Bags packed for checkout. We stayed at 3+ star hotels, which meant they had TV's and separate bath / shower rooms. That's my trusty Deadpool backpack bought via Amiami a while back. Lots of pockets so came in handy.

Made our way from Osaka Station to Shin-Osaka station in order to catch our Shinkansen train to Tokyo. Grabbed some brunch while we waited.

Osaka to Tokyo took around 90min. Train reached 294kph according to an iOS speed measuring app I used.

We were kinda lucky ish with weather. This was the one day it rained on the whole 14 day trip.

In Asakusa.

Taiyaki and yes it was crunchy and super tasty.

Those two on the right... when fashion and poor weather collide.

In the lift on the way up Skytree.

Sadly the view was impacted a little by the weather.

As sad as it may sound. This interactive display was the highlight of the Skytree visit. No really you could press on any part and it would make this zoomed in bubble and let you toggle to night views for that spot also. Was real impressed and took videos of the process even.

That guy sure gets around.

My favourite beer brand so this caught my attention. Wonder if the liquid is pink?

Obligatory stand on the glass and let your vertigo take you for a ride.

Neat cluster of shops and restaurants down stairs from Skytree.

Sucker for Takoyaki.

There is a proper supermarket area down stairs and I spotted a fish store carrying caviar / roe. More a shot for the family back home who would find it of interest and an example of how you can indeed find the odd food ingredient, if you know where to look.
