C’est Finis

We have finished work. Our time as English teachers in Japan is over.

We had our final day of work on Friday, finished packing and cleaning on Saturday, and now find ourselves in the Tobu Levant Hotel in the Kinshicho district of Tokyo.

If that hotel name sounds familiar, it’s because we stayed here during the Christmas break in 2006, and again during Christmas 2007. It’s a nice hotel, and we can actually see Tokyo Tower from our room.

This is the first real day of our new vacation, so we may do nothing, or we may make our way to Akihabara briefly.

We haven’t decided yet.

In any case, it’s raining, so the city is covered in a fine mist different from it’s usual haze. Here are a few wide shots from our window.
