Before I talk about the subject title of this post I’ll give a quick rundown of the day.
Woke up nice and early for a traditional Japanese breakfast of boiled eggs, yogurt and a banana (not in the same dish…) and then headed out to the local market. After what was a seemingly endless walk through a crowd of people (little did I know this was not going to be the worst of it today) we went up the information centre to get a quick overview of the surrounding area
The centre of the pastry was filled with cream cheese and it was great! After eating we headed on the underground to Harajuku which is the main shopping district of japan. Here you will all the classic expensive brands like Louis Vuitton, Burberry and my personal favourite Apple.
A delightful lobster roll.
The above is the hipster clothing/eatery area of Japan and it was SO full of people. It took nearly 25 mins to get across to the other side just because of the above!
Yeah yeah it looks like take a shit haha. Some dude wanted to film us dancing with him for some sort of music video and of course I was happy to oblige.
After our amazing dancing escapade was captured we headed to the Meiji Shrine which is located in Shibuya, Tokyo. It is the shrine that is dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shōken.
Lucky timing as we got to see a traditional Japanese wedding reception whilst at the temple.
I wanted to go to a shiba inu cafe but it was fully booked so I made do with a owl cafe which I sort of regret going as I saw the poor creatures tied up with locks.
On the other hand I got to play with otters and meerkats which you can see below! The owner clearly loved them as he had plenty of food and treats available for the little critters. Maybe this was the second best experience of my life because as you know the koala bear is number one.
Ramen is bloody good out here but that was to be excited.
It was back to Akihabara for more some more computer games which is satisfying my lust as I really want to play the new Red Dead Redemption game (less than 3 weeks to go – not like I’m counting or anything).
Outside the biggest sex shop in Tokyo. Six floors for your sexual pleasure. No camera were allowed which is probably a good thing as I saw some weird shit in there.
Sushi making class in the morning, finally I can learn to do it and I’m going to make everyone jealous.
