Tokyo Metropolis

Yoking past and future, Tokyo dazzles with its traditional culture and passion for everything new.

-- Lonely Planet

Thankfully, when my sister-in-law learned of our trip Singapore -- with a change of planes in Tokyo -- she told us we were crazy not to plan a layover of a couple of days for perhaps our only chance to visit Tokyo. To top it off, we found a deal for lodging at the Tokyo Hilton, where the movie "Lost in Translation" was filmed, maybe in the very same room!
