Our Last Day - October 22

We had been so lucky with the weather, despite being humid, there was no rain during the day...until we woke in the morning. It wasn't going to stop us from enjoying our last full day.
After breakfast, caught the subway to the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.
The Teahouse overlooking Kaminoike Pond.






Trying to balance a camera while holding an umbrella with the wind blowing.

Another subway ride away took us to Kappabashi Street, the home of plastic display food for restaurants.



 The fried rice wok toss, the detail was very authentic looking.


Our final dinner was a sushi train at Kitchen Street underneath Tokyo Railway Station.


Each coloured plate, a different price, interesting how they calculated the bill. An electronic scanner was waved down the side of the plate tower and digitally recorded.
And this was how we felt after the delicious food!!

  1. The gardens look beautiful.

    I've always been fascinated by the plastic food displays in Japanese restaurants, but didn't realise they are mass-produced!
