Japan Trip Days 16 and 17

Day 16, Jason enjoyed a relaxing day out with just Isaac at Akihibara, in a giant electronic goods store Yodibashi Akiba. I took the three littles to see the view at the top of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building.

Tokyo Skytree is another way to see the city but lines are long, crowds are big and tickets are expensive. The 45th floor of each of the two towers of the government building is free and set up just for tourists to enjoy 360 degrees of views.

An underground passage way provides a rain and wind free walk to the government building from Shinjuku station…

On a clear day you can see Mt. Fuji, but not today. The rain at ground level was actually flurries of snow at this level.

She and Simon supplement with McDonalds, which they detest at home but somehow it was a welcome choice on this day.

I am in love with all of the bikes! This one has two kid seats, matching rain flies and electric assist. I would love to try it out.
