Tokyo

A main motivation for moving to China (aside from the whole job thing of course) was the traveling that we could do while here. Yes, we would be able to explore throughout China (Beijing, Hangzhou, and next up Yellow Mountain and Harbin), but suddenly, places like Malaysia and Thailand were only a short flight away. So when our friends Kat and Stuart asked us to join them for a weekend in Tokyo, we packed our bags and jetted off to the Land of the Rising Sun.

Tokyo Skyline

Shibuya at night

Early morning fish market

Our traveling crew

Lunch at Gonpachi (the inspiration for the restaurant in Kill Bill)

Shinobazu Pond

Entrance to the Imperial Palace

National Garden
 
 A parade of some sort for the Tokyo Sky Tower, which is on her head?

 Sensoji Temple


 Besides temples and gardens, there was sushi, soba, beer, and an insane amount of laughs. Our final dinner ended with 27 beers and tears of laughter running down each of our faces. Not a bad way to end a fabulous weekend in Japan.
