... still having a hard time understanding this Japanese phenomenon!
Of course we had to stop by a few AKB48 stores that sold their group paraphernalia (music, decorations, clothing, posters, wine, everything!) and cafes that sold tickets to see their performances or even meet them live. They're so protective of their image that I wasn't allowed to take any pictures inside the stores.
Then we headed to another uniquely Japanese concept ...
... drag went out like crazy! I fixed it up, and tighten my drag, jumped into the chair and waited, waited for him to turn back around toward the boat so I could gain back some ground, and so I slowly reeled back in and he bolted to the boat, so I had instantly gained the line back I had lost.

... he was doing alright. Nice watch, nice clothes. Not happening buddy! Today's encounter, he did't come back after we said no thank you, we're fine. Maybe he remembered us too :-)
Jumped on another train to Ginza where we looked around Ginza St, all the high end stores.
Jumped on another train to Omote-Sando. We really like Omoto-Sando and will stay there next time. Lots of high end stores ...

Our steps today are a pitiful 7000.
Back on the trains and foot again tomorrow. Jus will be reacquainted with his old school and 6th grade teacher who is now the Principal of Junior ...
