Japan Day 1

Big pup and I decided to visit Japan for an impromptu trip before I moved away to Seattle and started my new job.  Its a chance for us to have one last super big adventure.

Flight wasn’t so bad.  Found some sleeping pills in my duffle bag from my last trip so spent most of the flight passed out.  Woke up for meal service.  Chicken teriyaki with rice and this weird multi-grain salad:

Pretty delicious.  The photos don’t do it justice.

This was my first time flying through Narita airport.  A little older than Haneda, but not bad…  Had some trouble getting through with “my husband.”  I forgot that our marriage isn’t recognized here.  Or maybe they require a customs form for every adult.  Hmm.


Took the airport express train to Tokyo, then transferred to Akihabara.  Finally got to our hotel at 5pm.

It’s quite a bit bigger than I expected.  My last hotel room at Akihabara combined the shower and toilet into one…this at least breaks those apart.

Walked around for a bit exploring Akihabara.  Had some wonderful sushi, melon bread, and these cheese pastries.  Ended the evening at the Tokyo Station Pokemon Center.  Just a preview of the mega Pokemon center I’ll be taking big pup to.

Have an early morning tomorrow.  Bedtime.
