we spent almost the entire day in shibuya. there’s just too many things to see (for me). the adults were just tagging along. XD.
started my day with a melon pan and
1/4 of a peach. amazing stuff.
hachiko statue – a famous meeting spot for the japanese.
some buildings that define shibuya:
these are too pretty not to take:
bought a box of tofu chocolate to try. tasted more like white chocolate though.
one of the recommended shops featured on 8-days. definitely a must go. it’s basically a shop which compiles bestselling items all over japan. mostly cosmetics but they do sell electronics, cds and books as well. i got my in-ear earphones there.
this place is catered more for ganguro – tan, blonde japanese girls.
crazy pedestrian crossing.
another place nobody must miss! the loft. beauty products, quirky home wares and stationery are their niche. i bought loads of stuff from this place. nori (seaweed) punchers, dentures ice trays, musical note hooks, stickers and etc.
i squealed when i saw these!
oguri shun~ itoko-chan, i took this is specially for you too! :D
came across this while looking for a place to have lunch. sweets paradise and a long queue. must be good stuff. but we didn’t go for it. i wonder what the “90 min” means. eat as much as you can in 90 minutes? lol.
*afternote: i did a little search on yahoo. see this and this. omygosh. i regretted not dragging the adults in. i was right about the eat all you can in 90 minutes thing. and entrance fee is 1000-1999yen ($14-$28) only! MUST GO NEXT TIME. no matter what.
had lunch at this place. it’s something like yoshinoya.
random stuff on the way to the metro station.
yea, you don’t have to go to all the way to disneyland to buy disney stuff.
saw this in one of the departmental stores. why would anyone pay so much just to eat a cubed watermelon?! round ones are just as fine!
went back to ameyayokocho at ueno again because this time, both my aunts needed to buy an extra luggage each.
wandered off to other lanes and came across this. giant jumbo takoyaki!!!
when i saw this, i literally screamed that we HAVE to try this. lol.
the toppings. bonito flakes + mayo and ikura + seaweed.
they have a website if anyone’s interested.
went back to ikebukuro because the grown ups wanted to have dinner at mensoubou mutekiya again before leaving tokyo.
saw these beautiful tomatoes along the way.
long queue yet again.
both aunts had this.
mine. because i didn’t want so many pieces of meat. one is enough.
dad’s negi buta ramen.
after dinner, we walked around until the shops closed. it was my last day at tokyo.
next post: onsen and tons of omiyage goodness.
shall officially end this post with this video.
my dad bought this. our conversation went like this:
me:dad, why did you buy this?
dad: cute what. singapore doesn’t have this.
me: but it’s useless!
dad: never mind la!
it would be better if there was some kind of storage available but noo. it’s just an irritating gimmick. the noise it makes is unbearable after 5 minutes.
