Do you know what the capital of Japan is?
Tokyo is a huge, amazing city. It's a mix of old and new; of traditional and ultra-modern. The streets are full of people -- everyone is going somewhere, day and night. On our first full day, we had a bus tour; we visited the National Diet (not food -- it's the Parliament House!) and had some time in the Asakusa neighborhood. I had already been out to visit the world-famous Tsukiji Fish Market (more on that later) before dawn! It's still dark, but the hustle and bustle is like rush hour. I've also been out to see neon Tokyo by night. The lights are so bright, it feels like daylight! Here are a few pictures of my first days:
