After deep consideration, i decided to take 1 month vacation to travel and my first place will be Tokyo..my 4th time to be there..but pretty nice. took CI104 from Taipei to Tokyo at 2:15pm and arrived there at 6:25pm on July 3..so total 3 hour and 10 minutes. after arriving in Narita airport, my cousin and I choose to take Keisei express 1,000 yen nto Nippori..then trasfer subway to the Mejiro station which we stay. It's a home stay own by Taiwanese and a new one..so very clean. only 8,000yen for double room and not far from station. as it's too late when we arrived there..so only went to supermarket to buy something to eat and then take a rest for preparing next day's trip.
July 4, since i have been to Tokyo for many times..but this was my cousin's first time there..so i decide to take her to visit some famous place. we bought 1 day subway pass ticket 710 yen to go to Ikebukuro, Ginza, Asakusa, Sensoji Temple, Hibiya Park, Tokyo tower, Harajuku, Omote-sando, Takeshita Street, Meiji Shrine, Shibuya and then back to our hotel. Ikebukuro has lots of shop and department; Ginza has more department store and more modern; Sensoji Temple - lots of tourist and it's worth to visit..start from the Kaminarimon, then lots of traditinal shop, after that to the temple..pretty nice. ; Hibiya Park - the park that located in the downtown..it's like central park in NY..but much smaller; Harajuku, Ometo-sando, Takeshita Street, Shibuya are all good places for shopping and can see lots of young people there; Meiji Shrine is my favorite in Tokyo.

July 6 - woke up..then took subway to Ueno station..then Keisei express to Narita airport....and took CO8 from Tokyo to New York at 4:35pm..arrived New York at 4:30pm..total 12 hours and 55 minutes..
