Tokyo Sunday.

Sunday was slated as a nic-naking and gallery day.  Unfortunately the antique market that was meant to be at Nogi-jinja on Kotto Dori on the second sunday of the month got bumped to the 4th sunday, so it just didn't happen.  We did stumble upon this Shinto wedding and procession at the shrine there, which was a cultural bonus.

We then headed to the Mori Museum, located on the 52 and 53 floor of the Mori Tower in Roppongi Hills.  As you enter the building you can pass under the wonderful Louise Bourgois giant spider.  We had the super 360 birds eye view of Tokyo to take in between the two exhibitions, the first on Antonio Gaudi and the second an observation of the world from the view of children titled "Go Betweens".

Then it was off to the Hara Museum down Shingawa way.  It proved a bit of a hike to get to and was a tad tired and lacking in contemporary punch. Although it was in a wonderful Bauhaus style home and grounds, it could do with a little more work on show and love and attention in the upkeep. 

But wherever you go there is something new to see in this megacity.
