Hotel New Otani

Being a beautiful spring day, I decided to wander around some parts of Tokyo I hadn't really explored before. I got off the train at Yotsuya and walked past Sophia University until I reached the Hotel New Otani, a huge luxury hotel, built to coincide with the Tokyo Olympics back in 1964. It's also famous for having featured in the James Bond film set in Japan, 'You Only Live Twice'. Sadly, with the salary I'm on I'm never likely to be able to afford to stay there, but wandering around the picturesque gardens is free, and you can easily forgot you're in the centre of a big city.
