The first couple days we spent in Tokyo. After checking into our hotel, those were our rooms not washing machines, we headed out to see the city. Its really an amazing city huge and sprawling with so much activity. We tracked down an awesome art gallery, you can see the front of it in the above picture. While in Tokyo we went to Harijuko and walked around this giant temple grounds with a huge wooded park area. Right in the middle of a big city there's a nice peaceful park. From Tokyo we took a bus to Kitakata in the Fukishima prefecture where Nick lives and teaches.
