I went to Tokyo too much recently, so hoping this was the last time in awhile, Kenji and I returned once again, this time to get a paper from the US Embassy saying I was able to marry here in Japan. Once we grabbed that, we went around Ueno a bit, spent the night on points at the Hyatt Regency in Shinjuku, and also visited the shrine in Kunitachi where we hope to have our marriage ceremony next year.
