Good Morning from Tokyo! It is about 9:15 am Wednesday. We survived the Typhoon we had here yesterday which seems to be a common occurrence here because other than the trains stopping for a while it was business as usual LOL.

Today we are off to the Ghibli Studio Museum which is the makers of Anime (Japanese Animation) such as Spirited Away, Howls Moving Castle, Totoro and most recently Arietti. Then off to a near by city park where we can see the abundant Cherry Blossoms which happens to be the main reason we are here the first week of April. This is Cherry Blossom time. Have some lunch and maybe take a paddle boat ride along the park lake.

Then to the Roppongi Hills…this is the city in the city. a modern Tokyo landmark. at the center is the 54-floor Mori Tower with its museum and observation deck. artistic features such as the 10 m high spider by Louise Bourgeois and a Japanese garden provide additional variety during a stroll through Roppongi Hills. After shopping and site seeing we will then decide where and what to eat for dinner! Ok….maybe we will actually try some Sushi tonight… Mata-ne! (See ya later!)
