Greetings from Tokyo!! My mom and I are really enjoying our first day here. Our internal clocks are a bit screwed up though. We were up bright and early this morning. By the time the hotel’s (Hilton Tokyo) restaurant opened for breakfast, we were more than ready.
The restaurant only served a buffet which was fine by me. I was starving. I started out with an omelet and hashed browns.
The hash browns were insanely good. I had to have more. So I did.
I added some scrambled eggs and sausage to it. I didn’t eat all those potatoes…my mom shared them with me.
And for my last and final plate:
Bacon, waffle with syrup and a bit more potatoes. I couldn’t help myself.
After breakfast we were picked up for our half day Tokyo tour. We started out at the Tokyo Tower.
The views from the observatory area were amazing. Too bad it was such a rainy & cloudy day.
Our next stop was Meiji Shrine.
Our last stop was the Imperial Palace East Garden.
Really beautiful. I kept walking around thinking: I can’t believe I’m in Japan!
After our tour was over, we went back to the hotel to grab a quick lunch. At this point, I really wanted some Japanese food but the restaurant had mainly American food so I ordered a club sandwich.
My mom and I went to Tokyo Station to catch a train from Tokyo to Kyoto where we will meet my brother and his wife who have been in Japan for a few days.
Our train ride is about 3 hours to Kyoto. We will be there for a couple of days, then back to Tokyo! I really hope we can eat some sushi tonight!
