Flew out to Tokyo today! Actually landed on the 16th at 9am, 12 hours after leaving Heathrow. Slightly crazy place! First walk around after finding the hostel was up to a market area for food and a look at what we had around us.

Day 1:
Went out and wondered around Shinjuku and Shibuya
Saw loads of lights! missed being chatted up in the gay district, understood nothing!!!

Day 2:
With Cornelia (aka dull light girl) went to Tokyo centre (palace was a bit boring), then went to Ginza - beavan hungry, went to sony building. then Rhoppongi - yakuza (the mafia) allegedly chop fingers off, had first beers, went to a bar which turned into a stretch club. Shibuya for drinks - bright lights when pissed... interesting!

Day 3:
Odebai - saw Asimo most advanced robot in world, then went to the science museum, some americans chatted us up! wrong!
travelled to Kyoto on the night bus, bus!

Day 4:
