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.

bought a box of tofu chocolate to try. tasted more like white chocolate though.

img_8682
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.

img_8688
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!

img_8691
oguri shun~ itoko-chan, i took this is specially for you too! :D

img_8693
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.

salmon set.

img_8702
beef set.

random stuff on the way to the metro station.

img_8715
yea, you don’t have to go to all the way to disneyland to buy disney stuff.

img_8716
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!

img_8734
went back to ameyayokocho at ueno again because this time, both my aunts needed to buy an extra luggage each.

img_8718
wandered off to other lanes and came across this. giant jumbo takoyaki!!!

img_8717
when i saw this, i literally screamed that we HAVE to try this. lol.

img_8722
the fillings.

the toppings. bonito flakes + mayo and ikura + seaweed.

img_8727
they have a website if anyone’s interested.

img_87351
went back to ikebukuro because the grown ups wanted to have dinner at mensoubou mutekiya again before leaving tokyo.

img_8738
saw these beautiful tomatoes along the way.

img_8743
long queue yet again.

img_8749

img_8751
both aunts had this.

img_8753
mine. because i didn’t want so many pieces of meat. one is enough.

img_8754
dad’s negi buta ramen.

img_8741
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!
me: -_-.

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.
