November 3 - 13, 2002
I took over 1000 pictures! It will take me a while to sort them all out. Here a small sample. Eri-san, myself, Chie-san and Doi-san in Asakusa, in front of the Asahi Super Dry Hall -- designed by Phillipe Starck. We took the construction elevator to touch the flame... a pretty nice looking construction crew!
Information overload in Shinjuku. Tsukiji fish market. I got up at 5:30 am and I think I still missed most of the action. 80% of all fish eaten in Tokyo is sold here.
Torii gate near Hakone. Great Buddha in Kamakura. For 20 ¥ you can go inside. Must be the cheapest admission in all of Japan!
Kyoto has more gorgeous temples and gardens than you can count. Himeiji castle near Osaka. It is still original. You can climb all the way to the top.
A gate in Nikko -- a quick day trip from Tokyo. Everything is very easily reachable by train. Kirin Plaza, Osaka (KPO). Designed by Shin Takamatsu. Of course I had a Kirin there. Located in Dotombori, Osaka's amusement district.
