Tokyo - Day 3

We all woke up early after going to bed at 9:00pm last night. Had an excellent breakfast in the New Sanno cafe, then took off for the Meiji Shrine, built to honor the beloved Japenese Emperor who died in 1912 after ruling for 45 years.

While at the shrine, we stumbled upon a traditional Shinto wedding ceremony procession. Very formal and very beautiful. Anna and Drew loved it.

Next we went to Harajuku, a fashion district that showcases the unique and eclectic style of Japanese young people. Very cool.

After Harajuku, we were back on the train again, traveling back to Electic Town that we visiting on Sunday. We needed some accessories for my camera and Mary's PDA. Found what I needed, but unfortunately were unable to find anything for Mary. Her PDA is Hewlett Packard, and American company, so they don't have much for it over here.

Finally got back to the hotel in time for dinner. After dinner, we packed our hiking equipment, went for a quick dip in the pool and hot tub, then settled in for the night.
