... The machine gives you a ticket wit a number on it. You then take the number inside the restaurant and you get your meal. This was so cool and so cheap. The only thing that bothered me was this communal wash rag in a bowl near us.Matt reached for it to wipe off his hands (Before many meals here we have been given wet hand towels, so he had a reason to do that.) and I realized that it was some sort of shared towel or something because it was dirty. So he ...
... the Takeshita-dori shopping street which was a riot. Packed with people, mostly teens. Mainly clothing shops for the Harajuku girls. It was fun to see. We stopped for a snack of the Harajuku classic crepe. They fill them full of snacks, sweet or savory. They were delicious.
