DAY 04 - Bandai Museum at Matsudo
We went around Ningyocho (人形町）for our early morning walk. Ningyocho was a rather quiet CBD area in tokyo. Several eateries like Matsuya and yoshinoya open 24 hours tho... Saw a starbucks and macs too. We almost devised a plan to take down that shinobi poster tonite >:)
We went to Matsuya to settle our breakfast. Matsuya is something like yoshinoya. We ordered the breakfast set meal costing abt 650 yen i think. The set consists of rice, ham and sunny-side up egg, salad, seaweed, and a cold porridge side dish (i think it's porridge...taste like porridge...hmmm). Here's me smiling idiotically with my breakfast :)
We headed for Ueno （上野）Station first thing in the morning. And changed to the Joban (常舨腺）Line to Matsudo (松户）Station. There we went to the Bandai Museum. Bandai (万代）is the largest toy manufacturer in Japan, responsible for making those Ultraman, power rangers and sailor moon cartoons/toys. The museum is split up to 8 floors. We gonna go to the Character World (Ultraman, Power rangers,godzilla) museum and the Gundam Museum. They showcase toys from the 1980s to the present. Which brought back some nostalgia for people going there. We keep saying "hey i played this before when i was young!" Ahh, bring back memories :)
Here we posed some pictures with the life sized super heros and heroines. The gundam musuem had a big gundam robot head replica that actually moves and eyes glow!
HARAJUKU - Bridge to Yoyogi Park
Since it was a Sunday, many gothic lolitas and maid cosplayers were there to have their photos taken with interested gaijins (foreigners). We spotted 2 caucasian punk cosplayers too :) Quite an interesting scene there. I always like gothic lolita style dressing and i thought they all looked pretty cool. Oh yea we didn't go into yoyogi park...no time no time :)
Shibuya is quite near Harajuku. As we walked along harajuku, we see many clothes botiques and fashion stores. Very hip. It's like a big orchard road, except there were more people...more beautiful people imho :)
This place is called Kiddy Land, it has 5 levels of toys from sanrio to disney to pokemon to air-guns. It's really a Kiddy Land!
Night at shibuya and we went to a japanese sushi restaurant to try the sushi. I tried the most expensive ones....like big toro (belly of tuna),medium toro, salmon sushi, real crab meat sushi and one clam/oyster sushi... one slice arnd 300 yen...ex but worth it! Tastes heavenly!Especially the toro meat, so butterly smooth and melts in ur mouth~! definitely > sakae sushi :)
