Once we had viewed this we walked past the imperial palace. Closely guarded by the imperial household agency you can't get very close and no visitors are allowed inside apart from around Xmas time and new year. We wanted to visit the gardens but these seem guarded too so we gave that a miss.
Tokyo station is a short walk away and so we walked there in search of some lunch and a little shopping opportunity for Emma
Also part of the station is Tokyo Character street. Here is everything Kawaii or cute and Emma was in her element and soon had Daddy's credit card working. Mummy was fairly happy with a mini snoopy town too. Great stuff.
A 10 min walk from the station you get to Ginza which is not far from our hotel. We made a stop at the Sony Building which showcases the latest gadgets and accessories from Sony. A couple of other shops later - Itoya 9 floors of stationery including beautiful Japanese wares and Toy Park - we made our way home.
We tried Japanese fast food this evening from Hanamaru. udon noodles and Katsu. We tried it but food wasnt as great as our expectations. Definitely lost in translation
