Enjoyed our stay in traditional Japanese accommodation. Near a train station but not in the centre of the city. Family really helpful and friendly, a good first impression of what to expect in Japan.

And “Here you can create powerful.” And “When you wear colorful clothes, may the colorful closthes bring you happiness and cheerful days.” The latter is from a store called, “Starvations”.

... ticket, which will cover all the trains and metros in Tokyo, is 1580 yen (about £13). Our first ride is 15 minutes or so to Ikebukuro, another mini-city where our hotel is located. The station here is not quite as big, but still seems to be massive. You go out of it through a large department store. Once I reach the 14th floor of the Metropolitan Hotel, I'm able to put my bag down and begin to enjoy this place ...
