We had 2 missions to accomplish during our short layover in Tokyo:
1. Japanese Curry
Once we freshened up, we went out for a walk around the area.
We called it a night because we had an early morning start. We planned to head over to Shinjuku Gyoen Park to check out the cherry blossoms.
What a beautiful day for a walk! The park was a relatively slow 10 minute walk away from the hotel and we got in after paying the Y200 fee. There was decent crowds all over the park despite the fact that it was very early in the Sakura season and the blossoms were not in full bloom.
Once we were done with the park, we walked back to Times Square to check out the shops.
We walked around the Shinjuku station area to kill time. My bonus mission to find a liquor store for Japanese whiskey was an utter failure but it just gives me another reason to come back – I will have you Hibiki 17 and I will stop at nothing to find you. 12pm rolled around and we checked out of the hotel.
We decided to take the Narita Express to get to the airport. After paying at the kiosk, we headed down to the platform to catch our train.
