[day0] Park Hyatt Tokyo

Park Hyatt Tokyo Since the first flight left Narita Airport in the morning and the distance between Shizuoka which is my home town and the airport is too long to make a direct trip on the day, I decided to stay at the Park Hyatt Tokyo as this has long been a dream of mine. It's much easier and safer to take an airport limousine bus as it takes me to the airport terminal directly and in case I overslept the hotel staff would shake me out of the bed. Incidentally, the airport limousine is not for hotel users only. Maybe you can use it someday. I can certainly recommend using it.

I have been longing to stay at this Park Hyatt Tokyo with someone special for more than 5 years. Surprisingly, one of my sisters got a job there some years ago and its restaurants became much more accessible than before but staying still seemed out of my league. Nevertheless, this is the last chance for the next year and staying there would match the concept of this trip of going to various sorts of places. Finally, I made up my mind to book a normal deluxe type room with a rack rate as there is no discount available for the holiday season.

Club on the Park

The image with which I come up when I talk about Park Hyatt is gym and pool area located on the 46th floor of the building. Unfortunately, I couldn't take photos as there are other visitors but I really enjoyed being there. A spacious high ceiling and a dazzling Tokyo night view, though the pool is not that big (only 20m), if I could exercise here every day I would work out harder than ever. I didn't enter the spa area, but 1km of crawl made my stomach ready for the dinner.

The Last Supper

Park Hyatt TokyoThe Last Supper was held at the New York Grill & Bar which as well as the hotel itself had been brought into the spotlight by an Oscar winning movie, ‘Lost in Translation.’ This time we sit at table near window and I thought any girl would be positively knocked out by this view and atmosphere. We ordered beef steaks for the main and some a la carte menu as I had insider information that their course menu would bloat my stomach. Although I guess there are many better restaurants than there but the rib eye steak I had there is the best for now. I’m looking forward to eating some in Australia and Argentine.

New York BarAfter the restaurant, we had a dessert which had a surprising message from my sisters at the bar. With listening to live music and eating delicious sweets, I felt as if I'm in an inside of a movie. Multilingual conversations could be heard over the tender rhythms of foreign musicians. I was wondering about the country where I was at the time. I guess it was the best place to ponder over the worlds I'm going to for this trip.

A comfortable room

Park Hyatt TokyoThe quality of the room was actually awesome. In fact, I had stayed at the Ritz Carlton Tokyo and this place compared favourably, in fact, I’d even say I prefer the design of the Park Hyatt. A simmering plain light behind a mini bar, a big bath tub in a massive marble setting, a large, simple bed, I feel comfortable with this less decorative design style. As I stretched out in the roomy bathroom, I considered having a room like this myself in the future.

The pool with night view, the delicious meal, the generous bath and bed, I had a fabulous time like a dream and woke up from a real dream at 5:00. It's almost the time for the airport limousine.

智 さん
Felice Anno Nuovo !(明けましておめでとうございます!)

エスフォルタの生山です、マチョのおじさんです。
智さん、私も若いときにダイアモンドバイヤーとして世界中を
飛び回っていました、それも一人なので自分の度胸を試される
場面が多かったお陰で、どこへ行っても物怖じしなくなりました。

やはり若い間に世界を回るのは、お金に換えられない自信ができます。
色々な事が起こると思いますが、全部吸収して頑張ってくださいね!
健康に気をつけて下さい。

まだ3日経過しただけですが、今のところ生きてます(笑)
来年の小野田会ではたっぷり話のネタを持ってきますのでしばらくお待ちください。

>生山さん
あぁ、生山さんは宝石屋さんだったんですね。いつも素敵なゴールドのアクセサリーをされていたのが印象的だったのですが理由がわかりました。実は早くもちょっとしたトラブルが起こったりもしたのですが(詳細は後ほど書きます)それも含めて、様々な出来事を自分の糧にしていきたいなぁと考えております。
一応、ジムで教えてもらったトレーニングもしていますので、帰国後にエスフォルタに顔を出したときに体も大きくなって帰りたいですね。

いよいよだね。タイのおかませんに気をつけてよ。智はどう見ても、かもがタイじゃなくって、鯛をしょって歩いているような感じだからね。やっぱり。あれからもう、成長したと思うけど、やっぱり、心配だな。パスポート忘れたり、飛行機の時間間違えたり、まあ、智の思い出すごく心配なことばかりあるから、、、私も、一人で、バックパックでアメリカと南米にいったんだよ。若かった。は、は、は、まあ、おかまさんと、泥棒に気をつけてね。メルボルンで待ってるよ。ミサ

実は初日から若干やらかしてるのですが、とりあえず僕は元気ですよ。メルボルンではゆっくりとくつろがせてもらおうかと思っているのでよろしくです。そっちはある意味日本だからなぁ。
