Shopping in Japan - the old and the new

A travel blog entry by gothgoes

The wintry weather and Christmasy mood mean I indulge in a rare treat - heading out bedecked in silly Christmas clothes. This has a grand effect on people around us, smiles and shouts of "ooh santa!" follow us everywhere.



We start the day with surprise awesomeness, stopping in at a generic looking coffee place on Kaminarimon …

Museum, maids and moments in heaven

A travel blog entry by gothgoes

One of the many myths about Japan is a fear of the cost - born of the boom years in the 1980s where foolish foreigners could find themselves ripped off for normal luxuries. If you want safe travel, good food and a lot of cheap or free tourism options Tokyo is amazing.



Less than 2 mins walk from our hotel we find Pronto Cafe, …

Travelling round Tokyo!

A travel blog entry by nathanjamie

... knowing what to do. Nathan said kanpaii (cheers) and the couple next to us burst out laughing and started to imitate him, talk about awkward. We then had our 1st experience of noodles from the 7/11. They were actually ok but definitely couldn't have them every day. We then headed to Hamamatsucho to go to Pokemon World!! Nathan was geeking out and spent some time outside trying to battle people but they were clearly too scared to take him on... There were tons of people ...

Japan is confusing / Trip is over :(

A travel blog entry by thamitastouch

... buildings, there are not many skyscrapers. I think I might be in a suburb. Most of the signs for everything are in Japanese and I have no clue what to think. This guy beside me on the plane right now is driving me friggin' batty. Mind the damn armrest and calm down. He is completely fidgety and will not stay still. ARGH!
I keep walking around for a bit and my feet start to hurt. I'm wearing my new shoes and they have not been broken in yet. I wander around ...

Hot Mess

... I didn't embarrass them too much when we were out and about for the rest of the day. From here, we took the train to where the Ghibli Museum is. If you know anything about Hayao Miyazaki or Studio Ghibli, you will know exactly why I was so excited for this. If you don't, you should IMMEDIATELY gather your family and watch (not necessarily in this order) Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle, Kiki's Delivery Service, and My Neighbor Totoro. Make a day of it. You'll be happy you ...

    The rooms are what you want from a Tokyo hotel. Not huge but clean, well appointed and with an amazing location. Mere steps from Asakusa Metro station this is easy to find and in the heart of tourist heaven, where Kaminarimon Dori meets the Nakamise Dori market. Private bathrooms, clean comfortable futon and a great price. Would happily recommend. Make use of the local restaurants and cheap liquor at convenience stores.
