I'm near Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) - Say Hello!

Tokyo Tower

During my short trip, I passed through a few of the areas I had been to before. Nothing really changed, which surprised me as I was expecting to see lingering damage from the 2011 earthquake.  Since I was short on time, I could only pick one thing to do. I chose to visit the Tokyo Tower, a communications tower and tourist trap.  Unfortunately I arrived just as they were closing and was met with the same Japanese hospitality (read: sarcasm) I found the first time I visited.

I walked around Shiba park until the fog (and rain) rolled in.  I managed to grab some amazing pictures of the skyline from the hotel room and surrounding areas during my short stay.

I will say, that Tokyo and Japan (in general) is still quite expensive to visit – If you’re planning a trip here, have lots of patience and money.
