ww3 and i flew out of tokyo at about 7pm, so we had some time to look around on our last day before we went.  my guidebook suggested a nice scenic walk around the nishi-nippori area, where we wanted to do some final shopping anyway, so we followed its advice and wandered past a delightful mix of things tucked away in little corners that felt just right for a final tour. 

one of the things that caught my eye and definitely wasn't included on the official tour was a statue of a tanuki outside someone's house.  it reminded me of our favorite japanese restaurant in auckland, tanuki's cave.
