...Guess who forgot to write the Tokyo trip post?
So, to begin~ David and I went to Tokyo for our Obon Week vacation. It was really nice to get away and we always like Tokyo, so wooo! We took the shinkansen there and back, so we didn't spend much time in transit. We ended up in a hotel near-ish to Disney. The hotel offered a shuttle there and back, so that was a perk. We ended up getting into Tokyo way too early, so we dropped out bags at the hotel and decided to go out and do some exploring.
We decided that we'd do Odaiba that day~ It has the Giant Gundam after all and David was like little kid, he was so eager to see it. It was cute~~ We took the Tokyo Monorail out to Odaiba. It actually doesn't stop IN Odaiba, but it's a nice way to see the bay area and whatnot, so we took it anyway. It also had a massive banner with Arashi advertising something. (Nino didn't make it into the photo for some reason. P: Oh well~)
The next day, Tuesday, we had decided to go to Tokyo Tower and then see what happened from there. We got the special Go-All-the-Way-to-the-Top tickets and up we went. Sooo many people~! It was insane! But, the view was just as nice as the last time~ Even better, actually, since it was a sunny day! David really enjoyed the view. It was kinda cute watching him walk across the glass floor tiles. He got a little nervous. And then there's me, just plodding across it like it's nothing. It was awesome.
The plan after Artnia was to head to Ikspiari and hang out~ Ikspiari is basically the Downtown Disney of Japan. Lots of fancy shops and restaurants and it's located right there, so it's a nice place to do shopping if you have time. They also have a movie theatre, which explains the Star Trek movie posters we kept passing. I was only really interested in one poster, though~
