Summer: Aug 18〜19

Will have to divide this over several entries. Been quite busy (enjoying the last of the summer days) these past couple of weeks, with little time to update here.

So, here we go - starting with the weekend 14 days ago. (Picture heavy)

August 18

Mainly spent the day in Yoyogi park :) Always lots to see there on a Sunday with nice weather.

Greasers

Looked so hot dancing around like that though (*_*) (Bad heatwave in Tokyo this month)

Someone were playing drums and dancing to that nearby too:

August 19

I had been wanting to visit Sky Tree for a while, and actually had plans to go quite some time back, but in the end wasn't able to go there at the time. So this was my first time up close! :D

Great weather, don't think the view can get too much clearer with a big city like this.

Lots of people there despite it being early on a Monday, so we had some time to spare after picking up our tickets. Used it to explore Soramachi, a huge maze of various stores, restaurants, an aquarium, etc. around the base of the tower.

They had a bunch of various goods with this theme, lol ↓ But why.....

Finally our allotted time came around!

Definitely not alone... In line for the elevators:

Couldn't take pics inside the elevator, but it was pretty! Four of them, each themed with a season of the year. We rode the sakura-clad spring elevator up, and the leafy autumn one back down later.

The city:

I live somewhere off in the distance of the first picture (if I remember the directions correctly). Vast city. Will never be able to explore all of it.

They had a neat interactive map, showing historical facts, night views, zoom, etc.

The ice creams in the tower cafe were cute (^o^)

There were three levels/floors on the observation deck. On the lower level part of the floor was seethrough!

After finishing our city viewing, we walked over to Kappabashi dori. The place is famous for being full of stores supplying restaurants with various stuff. Including fake foods for display:

And some seemingly random stores...

I want the raptor x)

And of course, there were also a few kappa around.

And other stuff

↑building art.

Was nice to do some sightseeing-ish stuff, even if it was just within the city :)

Will continue in another journal entry.

Why is kappa such a big part of this particular street? Did they simply adopt the creature because the place name 合羽 is pronounced the same as 河童?

First time I was there, but it was nice :) Want to go back and look for stuff once I move into a place with a bigger kitchen.
