Final Day Tokyo with Lady Liberty

Yesterday was my final day in Tokyo.

i did a few things on my last day.

- I went to an area of Toyko called Rappongi Hills, which I read about-but was just a area with lots of office buildings. There was an observation deck on a tall building, of which I went to, and had a nice sunny view of Tokyo. I walked downstairs and looked for the garden, which was supposed to have all of the different trees of Japan. I found it, but it was a lot smaller then I expected.


- I then took the metro to another metro, where I transferred to a monorail. The monorail took me to an island in Tokyo bay. where I got off the train near a promenade. The island had a replica of the Statue of Liberty which was constructed in 1998, as a tribute to Japan's ties to France. It was right on the promenade, overlooking a bridge called The Rainbow Bridge. It looked nice on a sunny day.


- Next I went to the shopping mall next door, who's main attraction was a robot that gave answers to tourism questions when you asked. The mall was average with usual stores, and the robot was out of order.


I took the monorail back, and took a metro back to Akihabra, the area of town for freaks and geeks which I visited the first day. i went to the area where the camera shops we're, and looked at camera equipment. Then I had a final plates of sushi at the conveyor belt sushi place. i was going to have a sundae at the Maiddreamin cafe, where girls dressed as maids in short skirts serve food and put on a shoe, but I went up to the cafe, and there we're so few folks there it was depressing. Plus I didn't want to pay the $5.00 cover charge.


i then went back to the hostel. It was sad to check out. I enjoyed my time here, and meeting others. Sure I am the old man out-twice as old as many others, and sometimes I act like an idiot while drinking (and sober as well), but I met lots of great people. After a few hours of relaxing and talking to some of the others, i got back on the metro to the bus station, for the bus to Kyoto.
