After dinner, our tour headed over to Tokyo Tower, which is the world's tallest self-supporting steel tower and overlooks all of downtown Tokyo - it also, curiously enough, looks a lot like the Eiffel Tower. A quick elevator ride to the top left us in a dark room surrounded by four walls of glass with spectacular views, smooth jazz music playing on the speakers, a gift shop, and video touch screens explaining information about the various views and the tower itself.
We returned to the hotel and a small group of us decided to try our luck at the subway system. After much hesitation and blocking of the turnstyles and ticket machines, we successfully made it to Shinjuku where we wandered around and stopped by the four story arcade. Shinjuku also happened to be the destination of the following day's adventure. This time, however, it was completed by the 6 story electronics store (with sushi shaped flash drives) and lunch at a conveyor-belt sushi bar.
Next: My dorm in the suburbs.
