... making kits and accessories for the girls then we split up so Anna can explore on her own. Lily and Amy continue their shared travels over some super creamy ice creams and through more charming stores.
The 100 Yen store loads up our souvenir bin with more goodies including erasers for Lily.
We all meet up at the McDonalds and snap some classic photos at the top of the street then walk back for Italian lunch. Once more, ordering plain spaghetti ...
... the electric trains, in front of shouting and screaming kids who bang on the windows, you've got my fullest respect.
So all in all it was a day of mixed surprises. Something positive, something negative. Let's just say that it keeps things interesting for me here. Next planned activity: attending a sumo tournament! Strange how Japanese culture can stretch from little trees to enormous wrestlers. I strongly doubt that that it will be disappointing!
... Hayao Miyazaki thought up the story in the first place. Cool place! We wandered around for a while, saw some beautiful scenerys and then wandered off a bit in the city. It was very nice to have some silence around you for once; Tokyo is great but usually loud and full of people. Done, we got back to Tokyo, reviewed some kanji ...

The photo sessions have begun before even entering the reception/ gift shop area. Potted plants, bushes ...
... plan was to have a meal at the shopping center.

Meal time first ! Katsudon ! Really good ... there is a salad with some tofu. Still not fan of tofu, but at least I can eat it more often than before.
Yes, there is a picture of the toilets... I found that too classy. Chairs available in front of the mirror, never seen that at least ...
