Uwe at Japan (1) - very first impressions of 東京

My very first time being at Tokyo - 2009-08-15. Arrived on a Saturday morning at Narita international airport at 8 o'clock.

Sho-san picked me up by car and I received my first impressions about Tokyo out of the interior of a Nissan car.

Tokyo harbour bridge.
Marginally bigger than Lauffen Neckar bridge.

Yokoso means: Welcome!

Welcome to 東京 / the city of Tokyo (approx. 8,7 million people) and the Greater Tokyo Area, the world's most populous metropolitan area with a population of more than 35 million people and therefore simultaneously the world's largest metropotitan economy.

Fortunately most of the street signs are drafted in two languages: Japanese characters AND a characters I was able to read...
We had to drive to 渋谷 / Shibuya direction!

Hey, the Tokyoite have something similiar to the Parisian Eiffel Tower, but 8,6 m higher: the Tokyo Tower! Between all the skyscrapers it doesn't look that high...
