I went to Tokyo last November with my friend.  We flew to Tokyo with Japan Airline.  We stayed for 12 days in the Listel Shinjuku.  The hotel was quite small but  not very expensive.  During the day we walked around the city.  We saw almost all the famous places, such as the Imperial Palace, Sensoji Temple and we went for a walk in Shinjuku Gyoen.  We took a lot of photos.  At night, we went to restaurants and we had tempura and yakitori.  We bought some gifts for our friends and family.  We had a great time, Tokyo is a modern city and at the same time full of history.  The food was delicious. We didn´t have any serious problems.
