Arrived in Tokyo

Well after a very long flight and three planes later I arrived in Tokyo as planned and on time. Leaving LA at 1am turned out to be a pretty good idea in terms if getting some sleep. Basically you are already tired and then you travel entirely in the dark until you arrive in Tokyo some 12 hours later. The cabin in the plane is dark and there is not a lot of activity going on. I slept a good 8 hours. I arrived at 5am on Thursday so I lost a full day in there someplace. I'll pretty much have the day to myself and will try to stay awake all day and hopefully quickly get adjusted to the time change.

I am such a lucky guy to have such a great husband. Although Kent has to work today since my flight arrived so early he got up early and met me at the airport to help me maneuver the train system to the hotel! He had also written them out in great detail in the event that I he was unable to met me.

It's a good thing he met me - it seemed very complicated! Here are a few pictures I've taken so far.

This is a picture of our room at the Conrad Hotel. It's very nice!

This is a view of Hama Rikyu Garden from the hotel lobby which is on the 28th floor of the building.

This is the Nijubashi Bridge on the grounds of the Imperial Palace. Beautiful grounds.
