Greetings from Tokyo! I'm on vacation with the family plus our friends Kellie and Barbi. We're here for ten days in Tokyo and Kyoto; I'm taking the family to Beijing for a few days afterwards. While Michelle and I have each been Tokyo on business before (Michelle was here just two weeks ago!), this is the first time either of us has been here on vacation. It's also the first time the boys have been Asia.
The trip from Seattle to the Grand Hyatt here in Roppongi (a district in Tokyo) was very smooth. Our flight left on time, arrived an hour early, we were right on time for the Narita Express train into town, and we had a smooth check-in. The weather is even sunny and warm.
We had a great dinner (more on that in another post) and are back at the hotel now, fighting to stay awake for a while to get acclimated to the new time zone.
Anyway, stay tuned for more...
