The Lights of Tokyo
You may notice from the photos I've posted from Japan that I have not included photos of the sprawling city. Tokyo is a huge city, with very tall modern buildings. I chose to show a different side of Tokyo so far.
Those last few photos were a little blurry, but you get the idea. We had a really delicious dinner, followed by an evening of Karaoke. The Japanese LOVE their karaoke, and I don't exactly need much encouragement to start singing...so away I went. Tomorrow I head to Korea, so stay tuned!
