While planning the itinerary, Eddie reminded me to reserve a couple of days for his shopping. That's part of the reason for Tokyo being our destination, 2 days reserved for theme-parks (boys), 2 days for window-shopping (Eddie), and 2 days or so for sight-seeing (me), it had something for everyone. It's really ridiculous I thought, to spend limited vacation days browsing at shops, but nevermind, have to give and take lah, so zipped my mouth and prepared for a boring day ahead.
First stop though, was still to satisfy my craving, so off to Harajuku for Sushi Kaiten, which eluded me on Day 1. Before going to the restaurant, had to make a stop at, what else, McD lah. Brian's appetite is amazing, when Sean eats fast food, he eats too, then when we have our proper meals, he eats as much as we do too, maybe more.
Boys outside Harajuku's Takeshita Dori McD.
Famous Harajuku crepes, which neither the boys nor Eddie (who has such a sweet tooth) were game to try.
Thanks Monica for the Sushi Kaiten recommendation, we loved it. Even Eddie ate up and he's not a sushi fan. Brian gulped down plates after plates of salmon sushi.
Special 6-piece plate for Y680. Delicious.
The more expensive plates of fatty tuna belly (left) and fattest tuna belly (right). They are for me lah...but I think Brian ate one of each.
I had sesame seed ice-cream, oooh, so good. The rest of the clan stuck to boring chocolate. We ate lots and the bill came to a Y5500 or so, or about S$80, the same amount I spent when I ate at Sushi Tei with Brian and Sean the day after I returned from Tokyo. But sooooo much more satisfying.
Okay, now I kam wan, hokkien for satisfied. My Tokyo trip wouldn't have been complete without checking out Sushi Kaiten. By the way, we didn't have to queue cos we were the first customers! Monica says there can be quite a wait if you go later in the day.
Window-shopped at Harajuku's so-called Champs Elysees, Omotesando (it's not at all like Paris' main shopping street lah). Kids went to Kiddyland and I looked up and saw my favourite value-for-money shop, H&M.
When we got nearer, aisay, not opened yet. When I checked on the net, this H&M shop was due to open Autumn 2008, guess there's a delay. Looks huge!
Didn't buy anything, and headed back to Shinjuku for the rest of Eddie's day.
