Tokyo Summer Trip = DAY 10 & 11 =
To make up for this, my boyfriend and me went shopping in the 109 and around Shibuya. Then we ate at Mos Burger (my favourite) and UDON <3 and we also went to see SUPER 8 at a cinema in shibuya.
It was so hard to find this cinema because there are so many different cinemas in Shibuya. Nobody was able to indicate the right adress. Hopefully I had an access to internet to situate it. My advice : print a map if you need to find anything in Shibuya. It's such a labyrinth and nobody is able to help even for famous place such as Tokyu Hands and Plaza.
My review on the film : the movie itself was cool, not the best but something cool to watch when you're in japan I guess =) and the cinema was very well located, in the centre of shibuya, at the end of a huge building (so you can admire the view while in the elevator). The screen was big enough (nothing very special) and poeple didnt SPEAK during the movie ! I like it ! But my boyfriend was the only one then to do loud noise compared to japanese people hahaha ! What I like: the seats are numbered, so you can chose when you buy yours, so if you can in advance it's worthy =) What I dont like : the floor is flat, not slopped as the swiss cinemas. So if you have a tall person in front of you, it will bother !
On the 11th day we went to the Imperial Palace Garden and walked a little bit there. I also found a SANRIO Gift Gate in the middle of nowhere (in a lost and small mall center). There were selling luxurious HELLO KITTY decos made with Swarovski Elements and also Flower Bouquets with Hello Kitty shaped in it.
After dinner, they wanted to sit near Hachiko for a while, only to watch people walking there. I was puzzled by this idea first, but then I found that quite funny. It seems that many people like to do that. It's such a waste of time but when you're in Japan, this is an interesting way to spend spare hours. You can look at japanese street fashion and....look at japanese people itself. hahahaha
