We arrived at Tokyo Station and managed to get ourselves on the right train to go towards the bus terminal. We checked in at the counter and waited around for our tour to be called. The morning's itinerary consisted of visiting the Tokyo Tower, the Imperial Palace, and the Asakusa Kannon Temple. I enjoyed visiting the Tokyo Tower, especially since I have never been to the Eiffel Tower. I took a lot of photos from different angles, and purchased a small replica of the tower as a souvenir.
Next, we headed to the walls of the palace. I was a little disappointed with this part because all we did was stand on the outskirts of the walls as the tour guide told us some history about the palace.
We spend the entire afternoon in Tokyo Dome City, and probably would have spent most of the evening there too if I had planned in advance to get tickets to the ball game that night. I really enjoyed TDC, it had everything in one location and had something for everyone. In addition to the baseball stadium, there was also a park, a mall, a food court, bowling, and LaQua, the amusement park. First we walked around, taking everything in as we planned our afternoon.
Finally, we left Tokyo Dome City just as the crowds started showing up for the game. We took the train back to our hotel, and decided to stop to ride the ferris wheel that was one stop away from the Disney Resort, and was the same one we saw from Disney the night before. I got some great shots of Tokyo Bay and the city skyline. We then went to Ikspiari and ate dinner at the Rainforest Cafe (the 4th one I've been to!) before heading back to our hotel for the night.
