cultured tokyo

A tad more cultured in our excursions today. Started at the Imperial Palace and before our legs and our tourist wills gave way we had taken in a few exhibitions at the Tokyo Metropolitan Photography Gallery in the slightly offbeat Yebisu Garden Place. In between we managed to find the Monocle Cafe on the edge of Ginza near Tokyo station, an indulgence for me given my long time love of their unique approach to journalism; meshing global affairs, business, culture and design.

Recovering in our room now before we lose ourselves in the sounds and smells of narrow streets hiding cuisine secrets for the adventurous.
