... subway. I was able to purchase two stored-value pasmo prox cards at the first station. Unless you're a glutton for punishment or have an interest in arcane fare schemes, these cards are required.

Our next actual stop was the Imperial Palace East Garden. It was pretty but definitely more manicured than Yoyogi Park. There was a tidal pond with a tea house and such. After Yoyogi, it seemed ...
... t say no...) you know I have already been there and experienced a perfectly beautiful sunset. That's why I decided to go there with my family to experience it and to have dinner, enjoying the sunset. Supposedly the energy saving time is over, but somehow the rainbow bridge was not fully illuminated. But I think the pictures turned out well :-)
Whe arriving to Odaiba we were greeted with a surprise, they were having a mexican fiesta, offering mexican food, dances and also real ...
