OH LA LA!!! To my disappointment, I could not book in advance the ticket of Ghibli Museum, one of my destination in Tokyo orz. I have not choice to cut off and reschedule. It racks my brain to think about it. I believe it is a must visit Tokyo Imperial Palace, where Emperor live. The palace is so vast and should be peaceful (if Chinese visitors not coming LOL). Even though there are not many Cherry Blossom species, the scene is elegant. We spend one lovely afternoon there. And it is nice to view sunset at House of Councillors, The National Diet of Japan.
