Hi, thanks for registration. i would appreciate you remove your email address from the previous post, your inbox could be full of spam in the coming two weeks because of that :curious:

about the places you suggested

  • Ghibili Museum : is a little bit far from Tokyo center, and we need reservation for that to go
  • Tokyo Tower : i thought about it for the night, but i thought also the view from Odaiba could be more nice, plus i am trying to make the cost for the trip as low as possible since i know most of you are studetns.
  • Rainbow bridge : is best seen from odaiba, so you can see it! :thumbsup:
  • Rikuyuen garden : I think there should be some mistake in the spell, please check it again. anyway, I think mid December is not the best time to go to gardens in Japan!
