Our trip today seemed more like ordered mayhem than a managed sightseeing trip.  Apparently Tokyo loves rules and the application of those rules meant that we could not partake in seeing the  bridges above on the edge of the Imperial Palace.  The time for arrival at the drop off point in Ginza is strictly regulated and we were nearly 5 minutes late.  The initial consequence was therefore insufficient time to walk from coach to the above viewpoint and return on the only stop between the hotel and Ginza.

In Ginza we were taken to the Kabuki-za theatre and shown the basement of market stalls and then taken upstairs to a little garden and a display in remembrance of a famous actor.

We return to the centre of Ginza where the Wako department store is now very obviously the oldest buildings visible in any direction.

In Ginza 6 we find a Starbucks for some coffee and something to eat.  The Starbucks seems to be inside a bookshop, yet on careful observation there is another branch of Starbucks within this branch of Starbucks!  Very strange.  And busy with all seats occupied, we grab two stools at the counter.

Regaining the coaches is similarly time limited but then I must admit to snoozing most of the way back to the hotel.  Time to repack our cases as tomorrow we board our cruise ship and sail away.

Before we do our dinner tonight is a Chinese meal, again in our hotel.  This is not as good as the meal the previous evening.  The cases are outside the room ready for collection.  Let us hope for better sleep or at least more of it.
