Sat Last day in Tokyo [Mar. 3rd, 2014|12:15 pm]
MorbidFrog
Saturday 15 February:
Imperial Palace, Wet Snow, Manga district and Alice in Wonderland Restaurant.
Our last full day in Tokyo , our attempt to visit the Imperial Palace and Gardens was quite an adventure due a six-inch crust of snow with a further six inches of frozen melt-water below it. We did see the palace from afar and were soaked to our knee (and remained like that till very late that night…not pleasant)
Furry snow boots are not good shoes when soaked…as they just do not dry fast.


another very Japaneses thing tube only for woman in rush hours

We abandoned the idea of trudging through the gardens. Last minute shopping at Oriental Bazaar, Kiddyland and more Harajuku.

From there we met up with Audrey to explore Akihabara (Tokyo ’s district dedicated to computer games, manga , anime and maid bars). Did more funny photos booth , but this time in maid outfit (well the few limbs I could squish inside it) . Incredible multi-storey shops of just anime stuff, with floors for just boys or girls.For dinner we booked in one of the Alice themed restaurant , super cute and atmospheric, the menu come in a box, we had playing card shaped bread and sushi in the shape of the smoking caterpillar by Alice-dressed waitresses. Before catching last train had one last sake in little noodle bar packed our bag…waving a sad goodbye to Tokyo when boarding plane the next morning.

Did you shop loads, or is everything very expensive?

return with quite a few bits like london you have some expensive stuff and very cheap. wasn't too bad. we bought lots of accessories, rings, backpack, few items of clothing sadly all the fab lolita ones were all one size so limited to fit in anything. alcohol was very good prices so return with some sake and whisky in pretty bottles and usual souvenirs of trinkets and masks for the wall
