Farewell to the East

Akihabara Morning (Tokyo) - Japan  2016

Party House - Japan  2016

Last day's entry from my journal: 

Hali and Mike take the train to Akihabara for breakfast at Vie de France. Not as many pastry choices as in the past (looks like they're getting into more savory lunch items) but what we had was good.

We check out, store luggage at the hotel, then walk over to visit the Koishikawa garden with Dan. Nice. Afterwards a stroll among the streets surrounding Suidobashi station. Lots of restaurants! Alas, we won't be able to try any of them. We need a longer stay!

Taxi to Tokyo Station. Lunch at a beef tongue restaurant (very good!), catch the Narita Express (last taken-from-train photos of the trip), then the seemingly unending escalators and lines at the airport. Some shopping. Flight home. Leave Japan 5:00 PM Saturday, arrive SFO 10:00 AM Saturday.
