We woke up, went to Krispy Kreme and then to a department store called Tokyo Hands that sells anything you could possibly think of. Jacki wanted everything. Tokyo's super expensive though. After that we went to a huge park and walked around there for a while. I found the first cherry blossoms of the season.
We got soba noodles for lunch. As crazy as it sounds, we couldn't handle any more fish.
Then we headed back into town and got tickets to the kabuki theater. While waiting for the show to start we went to a toy store to try and find legos for Todd, but had no luck. They had some fun toys though and I got to play a Japanese kid in slot cars.
On the way back to our hotel the subway was absolutely packed. I'm not sure why since it was well after rush hour. My nose itched and it took me a few minutes to find a way to get my hand up to my face we were crammed in so tight.
Thats about it for today!
Jacki side note: seriously there are so many cute things to buy. I've had to practice great restraint every day so far. Bright super fun colors and everything is cartoon-y. ADORABLE. I heard Michael Jackson in elevator music midi- mode at least 4 times. And you will see people in suits and really nice outfits and designer coats wearing SARS masks....still haven't gotten used to that yet. And on that note, the women are all very put together heels, skirts, scarves, jewelry, just an overall very feminine look....which makes me feel like a bum, but hey what can you do. We grabbed Starbucks this afternoon too. I got a caramel macchiato and Eric got a latte.....didn't taste like back home though....I think they forgot to add the high fructose corn syrup. :)
