    I visited Tokyo briefly in 1990, so that's 25 years ago although it seems more recent.

    That was in January so it was cold and clear. I found it a fascinating city and culture, and the few Japanese phrases I learnt I can still remember.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Very enjoyable set of images Bill. I've never been to Japan and not sure if I'll ever make it, but this gives me a bit of a feel for Tokyo.

    Just a few shots of around the Royal Palace - it was such a lousy day weather-wise that I had to give up taking shots
