen as well - so you don't need to lug your bag around the place - how convenient :)
The roof of the museum was an intersting place too, there was a garden and tables and chairs everywhere ...
