Au revoir Tahiti, こんにちは Tokyo (Sep. 11-12)

Woke up at 4am Tahiti time to take the 12 hour long flight to Tokyo! It was direct though and was actually pretty comfortable! We left Tahiti on Sept. 11th and since we crossed the international dateline we arrived in Toyko on Sept. 12th. Shortest day ever! ⏰

Our last view of the Polynesian islands. Adeau Tahiti!🏝

After arriving at Narita International Airport, it was clear we should take the Narita Skyaccess and subway to our hotel. Tokyo only has the largest most populated subway system in the world.🚉🚇

At last, we are in our incredibly “spacious” hotel room in Tokyo in the Asakusa neighborhood. This is the only picture necessary as, yes, this is the entire thing. I’m standing by the entrance to the room. The bathroom is the small sliding door to the left. For one of the biggest cities in the world, the Hotel MyStays Asakusa was not too shabby!

Bathroom includes a small shower area (where the floor drain is) next to a bidet, as well as a tiny ofuro (soaking tub). Rest assured, the bidet works perfectly, and is as strong as necessary. 🚽🎉

On the flip side, it’s got a pretty good view of the Tokyo Skytree, and easy access to nice ramen places.

Best of all, international 7-11.

7-11 has a great assortment of manga and adult magazines. Not sure why they’re next to each other but, yay Japan!

The only thing with more choices is flavors of ramen.

We hit up this great real ramen place at the end of the night in Asakusa.

Order up! Heavenly pork ramen. 🍜🍲🍵😋
