Tokyo 9 - Tokyo Dome City
A night at a spa
Tokyo Dome is basically the local baseball team (the Giants) stadium:
However, it is also used for other sports and events such as concerts. It is located inside a complex called Tokyo Dome City, which has other attractions...restaurants and shops, as well as a building called "Laqua":
There's also an amusement park with an impressive roller coaster:
Not as high as the Steel dragon, but still 262 feet! And the vertical angle is very steep, 80 degrees! From the bottom, it is really impressive...
So what is "Laqua"? Well, there are of course lots of shops in that building, but the main attraction is an onsen ! A real one, since they have the water come from I don't remember how deep, and the great thing is that it is possible to stay overnight! I didn't need persuading to do so, especially after four nights at a capsule hotel...It is forbidden to take pictures inside, so the best I can do is to redirect you to the appropriate page from the official website. You can click the pictures, it lacks resolution but it should give you an idea of what it is like. Seriously, it is so awesome! Baths (one is outdoor), saunas, steam baths, relaxation, but really the best thing is to be able to take a bath anytime during the night...
The next morning, back to reality...
