Tokyo- 6 places, 1 day

I decided to extend my stay in Tokyo for 3 additional nights. This past Monday was a holiday in Japan and I was advised not to travel then, so I was in Tokyo till this morning! On Saturday, another one of the Fulbright Fellows and I decided to make the most out of the day, so we pretty much did the grand tour of Tokyo.  What we saw (in order of appearance): The Meiji Shrine, Harajuku District, Shinjuku Distric, Ueno Park, Ginza District, and then finally the Tokyo Tower.

First stop was the Meiji Shrine:
Then we witnessed a wedding! (Apparently this happens every weekend...)
Harajuku was next:
Shinjuku! (Home of the busies train station in the world):

Ueno Park:

And finally Tokyo Tower by night!
