Japan | Last Minute Roaming

At 9am I was ripped away from my sleep when “Shy Guys” by Seaway rang from my phone nearly giving me a heart attack. I got ready, preparing for my final day in the country of the rising sun. I am actually pretty excited to go home, because I realised that I do not like Tokyo very much (all the bad things that have happen to me in Japan have happened in Tokyo).

Anyways, first thing in the morning Michelle and I headed of to Shibuya where I visited the Amway Japan HQ and Michelle roamed around and did her own thing. At the Amway HQ, I FaceTimed my parents and showed them around before approaching a stranger and asking them questions about the business. I spent nearly 2 hours in the Amway HQ before I met up with Michelle.

When I met up with Michelle around noon time, both of us went to Shibuya 109 where I did some shopping. Here I bought a book bag I needed in order to distribute weight in my bags. It is not the most fashionable but it will serve its purpose! Which is, fit stuff. Also in Shibuya 109 I found some more cute clothes and the best engrish shirt ever. I also saw a luggage I really wanted but knew I did not need it and it was out of my price range too…(maybe next time).

Then we had lunch in Shibuya 109, a cafe called ‘cafe Ma Maison’ and there I ate Lady Ramen and it was super yummy and it had eggplant in it~ It was supposedly with pork broth but I did not taste the pork at all and it made me really happy.

Once we had our bellies filled with Lady Ramen, I tried to take Michelle to the Disney Store and got lost…twice…but we found our way in the end and that is all that matters. I wish all Disney Stores in the states were as lovely and cute as the one in Shibuya.

Afterwards, we went to the Tokyo Metropolitan Building in Shinjuku and went up to the observatory deck in order to get a glimpse at the city line of Tokyo. I was looking at seeing the tip of Mt. Fuji…but just like Tokyo Tower and Sky Tree it was cloudy and I was unable to see Mt.Fuji! I better see it next year when I come back or else I will be beyond upset. Why won’t Mt.Fuji show itself to me? All I want to do is appreciate it’s white tip beauty.

By this time my feet were dying and we were both really tired so we decided to go back to the hotel for an hour rest. When we arrived to the hotel I distributed things into my new book bag and now the luggage that was over 50 pounds is now right on the 50 mark! Yay me! (But now I have more bags to carry…boo.)

After our power recovery Michelle and I headed to Akihabara, because Michelle wanted to buy some anime stuff from her favorite anime. While she did find what she was looking for I found a CardCaptor Sakura folder that included both Sakura and Shaoran. (I have so many folders now…what am I going to do with them all?)

Since we got to Akihabara a bit late, most stores were closing so we did not really roam into many stores, but I did find an amiiboo (I am a great sister), I actually found two today! Then we entered a department store where we spent some time trying Japanese massage chairs, which by the way, are one of the greatest inventions in the world. I am honestly considering investing the 4.000 dollars in one in the far future. That massage made me feel so relaxed afterwards, that my feet nor my back no longer ached. Bless Japanese tech.

Then we returned to the hotel where we watch anime on the teli, and I came to realize how much my listening skills have improved. (While snaking on tea and grape ice cream) I understood a whole episode of Sailor Moon Crystal without subtitles (and I have seen the episode before…so I knew what was going on…but that is beside the point!). I also finished putting the final things in my luggage so I have them prepared when I return to the room at noon.

Michelle is going to help me with my luggage. She is going to the main Tokyo Station with me so I can board that train that takes me to Narita airport so I can catch my flight at 4pm.

Tomorrow morning we will going to eat breakfast at the famous fish market where they hold the tuna auction, but we will not be attending the auction. We will be going around 8. Meaning that we should be getting around 7 so we can figure out how to get there in one piece. And with my great sense of direction we are very likely to get lost.

Earlier today while I texting Mika she told me that I should not return back to Miami because Kyoto was my new home and my heart broke. She even used the grammar for returning home, rather than just returning, and it made my heart turn into mush. She even offered to house me forever, which I thought was really sweet. Being 13 hours apart is going to be so heartbreaking and difficult, but I will fight to maintain all these wonderful relationships I was
able to obtain while I was here in Japan.
