The airport! This was actually taken when we were leaving but I thought it'd be nice to start of this post with an airport photo heh.
First stop: Odaiba! This is called the Rainbow Bridge. We had to cross this in order to get to Odaiba. I didn't get to see it but apparently its really pretty at night.
A building which I thought looked really cool. After some googling I found out it was the "Fuji Television Station".
Replica of the Statue of Liberty. I hope to see the real thing one day too!
The famous life-size Gundam! My brother and dad are fans and this was the main purpose of our visit to Odaiba
*epic pose* Looking into the distance...protecting the world
We stopped off at the Gundam Museum. My brother was like my tour guide for the day and naming all the models. I didn't know there were that many!!
I don't know much about the series but I do know that Gundam look fricken badass!
Chibi Gundam models. How cute!
After Odaiba we decided to visit the Skytree! Unfortunately we didn't go in though because tickets were apparently sold out :c
We decided to go and look inside the mall for a bit. Hello Kitty is everywhere in Asia!
There were lots of cool shops in the mall which I didn't manage to capture on camera. However I did get this Rootote Shop! I have a Rootote bag which I got online years ago and I really like there designs so seeing an actual shop made me a little excited hehe.
On a train on the second day of our trip.
We went to Tama New Town...Hello Kitty's Town!
We visited Sanrio Puroland!! (or "Hello Kitty Land" as my parents liked to call it lol) If you want to go somewhere in Japan with on overload of cutest, this is the place to visit!
Interiors of the theme park. Why doesn't the real world look like this?!
Shirousa and Kurousa just hanging
Cute souvenirs! Very expensive so I didn't by anything ( TT~TT )
A show featuring Hello Kitty and Jewelpets. Pretty sure this was aimed for young children but I still wished I could understand what they were saying in Japanese.
After we were done with Sanrio Puroland we decided to head to Shibuya and look around. It was so busy!! I really wanted to shop since it's know for being a fashion center but because site seeing was what my family wanted to mainly do (and stuff in HK is cheap and I'm more familiar with things there) I didn't get anything :'D
Photo with the famous Hachiko
After Shibuya we went back to Shijuku (where our hotel was at) to eat. There were so many restaurants to chose from we had a hard time deciding because all the menus looked equally as good!
The last day in Japan. Because we had to check out our hotel early and our flight was in the evening, we decided pay the Character Street in Tokyo a quick visit. Similar to Sanrio Puroland, this street is another place where cutest is at a very high level.
The map of Tokyo Character Street
And to finish this post off, a picture of Japanese money. The inner nerd inside me comes out when I see money from different countries. It's just so....different. For example, the "doughnut coins" (what my boyfriend likes to call them), they look really cool *geek face*
And that concludes my trip to Japan! It was so short but so sweet ( ; w ; ). I definitely would like to go back again to visit more places; 3 days really wasn't enough! I'd love to visit some of the more historical landmarks in the future. Hopefully one day I can blog about Japan again...
Talking about future, I know I should really get my holiday posts out the way (I still want to post about Hong Kong and I have another holiday haul to do!!) but my next post will be an outfit post since my dude took some pictures for me when I visited him earlier this week.
