Meiji Jingu Gyoen near Harajuku -- Tokyo, Japan

This is a special garden at the Meiji Shrine.  There was also a well you could wait an hour to see, but we didn't do that.

The best part was the cafe.  They had snacks in a machine! It was a great way to cool off after a hot day.

Nijubashi Bridge -- Tokyo Japan

This is as close as I got to the palace.  People say you can get closer if you are there on the right day.

Four Seasons -- Tokyo, Japan

Do you know who this is?

His name is Ebisu.

Cromely read a plaque to me.  It said:

Ebisu:  He is a god of inviting good fortune while keeping away calamities, especially safety and prosperity of transportation, fishery and commerce. He is a guardian deity of the people who enjoy fishing, sailing and scuba diving

Conrad Hotel Lounge -- Tokyo, Japan

Sometimes it's nice to get out of the room and still relax.  This is the Executive Lounge at the Conrad Hotel where we stayed.

There were some other animals waiting for us in the room. You adopt them when you get a room at the hotel.  They seemed nice, but they talked kind of weird.
