My hotel, The Asia Center of Japan, on a quiet street in Embassy district of Akasaka, was upgraded 2 years ago. Single accommodation is only $69, including breakfast buffet. Outside my preferred room, the tree had grown so large, the view of Tokyo Tower had disappeared. But, this view was actually a lot better. It was a lot like being in a tree house. In the warm evenings, cicadas lulled me to sleep. And, when it rained, the tune of raindrops in the branches brought deeper relaxation, reducing jet lag. All I heard at night were the sounds of Nature -- Amazing in such a huge metropolis.
