Thanks for posting the trip report and video. They are very helpful. I definitely have to improve how to use my credit card points. Will be following your vlog.

    Thanks so much for your very detailed review of what you guys did at Disneyland/Sea...you guys seem to have gotten so so so much done. Hopefully our trip is as successful as yours seems to have been.

    We were able to get a lot more done each day than I thought we would. It was nice because it meant our second two days were more relaxing

    Next we went to Asakusa. The train ride was kind of long with lots of stops but we definitely have a handle on the trains now. The tourist center was a good area to see the skyline up high. This main street was SO busy and we didn’t like that at all. Way too many people and everyone is trying to get you to buy things. We did end up engraving our own chopsticks which look pretty cool. The Senso-ji temple had more guidance on what to do compared to Meiji-Jingu. We ate at McDonald’s in Asakusa and had no trouble communicating with staff. I was told before the trip you couldn’t order things a specific way but I got my burger with only cheese and had no issues. We ate upstairs in mcdonalds which was cool.
    Hello, Haley

    DH and I watched your youtube DAY 2 video tonight. Where abouts is the tourist center for seeing the skyline up high? Haven't seen anything about this. I looked into Skytree but it is sure pricey - so I doubt we will do that. Was there a cost for the tourist center?
    Thanks Wendy

    It’s a free building right across the street from the main entrance into the Asakusa street where all of the shops and stalls are at. We chose it because the skytree costs money and we just wanted a quick view of the city.

    Thanks, Haley. Photo helps a lot.

    I've was considering the Tokyo Government buildings. But, haven't really figured out a direct /easy way to get to them from the Meiji Shrine. Love the view you got from the Visitor center.

    Was considering Skytree after seeing the view Prince Charming Dev got on his recent visit - but it's too pricey for me.

    Did you go to the Imperial Palace at all?

    I thought the view was great from the tourist center and it was free.

    No we didn’t go to the imperial palace at all

    Thanks. DH is already saying we're going back and we haven't even gone once yet. LOL.

    Just looking at the complicated Subway/Train map - how did you get from Asakusa to Akihabara? Dh wants to go to Akihabara and I would like to see Senso-ji. Trying to make it work.

    We didn’t go directly from Asakusa. We went to the edo Tokyo museum first. We never felt like the trains were an issue. We absolutely loved taking them around. We used google maps exclusively and it was always very helpful

    Download a Tokyo Rail Map app that has a route finder. I like the one from Urban-Map

    $8329.96 - 2 ANA business class seats to Tokyo (chase points 90k each-bought through Virgin Atlantic)
    I have been searching all over trying to figure out how to do this! How did you use the chase points through VA to get ANA seats?
