Commentaries to come later! I'm too lazy to type them out atm... "=__=
Shinjuku station :D Our BFF whilst we were staying at the Shinjuku Washington Hotel...train rides + daily exercise woots
Our first meal in Takashimaya...Takai....Takashimaya lol
...Purple broccoli, which incidentally has absolutely nothing to do with Japan at all. Just wanted to post it on my blog. For LOLs. Mom said that they were a hybrid. "A hybrid with what? Eggplants?" I had asked in return.
Purplish dragonfruit. Also nothing in relation to Japan. LOL.
Green tea kit kat from Japan :))
Okay, so it's a little disgusting-looking. But I assure you, this gigantic green tea Pocky stick is extremely yummy
Green tea chocolate XD
The famous Tokyo Banana...got conned :( After buying it happily at 1000 yen per box at the Tokyo Tower gift shop, my happiness was short-lived after I discovered that they sold it cheaper at the airport "-__-
Complementary cat tail that came with the cosplay outfit I bought. Muahahahahaha XD
All the little trinkets
The Sakura frappuccino from Starbucks. Heh.
The Love-Letter-like biscuit-y item
The Yakisoba Bread!! I felt obliged to try it after watching Yakitate Japan, but somehow it ended in the bin after one bite
Puck Burger scene
Lights at Mosaic St on the night we got conveniently lost *ahem*
The folks at some random restaurant in Sunshine City...I wrote my name on the waiting list. I got called "Sean-sama". Hahahahahah.
The only Gyudon I managed to have in Japan. It was at the airport, but it was surprisingly good. Darn. Now I wish that I could've tried the roadside one. In fact, we walked by Yoshinoya like a gazillion times but I never had the chance :((((
Final dinner in Shibuya. All-you-can-eat Sukiyaki for 2000 yen per person. LOL. Beef guy for the winnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
Shibuya 109. So much for covering all 10 floors (?I think there's 10 floors). We didn't even get to cover one :(
The front of Asakusa temple.
The Condom Twins, mascots of the Tokyo Tower. Don't ask me why there's two of them when there's only one tower. Oh, and for those who are wondering, they're not really called that. They were just dubbed with that name by Yours Truly. Call it inspiration if you must.
Tsukiji Fish Market in Ginza
Cosplay outfit #1. So much easier to wear compare to mine. I want a swap NAO!!
Absolutely gorgeous cakes! Not to mention superbly fattening. Every second shop is either a bakery, crepe shop or some sweet/dessert-y place. How do the Japanese remain so skinny?? Most shops only have clothes up till the 'M' size argghhh.
My thumb beside the mini kimchi pizza slice.
Yakiniku at Jojo-en in...errr....hmmm. Well, in some departmental store. Toei? Seibu? Oh well.
Yes, the name of the store really is Condomania. All things Condom and Condom-related.
Takeshita Dori! A heaven-sent place in Harajuku
Awkward family trip to Kabukicho at night. As in, majorly awkward. Super, majorly awkward, really. Especially since it's a redlight district area. We were sorta semi-playing the "Guess-the-pimp" game, but it was unbelievably easy, so we gave up.
Mosaic street again. Sorry. The pics are pretty much random.
Animate!! 8(?) floors of anime goodies! WootsThe
Sis's favourite "Every-yaki" shop. We couldn't call it Takoyaki since it didn't just have the "Tako"...it had EVERYTHING from cheese, cabbage, mushrooms, corn etc etc, so it had to be Every-yaki
Ginza's Kabuk-za (theatre). We watched a performance (and probably would've stayed for another if we had seats instead of standing) for about 1100 yen per person (1400 for English audiophones with about 1000 yen refundable...but it's probably better enjoyed without the audiophones if you can understand just bits and pieces of Japanese). My sis filled out a questionnaire about the play.
Q1: What's your favourite quote?
Ans (sis): "FUBUKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII~~~~~~!"
My personal favourite has got to be the part whereby the Falconer scoots across towards good ol' Fubuki, turns his head towards her/him, and yells, "KATSU!!"
SHAMURAIII. With a "H". Heh.
Ahhhhhhhhhh. The Otoro.........
Premium fatty tuna. Medium fatty tuna. And fatty tuna. Multiple serves of each, please. Might I add that since they were conveniently located within the fish market the cost of each sushi was double the normal price?
