Day 3 in Tokyo

Today we woke up a bit later and after our French breakfast we set off for a shrine not far away set in beautiful gardens again. This one was built by the people of Tokyo to honour an emperor and empress who died in 1912 and 1914. They donated and planted 100000 trees. Very nice. We went here today because the date yesterday was not a lucky date for weddings, but today was so chie, our guide yesterday, told us to come today so we could see some Japanese weddings. Which we did. We saw 2 processions while we were there.
After that we caught the train to Akihabera, the electric city, where all sorts of electronics are sold in all sorts of shops. Lots of people, lots of noise. An experience.
We then went to look for a blogged about food alley, but after some frustrating walking around, we gave up, went to a sushi train type of place, then came back to the hotel, tired and ready for some down time. Luc went to find our restaurant for tonight. It is a Ninja theatre restaurant. We will see what that is like. Will blog about it later.
Off to Kobe tomorrow to see our friend kellie. Looking forward to seeing her and spending some time in her church.
