Our last day in Tokyo was interesting, it started early in the morning, we (Aw no mina san) left KitaUrawa center at 8 30 am , and we arrived at our first destination in the schedule which was the Diet Building which is a building where sessions of both the house of Representatives and the house of Councilors meet, The sessions of the house of Representatives take place in the left wing while the sessions of the house of Councilors take place in the right wing, well it’s not as interesting as the places we went before , but still something that is good to know about Japan.
After that we went for lunch, the program took us to a restaurant in Shibuya that serves vegetarian food, I am sorry to say that but I didn’t like the food at all and most of the participants didn’t like it either, the majority of us are non vegetarian and also we couldn’t see the point of taking us to such restaurant (it’s not even Japanese food), but anyway we were all polite when they asked us about our opinion in the food, we should have been honest.

Our vegetarian meal ^^
After our pure vegetarian meal ,We arrived at Meji-Jinga Shinto shrine at 1:45 pm which is also located at Shibuya , Meji-Jinga shrine is dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife, it is visited by many people, especially on new year when people pay their first visits (called “Hatsumoude”).The number of the first visitors to the shrine is the largest in Japan, the view was amazing and also I liked a tree there , I spent most of the time walking near it ( I have no idea why I fell in love with it).
This is the tree I fell in love with ^^
