    The original plan was to head to Shinjuku to see a department store that is known for its macaroons. We got ready by 9 and headed down to the lobby for a quick breakfast, which worked out well. We then headed to the station which is an easy walk out of the basement level of the hotel into an underground walk way. The nice part is that it is partially open on the side for a while, so it's a great use of space and helps ease you into the station. Once in ...

    ... you're in a city at all. After a bit of a hairy moment where Cormac tried to drink the water that you use to purify yourself with like soup, everything went smoothly.

We also saw a couple ...

This place was the home of two very nice guys (fairly sure they were a couple) and even better, it was on one of the best street to see the cheery ...

    ... we spotted small window with bottles in it. Thirst of beer made us to came in. Guess what, again restaurant, even that in the name there stand clearly BAR.

In few moments we met the cook who was very kind for us and few moment later nice couple, that came over dinner to discuss if boyfriend can buy motorcycle (Ducati). We finally have decided to take ...
