IMG_3681.JPG - Vi blev så trötta att vi tog en Taxi till hotellet, vi hade ju varit i farten sen 04.00..... alla Taxi har GPS, det behövs sannerligen för det finns inga trafionella gatunamn i Tokyo! se här:   Main Streets & Arteries -- One difficulty in finding your way around Tokyo is that hardly any streets are named. Think about what that means -- some 12 million people living in a huge metropolis of nameless streets. Granted, major thoroughfares and some well-known streets in areas like Ginza and Shinjuku received names after World War II at the insistence of American occupation forces, and a few more have been labeled or given nicknames only the locals know. But for the most part, Tokyo's address system is based on a complicated number scheme that must make the postal worker's job here a nightmare. To make matters worse, most streets in Tokyo zigzag -- an arrangement apparently left over from the past to confuse potential attacking enemies. Today they confuse Tokyoites and visitors alike.
