Sunday, 17th September
We have arrived safely in Tokyo, Japan. We arrived on Friday evening, and headed to our traditional Japanese style hotel. On Saturday morning we headed off for our first day of sightseeing, beginning with the Miraikan Science Museum, where we were lucky enough to meet the Asimo robot and see a humanoid robot in action. This was followed by a trip to Harajuku, where we got to see some of the crazy fashion and Japanese popular culture. We then went to Shibuya to see the famous scramble intersection. We all had a go at singing at a karaoke box, the highlight being the whole group singing along to Greased Lightning. This was followed by a lovely dinner at a sushi train restaurant. All the students are having a great time. We are looking forward to sumo on Sunday and Tokyo Disneyland on Monday.
