TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Prince Sakura Tower Tokyo Minato
Our hotel was absolutely perfect! It was so luxurious and perfect! I couldn't have asked for a more classier hotel in the middle of Tokyo! A must stay. And it was only a 5 minute walk from train station which makes it easy to travel around the city!

We arrive in Tokyo around 1pm after a 6.5 hr flight and take the train to our hotel. It takes about an 1hr. Unfortunately it is dull and pouring rain here. It reminds me a bit of England.
We can see our hotel from the Shingawa station but can't figure out how to get there with our bags and getting soaking wet. So we take a taxi across the …

impossible, but just have a look at the picture. I’m trying to think of
something funny to say about this, but I am simply drawing a blank as I giggle

... that would take me to the lower of the two observation decks. The ride up was really smooth and fast and i could barely notice the elevator accelerating and decelerating.
At 350 meters, i got out of the elevator and was treated to a beautiful top view of Tokyo. The sky was clear and it was great to get an impression of the size of this city. There were a lot of people and finding a good spot for viewing wasn't easy so i bought a ticket for the uppper observation ...
... we proceeded to our next stop, a boat ride across the lake. You could only see Mt. Fuji at the beginning of the trip but the lake itself was nice too. We ate lunch once we got off and then proceeded to the ropeway, where we were once again greeted by Fuji-san, as the Japanese call it. You have to transfer to a different ropeway somewhere in the middle, but at that stop you can also see Ōwakudani, which has some active volcanic vents. It was here that we got some more photos of ...
