Asakusa is really famous for education-related omamori, especially for passing entrance examinations at big universities, so you can imagine the crowds at the temple.
We made another stop at Ikebukuro, which was a good idea because we managed to catch the tail end of Tokyu Hands Ikebukuro’s Cat Festival — where a lot of independent creators and small ateliers made catcentric merch that was like catnip for me ❤
Too much rich food over the past couple of days made me crave something a bit simpler — so gyudon it was for lunch. Not Yoshinoya though, because there are so many better options in Tokyo, like Matsuya or Sukiya ^^;;
The rest of the day was spent noshing on doughnuts, takoyaki, and every possible kind of chicken dish they have come up with in Hokkaido. I can already feel my waistline expanding
This little shopping trip was pretty easy to conceal because we can just pretend that we got the drinks from a convenience store, and hide the gashapon toys in our pockets — sneaky sneaky 8D
The best part? It’s all on the company tab HUEHUEHUEHUE 8D
While traveling to Japan for work sounds like a lot of fun, it’s really a lot of stress and I don’t want to do it too often that it kills the joy out of going to Japan on holiday 😀
With our holiday drawing very quickly to a close, it was time to get the rest of our itinerary done as quickly as possible.
Girls will be girls, and one of the best things about Harajuku is the shopping!
We are delighted to announce that — in another first for the Japanese pop culture in the Philippines, we at magnetic-rose.net are attending AnimeJapan 2015 in Tokyo!
The musical is slated to run from the 5th to the 23rd of September in Tokyo’s Roppongi Blue Theater, and from the 2nd to the 5th of October in Osaka’s Namba Theatre Drama City.
