Today we decided to investigate the Imperial Palace, the weather was fantastic! Wandered around the grounds and saw some some samurai armour, ceremonial displays for the 20th anniversary of the Enthronement of His Majesty the Emperor (national holiday). We had a laze in the park in the middle in the sun before heading off for Tokyo Tower. Along the way we saw some absolutely huge spiders hanging from some trees, trying to get on my head. On arrival to TT we took some snaps and tube time to Roppongi. We found a retro little eatery called KOHMEN with tv's on the table with crazy Japanese music. We ate noodles with pork and Asahi beers. Had a look around Roppongi which was really vibrant and manic, saw the TT which was all lit up. Got the tube back to Kuramae for fear the system would close early for the holiday.
