Last night we hit up the EA shooting bar for a few drinks and a test of our aim at the rifle range inside the bar. While the guns were all using bb rounds the experience was still outrageous.
While spending apart of the day in Akihabara we took the opportunity to pop into one of the maid cafes for a bite to eat. Upon arrival we were all told we were ‘masters’ and were seated by the girls who took our orders and brang out our food.
The meals were all cute little dishes filled with animals and hearts. Each of us got to pick a maid to have a photo with as a souvenir of the visit.
While the experience was different, it was definately worth the stop.
For the nights entertainment we went to the robot restraunt in Shinjuku and caught up with some family along the way.
If you are in Tokyo you need to check this place out. It will blow your mind. The show was filled with everything you could imagine and more!
Filled with robots shooting smoke and lazerbeams you’ll be on the edge of your seat for the whole show.
After the show we walked down to Omoide Yokocho, better know as memory lane or piss alley, for dinner. Having 10 people seemed to be no issue with finding a place to eat and we were shuffled up the stairs of a small restraunt to eat.
Dinner was filled with different chicken and vegetable skewers and a few beers. Definately want to try have another meal in the area if the chance arises.
Today we got up early to head to Studio Ghibli Museum. Our first train went the wrong way, the second train went the right way and then changed direction and the third train was a charm and set us off in the right direction. Our walk from there took us to a park hidden within the city streets.
After a scenic stroll we ended up at the museum to have the Ghibli experience. Getting tickets for this place requires some pre-planning as they sell out months beforehand but if you can get yout hands on some it is worth it.
After spending the morning exploring the museum we heading over to Shibuya to see the crossing. Taking the chance to grab a photo from the Starbucks Cafe overlooking the street.
Skytree Tower is simply spectacular. Towering above everything in Tokyo and offering a 360 degree view to show you just how beautiful this city is.
Seeing the views just as the sun had gone down we saw a sea of lights. The highlight was the glass floor looking straight down 350m.
Today was the final day in Kyoto and we managed to spend an hour inside the Pokemon Center playing arcade games. With plans to visit another three Centers in Tokyo everyone is excited to go back.
After navigating our way through the station we found ourselves lining up to catch the bullet train to Tokyo. These trains speed is matched by their beauty as they seem to gracefully shoot through the countryside. So far the sights from the window have been filled with a mixture of city streets, green fields and mountains.
If all goes to plan we will be in Tokyo tonight and be ready to take on the big city!
