It's now Sunday December 22nd and my first full day in Tokyo.
Now I had added the breakfast option to my hotel room for my stay as that's one meal I like to know is taken care of.
The Park Hotel offers a western and Japanese buffet for breakfast.
An incredibly friendly train attendant helped me out and I gave her a pin as a thank you. There is no tipping in Tokyo. They take great pride in their work so tipping is considered bad form, you don't tip the cab driver or the baggage handlers so that's why I brought pins with me. A small gift means much more.
I managed to find Chris and we were off to Harajuku. Every guide book said to go on a Sunday as then you'd see the teenagers of Tokyo an the Harajuku Girls.
I saw some pretty short skirts all over Tokyo and especially in Harajuku, I guess in Japan it's all about the legs.
We stopped off at Daiso which is a Yen Store (Dollar Store) where Chris advised I get a hand towel as the public washrooms in Tokyo are all over the map, some may not have hand dryers or towels or soap. Daiso is also a great place to pick up souvenirs.
We walked through Yoyogi Park which is beautiful and saw a few street preformers. This one are caught my attention.
Tomorrow Part 3 - Where I visit the Imperial Palace and Tokyo Disneyland.
