Winter Japan Trip 2011-2012

Since today was a Saturday and my friends (L and Y) who have normal jobs were free,
I asked them to take H and I out and about in Tokyo.

We met up in Asakusa.

This is what we see right when we exit the subway station.
It's such a touristy place! LOL.

We went to lunch at Rokumonsen, a place my friend A recommended.

Beef tendon okonomiyaki (front), squid mentai monja (back).

I didn't take pictures of monja because they're not the prettiest thing in the world.



I did take pictures of the temple and stuff, but they're pretty boring.
You know what's exciting?
Food!


What I like about coming to Asakusa is the deep-fried manju.

This was kabocha deep-fried manju.



We traveled to the Hamarikyu Gardens via the Tokyo Cruise.

It was such a nice day.

The contrast of the Japanese garden and the city in the background is pretty spiffy.

We then went to Roppongi Hills.
It's mostly blah blah holiday boring stuff, but the one awesome thing about this place was...

This!

Even the ticket dispenser is cute!

We then went to Shinjuku, where they were having a festival at one of the shrines.
It was for Tori no Ichi, where people would go and buy decorated kumade (rakes) to wish for good fortune and a thriving business.
The kumade is so that they can rake in good fortune. (Or money. Heh heh.)

Shinjuku


I don't really believe in buying things for luck and stuff, so I didn't really show much concern...

I was mainly looking at the food.

We then went the Shinjuku Golden Gai area.

My friend H wanted to go into one of the bars, so we chose one with an anime theme.
Obviously the guy is an otaku...
I wanted to keep my occupation a secret, but I had to reveal it in the end.

Haha, not that I really mind...

I was so tired at the end of the day, but I had a LOT of fun.
Thanks, L & Y, for showing us around!!
