20 hours, finally made it!
20 hours later, I finally made it to the Royal Park Hotel in Tokyo. The 12.5 hour plane ride was pretty rough as I sat in the middle seat of the middle row between my friend and this spawn Satan of a child that couldn't sit still, kicked and punched everything that moved. No wonder her mother was nowhere to be found, she probably was like "Allison, you sit right here, but Mommy is in First Class cabin if you need me."
It was about 11:30PM after getting out of the airport and we still had about a 30 minute train ride to get to the hotel. First thing that I noticed about Japan is how clean it is. There is absolutely zero trash on the streets, no overfilled trash cans, let alone gum stains on the sidewalks. We get out of the famous Tokyo Station (the oldest train station) and hail a taxi to go to our hotel.
After dropping our luggage off in the hotel, we head out exploring the city of Tokyo. Every street has multiple vending machines, sometimes conjoined vending machines will sell the same sodas. I had my first meal

Our hotel, not too shabby.
in Japan and it was some good ole fashioned Ramen with Gyoza. Kind of a boring night, but tomorrow will be more packed.
I have a mobile internet reader so I can get Facebook messages, I am also 17 hours ahead. With that said, I am from the future and I am here to tell you that the New Star Wars film has a good side and a dark side. The movie also sets itself up for a sequel. There's this guy named Han Solo. Sorry to spoil it for you guys.
