Sunday In Tokyo

Our morning excursion from our elegant Palace Hotel overlooking the Royal Palace and park, was to Ueno Park, a great museum district. There Jim and I visited the National Museum of Western Art, with many Impressionist works, and the National Museum, which focuses on traditional Japanese art. We had lunch at the second Museum. On the way to and from the hotel, and outside of the National Museun, we saw floats and costumed bearers of the Kanda Matsuri(Shinto) Festival. In the evening we enjoyed a cruise on the Tokyo Bay waterways with spectacular views of Tokyo at night. The cruise also featured a multi-course dinner, and members of our tour group enjoyed our first social evening together. Monday our group will get an early start for a full day of activities. - Dan
