Our friends A & W were honeymooning in Japan; we met up with them as soon as they arrived and accompanied them on a day tour of Tokyo.

We started with a trip to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, which had a wonderful view of the city.

Humping Dog USB drive in the gift shop @_@

Then we headed to Shibuya to say hi to Hachiko.

bought some soy milk tea from Mr. Bean

Mr. Bean was also selling pancakes with filling - but we didn't try any

Hello, Hachiko! :) 

Then Meguro for Sunday noon mass. But first, we had quick early lunch in Matsuya.

forgot what this was but it was a Korean-related dish :D

Meguro church

From Meguro, we took the train to Asakusa where A & W's hotel was located.

Komagata-do Temple
"According to the recorded history of Senso-ji Temple, Komagata-do Hall was built in 942. The principal image is the Buddhist saint Bato Kanzeon. The hall appears in pictures by woodblock artists such as Katsushika Hokusai and Ando Hiroshige. Although it is small, the hall was famous in old Edo (Tokyo). In 1923, it was burnt down during the Great Kanto Earthquake, and it was rebuilt in 1933."

the Sanja Matsuri (Sanja Festival) was ongoing when we were there
feet shots! :D
(I sat on the sidewalk because I got tired of standing.)

it was hot so we got some soft-serve ice cream - for ¥300

Off to Odaiba to meet Gundam. (My first time there!)

we took the monorail
