>>27/02/2014, Thursday, Asakusa / Shibuya
13th day of Honeymoon! Tired us with sleepy faces in the cold~
Its kind of tiring, even thou cool to be on holidays...
And we are already the relax type of tourist who wakes up at 10am!
Our itinerary normal starts with lunch~ lol!
Itinerary of the day, first stop at Tokyo Sky Tree!
There is this beautiful plum tree outside the mascot store at ground level~
Oh hi ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ‼︎
Such a "tourist-ish" photo!
My turn!! Haha, it was... As usual, very cold!!
Tokyo Sky Tree that officially opens in May 2012! Thats very recent!
Is the tallest building in Japan right now~ probably everywhere else too!
It replaces Tokyo Tower as a broadcasting tower for radio & TVs~
Here's our ticket~
We went up to only the main observation deck at 450m up high...
But there really has nothing to see because it's too cloudy :(
And It will not make much difference coming another day because
The weather is just that bad that period of time~
Sora-kara chan! The mascot for Tokyo Skytree~
It was the Valentine's period when we went~
This little pathetic glass floor is... Pathetic.
Seriously, the tokyo tower one is even better! And bigger!
My collection of postcards and special stamps!
Tokyo Skytree edition getto!
Selfie, 450m above the ground!
Heading off very soon...
Off to Sensoji (Asakusa Shrine)~
It a very modern and sleek designed station at the Skytree station.
Underground at the Asakusa Station, we found this small standing sobaya~
And le husband finds it interesting, the vending ticketing order method...
So we settled for some soba!
I had kakiage and a tamago, le husband had something I don't know~
Looks like kamaboko (fish cake) or thin deep fried beancurd?
Either of it, its really good! ^^;
Japan is really a place where I learn new things every trip~
After a good lunch, we came out of the station and walked to the shrine~
Its a good thing le husband is super good at reading maps...
I have never gotten lost if we have a map with us :)
The famous and every tourist will surely visit, Sensoji!
One of it's quieter corner...
We offered some incense 150yen per bundle~
Its said that covering yourself with the incense smoke will bring luck!
Heading out of the shirne...
Some pretty plums along the roadside~
Then we went to Shibuya! Watched the people crossing the junction from far!
And crossed the junctions ourselves too~ haha! Its like j-dramas<3
And I am so impressed by myself~ I bought nothing from Shibuya!
Hohoho! So much self-discipline, cause I am never a shopping person.
I am not a collector nor a fanatic devoter of any big fashion brands~
More like I love fashion but am too cheapo to buy expensive stuffs!
My wallet must be very happy about that *smirks*
That was how my short hours of encounter with Shibuya ended~
Next off, we headed back to Harajuku for some cafe light dinner...
Sandwiches and Pizza Toast~
Set meal comes with a mini garden salad!
Its a cafe in the corner of the Takeshita Dori that we happen to find~
I like the atmosphere there very much<3
And to end the day~ a Strawberry Shortcake with a Ice Milktea!
