So for our last day in Tokyo we decided to go to the more modern district which is around the Shibuya station stop. We had a bit of a chilled morning packing up our stuff, sending emails and so on and then headed to the nearby grocery store to get some breakies and a small gift for Ankit. It's quite difficult trying to decipher the different items in the supermarket so we settled for a smoothie, iced coffee, raisin roll and egg and bacon roll. We grabbed some choc chip cookies ...

A little bit of wee came out when I woke up this morning... ok, mainly because I was dying for the toilet but also cos I knew we were heading to Disneyland today! yay! OK, so I'd been to Tokyo Disneyland when we were here last year, but by god it's exciting.
