Got out of our apartment and went to look for
We have yet to take a tourist shot with Hachiko so nobody really knows we’re in Shibuya. So we took advantage of the not-so-crowded early morning with good lighting.
Was gonna grab onto Hachiko’s leg and be a bro but when I got there, there’s bird shit everywhere. So I’m just grasping onto stone (it’s not easy when you’re not a goat) so that I don’t fall off the ledge.
Don’t know where this was taken but ok!!
We were headed for Mitaka and because I was a lazy ass and found out there’s a line that takes us to Mitaka directly, we took a train towards that direction (bad planning).
We alighted at Mitakadai station!!! 😀 But it was wrong 😀 It has Mitaka in it but it’s not anywhere near where we were going LOL so we’re like total losers waiting for the next train to alight at the next stop. Sorry…
Getting out of Inokashirakoen station was awesome!! It’s a residential area so the surroundings had a very different ambience from the busy cities we were frequenting.
So many petals on the floor!!!! ^___^ There were strong winds every now and then too…
So I was busy filming the ground 🙂 but every time the wind picks up, a plastic bag starts trying to blend in with the petals T_T it doesn’t.
Super cute dog!! Have a video of it chasing the plastic bag hahahaha 😀
THEN THERE WAS A SAKURA WHIRLWIND!!!!!!!!!! ^____^
That Japanese man behind is totally not impressed. Must have had seen it every spring for decades.
Everyone needs to get caught in one at least once in their lifetimes 😀
Students came out from the station and did the same thing #magnesia
Started looking around for breakfast.
It was too early or something, the only shop sort of opened was a florist.
And can I just say $2 for a pot of beautiful blooms is so affordable?????
Retirement plan: move to Japan and build a garden + pond + everything
So there really was nothing other than combini breakfast.
Bought oden and onigiri before walking into Inokashira Park (井の頭恩賜公園).
Very beautiful and relaxing place with very few people around.
It’s so uncrowded that we managed to find a vacant bench on which we had our breakfast.
Benzaiten (弁才天) Shrine
The whole place is really so gorgeous ^__^
Finally found Ghibli Museum and I cry every minute I accept the fact that we didn’t manage to get tickets the day before T_____T
I think everyone knows that I’m a huge Studio Ghibli fan and have watched every film (except My Neighbors The Yamadas) and some of my favourites multiple times.
The amazing rooftop garden with all the Laputa stuff T__T
The décor was so elaborate everywhere and I’m still weeping over this tragedy.
A glimpse of the Laputan robot T_T
Straw Hat Café T__T and the special beer inside (that I wanted to buy to not drink) T___T
Saw people exiting with souvenirs and I remembered that I wanted to buy the Studio Ghibli collection box set if there’s one T___T OMG T______T
The T______T mainly comes from only me because despite repeatedly asking Yuxuan to watch their films she only watched one so she doesn’t really feel the T____T. Good for her I guess… 😦
Even the bus stop sign spoil market.
So we took a bus to Mitaka station.
Circled the area FOR AN HOUR trying to look for a toilet.
It’s something I’m really not proud of. 有钱也不是这样花的 is our motivation to never waste time in Japan but then this toilet thing. Walau…
Found one with a bidet so it’s not that bad. The one below the station was kinda rundown and only had squats!!
After that, we realised we should’ve just tapped in because there are always toilets inside stations -___-
Got this lemon, white peach & apple juice. Their large is our usual small 😦 It tastes quite nice except there’s way too much lemon 😦
Ok, abrupt ending to this post. Day 3 was a really badly-planned day, mainly because we didn’t get tickets to the museum and the itinerary had to be rearranged -___-
Next post would be all about us getting lost everywhere and finding really great dinner 🙂
