Day 5

End of Day 5 now n_____n
I've been shopping like a maniac today, and my body hurts like hell after all the walking. But it's so worth it :D

Mraaaawr..Spiderman-groping *drool*

Today we've been in Shinjuku, Takeshita and Shibuya ^^ We went around taking pictures and shopping mostly. I found Hachikõ as well! Yayy! I was thinking like.."haha, I could just use "The World Ends With You" as a map over Shibuya..lol xD I love that game!

Some pics from Shibuya:

Shibuya crossing :D

Shibuya 109 building. Btw..the guy in the left corner of the picture kinda looks like L..HAHA! I was thinking right now; "I'm undercover, looking for Kira. Hurr~" xD

Me and Hachikõ ^___^

The story about Hachikõ is so cute. But I think it is kinda sad too ;___; The thing about him was that he was the Akita dog of a professor who lived close to the Shibuya station in the 1920's. Hachikõ came to the station every day to await his master's return. But the professor died in 1925 while at work, but Hachikõ still came to wait for his owner everyday for 10 years until his own death. It's a sad story..but I like it. The statue is a nice memory of Hachikõ :) It's also become the most famous meeting place in Tokyo. We saw lots of young people hanging around there texting people and obviously waiting for their friends.. n____n

A little video from Shibuya (at night) ;D

So..that's today's Tokyo-report. My body is dead right now. FUBAR! Haha xD I'm gonna eat snacks and cool off. See ya~!

Day 4

Today we got up really early and took the subway to Ueno to meet Jingna, also knows as Zemotion on deviantART. She brought a friend as well, his name was Chris, also known as Cwfineart on deviantART. They were both incredibly nice n____n Yayz~!

But yuss..we walked around the Ueno park for a bit. This is the time where the Sakura trees are in full bloom, so it was lots of little festivities going on in the park today, as well as people having picnics all over the place :D

Picnic peoples..teehee~

The beautiful Sakura trees~

Here is a little video from the park as well;


After the park we walked to Akihabara. This part of Tokyo is like "the electro-town" or "otaku heaven". They have SO incredibly much electronic stuff and even MORE Anime, manga and cosplay stuff. It's a total overload, I tell ya. Haha xD We went looking for Anime figurines first of all, and we found LOTS and LOTS! So hard to decide what you want when there is so much to choose from :00 I found many cute cosplay outfits as well as dolls and plushies and..well..just..lots of cute and awesome stuff ^___^
I really want one of those ecchi anime figures..like a maid or something. Just for fun xD I might just buy one before I leave. Teehee. We saw lots of adorable maids in Akihabara, they were standing around handing out flyers and stuff..we also came across one of those maid cafés. I am totally fan, oh yesh ;D

Maid~! :D

Anime stuffs! xD

Maid café!

After walking around Akihabara, we managed to stumble across an awesome streetmarket with lots of weird and fun stuff. I think it was there because of the Sakura Festival or something, but yes..it was a fun experience and it smelled really good because they were making food right and left..om nom nom :D

Mmm...octopuus xDD

Welly well..that's about it for today n____n
Tomorrow we're planning Takeshita street again..and Shibuya when darkness settles in. According to Thommas, Shibuya should be best at night. Haha xD

See ya, peeps~ xoxo ;D

Day 3

So..day 3 today :0
Today we went to Shinjuku again, to look for the Square Enix store. And we found it! Oh what a lovely store it is. I had to restrain myself from drooling on Sephiroth lying on display in the floor there..oh em gee ;___; It wasn't really allowed to take any photos there, but I snuck myself to snapping a little one of him with my mobile phone;

and yayyy~! I bought myself a moogle plushie :D

I am small in that picture..lol xDD

We also had to snap some photos of the Sakura flowers ofcourse, seeing as it is springtime in Japan now and the Sakura trees are in full bloom :D

Hahah..Thommas and two japanese guys snapping photos of the sakura flowahs xDD

We decided to swip into Harajuku again, seeing as it's sunday and all the pretty dress-up peoples are out and about on sundays n____n We got to see lots of cute and snazzy dress-ups :D They really know how to work that Harajuku fashion~ Rawr~

Anyways..here are some pictures from Harajuku today;

Ammagawd, lookit me and the cool guuuy~ xDD hahaha

Cute, aren't they? n_____n Teehee~

We walked around for a bit after hanging around at the bridge, and guess what..I met one of my old high school mates :00 What the heck are the odds, huh? xD I was really surprised! I hope I'll see her again..obviously she's here on a study-trip for two weeks, having one week left :0

BUT..yeah..there was also this guy giving out free hugs. I took a picture of him;

and then he stretched out his arms and stuff, so I felt I should hug him too..

"Hello, man..Imma gunna hugs y00"

He even said "Thank you very much" after I hugged him..haha :D Maybe he was one of those creepy, groper peoples :0 Pedobear approves. Lulz xDD

So..yeah..that's it for today. I'm gonna eat something and go to sleep soon. My legs are pretty dead from all the walking right now..ugh xD

Here's a little clip from Takeshita street, if you want to take a look;

Day 2

Second day in Tokyo is over :0
Today we've been wandering around Shinjuku for hours. It was SO incredibly much to see there. Around every corner was something new and interesting to check out :D

"Yo deewd, wz up?"

Wandering the streets of Shinjuku :D

Omg, it's the claaaw machiiine~
With hello kitties! :D

Purikura~! Where everyone looks good xD

"Konnichiwaaaaff~!" ;0

We went to this cute little sushi place there as well, where they had like..conveyor belt-sushi. And it was GOOOD~! The people working there were awesome as well, everyone of them shouting "Irashaimase!" every time a customer came in xD The main guy there spoke great English too n___n he was so nice. But yeah..we ate there and then went on the subway to Harajuku. There weren't many people dressing up when we were there early, but later more of them showed up..only it was too dark to take any pictures then ; 3 ; oh well..hoping for more people tomorrow :)

We wandered around Harajuku for a while..and Takeshita street as well. It was incredibly crowded there, but SO many amazingly awesome stores! WAAI! I've bought some clothes too..that's kinda one of the things I came here for..hahaha xD
Thommas got kinda tired of following me around when I was looking at clothes, but...but...I can't help myself..everything is so pretty-looking and fun..I just want to buy everything, but I am obviously very good at restraining myself :0 cause I'm not broke yet..lol

The bridge in Harajuku. With PEOPLES!

Takeshita street~! Me loves :D

It was pretty crowded in there xD

Hewwo kittyyy~ n______n

My legs are pretty dead now. We got up at like..6 am today, and we've been walking around since 10 am until about 8 pm..so..I'm guessing I'm not far from sleeping now..*yawn*
I'll keep you posted, peeps! See ya ^^

Day 1

Ok, so yeah! We are finally in TOKYO~! Me and Thommas have been skedaddling Shinjuku today..we just got here, so we're pretty dead meat. Our plane trip was beyond awesome though. Even though our tickets said "economy" we got placed in the business class..haha xD So we had each our own TV-screen with lots of movies..LOTS of room for our legs..and our seats could be made into like...bed-seats..it was pretty schweet >w<

Just look :D Mwahahah xD

But anyway..yeah..now we are here..and we're pretty dead, so we thought that a little nap would do the trip. I'll be back with more later :D
