Headed over to Yokohama for the afternoon, had lunch with Tanaka-san and his family, then met up with Yuka and did a bit of shopping.
Japan March 2013
Some shots of the sun rising over Tokyo from our hotel room on the 49th floor of the Ritz Carlton.
Erika in her rather nice cot.
Erika and Chie in the bathroom.
Erika looking a bit cheeky.
Breakfast in the cafe attached to the hotel. This croissant wasn't bad.
Chie's friend who works at the hotel gave us this lion chef.
Walking through one of the many passageways of Tokyo Midtown.
Chie and Erika looking at the view.
Some can coffee. I'm not really sure I actually like this stuff, but always have a strange urge to buy it every time I go to Japan.
Dressing Erika - today was hina matsuri (girl's day) which seemed like as good an excuse as any for Erika's first outing in her Liberty print dress.
Smartphone is medias? I'm really not sure what this is meant to mean.
On the train on the way to Yokohama. Note carefully the shirt I'm wearing here.
Changing trains en route to Yokohama.
Now at Tanaka-san's house in Yokohama, having lunch with his family.
Tanaka-san and his wife, and Erika.
Me and Tanaka-san with Erika. Note I'm wearing a different shirt now - one Tanaka-san lent me - thanks to Erika.
Bic Camera in Yokohama. Quite an unusual building.
We met up with Yuka to do a bit of shopping in Yokohama, here's a silly picture outside a British "pub".
Tempura in a place in Yokohama. I think we all agreed it actually wasn't very good.
Chie and Yuka and their tempura.
Me, Yuka and Erika.
Back at our hotel, another night view from our room.
