I am still reminiscing about our trip to Tokyo a few years ago. You know how I’ve gushed about being in cities-how I love the sharp lines of the buildings. One of my favorite buildings had an electric-blue mirrored entrance:
Tokyo is a heavily populated city in a small space, and I admire how they’ve incorporated things like parks and water into their skyscraper landscape.
Have you heard the Legend of the dog Hachiko? If not, check out this youtube video telling the story. We rented this film from the library that was based on Hachiko’s story. Even though we knew how the story ended, we still cried our eyes out! Here’s the link to the movie trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUNQjYe870
Shopping was a ton of fun. We went to several department stores. One had 3 FLOORS of shoes! This photo shows maybe half of ONE floor. Too bad Americans have “such big feet.” I wear 7.5 or 8 and the sales girl was hard-pressed to find any in my size.
I also visited the fabric department and fell head-over-heels for the selection. It was SO MUCH FUN just wandering around in there!
One night we had the pleasure of experiencing karaoke with friends…
…and also the experience of waiting in line for a cab after our train ride. (This was 3 AM mind you!)
grabbed sushi as it came around on a conveyor belt (“fatty salmon” or “crab guts” anyone?),
and watched street musicians give it their all.
