Not much sleep due to booking accommodation for the next few days in Tokyo, but made the Bullet Train in good time. Paul slept, Sarah read. Got a little lost finding the Ryoken. Saw a few Harajuka girls in the district of the same name. There was also a festival with traditional dress dancers and singers. Highlight of the day were the dancing Elvis’. They took it all very seriously.
Finished the day off at the Government twin towers observatory. There was limited view on the 45 floor due to the cloud/rain, but still impressive. When walking back to the hotel, the relentless rain made it feel like a scene from Bladerunner.
Finished the day with a noodle meal in the Ryoken and booking 4 nights in Pushkar, India for the camel fair (oh, and Sarah nearly flooded the room).
