So we get up early for our trip on the ferry to Boulogne France.
I think the whole theme for my last day was food food and food. Everywhere we went we ate. It was getting close to 7pm so Aiko suggested we go for a Chinese. It's a good job I'm a greedy cow and able to eat lots. On the menu was ebi soba, gyoza and roast pork. Oishi!
It was then time for us to say our goodbyes. Aww it was so sad leaving the both of them. Maybe I can join them when they take a trip to London next year. We all had so much fun.Read more
Because I didn't really have a plan for the day, and because I was having such a great time with Agasei and Aiko, I stayed on with them. They asked if there was anything I would like to do but in all honesty I was just happy having a good chat and spending time with them. We ended up in a Hawaian coffee shop at Prince Hotel. We ordered a mix sandwich set (yes more food) and drinks. We were there for a while, laughing and talking but the waitresses seemed quite rude to me. They kept coming over looking at our bill and I noticed a few waitresses kept looking over at us. It really started to annoy Aiko. Maybe they thought we were riff raff. The place did seem kind of posh but still, we're paying customers!Read more
After our wagyu, we went to a coffee shop where Aiko is a regular. Aiko had a steady stream of familiar faces greeting her. She was like a celebrity waving hello to everyone. The three of us ordered a shaved ice dessert. Agasei had mango, Aiko and I had macha flavour. I was expecting a tiny bowl like you get in the Chinese buffet but it was HUGE!
After dessert we walked around some shops and took some silly pics. It was great fun 😁Read more
For my last day in Tokyo I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do. Agasei messaged me early in the morning and asked if I would be up for lunch with herself and Aiko at Shinagawa so I agreed. The place we went to was one of Aiko's favourite steak houses where wagyu beef is served. She chose her usual chef and he prepared it in front of us. It was great. You know why wagyu is expensive when you taste it. It just melts in the mouth. It was such a nice treat from Aiko.Read more
I got off Shinkansen at Shinagawa station with the intention of going straight to the hotel because I was tired but then remembered I hadn't really seen the city view at night. The Tokyo Government Building free observation deck was still open so I took the train to Shinjuku and got some amazing views. One of Skytree in the distance.Read more
