Aaand we are back in Japan. I suppose it was going to happen eventually.
This time around will be Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka, but this time we will be adding Takayama to the list. Popular vacation town in the middle of the mountains somewhere. As luck would have it a volcano erupted there recently. Luckily the winds a blowing the ash in the other direction so we should be good.
Random shop in inaricho. No inari here though snort snort
What’s that? We look tired? That’s because the damn Air Asia plane decides to arrive just before the final train departs the airport!
Here’s me at a ninja shop wishing I had a sword so I can be a cool ninja too
Neat design for the chairs at Ekimise in Asuakusa
Pretending I’m Japanese. Quickly reverted to pyjamas, so much more comfy.
Our first hotel. Pretty good, barely any room to move but that is also known in Japan as “too much room”
Mmm cold soba. A fare treat in Perth, but here it’s normal food! Wow!
These mayo bottles have a convenient shape to grab onto
Had these the first time around. Still good!
Even the shopping trolleys were efficiently sized
The ninja shop has targets for kids to aim at. I was tempted but decided against trying it out.
The Japanese equivalent of an expedit perhaps?
Some toilets have the “Princess flush”. You can now perform perpetual poops in peace. It really helps surprisingly enough. Not as well as squat toilets though.
I really missed this drink. But I find I’m already getting sick of it. Uhoh…
You too can be like a bee
Baskets on bikes are not for girls! They’re really handy!
Gasp! It’s AKB48! GOLLY GOSH
For those stressful phone calls…
Aren’t crocs a sauna shoe? So waterproof for hot environments? Hmm…
Eye widener, jaw openers, nose… Pointerers
No one is allowed in the shop. AKB48 are THAT amazing
Came across an arcade that seemed to be exclusively rhythm games! Heaven? You be the judge.
These guys were even hardcore enough to have gloves!
Akihabara at night.
