Palette Town

Here we are at Tokyo Port on our way back to a new Metro line at the end of an eventful day in Palette Town. Behind us is another ferris wheel. Joe and I had already ridden a ferris wheel at Tokyo Dome City, so we opted not to ride the one at Palette Town. Although the lights on the ferris wheel changed and lit up the night sky beautifully!

Toyota has a "test drive" facility at Palette Town. There are 2 tracks. On one, you do not need a driver's license, because the cars pretty much operate themselves. However, on the other, you can test drive new Toyota models on an indoor/outdoor track. The steering wheel is on the right side of the car, so I would not venture a trip on this track, since it would be very strange to me to drive on the opposite side of the car. Plus, I could probably not do more than 20 MPH, so that would be kind of boring for my lead foot.

One of the entrances to Palette Town. Notice the needle in the background. I have no idea what this is.

Two very cool buildings on the way to Palette town.
