227 - 9th September 2006 - Tokyo


The plane we flew on to Tokyo was huuuuuuuge! A 747 I believe - we were in row 67 and business class was on the first floor!


In Akasaka - The area where we stayed


The lampposts all had little rickshaw things on


The gate of the Hie-Jinja shrine in Akasaka


No idea what this says


A line of torii gates that lead up the steps to the shrine itself


This is the reward for the climb


A wedding was taking place whilst we were there


The dress was very elegant


This bell is used to summon spirits when prayers are made


This in an ablution area at the entrance to the shrine. You clean both hands and your mouth to purify yourself.


Shrine through the trees


Tokyo by night. The Shinjuku district


Very tall clock near times square
