After a delicious dinner at Jung Sik Dang, Ceddy and I headed to North Seoul Tower.  The observation deck has awesome views of the city.

We rode on the cable car, which took us up Namsan Mountain.

One afternoon, Ceddy and I met up during his lunch. Before getting conveyor belt sushi, we met at the Gwanghwamun metro stop and walked along the Cheonggye Plaza.

Though it was windy, the Cheonggyecheon stream was peaceful.

After crossing the stepping stones to the other side of the stream, we headed to lunch.

Rainbow Bridge

Rainbow Bridge. Tokyo, Japan.

Tokyo’s Rainbow Bridge connects Shibaura Pier to Odaiba waterfront development, which is across Tokyo Bay. The pier was lined with restaurants where groups of friends, couples, and a few families could grab dinner and/or drinks after work.

Shibaura Pier is one of the most romantic spots in the city. Couples sat on the boardwalk by the beach and watched the boats move across the bay under Rainbow Bridge.

Originally, Ceddy and I wanted to take one of the water taxis to see the views from the bay. While we were too late to catch one, we got drinks and enjoyed the views from the boardwalk. I even convinced him to take some photos.

I just stood by the railing (knowing my luck, I would’ve fallen and broken other teeth).

Not classy, just clumsy. Tokyo, Japan.

Rainbow Bridge should be on everyone’s list of sights to see in Tokyo (especially if you’re feeling amorous).
