Roppongi and Metropolitan ObservatorySeptember 9, 2019 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C
Typhoon Faxai threw a spanner in the works of our plan to visit Mount Takoa today, the strong wind and heavy rain in the early hours of the morning messed up the trains for the day so we decided to stay in Tokyo instead.
Luckily there was still plenty left to see and we started off in Roppongi where we saw a pond full of space fish (the descendents of the first fish born on the International Space Station) and a giant spider standing guard outside a huge skyscraper. Then we visited the Fujifilm photo gallery and camera museum.
In the evening we went back to Shinjuku for a brilliant dinner, ramen noodles, fried rice, miso soup and gyoza dumplings. Really fincsi and Vera invented a new chopsticks technique. We also found a cool alley full of pubs called Omoide Yokocho.
After dark we went up to the 45th floor of the Metropolitan Building where there is an observatory with amazing 360° views of Tokyo.Read more
