    Meiji Jingu

    November 29, 2009 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    On our third day we wanted to visit Meiji Jingu, Harajuku and Shibuya.

    While at Meiji Jingu we saw a wedding, washed our hands and even wrote a little prayer. The place huge and elegantly simple at the same time.

    Roppongi Hills

    November 28, 2009 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 63 °F

    After hours of wandering with tired feet we didn't care for standing during dinner for a meal that hit the spot at this modern izakaya. Some of the things we loved was this chicken soup (pictured) which was great since it was chilly outside and grilled rice ball.

    Roppongi Hills

    November 28, 2009 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 63 °F

    We really took in the vastness of Tokyo through Tokyo City View. Mic was right when she's talked about taking pictures of huge structures as oppose to taking pictures from them.

    Tokyo Tower

    November 28, 2009 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 63 °F

    Mic had a field day taking pictures of Tokyo Tower. Every few minutes she was taking shots of the tower--which I didn't blame her nor minded at all. It was cool walking towards it as it brightly stood over everything. We didn't go up the tower since the line was super long but under it was decked out with Christmas decor and photo op spots that had lines too.Read more

    Asakusa, Tokyo

    November 28, 2009 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 63 °F

    Being a music lover and an amateur musician I was excited to visit the Drum Museum (Taikokan). It was great because we were allowed to play most of the different types of drums they had on display. They also had exhibits of their ancient drum collection as well. After we went to Kitchen Town (Kappabashi) to buy some souvenirs and shopped. You can tell you were there because of a giant chef head and tea cups. Real cool spot obviously find kitchenware at discounted prices. What we loved was seeing everyday Tokyo life as we wandered through the streets to each destination. Tokyo is beautiful.Read more

    Asakusa, Tokyo

    November 28, 2009 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 63 °F

    On the way to the Drum Museum we stopped at Sometaro where we sat on tatami mats and cooked okonomiyaki which was basically pancake/crepe filled goodness. And yes, I cooked it with a little help with some locals who were sitting next to us. Great stuff!

    Tennoji Temple

    November 28, 2009 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 63 °F

    Here at the peaceful and quiet Tennoji Temple was a beautiful courtyard and a century old bronze Buddha Statue. Outside of the Tennoji Temple was the Yanaka Cemetery which was a little creepy. We felt a little uneasy taking picture of tombs but did it anyway.

    Ueno, Tokyo

    November 28, 2009 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 63 °F

    On our second full day we decided to tackle the Tennoji Temple, Kitchen Town, the Drum Museum, Tokyo Tower, and the Mori Art Museum/Tokyo City View. But first pastries...

  • Day2

    Ikebukuro, Tokyo

    November 27, 2009 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    After Otaku city we ended our first full day in Tokyo at Sunshine City. Sunshine City was basically a mall with themed levels of random things with exhibits and vendors all about that theme. There was this one level that seemed like a spooky/halloween level that Mic was too scared to go in. Another one level was all about ice cream. They had rows of exhibits of all kinds of flavors and its different types of packaging. One area was all about gyoza with different vendors. The one we chose a great and delicious!Read more

    Akihabara, Tokyo

    November 27, 2009 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    Otaku town!!! This was definitely on top of my to-do list! Akihabara is every geek's dream--electronic stores, video games, arcades, and lots of French maid themed restaurants. I'm not so much into the French maid stuff but I am a manga/anime fan so we were on the hunt to find the Tokyo Anime Center. It took us forever to find it since there wasn't any signs and we had to ask some people who were nice enough to try to help us in broken english. We truly appreciate the Japanese people for their kindness. But when we finally found the Anime Center I was pretty disappointed. I was expecting to be amazing with wall to wall all things anime because it was in Otaku land but it just felt like a tourist trap. Oh well.Read more
