craigandjosh’s Travel Diary

Location: Tokyo, Japan

MapOur last full day in Tokyo and last full day in Japan comes to a close. Tomorrow at 8pm we fly back to Australia.

Today was a shopping day. After a scrumptious and large breakfast we headed on the metro to Ginza, a famous shoppng disctrict in Tokyo, for some serious last minute shopping. We had a facial treatment booked for 4pm, so at the very last possible minute we abandoned shopping and returned to the Park Hyatt with our many bags in tow to prepare for our treatment. 70 minutes later we looked 20 years younger and very relaxed. But, with a 6pm dinner appointment on the 54th floor, there was no time to waste, so we had a quick spa and changed for dinner. Since it is our last night we started dinner with a glass of 1999 Dom Perignin champage. $50 a glass, thank you very much! Needless to say, 2 hours later the credit card was feeling considerably overweight, but we decided to head out to the area around Shinjuku station where there are lights and people to watch before coming back to the hotel. Craig is up having a spa as I type this and I am about to go lie in our very large bathtub at watch a movie.

A great day comes to a close. A great holiday comes to a close.

MUM: Tomorrow morning after breakfast (so around 11am, your time) I will put a new post up on here with all our flight details, etc). So, look out for that. We'll put another post up from the airport before we leave, and we'll call when we land in Sydney.

See everyone Saturday afternoon for KEVIN07!!!!!!

Don't forget to check out the new photos of Tokyo, including some great photos of Mt Fuji I took this morning from our bedroom window.
