Day 4 in Tokyo (Part 1)

I decided to be a little adventurous by waking up a little earlier than usual, so I can take a stroll to the palace. It was a good exercise, took me about 20 mins to get there. I noticed there was another hotel call Palace Hotel Tokyo approximately 10 mins walk from the Palace. As I stood outside the Palace wall, wondering how is it like to be part of the Imperial family. The Imperial House of Japan also knowns as the Yamato dynasty, comprises members of the royal household, each holding official appointment. Its probably the oldest continuous hereditary monarchy in the world. 

The next best place would be the Palace Hotel Tokyo where the concierge recommended Saraberth, so like any dutiful royality, I said ok. I had the best egg benedict with french toast ever! 

Next stop was the Asakusa district. Its one of the popular places to visit in Japan, and the Buddhist temple here is dedicated to the bodhisattva Kannon. This neighborhood is famous for its annual Brazilian style carnival. There is a significant Brazilian presence in the local community and the Association of Samba Schools of Asakusa is based there. Imagine, a Brazilian carnival in Asakusa!

The Steak Restaurant we had lunch at won a gold medal for its meat, not surprising considering its Japanese beef. Very tasty, I love it actually!
