Observation deck

29 Aug

Yesterday my wife and I went to the top floor of a tall building that had an observation deck from which you could get a bird’s-eye view of the Tokyo area.

A sign there said that 富士山 (Mount Fuji) and 東京タワー (Tokyo Tower) could be seen from that observation deck on clear days.

The sky was fairly clear when we went…but there were some clouds. We could see Mt. Fuji and Tokto Tower…but just barely.

But it was still a nice view.

We went to observation decks in Tokyo before (Click here to see a post with photos from one in Shinjuku).
The difference between those and the observation deck we went to yesterday is that this one was in a Tokyo suburb…so the surrounding buildings weren’t as high, but the tall skyscrapers of downtown Tokyo could be seen in the distance.

After we left there, I saw a line of  「ヤマト運輸」 (Yamato Transport), also called 「クロネコ」 (“Black cat“), trucks going down the highway one behind the other. I took a photo only because I was mildly surprised to see a convoy of package delivery trucks.
