You pay by the hour after our time was up we washed our hands and headed to a Ramen Noodle shop next door where we ordered by selecting what we wanted using a vending machine and handing over tickets to the chefs.
We caught the train to Hamamatsucho following lunch to visit a Buddist Temple and Tokyo Tower - an replica Eiffel Tower with a Japanese twist - painted red and white. The day wasn't so clear so the observation deck wasn't amazing but it still gave us a great sense of what a vast built up area Tokyo is. On a clear day you can see Mt Fuji but unfortunately we missed it today so made up with it by getting delicious ice creams before we headed to Shibuhya.
Shibuhya is the site many people will be familiar with seeing in Tokyo as it is the home to the giant intersections. It also has many great shops and we stumbled across the 100 Yen shop, 3 coin store, another 6 floor electronic shop and an amazing craft/building/everything you could ever need shop called Tokyu Hands - a great number of rolls of washi tape brought by the Team Leaders :)

When choosing somewhere to eat we stumbled across a place which was easy to say no to - A whale Meat restaurant. Not only did they have a million signs outside but they also had a pamphlet explaining their viewpoint on why whaling was good. Pretty sad from our NZ viewpoint.

After finding a great non-whale restaurant we jumped into the train to head home to out hotel for our final night Tokyo - we haven't scratched the surface of this amazing city but we have a job to do in Kyoto and these kids are ready and rearing to go!
