Today was officially the end of the tour. Several of the group had to leave for the airport early in the morning but my flight wasn’t until 8:10pm so I didn’t have to start for the airport until about 2:00pm.
I took off by myself with the first stop being the Tokyo Skytree which is officially the tallest tower in the world. It was a very clear day & you could even make out snow-capped Mount Fuji in the distance. It’s 106 km away so quite remarkable that you could see that far.
I wanted to catch the hop-on hop-off bus but just missed one & the next one didn’t come along for 1½ hours so too late for me. I slowly made my way back to the hotel, stopping off at the Tokyo Dome which had lots of baseball memorabilia (both American & Japanese)scattered around.
I picked up my bags from the hotel the walked to the Tokyo Dome Hotel to catch the airport bus which took about 1½ hours to get to Narita airport. No dramas on the flight home – not much sleep because we arrived at Cairns at 4:15am (Cairns time) which was 3:15am Tokyo time.
