Tokyo Trip: Day 6 - Ginza, Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden and Departure

Our flight was at 11:50pm so we still had time to go around Tokyo. The weather was really good. We went back to Ginza for Burberry and I spent a bomb there.

On our last day, we went back to Ginza with a mission

Mission accomplished! (and 130K yen poorer :P)

Ginza main street. On weekends, cars are not allowed into this road as barriers will be set up. There will be chairs and canopies set up right in the middle of the road for shoppers.

Marina met up with us in Ginza. We wanted to have Kobe beef so she took us for a nice lunch in Kawamura.

The chef in action right in front of my eyes

We ordered Kobe and Tajima Beef Hamburg Steak Lunch Course which came with soup of the day, kobe and tajima beef hamburg steak (180g) with vegetables, season salad, bread or rice, dessert and coffee. The price - JPY2,625.

The food

After lunch, we walked around Ginza for a bit. Marina bought us this very yummy Belgian Waffle. I love it. The waffle was really crispy and the cream will just melt in your mouth. Oooh I miss that!

Manneken Belgian Waffle. Look at that crazy long queue but it's worth it!

We head back to Shinjuku for the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. The garden was originally created for the Royal Family in 1906. It is currently a national park, harmonizing both European and Japanese styles. Entry fee - JPY200.

I love the colour

The garden closed at 4pm. So we headed back to our hotel to collect and repack our luggage. Boy, that was a serious long walk from the garden back to our hotel. LOL!

Our luggages and we had to leave behind that huge Burberry shopping bag with Marina

We took the subway to Shinjuku station and over there, Marina helped us to buy the Airport Limousine Bus ticket to Haneda Airport. We hung out for a bit at a random bar and restaurant nearby until it's time to say goodbye. Sniff! Sniff!

Bye Marina! Bye Tokyo!

Well, I miss Tokyo. I think Japan is a country I don't mind visiting again and again. I will definitely check out the other parts of Japan in future.
