Japan... in a nutshell part 1

Instead of going through my Japan trip day by day, I decided to just highlight the best aspects.
So here we go!
I'll post my shopping haul in another post
guh here comes a crap load of pictures! I'll post them a bit smaller since there are so many >.< I think you can click on the pictures to make it bigger? (if not...failll)

We stayed in Shinagawa. Pretty nice area- a little boring compared to Shibuya/Shinjuku, but it worked out really well.

Tsutaya (sp?)! We spent so much time and money here, its not even funny. The drink there is a mango passion blended tea (I think). It was super good and saved me from dehydration a few times haha!

In Tsutaya I found these lovely items~ I was so tempted to buy the Hana Yori Dango (Korean) soundtrack, but it was like 3,000 yen (~$30). Big Bang was doing their promotions for My Heaven/Gara Gara Go. We totally missed their fanmeeting/photo session by ONE DAY. Guhhh...
Oh! We saw Rookies in theaters there! Only understood bits and pieces of the actual dialogue, but it was easy enough to follow the plot to be really really enjoyable. It was so much fun!
Yuu Shirota and Yamanote Yuusukue LOVE!

Shibuya, not doubt, is where we spent most/all our time. The first picture shows an ad for some vampire drama. We caught the last ten minutes of it... cant say its my favorite but the ads were everywhere!
The second picture is right outside of shibuya 109-2 (aka the meeting ground of all the hot men ladies in america dream of). We build up courage and walked up to the top levels (where the mens clothing is) and quickly QUICKLY left after being so intimidated by all the good looking men!

Center gai~
After scattering after the 109-2 overload, we headed to center gai to find the purikura mecha. We were out when all the club promoters were out. One guy stopped us, it went something like this:
Promoter: *wave* Hi!
Me: ............HI! *wave*
Promoter: Hungry?!
Me: *in Japanese* I dont speak Japanese!
Then we left quickly with the guy shouting stuff in Japanese after us.

There was a similar experience in Shinjuku. Some host was waving at us from a taxi. Me, being a doufus, waved back, which pleased the host very much. Then traffic slowed down and we ended up walking right near the taxi as it was taking a turn. They rolled down the window and kept waving at us. I think I continued to wave at them like an idiot haha!
So I got hit on by a host in Japan?

Thats it for now! I'll post another entry with all the stuff I bought!

Japan Day 1

Kind of a downer...
so I'll make it brief

Alright here we go!

The plane ride was awful! Absolutely awful! My friend got sick on the plane. Perhaps it was the food? In any case, it didn't quite start out on the best note. At least she got better by the end of that night.

We got to the hotel. Typical small but practical Japanese room. The hotel itself turned out to be very helpful and convenient. More on that in a later post.

There really wasn't much on TV. So we ended up watching the Korean channels more than anything. (Well, except Mr. Brain. I re-named it Mr. Gerbil since he had a gerbil in his pocket).

ISNT THIS KID CUTE? We watched a morning kids program about pokemon and stuff like that. This kid is absolutely adorable. The girl kept getting in front of him and I got angry hahaha~

Well thats all for now~ The first day was pretty depressing, so I might just fast-forward or select good parts to share. What do you think?

Hello everyone! I just got back from my trip this morning. Anxious to hear how it went?
I'll give you a quick little update before I give you the full breakdown of the trip (and all the clothes I bought >.<) I got sick on Saturday and Sunday EPIK(as in Epik High) FAIL. I had some kind of virus that caused me to be very nauseous and I had some crazy anxiety. Besides that and a few other obstacles like my friend getting sick and constant low blood sugar, it was REALLY GOOD.

Shibuya was everything and more than I expected it to be. I've been there once before but this time I got to appreciate it so much more. We went during the 5 days bargain in Shibuya 109. Which was a blessing but also a curse. I was not expecting the craziness that accompanied EVERY shopkeeper shouting at customers and them following me around trying to get me to buy stuff. (I had to whip out some Japanese skill pretty damn fast but it ended up in kind of fail XD).

Also. Shibuya 109-2 was amazing and terrifying at the same time. Soooooooo many good looking guys in one place! We ended up boy scouting from the starbucks across the street for a good couple of hours! lololol.

Well this was just a brief update before I post pictures! I'm so tired ~____~
