Day 6 (March 16th) - Downtown Tokyo (West Part) : Shinjuku, Harajuku, Shibuya

This is the last day of our stay in Hilton Tokyo Bay. We had our breakfast, packed our things, and went to the Monorail station. Switched a couple of trains before we made it to Ochanomizu station and walked to the Green Hotel Ochanomizu, Tokyo. Mr. Raymond accidentally left his IBM backpack in a train, reported to the station office, and was told to check again the next day.

Just like most of the hotels in Tokyo, the Green Hotel does not allow check in until 3pm, therefore we left our luggage there and plan to return later for check in. We then walked back to the Ochanomizu station to catch a train to Shinjuku.

Seems like it was a shopping district. It was quite late for a lunch, but we found a nice restaurant serving spaghetti in a very large portion (the waiter warned that it was for two person, anyway).

After lunch, we walked back to the Shinjuku station to catch another train to Harajuku. The Meiji-Jingu Shrine was located just right at the back of Harajuku station, and we arrived there just about the right time (a little bit late, actually, because it was dark enough to cause some difficulties in taking photos inside).

Inside the park was big, tall trees, a couple of gates, and a shrine. There was a place where people hangs their wishes written on wood plates. There was also a shop selling various kinds of charms. There was not much interesting things along the way out, by the way. The gate was already closed for new visitors by the time we exit the park.
