Home >> Japan Travel >> Short Tokyo Getaway (Day 3): Imperial Palace, Pokemon Centre, Tokyo Dome, Tokyo Tower

We started the morning with a visit to the Imperial Palace.  The last time I visited, we only walked around the palace and did not go inside.  This time round, we booked our visit online and joined a guided tour of the palace grounds.

Ah well.. the tour was pretty slow and boring.  After the tour, we went to Pokemon Centre because one of our travel companions was a huge Pokemon fan.

After he was done with his Pokemon shopping, we went manga shopping at Jump Shop at Tokyo Dome.  Being a fan of Prince of Tennis, I found Jump Shop pretty cool!

Tokyo Dome itself was pretty cool, it had an amusement park with roller coaster, vertical drop etc.

It was a day of anime/manga shopping, and we visited Animate main store at Ikebukuro next.

After a whole day of shopping, we ended with a visit to Tokyo Tower.
