you can see how popular of a meetup spot this is. One thing I found that helps, is being very specific in the meetup spot. For example, in this case I said at the hachiko statue, infront of the green train. This makes it alot easier for people to find you and vice-versa! ^_^
This is the haamburger curry breakfast. Most times when you order food, you can specify Omori(big portion). I'm glad they offer this, since sometimes regular meals aren't enough for me. Also, another thing that's pretty cool is most places always give you miso soup with your meal.
After breakfast we made our way across town to go check out Harajuku. One thing that's really nice,especially in the city is how smooth the roads are! Next time I come here, I'm for sure going to bring my skateboard to get around instead of walking. lol
One thing that sort of caught me off guard was this free public wifi! Usually you need to go to a coffee shop or something, so this is something I think would be really cool to implement in other countries!
Turns out Ken Block is hosting a gymhana event going on in Odaiba soon, so the jdm monster girls, and the rest of the monster team were out promoting and hanging out free drinks. Something tells me people like that alot better than pointless tissues. :p
another thing I noticed in japan is some wierd store names...this one i'm not sure why its called happy room, but it kinda makes me want to go there. lol
It was pretty hot out, so we decided to stop off in this cafe callded Pearl Lady to grab some bubble tea.
Little did we know, Fuji TV was actually shooting for their afternoon news segment! 0_o
But then, just like these two high school girls, Me and Kosuke were actually interviewed...in Japanese! 0_o Luckily I didn't mess anything up, but the TV staff were pretty amazed I was able to listen and reply to questions in japanese. lol Sadly, my friend didn't record the show, so I don't have any footage of it. But, the name of the program I believe was Super News.
Apparently, you can eat puffer fish in japan. But, from what Teppei tells me, yo need a special license to serve it since it contains poison and needs to be handled a certain way. Its safe to say, I wasn't feeling quite that risky this time to eat there. :p
After eating food I was pretty familiar with, Tappei decided to have me try some wierder stuff. lol This one is chicken skin, and gizzard. The taste was actually totally fine, but the consistency I didn't really like.
One thing that's pretty cool is we got some free sushi for helping out some Europeans and the Sushi chef solve an issue with their bill. For our troubles, we were given some free sushi! Also, its worth noting how cheap the sushi is!!
After getting sushi, we called it a night, and headed out at Shimbashi station. One downside to taking the train in tokyo late at night, is they stop at midnight. So, getting on the train, Especially the Yamanote line around 11-12 is always a chore from it being crazy crowded. ><
The following day was the last one I had to be in tokyo, so I made some plans to grab food, and do some shopping for friends.
