10 Days In Tokyo (Part III)

December 28, 2009

Back to ’10 Days In Tokyo’.

The 6th day in Tokyo was spent in Kamakura.

The takopachi sold at Gindaco are considered one of the best in the area.

And F.Y.I, there’s an outlet in Ion, Singapore.

But I haven’t gotten the chance to try it.

There’s this shop selling Japanese animation collectibles.

Totoro, spirits from Princess Mononoke, and Ponyo.

And there’s the snacking while walking around part.

The thing in Japan is that, you don’t really see people eating while walking.

Because it is seen as bad manners.

But who cares!!

We went to Tsurugaoka Hachiman- gū.

It’s the most important Shinto shrine in Kamakura

You can see from the photos the change in seasons.

From autumn to winter yet- to- come.

Autumn leaf, the hand- washing procedure that we have done so many times, one of the many squirrels that you see running around, and the place where we buy our good luck charms.

And here comes lunch and dinner.

Day 7

Day 7 was spent with mum, as Min and Eve went to meet their friends who happened to also be Arashi- siaos.

The two of us explored the shopping areas in Ikebukuro.

Loads and loads of yummy looking food.

And the cakes look so pretty!!!

Day 8

Day 8 was spent in Shibuya.

Went to Tower Records.

It’s this 9 storey building where they sell whole loads of cds, and books.

Went for tea at L’Occitane.

Yes, the L’Occitane that sells skin care products.

And I recently found out that they do not have L’Occitane cafes in Singapore.


Grilled cheese sandwiches were delightful.

And we spent the afternoon looking at people crossing Shibuya Crossing.

Went to shop at 109.

Love those two lugage bags in the photo.

Wanted to get them really badly.

But it would really hurt if I were to get a dent or scratches on the case.

And guess who got the乌龟王八 ticket?
