So far, I have been lucky enough to see many views of Tokyo from high up. Either from hotel rooms, radio stations, or restaurants. The view is always so mesmerizing and impressive!
This lobby of the Ritz-Carlton was located on the 45th floor at Mid-town. Stunning views all around, and this beautiful spa-like fountain. The lobby also smelled of chocolate for a relaxed state of mind.
And perfect for these hot days, "Gari Gari Kun" popsicles!!! They are so crunchy and refreshing!
This is the beautiful entry way to a delicious Okinawan restaurant in Mita, called "Adan".
Delicious drinks with hand chipped ice cubes, and Aji sashimi with yuzu vinegar.
A side dish of Okinawan fruit 'goya' with an ume sauce. And below some mixed rice, white miso soup, and sangria!
This table is from a restaurant called Sato. Everything here was made and served by one person. She is amazing!

And then of course, last night I had a traditional Kaiseki Japanese meal on the top floor of a building. So many new foods in this meal I've never had before! And it all tasted as delicious as it looked.
Needless to say, my belly and my eyes have been happy since Day 1. More to come!
