Our second day in Tokyo. I got jetlagged and slept way toooo long this morning. Missed hotel’s breakfast, but I had some rise balls spared that I could eat. So good!
I tried to eat something that I really didn’t know what it was – but now I know: umeboshi….! It was probably the most disgusting thing I’ve ever eaten. I thought it would be sweet like cherry, but no no. I can’t even explain what it tasted like, you have to experience it yourself… experience the horror…
On the other hand I like Japanese fluffy pancakes that you can buy at FamilyMarts. They are filled with something that seem to be vanilla cream and… maybe syrup. Taste sweet… very good.
This is outside our hotel.
I’m very curious about this store…
A regular smoking room in Japan… Gosh… I miss the freedom of smoking outside…anywhere… as you can do in Sweden.
Don’t run in the subway!
I decided to make a short visit to Shibuya today.
The famous crossing in Shibuya at the Hachiko exit. So many people….
Here is the statue of the famous dog Hachiko, he waited for his dead master to show up at the station for nine years… Poor dog.
A filming team wanted Jessica to act in front of the camera. They asked me too, so I guess they was looking for gaijins… ;-)
Time for some food… I ate some mochi! I love the one with cherry in it!
Then we headed to Akihabara! The electronic city and haven of the nerds… ^^
In Akihabara we socialized a bit with a friend of mine, Toyookasan.
Sign in the batroom. Which button to you push to flush? ;-)
Then we headed to Ikebukuro.
We went to a Japanese restaurant with the singer in the Japanese band I -アイ-
We could order via a technical device at the table, not need for a waitress. ^^
Cassis beer… black currant taste – very sweet and good!
Delicious tuna sushi!
He treated us so much great food.
I like Japanese restaurants when you can sit in a cozy booth like this!
