Tokyo, 2016

Now the time had come for Tokyo, this huge metropol of a weird and wonderful city took only seconds to reach from Kyoto thanks to their futurustic space shuttle program Shinkansen. This bullet train will teleport you from one place to another in mere seconds all while giving you the comfort and security the modern man demands.

The first thing we did, and surely what everyone does when first coming to Tokyo eas to eat the countries entire supply of Pocky, the candy on a breadstick thing.

Tokyo is divided into a few districts, visiting them takes about 5000 years so needless to say we try to see at much as possible during our few days there. To make things worse each subway station is like a city in itself, you need a train to get from one end of the station to the next.

We had heard that food on Tokyo was super expensive but I got to say you can really get into some good eatin’ for a cheap buck wiithout a problem. Sure the sushi wasn’t like we are used to but then we didn’t really go to any good sushi places. The noodles however was without a doubt the best in the world.

Besides Japanese for, or what the Japanese call food there also seemed to be a huge Hawaiian theme going on with burgers and umbrella cocktails.

Tokyo might be too big to stroll around in but that sure didn’t stop us from trying. Taking the train to the different districts than walking about for hours on an end. Tokyo sure is a beautiful city and one fun thing we did was seeing it from space.That’s right, we visited Tokyo Skytree in which they had great shows, a great view and ice cream.

Just walking about we randomly walked into street taiko drum concerts with dancing, huge malls, great temples but our lat night was realy the cream of the crop. We decided to take a tour out to one of the cat islands, of course all the cats hid because thousands upon thousands human were walking around the beautiful island in what can only be described as hellish weather conditions, the ice creams cold us down though. Leaving the island we decided to take a stroll again, finding our way to a beach with black sand and small bars along the side. We stayed and had one of the best nights there.
