Japan – Another Day one…

Japan 2001-2

As it turns out my brain is a bit muddled (no surprise there) So my “day-one-that-is-actually-day-two” was the PACKED one…and here is the rest of the “what we did”

We explored a park and a shopping district and ate our first Tempura-in-Japan for lunch, nom nom nommy! I found Tokyo Hands, A BIG lifestyle store with crafts, home stuff, bikes ect. Eight stories all up.. i think. I didn’t shop though. Kept money in my purse until i got an idea of prices, even in Japan i need to feel like I am getting a good deal!

Cyclists were everywhere here, weaving in and out of pedestrians, without being abused. Some very cool bikes, old ones, new ones fabulous variety of commuter beauties.

In the evening we went to a concert for the Yoshida Brothers, who play the shamisen among other musicians on their instruments. They play classic tunes aswell as rock… it was very entertaining, mostly because i got to see the traditional Japanese music styles intermingled with more modern western stuff. The light show wasn’t bad either.
