Tokyo, Lost in Translation and Gundam

From Kawaguchiko we took a bus to the capital, Tokyo, where we stayed two nights. Check Maria's post about Tokyo for more information. You may also want to check my previous posts about Tokyo when I came to Japan on holidays two years ago: 1, 2 and 13! :)

We stayed in a youth hostel near the busy area of Asakusa. I hadn't seen that district before and I really liked it.

I went with Maria to some famous districts like Shinjuku, Akihabara or Shibuya.

Although the weather was really bad, it was good for taking pictures. Some parts of the city under the rain, covered with transparent umbrellas, reminded us of some scenes from the movie Lost in Translation.

In fact, we went to the same Karaoke room that appears in the movie Lost in translation. Check Maria's post to know more about it.

Finally we also visited Odaiba, an artificial island famous for its huge bridge, its replica of the statue of Liberty and its huge Gundam statue. It was a bit hard because at the same time a Typhoon was passing by Tokyo!
