The journey to Ginza took a little while, but this was partly due to an overly complicated route. Travelling at a busy time, conditions were crowded to say the very least. I'm glad I don't make that journey every day!
After meeting in Ginza, we headed to the restaurant. This is the best sushi restaurant in Japan and has 3 Michelin stars. Unfortunately, we didn't have reservations. Fortunately we had a "Plan B", there was another very good restaurant nearby.

En route, we saw that there is a Hooters in Ginza. Moving on.

Next up was a tour of the "House of Representatives" of the Diet of Japan (the lower house, the House of Councillers being the upper house). Kobayashi Senseis language skills (having a native language speaker) came in very handy. Plus he is the one who suggested the tour, so Kyle and I are very grateful.
Following on from this, we had a look around Ikebukuro and the Sunshine 60 shopping complex and tower. Unfortunately the weather limited the view from the observatory somewhat.
|Sunshine 60.... yeah, about that...
|I was player 2 - why do I have to be the girl?
So many thanks to Kobayashi Sensei for an incredible day. I've already said that if he's ever in the UK I'll be sure to show him as many sights as I can.
