TOKYOMar.27 (Mon)

We start the day having breakfast in a restaurant at Tsukiji Fish Market (Not tuna Auction), which is known to be the biggest fish market in the world. The Tsukiji Outer Market, known as the Jogai Shijo, is Japan's "Food Town", where one can encounter all of Japan's traditional foods. A mixture of wholesale and retail shops along with numerous restaurants line the streets, and new culinary trends are born here. Take a walk around and experience the taste of Japan first hand.

Today, Kimono girl get on the bus with you and spice up the sightseeing!!
We head out to the Imperial palace. The Imperial palaceis the primary residence of the Emperor of Japan. It is a large park-like area located in the Chiyoda ward of Tokyo and contains buildings including the main palace, the private residences of the Imperial Family, an archive, museums and administrative offices. It is built on the site of the old Edo Castle and the beautiful cherry flower in spring.

We will visit Tokyo Skytree, a broadcasting and observation tower with the height of 634 meters (2,080ft). The view of the metropolitan Tokyo area from there will be spectacular. If the sky is clear, the Mt. Fuji can be seen in the distance.

Then we proceed to Asakusa Sensoji Temple, the Five Storied Pagoda and the traditional Nakamise shopping arcade. Nakamise is one of the oldest shopping centers in Japan. Since Shogun Tokugawa (Ieyasu) established Edo Shogunate, the population in Edo (old capital city, now Tokyo) grew as well as visitors to Sensoji Temple. In 1688 - 1735, those neighbors who performed receiving and serving visitors in Sensoji Temple were given special right to open their shops in the approach to the temple. This was said to be the beginning of Nakamise.

Then drive to Akihabara area and enjoy Japanese pop culture zone, the electronic district and the mecca for the anime (Japanese cartoon characters). Hundreds of electronics shops, ranging from tiny one man stalls specializing in a particular electronic component to large electronics retailers, line the main street and the crowded side streets around Akihabara. The character of Akihabara has constantly changed over the decades and continues to do so. In the last decade Akihabara has emerged as a center of Japanese otaku and anime culture, and dozens of stores specializing in anime, manga, figurines and other collectibles have filled the spaces between the electronics retailers.

After Akihabara, we go to Sakura Festival in Ueno park at night. You may watch cherry blossoms in full bloom.Viewing cherry blossoms at night is called 'yozakura o miru' or 'yozakura kenbutsu,' and it is Japanese unique custom.
