Going up to the 45 floor was FREE. Yes, it’s free! I love japan already!
The Japanese security guards and the elevator attendants were very courteous and they bowed each time they finish inspecting someone’s bag. And all I could mutter was “xie xie.” Hahahahahaha…. I know, I’m becoming Chinese now.
While in the elevator, I was standing next to the Spanish girl who was also holding the sameas mine—hers was the Spanish version, of course. We smiled when we realized it and we started a conversation that led us up to be buddy for a couple of hours. Her name is Sabel, short for Isabel. Later that day, we went together to to see teenagers in cosplay.
Tokyo skyline from Metropolitan Government Offices was marvelous. We stayed there for 2 hours and a half, waiting for the sky to clear a little bit. It was a bit cloudy when we went up but it showed promise of sun. And when it showed, we took all the photos we wanted to take. At the southern part of the viewing area, a glimpse of Mt Fuji from afar was visible. Though it’s a bit blurry, we were pretty sure it’s Mt. Fuji! 🙂
