GRAND PALACE HOTEL - Site of the 2002 WCMJ

The Grand Palace hotel is in Chiyoda-ku, near Kudanshita Station. Very nice hotel. This was the first time I'd ever been there, much less stayed there. Here's a floral display in the lobby.
Nighttime view out my window, looking west towards Shinjuku (I think).
The daytime view out my window. Wouldn't you know it, the sun finally came out on my last day in Tokyo. (Hmm, now that I think of it, I wouldn't know if the sun was out on Thursday or Friday, since I was indoors playing mah-jongg all day!)
A closer look at the grounds behind the hotel. I think I saw this place again, on TV, some months later. Seems maybe some news event had happened there...? [shrug]

The WCMJ was a multi-faceted event! Click on the links to read the chapters.
