This is an old keep on the grounds of the Tokyo Imperial Palace.

    Tokyo is the capital and largest city of Japan.  The city is probably the largest metropolitan area that I have ever been to.  The skyscrapers and high rise buildings seem to go on forever, but they also have old shrines and buildings too from many generations past.  The sushi at the Tokyo Fish Market is just amazing.  Getting around Tokyo, one can take the metro or other trains, but it does get crowded during rush hour.
