.Tony T. is the best, best limo driver and I had a relaxed Sunday drive to LAX International. JAL gets my vote for the best, best airline and business class was never better. I watched three movies that I had been avoiding….Dallas Buyers Club and 12 Years a Slave along with another I may mention in a future blog. The food kept coming including Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream. The plane was a beautiful, brand new 787…..Kyoko Nakamura, the Cabin Coordinator (in white) made it a perfect flight!
I was met at Narita Int’l Airport by the Abercrombie & Kent representative (from Tonichi Travel) and breezed through customs.
Bonnie & Charlie, along with Pam & Wilbur & Boyd were traveling on Delta & we all went to the Hotel New Otani Garden Tower in Tokyo.
There was a delightful gift from Lynne Tucker (Pro Travel in Los Angeles) awaiting all of us. thank you Lynne!
Rise & shine…it’s 3:00 A.M. & time to get ready for the 4:00 visit to the Tsukuji Fish Market for the fish auction. Over 450 varieties of fish are received there each day but we were there for the important tuna auction!
9:00 A.M. & it’s off to the Imperial Palace’s expansive gardens.
Next stop…..Edo-Tokyo Museum showcasing the politics, culture & lifestyles of the people from the city’s birth to present day Tokyo.
Time for Soba Noodles before visiting the Sagemonoya Netsuke Gallery. Judith & Charlie found some they could not resist.
We had dinner in a private room at Tofuya Ukai at the foot of Tokyo Tower. It’s beautiful beyond imagining.
I can’t figure out how to get many of the photo’s from my iPhone to this iPad Air…..crazy new keyboard too!
