This morning I find out our friend, Doug, will be coming to visit us tomorrow in Tokyo and he will stay at our hostel for a day or two. Also, a rider friend from one of the websites I was corresponding with in Tokyo for help with my bike, is meeting us in Shibuya friday to take us for a traditional Japanese dinner and show us around.
This afternoon we went to Ropangi for Steve’s knife fetish. It was very cool. After we spent some time wanting every knife in the place, we stopped off at Aki Hibara, electric city. This is like one square mile of all the electronic state of the art arcades, equipment, and devices. I also had fried octopus balls for a snack. They were delicious and I didn’t even know octopus had balls. Silly japanese.
Tonight, I ate a great soba noodle dish you dip in a meat broth. And then had ice cream waffle sandwich with oreo crust in the middle and fusge on the inside of the waffle. Yes, desserts here rock and I might develop a buddha belly eating my way through japan over the next few months. Anyway, this blog was pretty much food related. The other stuff today was cool too. 🙂
Sorry to say the japanese mosquitos finally found me and ninja bit me. My skills were not as god and they were too fast. Wo eye knee
