Good morning from Tokyo!
Itís our last day here in Japan and we are excited to head home to see the fuzzerkin. (I told Mike I was trying to figure out a plan for when we got
home and then I said, "Wait, I think my plan is spoken for - take Chloe outside.")
We were happily reunited with the two bags we shipped from Kyoto to Tokyo when we got to our hotel. (they have a nice service here for hotel-to-hotel
shipping so you don't have to drag everything through the train station. ) We had a wonderful evening at the Park Hyatt and really enjoyed the New York
Bar & Grill on the 52nd floor. Mike plans to rent "Lost in Translation" again for kicks. (part of the movie was filmed in that bar)
Itís a quarter to 9 am on Tuesday here. Our bus for the airport leaves the hotel at 12:05 pm. Itís a 2-hour ride, and probably about 3 hrs in the airport,
but we wanted to be sure we got there with plenty of time since there really isn't a second flight to catch if you miss your flight. We saved our United club
passes that came with the credit card for the wait. :>) We will land at 1:15 pm Denver - still on Tuesday! It'll be nice to get the day back. I am off
from work on Wed, returning Thurs.
Our hotel room in the Park Hyatt:
The lighting design in the hallway was stunning.
Our last dinner in Japan! View from our table in the New York Grill on the 52nd floor of the hotel:
After dinner, we switched to the other side of the room, by the bar and the band,
