Tokyo Tower
Meiji Jingu Shrine
Inside Sunshine City, in a corner of Namjatown, exists Ice-cream City. Strange flavours of ice-cream are stacked up in freezer cabinets, and these are the weird flavours you read about. fluffymark tried the shark fin soup and Dracula garlic flavours, where as I stuck to cherry blossom flavour.

Later that evening, just before sunset, we headed up the Tokyo Tower, which looks a bit like the Eiffel Tower, but is slightly taller and more colourful. From there, we could see skyscrapers glistening in the sunshine, and then as the sun disappeared behind the smog, we drank glasses of wine and watched the buildings, bridges and ferris wheels light up as it got dark.

The day after that, I wandered around Shinjuku, and then Harajuku, looking for cosplayers, and ended up at the Meiji Jingu Shrine, where there were many dolls, as well as a tree that had been impressively overtaken with cobwebs.

Soon after that, I left Japan and travelled to New Zealand.

I misread that, possibly appropriately as Ninjatown.

Some wonderful pictures, I need to go to Japan to hunt replicants!

Didn't quite make it to Ninjatown, unfortunately. Maybe next time. :) (And maybe by then I'll be a ninja.)

I've really enjoyed the photos of your trip.
Thanks for sharing them
