As usual, I took red-eye flight and arrived Tokyo in the early morning.
It’s quite convenient to take bus from Narita Terminal 3 to Ginza area where I generally stay. Depending on the traffic condition, it might take 1.5 hour to 2 hours for bus from Narita to Ginza.
The hospitality market in Tokyo is running at high occupancy so it’s unlikely to get early check-in if you’re not using a special program. I like to use the time between leaving luggage at hotel and lunch to have a haircut in Nihonbashi and then have a sushi lunch close to the barber shop.
Seamon Sushi (with two branches in Nihonbashi and Ginza) is one of my favorite sushi restaurants. Apparently, it’s not the best sushi restaurant in Tokyo but it offers high-quality sushi. Most importantly, you have a chance to walk in.
Then I went back to Ginza to take some hotel pictures for my blog post and spend some time in Ginza Sony Park.
I met my classmate in Shinbashi for dinner at an authentic Izakaya.
I stayed in Millennium Mitsui Garden Hotel Tokyo (ミレニアム三井ガーデンホテル東京) that I will write a hotel review later on.
