Day out

Had a day off today, so we enjoyed it by doing nothing useful at all. But had lots of fun with that as well.

We had been planning to take more purikura and visit the vampire cafe in Ginza for a while now. Originally planned to finally do it last week, but something else came up and we had to postpone it. And I'm glad we did, because today the weather had cooled down a lot, making it comfortable to walk around clad in Moitie. (We were kinda dying at the Moi dix Mois lives + THE VELVET instore earlier this summer. Been the warmest summer in Japan ever since they started recording temperatures back in 1800-something).


So we first went off to Harajuku to take some pictures:

     


Some A lot of people seem to think we're a couple. And because we really don't care what they think (It's starting to become pretty amusing, the amount of times people ask about it), here:

  

    




We felt like we should somehow include our tights x) It's the same ones MiMi and BERA use at lives. But it's not all that easy to fit both our legs and heads into the picture so.... lol elegance





After having xx filled croissants and cocoa at a nice little coffee shop nearby, we continued on to the Vampire Cafe in Ginza :D
I had never been there before, but at least the pictures of the place had looked very promising. And I really liked the place! Unfortunately I couldn't take any pics myself, as I only had my cellphone, and it was too dark for the keitai camera. But if you get the chance to go there, I really recommend it. And not only did it look nice, but they had normal sized portions of food. Normally everything is quite expensive at themed restaurants, and you pay for the theme rather than the food (portions being very small). Nice to know there's an exception (And the food was really good too).

As we entered, Satoshi greeted us at the door. He used to be the vocalist of vk band EREMIA, and has done session bands after they stopped their activities. Doing LAREINE covers among other things I always have a lot of fun at his session lives, and wish he'd do more of them. He also likes Moi dix Mois and Art Cube, and we saw him at the live with Yu~ki this summer.
Anyway, I knew he worked there, but really didn't expect him to show up at the door as soon as we entered (He'd been out of town recently, so I don't think I expected him to be there at all today). I think we both had equally surprised looks on our faces ^^;
By chance one of the people at the table next to us was celebrating their birthday today, so Satoshi came and sang "Happy Birthday". Expected even less to get to hear him sing x)

As we were leaving he came over and gave us his card, which looks pretty neat:

  

If you feel like it, go peta him at Vampire Rose :)

Lol at the kisu and suki suki puri ^^; You're both looking really cute !
You know that a certain japanese male (I let u guess who)told me about this couple rumor when he was at my place this summer oO. It made me laugh but he seemed to really believe it with all his faith so I didn't dare ruining his fantasy ^^;

The Vampire cafe is such a great place and the food is really nice ! Went there back in 2007 with Jen, Thomas and Yasuko after V'first concert. I loved the coffin in the middle of the place with all those candles and wax on the top as well as the bathroom (or am I getting confused with the Shitsuji café in ikebukuro ??)! Definitly a place I'd like to turn back one day (and hopefully get the same waiter ^^)

lol, the rumour is really traveling the world x) I have no idea why so many people got that idea in the first place (We get emails from random people we don't know even, asking about it o.O And pretty much everyone we meet here, if we're together at the time, ask too.. I don't get it.) But I find it kinda amusing. I'm not even gay. Maybe I should start fangirling more over the bandguys I follow...

Yeah, that sounds like the same restaurant. We should go back there when you come to Tokyo again ^^ (And we should try to time it with the birthday of one of us ;) )

Well I faced the same trouble during high school as I was spending all my time with my childhood friend ^^ Although we never had the slightest affective gesture towards each other it seems the whole school assumed during years that we were going out..moreover our unique male friend was gay XD

It'd be a pleasure to turn back there and yeah in order to celebrate a birthday would be epic ! it's one of my secret wish to attend one of those themed restaurant for a birthday >///< we only get those birthday songs in family restaurant in France so it's quite a different feeling/atmosphere ^^;

Sorry for the delete and repost... my instinct made me press"bonjour Honey" instead of "reply" ^^;;;

*lol* That puri with the big red heart is hilarious!

I'm glad to hear that this was the warmest summer in Japan ever since they started recording temperatures back in 1800-something. I probably experienced the worst I can expect, so it can only get better from now!

I hope Mana's next tour will be in the cooler half of the year next time. 40 degrees makes it slightly difficult to look/feel very elegant etc. ^^;

I could understand if some people asked, but it's like everyone we meet.... We went out with a couple of guy friends recently, and they were all "Do you two kiss and stuff. It's completely ok with us if you do." LOL

btw, we should all take purikura when you join us for lives :) Hopefully Velvet will still be doing the polkadots, so we can do pics with all matching polkadotted outfits. (Unless MiMi does stop with it like he was talking about in his diary last night)

No, we never hold hands XD According to one guy we asked about it, we have an "atmosphere", whatever that means...

But polkadots were REALLY popular last winter and spring. Its popularity just took a break this summer, and now looks like it's returning. In the spring MiMi said the popularity was good because it made it so easy to find clothes. So maybe he just wants a change and uses that as an excuse? I do hope he'll give us a warning though. It'd be embarrassing showing up for the live clad in dots, and then they're suddenly not doing that anymore ^^;

I think your summer is especially bad because of the humidity?
I would melt.

Aww, the pictures are cute. And I can't help but absolutely love your hair colour *adores*

I wonder what you two do that people assume you are a couple. I mean, you would make a cute couple, but that can't be it? Of course, you go visit concerts together and probably meet rather often besides that, too, but isn't that something good friends do as well?

Haha, Satoshi. His bunny is all too cute ♥

This year hasn't felt as humid as earlier summers actually. It's just that we had about two months of constant 35~40 degrees, with no days of rain.

Aww, thanks. I often wish my hair was black just so I could have fun dying it ^^;

I wonder about that too... I don't think we're doing anything? I have other friends I hang out with a lot, including guy friends (The person I hang out with the most is a guy). But somehow people never ask about them.

We were this close to asking him about the bunny, but felt it would be too awkward ^^; It really looked like he wanted to talk, as he stayed by our table after giving us the bill (instead of going away and letting us find the money like they normally do). Eventually going "ehhh, Japanese ok?", gave us his card and asked us to please visit his blog if we were interested.

Shush, putting our private pictures in public, honey.;-D

*LOL*

It was fuuuun! I really enjoy Vampire Café. I think it's my favorite after Christon Café (for obvious reasons) now that the fairy one is gone.

We can go back on my birthday! Then we'll have the special cake/singing, etc.

lol, whatever you say darling

I think this is my new favourite themed restaurant :D
And yeah! But only if Satoshi's working that day. I want private singing from him, not weird medieval guy x) And then you ask about the bunny!

Great pics! The one with cat ears is cute. I love those polka dotted tights. :D

Lol at people asking if you're a couple. I wonder what kind of "atmosphere" would that be. XD

The Vampire Cafe sounds pretty cool! :D

I love purikura :D So stressful and fun at the same time.

Maybe they won't bother asking so often after seeing these pics :p

There are a lot of theme restaurants around that I'd like to visit. But out of the ones I've been to, this is one of the best. Will definitely be going back there.

Hahah, well you guys would make an adorable couple, so I'm not surprised they think so. Though that...probably wasn't what you wanted to hear. xD What cute purikura. *^-^*

Well thanks, but I still don't think it makes sense ^^;

Hahah, sorry. ^-^;; Do you think it could have something to do with "Strange westerners, I wonder if they kiss?"
chounohana
Sep. 19th, 2010 05:55 am (UTC)
Actually, half the people who ask are Westerners themselves...

Maybe you should reward their odd inquiries with responding that yes, you are a couple, but you are actually both crossdressing men. :) Give them way more than they asked for.
