Our View

On our last stay in Tokyo we were at the lovely Tobu Hotel Levant, East of Tokyo central in Kinshichou. We were on the 18th floor, if memory serves correctly. For the pictures of that view, see Amanda’s photoblog (check “First Day in Tokyo”).

This time we are at the much less grand (the word is probably cozy) Hotel Amista, West of Tokyo Central in Asagaya. We are on the fourth floor.

You can click on any of the following pictures for larger images.

Yesterday,this was our first view looking southwest. First View from Amista

Then, after the rain, this was the view in the same direction. After the Rain 1

Here’s a close-up on the middle of that scene. After the Rain 2

Better, but still not quite what I was hoping for…

After the rain we went out and bought some supper, then came back to the hotel (day one was largely just resting from the work week). We ate, watched some interesting Japanese gameshows, then went to bed.

This morning I woke up and looked out the window to this view. The Famous Mountain 1

That’s right, from our fourth floor window we can see Mt. Fuji. The Famous Mountain 2

Pretty cool, huh?

  1. That’s a pretty good view, right there.

    There’s one thing missing though. Giant robots. Giant robots. Dooouuushhhh!

  2. Robots dancing! Robots dancing!


  3. Hello Jonathan! 🙂

    I’m looking at a few hotels for my stay in Japan in October, and was looking up Tobu Levant when I found your site. Would like to ask – is there complimentary internet access in the hotel’s rooms? If it is not complimentary, how much does it cost?

  4. Hey, Paul!

    At the Tobu Levant, the internet was, I believe, 500 yen as a flat rate for the modem rental. There was no wireless in the rooms.

    I seem to believe that was all we paid, but this was back in December, so my memory may not be perfect.

    Hope that helps.

  5. definitely helped, thanks so much! 🙂

  6. Nice view of the Mt. Fuji.

    But isn’t Kinshichou east of Tokyo? How can it be west of Tokyo Central? 😛

    (Googled on Kinshichou to find some pages and found your strange description…)

  7. Hey, you’re right. Hmm, I’ll have to fix that.
