Places to see..
I was able to squeeze a little bit of sight seeing before I headed back, I went to Tokyo Tower and Imperial Palace both of which were closer to my hotel.
Built in 1958, Tokyo Tower is a replica of the famous Eiffel Tower of Paris. At 333 meters, it is 13 meters taller than Eiffel and also serves as TV broadcasting station. Even though, this tower is taller, it did not have the huge greenery like the Paris Tower which gives it a majestic look.
Tokyo Tower, very close
Tried to put myself in the frame

From a distance.. Tokyo Tower from Imperial Palace Grounds
Imperial Palace is right in the heart of Tokyo city, surrounded by lush green park. Original palace built in 1888 was destroyed during second world war and was rebuilt to original specification later. Imperial Palace East Gardens are open to the public most of the year and that's where we went.
