TOKYO day 4: Asakusa & Shibuya
I haven’t had much time to write blogs the past few days so I missed a couple of days worth of posts. Since I still have an hour until my flight (sitting here in front of the gate right now), I guess I’ll go back in time for a little while and write them. ^^
First thing in the morning we got on the train to Asakusa. I didn’t think I would enjoy it much (I’m not a fan of temples and museum and the like), but it was quite enjoyable. I guess we all need a nice break from shopping. ^^
We arrived at around 10AM and it was already very busy. And humid. And hot. And sunny. That wasn’t very pleasant.
Luckily there were a lot of nice food shops which made it all worth it.
I’m a sucker when it comes to this type of marketing. As you can see.
There was a nice clear view of the Skytree from there.
Afterwards we walked over to Sumida Park, but because it’s not the season for cherry blossoms, it wasn’t particularly nice.
On the way back to the station, we passed by a small restaurant with really good and cheap food so we went to check it out.
It was absolutely delicious and if I remember correctly, only around 850 yen for the set. The owner was also very nice and gave us the nicest table in the restaurant. He also offered to help us take a picture. When we were leaving, we talked a bit and it turned out he was born in the US; that’s why his English was fairly good. Overall good experience!
We then took the train to Shibuya to go to the 109.
The clothes there aren’t really my type (and kind of too expensive) but I got a shirt with my sis (2 for 2000).
Then we went to BookOff and I spoiled myself. Again. Oops haha.
It can’t be helped. I’m really materialistic, but I’m also really cheap. So now that the BookOff in Vancouver is gone, I have to stock up as much as I can. ^^”
When we went back to the hotel that day, we were just flipping through the channels and suddenly, bam! This cartoon popped up.
So yup, that’s about it for day 4. Maybe I’ll write day 5 before we board…
