Tokyo Holiday - Day 7

Today is my last day in Tokyo and this will be my last short daily postings from here. 
My departure flight is 11:30pm but we arrived Haneda Airport 
early as we decided not to get caught in their after office rush. 
There is over 25 million people in Tokyo alone!


Haneda Airport is nice and lively.
It reminds me of Changi Airport.



Yesterday we visited few places
and that includes their famous
park called Rikugien.
So peaceful and relaxing place.



Today we went to the Akasaka Imperial
Palace near the hotel we stayed.



Lastly, we headed on to the Tokyo National
Museum before going to Ginza for an expensive farewell lunch for ourselves.

I will continue to finish my 3 more marriage and divorce postings before
start on my proper Tokyo trips.

  6. Er.. I think it is not too bad, the rush hour ends around 7-7.30pm. Last time I took the train to Haneda from Shinjuku (with transit) at 8pm, no crowds anymore.

  8. Hello TM.. believe you would be a correct person where i can ask this..

    Would it be worth to spend RM4900 on a 4D3N tour to Tokyo (flight + hotel + one day pass to Disneyland) ? Planning last min trip for kids.. and tour not available for ( 2 weeks before New Year and 2 weeks within CNY.. sigh)

    Regards

    1. If you ask for my opinion, I would definitely not join the Japan tour even though it is very convenient without fuss. The price you mentioned is definitely not worth it and you might come back to complain like others about the rush and hurried tour being conducted. I have taken tours to China and South Korea with a long list of complaints before decided to hire personal guide & drivers in Bali, Angkor Wat, Phuket & Xian. So much cheaper and made me a happy boy!

      Honestly, Tokyo is too huge and not easy to take the subway lines which is a crazy place underground. However, you can get used to it with patience as we have done that many times in Japan. For 6 nights in Tokyo, I think we spent way below RM10K for everything. You could see the number of places we covered which may not be the same as the normal tour itinerary but we chose it to suit our interests. As for the tour's 3 nights, I am guessing it is one full day at Disneyland and include Sensoji Temple, Tokyo City View from a deck, Gardens Tour, Imperial Palace and quick shopping. If you go in a family, you can save more if the kids sleep inside same family sized room with extra beds. You can write to my email for some lengthy dialogue, if you wish.

    2. I enjoy reading your comment and I strongly agree with all you mentioned above. I also experienced both organised tour operator and travel independently and I personally think, travel independently is way better than the first one. If RM4,900 per pax, I don't think it's really worth cause I went July this year, my family and I spent roughly RM5k each for 8 days trip - including Disneyland, Mount Fuji and Yokohama.

  15. I just watched one programme in SG that introduced us to the cultures of Japan, it says the people in Japan are all very systematic, polite, clean, well behave and environmental friendly, since a kid, they learned how to love the environment

  24. I haven't been to Haneda so far and it's my first time to Narita Airport July this year. Previously, I flew into Kansai Airport instead. Never imagine Haneda Airport is so beautiful cause all this while, I thought it's just normal and budget airport :P

  31. Love going to Tokyo via Haneda cause I can catch a cab to the hotels in town instead of the long limo ride from Narita.
