The apartment is really nice, it's compact by New Zealand standards but has everything we need. The views are AMAZING, especially at night with all the lights. From here we can see the National Diet building, the leafy Imperial Palace Gardens and moat, the Sky Tree and the Tokyo Tower, and our neighbour on the right is the Buddhist shrine Hie-Jinja.

Despite tiredness levels we've managed to see a few sights. On Sunday we went blossom hunting to Hama-rikyu a park near the Fish Market in Tsukiji. There were still a few trees in flower but Spring has come early to Tokyo this year so we're just catching the tail-end of the blossom. From the park we caught the Waterbus to Asakusa, joined the crowds around the Senso Temple, had some noodles for lunch and then headed back to the apartment.
