New Years 2013 in Tokyo

Tokyo Tower.
We spent New Years on the 33rd floor of the Prince Park Tower Tokyo Hotel.  Surprisingly enough we were able to get a great table with no reservation.  They tried to seat us at a table with no view but all we had to do was ask and we were moved to an ideal location with a view of Tokyo Tower.
Yes, the martinis were 25$ and the beers were 13$, but it was a great place to ring in the new year.

Rainbow Bridge.

There were no fireworks in the entire city of Tokyo that we could see but the Tower displayed '2013' and a few people in the bar counted down in Japanese. 
What more could we ask for... we were in Tokyo on New Years. 
Happy New Year!!


  1. Showed the girls your blogs of japan and they loved it. Elle of course is more interested in all the pictures, Ruby wanted to see more monkeys. what an amazong trip! i think i have already said that but your pics so far are phenomenal. we let Elle stay up til midnight for the first time on NYE.At midnight dan and elle went outside to bang pots and light firecrackers. I stayed inside to calm the dogs of all the crazy people including my hubby and daughter. it wasnt a $25 martini but it was still a fun night.

  2. When we were in Venice, the first time (2000), we had a martini in Harry's Bar, a famous Hemmingway haunt. We spent $20 for the martinis and $5 for cokes for the kids. Worth every penny so I know how you feel.

    The photos capture the seriousness of Japan, its calmness and yet its ability to WOW. Happy New Year to you all.
