On the second day was a trip to Shimokitazawa. The purpose was to see some festival. I am not sure if we missed the majority of it but the all we really saw was a parade down the street. We also saw something very strange, a grown man dressed in a schoolgirls outfit and a blue wig on a stage singing and dancing and doing alot of strange things. I suppose some context would have helped but you know, still kinda funny to watch. After that the group of people I was either split to go other places and those that remained went to the clothing stores. There are SOOO many clothing stores. I ended up getting a shirt which is really really warm, handy for going out on the cold days with. Also I got to see a supermarket, so far I have only seen Conbini (Convenience Store) After this I went back to Alicia’s and she made a hotpot which was lovely and we watched Totoro.
Okies so officially over flying but hey what can you do. I was surprised by how many people managed to sleep. Fortunately I had Futurama and Family Guy to watch which helped pass the time.
I arrived at Narita airport at 6:03am, and I can’t believe how cold it was. Going from 34 degrees to -6 was not fun. But once I got to the other side of customs things improved as I got my bag and got access to my Jumper.
From there it was up, alot of things I found amazing, like, well everything. They even have a smoking room. I found that amazing. The trip from Narita airport to Shinjuku was kind of long but it was so great. Even going through the industrialised areas which were thick with smog was a sight to behold. Sometimes I would see patches of snow on sides of hill. Going over bridges also yielded some pretty awesome sights.
Shinjuku station was SOOOO busy. I’ve seen some pretty hectic rush hour type things in my day but nothing compared to what I saw today. Outside of the station there is a large screen which has some of the most random things. For lunch me and Alicia went to a store and I had Ramen. Then I slept for a couple of hours and now doing some stuff like dinner and party and Club.
Somewhere amongst this all you have realised that I am in fact a very sad person… Do you want to hear about my cat?
Figure why not put some pictures of my different colour hair… brighten my little corner up a bit.
