This time we didn’t plan to go to Tokyo that often. We’ll only go there for two days of this trip and the rest of the time will be spend at home and in the area. That meant we’ll go out with Tora a lot and he’ll get out a lot more than usual.Walking around the neighborhood I found a lot of interesting spots for taking pictures. I only had my phone but I’m sure that if I find the time again then I’ll bring my camera and take a few more pictures there. The lack of coffee started to show so we decided to get some at 7/11, in Japan you can also buy hot drinks from the shelf. Super convenient! Too bad it didn’t taste that good, very weak and watery. Guess we’re too spoiled from our coffee machines and beans we have in Taiwan. Luckily we came across a real cafe and got something with a bit more taste.
Awoken by the hot, black liquid we walked towards a second hand store. Though store doesn’t really cut it because it’s so huge and houses basically everything that people might want to buy in a used condition. Furniture, books, clothes, electronics, music instruments, and model cars or trains. If you’re looking to make a good deal then come here after the weekend when everyone brought their unwanted stuff here and walk home with something nice for little money.
In the evening we shopped a bit for groceries and I found a German product in the store. I don’t know why they’d import it instead of using a Japanese brand. It’s not like this is a famous German product or that it has any special flavor. I wonder if Japanese think the same about the products that we import?
In addition to that I noticed how many Star Wars related products exist here. I’ve seen various snacks, stationary items, and clothes. Now I’ve found an English to Japanese dictionary in Star Wars design, is it going too far?
Of course we also spent time inside and we enjoyed Netflix a lot. It’s our time off and we don’t have to think about business everyday. We finished all three seasons of Sherlock (I watched the special in the cinema in Taiwan), just to find out that season 4 will not be released until 2017! That’s insane…good thing that Netflix has a lot more to offer.
