Tokyo–Japanese for Too Damn Many People

Tokyo–Japanese for Too Damn Many People

Seems like everybody wants to say they’ve been to Tokyo.  Sort of like everybody wants to see Rock City or get run over by a speeding bus.  It just so happens that Tokyo–which wants to be NYC so much, its become LA–is a mix of both.  The crew took the Shinkansen up the coast to the capital city and took a boat excursion up the Sumida River, where we saw some lovely bridge and the world’s largest golden cheeto.  After an a hour of fighting the crowds at a nearby shopping district, it was back on the subway and retracing our steps to Osaka.

This Odaiba. The river is real. The island is man-made.

A suspension bridge. I’ll tell you what it’s name is later.

Cheesy.  Seriously.

Lunch.

So easy to ride, even a caveman can do it.

The infamous Japanese toilet, techno flush.

    Ah, the obligatory bathroom shot. Cool.
    I can’t wait to learn the name of the suspension bridge.
    Don’t leave me in suspense too long (bad pun intended).
