Do As Tokyo Does Rainbow Bridge at Night
(Entered Jun. 23, 2010)
  Recent Do As Tokyo Does:

Sometimes you don't have the time or energy to get out of Tokyo on the weekend. What can you do? How about staying at a hotel right here in the city? Just for fun, Kumi and I did a little faux getaway last weekend and stayed overnight in a 4 star hotel in Odaiba. It may sound a bit frivolous, but using a combination of my airmiles and Kumi's credit card points our hotel and dinner were both free. And given that Odaiba is a bit of a pain to get to, it was great not having to take the crowded train back home in the evening. After about 9pm when the stores close and the shoppers leave, you've got the place mostly to yourself.

A quick side story: By chance, we ran into my buddy Scott and his family eating at the same restaurant we went to. Not only that, they were staying overnight in Odaiba as well! Crazy coincidence!
