Toshogu shrine was erected in 1651, and dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of Tokugawa shogunate. This cultural property in Tokyo was under construction for almost five years, but it's scheduled to finish in December, so you can visit and see its "renewed golden body" in 2014.
If you're living in Tokyo, I highly recommend you visit here as Hatsumode (初詣, or new year worship).

|Can you see the police box?|
This police box in Shinjuku always makes me laugh. Everything's funny when you're drunk, and actually I was drunk at that time, but it always looks like the police box is owned by Louis Vuitton.
This building is called Keio Frente (京王フレンテ), by the way.

There may be nowhere to escape from the heat of summer, at least you are in Kanto region. It's way too hot and humid in Yokohama (横浜), Kanagawa prefecture, as well as in Tokyo. Before visiting Yokohama, I had expected it might be a bit cooler than in Tokyo, but it's too optimistic. The swelter was unbearable, and I was almost desperate. I visited a lot of places in and around Yokohama like an idiot. I'm sure I've walked more than 10 km on that day. I didn't wanna spoil my summer vacation.
