After we had gyoza we killed some time at a shopping mall, since there's nothing else to do in Utsonomiya and it was too hot to wander around outside. In Japan you don't have to go to specialty stores to buy musical instruments, you can just get them at random electronics stores.
This statue is from a shrine near my hotel in Saitama. (Also, by the way, very satisfactory, if you ever need to stay somewhere in Saitama.)
On my last full day in Tokyo we went down to Tokyo Bay, which is Tokyo's "Harbourfront". On the way we passed Kyu Shiba Rikyu garden, which is more like the kind of park I'm used to.
We took a ferry across the bay to the touristy part. This is the standard "back at the city" shot. (While we were at Tokyo Bay we shopped in a big mall and then took a monorail back to the city! It's Doug Ford's dream town!)
Back in the city, we stumbled upon Miyazake's clock. Sadly because the whole country was saving energy due to a couple of nuclear power plants being offline, the automaton part of the clock was switched off. But it's still pretty freaking amazing just to look at.
