We arrived at Haneda International Airport and we went to the Royal Park Hotel, straght away. The hotel was clean and the staff were very nice. The room was a bit small but comfortable and quiet. We slept well.
On the fifth floor of the airport, there are some big structures, a wooden bridge(Nihonnbashi), restaurants and shops.
We found that a few restaurants were open and spotted an Ochazuke place.
Ginza Odenya. Dashi ochazuke.
The dishes were simple (rice with toppings, pickled vegetables, fresh tofu, oden dashi broth) and delicious.
The staff was courteous and friendly.
Later on, we sat down for some green and brown tea ice cream at an Ito-en tea salon.
Haneda is now comprised of 3 terminals following a recent expansion. Terminals are connected by shuttle buses. There is a huge array of shops and restaurants across all terminals.
We were already having a good time and had yet to leave the airport(^-^)
I am a little relieved. My Brother’s family and one of my friend could leave Sendai.
They are in Tokyo now.
But many people in North-Eastern Japan are still staying in the shelters. More than 5000 people are dead, about 10000 people are missing. Now they are facing a Nuclear disaster…
I am still worried about Japan.
My family member and my friend are in Miyagi (Natori-city and Sendai-city).
I am very worried about them.
The situation in North-Eastern Japan is very desperate with many people have no access to food or water and the missing are reported to be over 10,000 people.
