Exploring Tokyo on a Sunny Saturday

Today I went for my first proper exploration of Tokyo.  I started by getting the train to Tokyo station and running around the exterior of the Imperial Palace along with many others.  It felt good to be there and doing as some of the running locals do!

After showering I then headed off to Asakusa the old heart of Tokyo:

There were some good views of the Sky Tower from here and near by here too – the replacement for The Tokyo Tower in recent years for communications.

After that I visited Shibuya, site of reputedly the busiest crossing in the world:
