Settling into Tokyo

This is the Akasaka Prince Hotel, in the Akasaka region of downtown Tokyo, and quite near the area Yuko grew up in. We stayed here for 3 nights courtesy of Yuko's sister.

In the lobby of the hotel with Yuko's sister Mayumi on the right. Yuko is sitting between Saeko and her mom, who kindly picked us up from the airport and drove us to the hotel!

Beginning the explore: With New Year coming in a few days, we toured the temple located nearby, and watched all the preparations underway.
