Next we headed over to another part of Tokyo to go see another temple and the Tokyo Tower.
I like the juxtaposition of the old world and the new.
Tokyo Tower from underneath
Here are several shots of what we could see from the tower. That tree-y area in the first picture is where the Imperial Palace is.
Here is a park in Ueno. The green in front of the skyscrapers is really a pond full of lotus plants. Most of the blossoms are gone now. It was very beautiful.
More ice cream. We stopped at McDonald's because for the past few days we have been curious about these strangely blue McFlurries that were flavored "Tropical Paradise". What does Tropical Paradise taste like exactly, we wondered. So we got them and ate them and my sister even sang Happy Birthday to me over them. It turns out Tropical Paradise tastes like vanilla soft serve mixed with tropical snow cone flavoring and sweet tarts.
