Japan Travelogue: It's on!  

Hi, minna!

YAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tokyo!!!!!!!!!!!!! \^o^/

B.A. and I arrived here this morning and now we're both totally spent, but I already love being here.

So, what were my first impressions? The very first thing that hit me were the many employees that are basically everywhere to either tell you where to go, or what to do. It's really definitely not true anymore that you'll easily get lost at the airport, or on your way to Tokyo. The staff all speak a fair English and we got straight to the luggage claim and exchanged our part time tickets for a railway pass. Then right into the next train, including seat reservation, and you're heading towards Tokyo. Everything went quite smoothly, really. Well, we were both already tired. I'll sleep through the night, even with the weird pillow we have. XD

Next thing I saw: NewS. Posing on a TV guide cover. XD Really, the first small department store and there they were. And really, Johnnies are like EVERYWHERE! O_O Next thing I saw was a huge add for KAT-TUN, then SMAP, an add with Toma, one with Kimura, a Karaoke bar was advertising with Kanjani's "Musekinin Hero" and I'M pretty sure that if we had wondered further into the city, we would have found more. ^^

Hm... What else? I visited my first shrine today. That was really cool too. A smaller one, right in between two sky scrapers. It looks quite interesting.

The first Tori of my life

Oh, shisa! ^^

Wishboard with wishes

B.A.'s highlight of the day: A shrine lantern with an energy saving bulb

Christmas Time

Oval sky scraper

OOOOHHHHHHH, and then I saw some of those guys, who dress like hosts. XD Or maybe they were hosts, who knows. ^^" But really, on TV it looks a bit flashy, but in real life, it's (almost) bizarr. XD Ah, and then I had a first glimpse at Tokyo Dome and I ate my first frozen raspberries. Sorry if I'm incoherent, but my brain's alreadz pretty slow. Will try to do better for the next parts.

Will try to update again soon.

For now, I'll be off to bed soon.
I'll let you know what's going on around here.

Hugs to everybody! ^^

Ok, I KNEW you would be in Japan by now, but still...it's different to read from you, while you're there I guess XD

I know what you mean, honestly, you cannot escape J&A ^^
I remember, right when we arrived in Tokyo, we went into a Konbini and there were sooo many magazines - everyone with a JE up front O.o
Please take a photo of the adds XD (when we went there we took a photo of nearly every running add I think LOOL The people must have thought we're some crazy gaijin...)

And Tokyo Dome T_T OMG...you're soooo lucky!!! T_T

I wish you loooo~ts of fun!!! ^^
oh, and if you need the address to some 2nd hand JE stuff, just ask ^^

I know, it's totally different. XD
WAH, I'm in Tokyo!!!!!!!!

LOOOOOOOOL!!!!!!!! I thought exactly the same when I took pics of every Johnny I found on our way. XD They must think I'm crazed out. But it's really good fun to see all of this. ^^

Ah, I wanted to ask about some stores I could go to. Could you please PM me some addresses - or whatever is most useful? That would be great, thanks!

I'm still getting used to all these new things here, but really, it's brilliant! I'll write my report later.

Oh, cutie icon! ^^

Aw, please don't cry. ^^"
I thought I said I'd buy an Uchiwa for you?

We alreadz have our train tickets from Kyoto to Tokyo on the 31st. Travelling on that day will be quite busy, I think. But we have our seats and everything.

Mah, Tokyo Dome I've only seen from the outside so far. It looked pretty small from where I was standing. XD I'm really curious about it now.
ルナーたん luna_truths on December 18th, 2010 12:46 pm (UTC)
I will not cry! Because I just remembered you said you would buy me an Uchiwa. ^^'' I forgot about it until just now. Haha... *Coughs*

Wahhh... I'm so jealous. I would have been able to go if I hadn't gotten sick and lost my job. ;__; Just have a lot of fun for me? ^^ I'm so excited for you and yet I'm jealous at the same time. Really are your seats good?

Really? It looked small? Well.. I bet its REALLY big inside. ^^
