Last Days in Tokyo | Japan Series Part V

Fumi and Charlotte posing in front of the cutest shop!

Hiya guys! How are you all? I’ve decided to put last days in Tokyo into one post. Apart from my research I did do quite a bit of shopping and catching up and not so much of sightseeing so I decided to make this just a bit of a short and sweet photo blog of the few things I took pictures of before jumping on the Shinkansen to Kyoto and Hiroshima.

Since this was a third time in Tokyo we decided to venture into more unknown territory and just visit some neighbourhoods we hadn’t been before. Lots of walking and enjoying the sun. At night we enjoyed some Yakiniku in a semi-dodgy but lovely place somewhere on a first floor in Shinjuku.

We later visited the Museum of Modern Art Tokyo, which quite frankly is up there in my top 5 of museums. I really, really, like that place. Didn’t make any pictures, I just enjoyed my time there. After a week in Tokyo and doing my research I was kind of into a little time off. So after the museum we ventured into the Kinatomaru park. A lovely park next to the Budokan, that has a forest-y area with a stream (that also has lots of big spiders – eek!).

Afterwards we visited a little crazy cat cafe in Shibuya. Because you kind of need to visit some crazy cafe when in Tokyo, right? Other options were the Gundam Wing cafe (which I’d totally want to visit next time) a maid cafe (which still does seem a bit weird to me) or Moomin cafe (I still can’t believe we decided to not go – but now I’ll just have to do that next time – right?).

Later we got upto meeting Fumi and Fumi’s dad from Hiroshima, who would later that week meet again in Hiroshima. They’re to most kindhearted, polite and hospitable people in the universe I’m sure. But just before that enjoyed some frappe’s from Godiva. They are so good!

I don’t quite know if this was exactly in order of our days, since everything in Tokyo after visiting Yasukuni for the first time seems a bit of a blur. Staying up late to work on my research, and getting up early to venture into Tokyo sure made me sleepy. After this is my day in Kyoto where I met my long-time internet friend Yuka for the first time in real life. But more on that next time.

Be good, stay safe! I hope Easter was lovely for you, and until soon~!

    I went to Tokyo last year. I loved it!! I didn’t go to any museum but i did a cat café and i liked it a lot even though i though it was a bit too much for the cats.
    You’re so lucky that you will see some other cities and that you will take the Shinkansen!!

    Oh these look relaxing and nice. I would love to visit a Gundam Wing cafe!! Looking forward to your pictures in Kyoto and Hiroshima, hope you had a good Easter x

    • Working on it! Thanks Eliza!!

  • Stephanie Louise

    So much nostalgia again! I will so use you blog posts for ideas when I visit Japan in the future Louise :)

  • I love seeing photos of places I would like to go. With Piri’s health and age, Yangkyu and I decided to hold off travels that would require weeks away from Piri. I still wish we had gone last October and I get a twinge of slight regret but also realize all the gains I had in my life for not going. So I enjoy seeing all these beautiful shots and summaries from people who went and hopefully one day I will as well!

  • I could listen to your stories of Japan for ever, keep them coming.

    Buckets & Spades

  • Glad you got some downtime between all that research! I would love to visit all the themed cafes there, haha.

  • Such a cute trip! The cat cafe looks really cool with the couches and stuff :) xx

  • I’m so happy that every time I’m back, you and your blog are still as lovely as ever. Sorry I haven’t been around, I’ve really missed you. I am loving your photos as always, especially the one of the cat cafe. Can’t wait for next time hehe x

    • I must also add that I am seriously loving this blog layout! A+++++++++++

      • Oh yay! Thanks a bunch!

  • So many great places you visited! I’ve been stalking your Japan posts but haven’t been able to properly comment. Moomin cafe! That’s definitely something I must add to my wishlist of Japan :) We hesitated about the cat cafe because they look so cute (and well a must) but we finally decided against because we were already missing Juno too much. The forest looks amazing! Kyoto and Hiroshima next, can’t wait! :) – Btw, I have been obsessed with the Watermelon video and song since you posted it, I have sent it to my friends that went with us to Wales, it’s too awesome :) I kind of regret not buying a watermelon to take a picture while we were there, ha! :)

    • This is SUCH a late reply to your comment, but I must say this is one of the best (!) comments I’ve ever had on my blog. Thank you so much :)
