Sadly, we never made it onto Mount Fuji, but on the plus side, the kids got to play in fresh snow!
When we could no longer feel our fingers, we got on the train to Tokyo. We had decided to stay in Shibuya, and were excited to experience Shibuya Crossing, which is sort of like Times Square in New York.
This morning we set off to the Tokyo Tower. The special observatory that’s at 250m is closed for renovations, but we still had a great view of the city from the 150m main observation deck. We even stood bravely on the glass floor.
As a major plus, the food court at the tower had enough different types of food that everyone in the family actually found something they wanted to eat, which is possibly the first time that’s happened in over 2 weeks.
On a side note, Aarrrrgh…
It was looking like rain when we left Tokyo Tower, so we decided to take a peak around Roppongi Hills, in the hope that it would be mostly indoors. As you can see from the pictures, 1) it didn’t rain – it snowed, and 2) we were mostly outdoors.
That’s one big spider!
