My car is at the mechanics so hopefully my car will be good as new by this evening. Fingers crossed!
Today’s challenge ties in with a post I wanted to do so it should be easy!
As you know, I will be heading to Japan for 16 days from the end of June-mid July. How exciting. Since it isn’t somewhere I can go whenever I feel like it and there’s so much to do when we’re there I’ve made a list. Here are some of the places I want to go while we are there:
1. Yoyogi Park.
Why? A lot of NicoNicoDouga dance videos are taken there so I’m hoping if I go I will see some of the dancers doing their thing in person. On Sundays there are a lot of bands etc head to yoyogi park so it seems like a fun place to go.
2.Shitamachi Tanabata Matsuri
It happens on the week of Tanabata which is July 7. At the weekend, many food stands open and events happen.
0. at Ueno Station
1. walk east (5 min.) Kappabashi street
Apparently the food at the stalls will be cheap so I can try lots of food for good prices here while watching parades and stuff. I might even write a wish on the paper and tie it up.
I want to have a look around and also there’s a shopping street there with lots of cool stuff. I want to try the taiyaki there…and the dango.
4. This place
Everything about it just seems so Japanese that I have to go. No matter what. Oh and there’s lots of food there too.
5. Tokyo Skytree
I know it will most likely be packed but I want to go and see the view from the top. Whether or not I would have the guts to walk on the glass panels is another story.
I want to see all the shops for anime and the maid cafés etc.
7. Nakano Broadway
Shopping and the guys will be able to enjoy it too.
That’s all the places I can think of for now. Some of them are all close together so maybe we can spend a day going to a few of the places. We will probably spend a couple of days in Akihabara to see everything as well. Let’s just hope that we have enough money and time to do everything we want to do.
