We went to Tokyo again a few days into the new year. This time, we stayed in Shinjuku. We enjoyed eating American style pizza and Mexican food on our first day. On our second day, we went up to the observation deck of the Tokyo Skytree, which was completed in May of 2012. The line to buy tickets was about 35 minutes long. The view from the top was impressive, but unfortunately the sky was a little bit hazy. We couldn’t see Mt. Fuji at first, but as the sun began to set, Mt. Fuji showed itself for a short while.
