Things I did in Japan. (Friday through Sunday)
On Friday, I arrived in the evening, so Chris and I ate dinner at a restaurant where the sushi was on a belt and it went around. "Sushi-Go-Round" Pretty much all the sushi was different from what I get in the United States but it was all tasty! I had never had mayonnaise in my sushi before...who knew it would be so good.
After dinner, we went to an Illumination light show
and before going home we stopped in a pet store to see the cute cats and dogs.
On Saturday we went to a fish market in the morning and after wandering around and tasting a bunch of seaweed we had some of the best sushi of my entire life! It was so fresh and the exact opposite of what I eat in China, so I was in heaven.
After lunch we went to Harajuku- the fashion district of Tokyo. We enjoyed crepes with Australians and then saw a store that featured the AKB48 (famous singing group in Japan). We rode around on the metro line for a long time, just talking and looking out the window before going to the Parasite Museum.
While walking home we decided to stop and eat a chocolate croissant and have some tea while watching Tokyo traffic. Then we went to Akihabara- the technology section of Tokyo, and we explored a 7 story toy store and some other fun stores as well. I got a piggy back ride from the metro station to where we decided to eat: We had dinner at sukiya before turning in for the night.
My final day there we went to a Cat Cafe, where you pay to pet cats for an hour (loved it!) and then we went to a comedy show at night. On Monday, Chris and I ran all through Tokyo Station and I missed my bus to get to the airplane, but all went well, because I caught the next bus (thankfully). Tokyo is amazing, and so is Chris for having me. I'm definitely going to be going back.
