Japanese Exchange - Tokyo Metropolitan Govenment Building and Harajuku
Today, we visited the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, which is conveniently located near to Kanto International School. Its twin towers are a major landmark in the area and houses two panoramic observation decks, one in each tower on Floor 45 at a height of 663 feet or 202 meters. It certainly was an amazing view of the city.
After lunch we headed out to Harajuku which is a major shopping area. This was one of our last opportunities to buy chopsticks, kimonos, green tea Kit Kats and other Japanese souvenirs. Mr Matsudaira again acted as our guide, taking us to an oriental bazaar which had an amazing variety of gifts.
