Sorry, was too tired to post last night. ^^; But since it’s early morning and we’re waiting for shops to open, I shall do yesterday’s now. :3
A couple sisters took us to Odaiba for pretty much the entire day. To get to Odaiba, we had to go to Shimbashi station (Ginza) and then transfer to another line. It was quite a trip; the train was like.. a monorail? Took us all around the city, above it, so we could see plenty from our seats. Once off the train, we just explored the area. There was a cat shop (with a cafe JUST FOR CATS!), and this interesting area that was just like, 15 booths of different types of ramen. We passed the ramen on the way to Fuji Island (the photo above), which was just everything on Fuji TV (and I mean EVERYTHING…which also meant Dragonball and One Piece, the only things Adriell and I could recognize. :P)
The most interesting place was definitely this shopping centre called “Decks”. It was a bit of a confusing layout, but there was a normal Japanese shopping mall which had like, a Sony science centre on the 5th floor (not bad considering its size, but not as great as the museum we went to the other day) and a wedding place at the very top (which we peeked into and got sent away for haha).
In another building was three sections: The bottom-most section was called “Muscle Park”; it had like …. everything sports/challenges. Kicking soccer balls into huge cards which you had to knock down, throwing a frisbee into a tiny hole, and it had “Sasuke”, one of those ninja-testing grounds. ;P All sorts of stuff, really.
Above Muscle Park was a section devoted to and built like old Japan. It was seriously transport back into time; there were no windows or anything, so it was verrrry easy to get lost in there. All sorts of candy shops, old-school arcades and stuff. It was very lively. There was even a stag-beetle fighting competition! Gross.
Above the old Japan area (no idea what it’s called; should have grabbed a pamphlet for the names…!) was a Chinese area. Built like China, looked like China, food like China. Except the food wasn’t really that Chinese…just Japanese with a bit of a twist, really, haha. Had dumplings and noodles there for dinner.
After we explored those places and had dinner, we went outside to see Tokyo by night and some cool illumination show; it was basically a fountain that sprayed out a sheet of water foam, and a projector that projected an image onto it. Quite nifty..until we saw some images that looked suspiciously like the mac screensaver… lol. My bro and I were chuckling so hard that we were probably destroying the moment for the romantic couples next to us. We make poor neighbors in Japan… ^^; Will be devoting a separate post of pictures for the Decks, as well as a bunch of night scenes which I took.
Anyway, that was about it for the day. We were all exhausted at the end of the day. ^^;
