Japan Trip - Tokyo Part Two

Here we go! Next day and a tour of Meiji Shrine in the sun. 

Collection of sake barrels.

The huge Torii gate entrance where you are mentally purified. 

Everyones hopes and dreams written here. 

Physically purifying your body by cleansing yourself in these waters.

Afterwards we took a trip to the Imperial Palace Gardens. 

Tea house.

Next up was Asakusa Shrine and marketplace that runs through it.

Five-story pagoda. 

The most amazing green tea ice cream sandwiches.

I was very tempted to buy one of these masks.


Chocolate banana on a stick anyone?

Then onto a boat trip around Tokyo bay. 

We had a little explore of Odaiba where there are lots of shops ...and a copy of the statue of liberty. 

Finished off with a view of Tokyo Station in the early evening.
