11:00 a.m. – We’re done with the safety video and on our way! You ride in traffic along with cars and get up to 40-45 mph, so it’s a little intimidating, but we settle in pretty quickly once we start going. We start out driving over Rainbow Bridge, which has an upper deck and lower deck. We’re on the lower deck and can see two different Ferris wheels and have an amazing view of the water. When we drive, we’re in a single file line and when we come to a traffic light, we move into rows of two, so it’s nice to be able to talk to K. while we’re stopped. Our guide takes photos of us at most stops since we’re not allowed to use phones. Next, we drive by Tokyo Tower (a communication tower whose shape is inspired by the Eiffel tower but it’s painted red and white), go through Roppongi, through the Shibuya crossing, and then back over the bridge. I feel like we got to see a lot of things we wouldn’t have otherwise and it’s fun to see areas without a lot of tourist attractions as well. Overall, we drive around 30 miles.
