The rooms are what you want from a Tokyo hotel. Not huge but clean, well appointed and with an amazing location. Mere steps from Asakusa Metro station this is easy to find and in the heart of tourist heaven, where Kaminarimon Dori meets the Nakamise Dori market. Private bathrooms, clean comfortable futon and a great price. Would happily recommend. Make use of the local restaurants and cheap liquor at convenience stores.

While waiting for our food I reviewed the information I had about Akihabara to plan where we should go next. This ended up being the @Home Cafe where we had a drink (and dessert in Victor's case) surrounded by girls dressed as french maids. It was quite the experience as we had to sing along with our waitress while she shook our soda syrup drinks. A part of every package is a photo taken on ...
After the big cities of Hiroshima and Kyoto it was time for a bit more leisurely part of the trip. So we headed north in the direction of the Japanese Alps. First stop is Takayama. Takayama is a peaceful town where in spring and autumn one of the big festivals in Japan takes place. But we only found out about it a couple of days before we planned to visit Takayama. All the hotels were fully booked so we had to leave on the day the festival started ;-( ...
... the ceiling. There were plenty of bowls, cups and plates, but only one small shelf with about half a dozen different teapots. And that's when we saw it. Sitting on the end of the shelf was a large, round teapot that begged us to take it home. It was painted a light sage green colour with navy blue vertical stripes. It had a hammered textured on the outside and a dark brown bamboo handle. It seemed so perfectly imperfect that we knew it would be ours.
... and tourists alike. When the trees do blossom, it's a clear sign that spring is upon Japan which I'm sure is always greeted with open arms here, much like it is in the UK. We took a nice stroll through the park, stopping at a couple of shrines there along the way. At around midday we headed to Shinjuku and got a quick bite to eat. We went to an observational level in a really tall government building. The view was lovely looking out over the city. It said you could see Mt. Fuji on ...
