Integrated Bose sound system in the ceiling, the toilet is electric and has a heated seat (want one of them for home), the bathroom has a long glass window which if you press a switch you can see right through into the bedroom and out to the view of Tokyo city and if you press it again the glass becomes frosted and private again - very cool!, it has a control system next to the bed, one unit which controls everything - air con, all the lights (mood options included), alarm, telephone and allows you to tell housekeeping if you want your room cleaned.
So we both went to bed and didn't sleep great but Ian seemed to not be so ill and woke up this morning thinking that today is a new day, no more illness we'll get out and enjoy the Tokyo sights together. I was so wrong, Ian still being ill and sick again meant that I was on my own, so I braved it this morning and went out for a look around the area local to our hotel. We are staying in Ginza which is quite a smart area by all accounts, high end shopping and lots of offices around. I left Ian and headed out in search of some money, we'ed had problems getting any out yesterday at the ATM's in the airport.
My feelings so far are that I love it, it's not too hectic, everything is in Japenese but you can still get by, the road signs are pretty clear and with a guidebook it shouldn't be too difficult.
It's now 10.30 am, shops were not open when I went out at 8.30 am this morning so I think I might pop out again on my own and go crazy with the credit card as Ian won't be with me to stop me!! HEHE!!
