Day 1: Tokyo at First Glance

If you take the Tokyo Morning Tour, you will find yourself in the tallest self-supporting tower in the world, The Tokyo Tower. It stands 1092.52 feet tipping the Eiffel Tower by 43 feet. Up in Tokyo Tower, you can see everything Tokyo has to offer at first glance. You can do your photo ops at the Imperial Palace Plaza through Ueno and Akihabara to Asakusa Kannon Temple. You can do more shopping at Nakamise and Ginza and find an impressive pearl cultivation showroom at Tasaki Pearl Gallery.

You can do all that in the morning because after lunch, you could check out the famous Kabuki at Tokyo Kabuki-za. Kabuki is a traditional form of Japanese Theater that showcases an amazing array of costumes, makeup, song and dance. An Engligh language closed-circuit audio service is available for your convenience.

Sumo, Japan’s oldest sport dates back 1500 years. If you’re one who prefers something a little more hands-on and primeval you might want to check this out. These heavy weight guys eat around 20,000 calories every day, that’s about 10 times the adult daily requirement!
When the sun sets, you can go on the Tokyo Night Tour and Japanese Dinner. Sanju Sangendo is the right place to be to get the real deal on Japanese food. The night tour goes across Rainbow Bridge to Aqua City and then through Akasaka and Ginza. To cap the night with a breathtaking view and experience, the night tour ends in Roppongi Hills giving you a view of Tokyo at night.

Day 2: Bullet Train and Mt. Fuji

When one thinks of Japan, Mt. Fuji is one of the most frequent things that come to mind. The Mt. Fuji and Hakone Day Tour takes you from Tokyo via countryside and then up to Mt. Fuji 5th Station. Mt. Fuji stands 12,388 feet and when you reach there, you’d soon find out why it is one of the most iconic images that Japan has of its country. After lunch you can take a cruise on Lake Ashi, and then take a cable car ride in Mt. Komagatake, then to Odawara and then finally board the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) for your trip back to Tokyo.

Day 3: On to Nikko and Kamakura’s Buddha

The Toshogu Shrine and Mausoleum can be found at the entrance of the Nikko National Park. Japanese religious beliefs can be rooted here as both Shinto and Buddhist worship was practiced in the vast mountains and lakes, waterfalls and hot springs. The tour takes you to Irohazaka mountain road. Located at the foot of Mt. Nantai is Lake Chuzenji.

You can also spend the day doing the Kamakura Walking Tour. The Kotokuin Temple houses the Great Buddha towering at 37.4 feet high. The walking tour shows you the Hase Kannon Temple, a great view of the town and the Pacific Ocean. Feeling a little rustic? You can take a rickshaw ride to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine where you can likewise head on over to Komachi shopping street and choose from the arsenal of arts and crafts.

Amazing Dubai Rapid Expansion - tons of pics

Dubai's Rapid Expansion is so immensely beautiful to spectate and feast your eyes upon!

With all the buildings coming up in Dubai, land availability is becoming scarce. So, the Dubai land department is actually helping the land process quite a bit. This land department is supposed to take care of all the land transactions as well as the scarcity of land issue.

The Dubai land department allows the addition of land. For example, the combination of multiple pieces of land is called addition. Given the current trend in land usage, land addition is the only way to go about doing things. Otherwise there is no way that bigger buildings will come up. The LD or the Land Department of Dubai takes care of this business.

Since it was established in the year 1960, the Land Department has been busy taking care of all the land acquisitions as well as all sorts of land issues. The Land department evaluates the land values. The UAE or rather the Dubai Land department helped various folks with the land acquisitions and provided valuable advice regarding land transactions.

The Land department of Dubai gathered a whole bunch of data regarding land acquisition as well as land maintenance. The Land Department keeps track of the top 20 communities of the area. If you go to the website of the Dubai land department, you will find Daily transactions, monthly transactions, fees, schedules and various services related to the Dubai land.

Being one of the seven Emirates in the UAE, Dubai is actually a great location for buying land. This is probably one of the richest places in the world. So, it gives you all the more reason to buy land or rather acquire land in Dubai.
