Today we finished up our fourth day in Tokyo. Let me just say this, it is very intense and at times extremely overwhelming.
First we got the weather, temperature seems to have been around a steady 30 degrees Celsius. Adding to that is that the extremely humid.
Then we got neon lights, screaming sales persons, and huge masses of people crossing streets and changing trains at the various metro stations.
Friday we spent in Shibuya, browsing around stores and checking out people. We managed to locate the Resident Evil café but as it was closed we need to re-visit.
Saturday we went to Ginza for a shorty. Ginza seems to be very upscale with fancy smancy stores like Prada and such, nothing for me and Lev, of course.
After dark we went for a walk along the Sumida River and snapped some pics.
Today was Sunday and we went to Harajuku and that place is wicked intense. Shop owners screaming outside their stores to attract customers, so much people you can’t turn around without knocking someone down and tons of fun stuff to buy. We missed to cosplay at the park so we’re going back next Sunday.
After Harajuku we went home for a quick break consisting of a cool down shower for me, then we headed out again. We went down to Ginza and to Tokyo Tower.
Tokyo Tower is like the Eiffeltower in Paris, but actually a bit taller. We went up to the main observatory and got a great view of Tokyo, then we went down and got ice cream at BaskinRobbins.
After a long day out I’m tired, looking forward to watching someting, fall asleep and then tomorrow take on Aikhabara with Lev!
