Putting on the Ritz

So this is what Tokyo looks like from the 51st floor of the Ritz Carlton in Roppongi Midtown, Tokyo.

And a huge thank you to Linda and the Ritz Cartlon for the champagne, the cards and the extra special touches that helped make an already special occasion even more dazzling. It also helps that Midtown is one of our Number 1 places to go in Tokyo!

PS My favourite part was us talking as we were sitting in front of our room window, drinking champagne, as watching the day fade and Tokyo town came alive below us with the twinkling, sparkling lights of the city night. We both said we could have done that for hours. It was like having our very own interactive movie screen.
