Day 199… ok… up early for a BIG day walking around the various burbs of tokyo. We see the Imperial Palace (under renovations)  as well as one of the bigger shrines in tokyo, complete with traditional japanese weddings going on, quite the lovely spectacle! Even get to see a real life sumo guy heading off to a match! Then its on to the markets and the Shinjuku crossing, stopping on the way to interact with a fully working legit japanese cute robot! Then off to the government observation building to see Mt. Fuji, Tokyo Tower and the sunset before we take in the dazzling neon of tokyo, winding up oddly back near robot restaurant and the imax godzilla, with sound and lights now! Down at the markets in Takeshita St, we stumble on a tamagotchi store (with monchichi inside as well) and ice cream sushi! Fear not, just ice cream with fruit made to look like sushi… damn tasty too. Being dragged all over the VAST city of Tokyo by rail was actually quite the adventure and very exhausting… mentally shagged out.
