High Above Tokyo...

We're back home...minus one suitcase (AGAIN!), but we just received a call saying that it will be delivered this afternoon. So...not too bad. I've cleaned the apartment, the washing machine is churning away, King is glued to my side, Mrs. TBF is back into work-mode, and...things are pretty much back to normal.

After giving it some thought, I decided that the best way to go about blogging about Japan is to just go through the pictures in order, pick the best ones, and then just write something fitting to go along with each one.

Here we go...

As I said earlier, we stayed at the Park Hyatt Tokyo for the first five nights of our Japan trip. We had seen it in the movie "Lost In Translation", read good reviews about it online, and just decided to go for it. As it turns out, it was a good move because the hotel was GREAT and I would highly recommend it. The service was superb, the restaurants were excellent, we liked the location, our room on the 44th floor was big and comfortable, and we had a great view of Mt. Fuji - perhaps too great of a view. You see...

I DON'T LIKE HEIGHTS!!!

I have to admit that I felt a little weak in the knees and lightheaded at first, but then I got used to it after a little while. Who knows? Maybe the jet lag helped make me numb to it all.

Wow! What a great view! Glad you had such a good time. When I was there back in 2001, I didn't really have the time to enjoy it...

I hope you've now figured out what day it is ;)

I hate heights too but, for some reason, being separated by glass makes it okay for me. Oh, and the open-air, top of the Empire State Building didn't scare me either. Weird.
