Still rainy season. I don't know when it will be over..
But don't worry. Even it's raining, you still can enjoy Tokyo.
If you have to change your plan because of the rain, I will suggest you the plan B.
Plan B is
1. Tokyo Edo museum
>> It is a very huge museum. You can spend one day there. This museum shows us the history and culture of Japan. They also irregularly have special exhibitions of like calligraphy or kabuk . If you go there, you will see Japan from an interesting angle.
2. Night view.
>> I guess most of people know that night view is beautiful when the sky is clear. However, did you know that rain makes night view even more beautiful? On rainy days the wet strees reflect the streetlights at night so the night town looks more shiny.
My recommendation is the night view from Tokyo metropolitan government building observatory.
They have observatory on the 45th floor of the goverment building. The admission is free.
If your plan is postponed because of the rain, Why don't you go to edo Tokyo museum during the day and go to see the night view in the evening? It will be a wonderful day.
