... grounds is prohibited, but the East gardens of the Imperial complex is open to the public, so we made the most of this. The gardens are picturesque in all the ways you`d expect of a Japanese garden: calm, with a small waterfall flowing into a pool of brightly coloured carp. All this with Tokyo`s impressive urban centre towering in the background, you get a real sense of Japan present and past wandering in the gardens.
Ginza is Tokyo`s answer to Oxford street. We headed there on ...

... back here again. On the other side we didn't go up the cable car because I'm not great on heights so after a picnic sitting at the other end of the lake we got the boat back again. However I was really pleased with our decision that we'd seen enough of Tokyo in a single day and we should come out and try and see Mount Fuji.

I felt really nize and fuzzy and warm all over coming out of the onsen and changed into my yukata again. As i was about to work on my blog a Japanese guy approached me and asked me if he could borrow some of my time. (yes that's what he said) He had made a brochure (in english) for ...

... actual bullettrains that have been in use on the Shinkansen. It was not only possible to view them from the outside but also enter them and view the inner workings of each train. Pretty awesome if you ask me. :-) There were also several simulators in which you could learn how to ride a bullettrain and i was really anxious to try it. But since there are so many people wanting to try and only a few simulators you have to be lucky that your ticket gets picked out of the raffle ...
