Our Japan Holiday part 1

We arrived in a Winter Wonderland!!
It was so cold but with the pleasure of seeing snow, the coldness was all forgotten.. 
We arrived into Narita Airport 8pm and caught a bus to our hotel.

Very dodgy photo out the window of our hotel at about 10pm

The next morning, we braved the metro train network and headed into town.
First Stop:  Zojoji Temple

One of the entrances into the temple area

A Jizo Statue - one of many in the area

Beautiful statue near the temple

The snow was the main attraction for the children today

The tokyo tower behind two temples
The sky was beautiful and clear bit it was chilly!!

Next stop: Tokyo Tower

And the view over Tokyo from of the windows.

First impressions of Japan..WOW!! We were not really prepared for the sheer volume of people. Quite often we would find ourselves just stopping and watching the crowd of people zoom by us. 
Everyone was so helpful too, anytime we reached for a map, someone was on hand to help. 
After our day of sightseeing we headed back to the hotel, a dinner of sushi from the supermarket and we were in bed. All ready for our big day out tomorrow.
