Tokyo, Japan

It’s the first week of the new year and I am so thankful for everything that has happened in 2015. Work was really great, we got to do a lot of traveling, and I finally got to meet my nephew! It’s so crazy to think that I’m an aunt now. Every time I go back home to Florida the trip feels too short. My sister is my best friend and it gets hard living so far away but at the same time I’m really happy every time I come back home because for now it is home.

 

I tried posting this Japan blog months ago but being a terrible writer AND having writers block can cause some major issues so I put it on the back burner till after the holidays. Now that some time has gone by I’m really excited to share this trip because I get to relive it.

 

Electric Town

Electric town is filled with electronic stores, casinos, and arcades that are five stories high. It’s amazing. We got a ton of cool gifts there, ate some of the best dumplings I’ve ever had, and saw some cool anime exhibits.

Alcatraz ER

This is a prison/hospital themed restaurant. You eat dinner in a cell and the waitresses dress in sexy nurse uniforms. To be honest the food wasn’t all that great but then again it’s not really the kind of place you go to for the food. We shared the boobs rice (which is exactly what it sounds like) and ordered a ton of themed drinks including one which is served in a ‘severed head’.

Harajuku

If you like shopping or are into Japanese fashion then this is the place to go. I had so much fun Christmas shopping here. It’s overcrowded but it’s worth a visit. They sell Tamagotchis here! Actual Tamagotchis. I thought they were extinct. I was so tempted to buy one just to relive my childhood a little but they are expensive and they are not exactly the same as the originals. Now they’re in color and have wifi so you can play with your friends. Another exciting part of Harajuku was finding a boba tea stand! Anyone who knows me knows that boba tea is my favorite snack. It’s called Sisters and it’s delicious but make sure you ask for extra tapioca because it doesn’t come with very much.

Meiji Shrine and Yoyogi Park

The shrine and park are directly across the street from Harajuku so you can do both in one day. This park is amazing. It’s kind of like Central Park in New York only you feel like you’ve landed on another planet. Even with people around it’s very peaceful. The Meiji Shrine is dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shoken. We were lucky enough to be there during a traditional Japanese wedding which was really exciting.

Shibuya

Shibuya is a part of town similar to Time Square. Lots of building, lots of people, and lots to do. We ate at a conveyor belt sushi restaurant, wandered around town, and had drinks at this really cool bar filled with chandeliers.

Senso-ji Temple

On our last day in town we visited the Senso-ji Temple, Tokyo’s oldest temple. Here we got to walk around the grounds and try some amazing street food.

    i see your blog has some unique content. writing manually is the only right way to do it. and you did it ! seriously though, thanks for sharing. again in some pics you look totally wonderously mysteriously and newly-perfectly harmonious ! i just havent dared say beautiful, but that’s it. sometimes people say well what’s beauty ? but rarely they ask well what’s wonderful? what’s mysterious? what’s harmonious ? anyhoo, yah japan: i only spent like 70hrs there but it’s more interesting to me than china where i spent 2 months. spent ? lived ! …….a friend(sort-of) of mine once recorded a song about pachinko balls.

    Once I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any way you possibly can take away me from that service? Thanks!

    Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp a lot about this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I think that you just could do with some p.c. to drive the message home a little bit, however instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

    You could definitely see your skills within the paintings you write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart. “Everyone has his day and some days last longer than others.” by Sir Winston Leonard Spenser Churchill.
