A new day in a new place
I wish this was my bathroom. This is actually the very nice bathroom at the Hotel Villa Fontaine Hamamatsucho. Nothing like a deep bath tub!
Not that exciting but here is the bed. Which was a bit hard but sleeping on top of part of the comforter helped. Must remember to ask for a second one next time. Also important is my much used traveling companion, the Tokyo City Atlas. Number one thing to bring to Tokyo.
The lovely view outside my window. It was kind of fun to see the salary men hard at work. I did make sure to keep my drapes closed, didn't want to distract them from their work by accidentally flashing them.
And the view below. I guess one gets over the fear of showing your drying underwear to the office folk.
So first full day in Tokyo and I am off. This is Shibaura Unga canal coming off of Tokyo Bay.
I find the little details interesting. Like these pavers on the way to Hinode Station.
Opposite direction of Shibaura Unga Canal on the way to Hinode Station.
One of the things I like about Tokyo is how you can come across art work when you least expect it. This is the side of the Art Hotel in Hamamatsucho.
Looks interesting both in person and on their web site. I will have to check it out more. However right next to the train tracks.
Hinode Station on the New Transit Yurikamome Line. Which is an automated transit service. Very cool to ride in.
Inside Hinode Station.
Looking back at part of the Tokyo Skyline.
And Rainbow Bridge. Something I need to look into, better places to take photos of the bridge.
So just where was I going? Over there, Odaiba Island.
