Met my good friend in Tokyo 7/29

One of my best moment in Tokyo, was meeting my friend Genta. While I was visiting Waseda University, I got a message from Genta.  That was surprise because I thought he could be busy, but he made his time for me!  I really appreciated that!  Genta is my friend from United States, and we had not met for very long time until last year when he visited Hong Kong.

It was a great catch up, and this time I had shown up on his own town, so he was giving me a small tour of Tokyo.  We went to a fancy restaurant for dinner, then he showed some local bars in Tokyo to play dart games.  I would say that I was pretty good with dart game (haha) because that was my first time playing.  It was very fun.

It was a very great evening.  I am not the kind of person that will look up old friends and chat online, and also not that proactive, but I really enjoy the moment meeting old friends face to face.  That is what I treasure most.  I am so glad that I got many good friends, and I wish I could meet all of them again even if we are apart by distance.

To all my friends, GUYS and GALS, I don’t talk to you does not mean that I forget.  You all always in my heart, and looking forward to meet all of you again in the future. 🙂   (very cheesy :P)

National Art Center Tokyo 7/29

After Waseda University, I decided to go to The National Art Center Tokyo.   

There were couple exhibitions, and I chose the “ANIMATION * GAME * COMIC” exhibition.  I could not take picture inside the exhibition, but it was very inspiring.  For example, there were a video showing that how to added a Monster in a comic called “Gantz“.  It was very amazing to see all the procedures for making that into just one column in the book.

For people like art and Japanese culture, or want a relax moment in Tokyo, this is a very nice place to visit.

Waseda University 7/29

 

One of my mission for this trip was visiting Waseda University.  I met someone from Waseda University 10 years ago, and at that time I already wanted to visit Waseda.  My life has go through a lot of things, but as I said, finally I came here after 10 years.

First, I took a local train because the station to Waseda was very close to my place I stayed.  it only took me about 10 minutes to get to Waseda Station.

Waseda University is a very lovely college.  I kinda loved it.  There were couple museums on campus.  One of the museum was a very old building, and every step I put my foot on the floor, a very loud “wood” sound would come out.  I had to walk carefully since I did not want to make too much sound (but then later a big group of visitors here, so noise was covered 🙂 )  It was a lovely building.

I am sure I will visit Waseda University again if I will go to Tokyo.  I love the academic environment and feeling toward me around it.    I also hope that I will see my friend if possible, but already lost contact for 10 years.. LOL

Tokyo Sunshine City 7/28

After a long rest, I went to Sunshine City at Ikebukuro.  It took me about 20 minutes from the place I stayed, and I passed by the Coin Museum.   However, I was kinda lost to see if there anything interesting except aquarium at Sunshine City.  I remember I read some interesting place to visit from a tour book, but the place was quite big, and I could not find it.. (until later I got home that I found out I wanted to visit J-world over there)

I ended up shopping at Tokyu Hands.  It was a very amazing for me as I end up bought a lot of things.

Dinner was sushi, which one of the reason I love Japan.  I really love sushi.  Only about 3000 Yen for 13 pc of sushi and beer, but if I added 1000 yen more, I could have all you can eat sushi buffer (now I kinda regret that I did not get sushi buffet because I did not eat that much sushi during the trip)

Tokyo Jul 28

Arrived Tokyo last night.  It was quite late by the time I checked in to the Hotel.  I stayed in Tokyo JAL Haneda Hotel.   Quite nice and it is very closed to airport, but I only stayed for one night (actually less than 10 hrs)

My first meal in Japan was at Sukiya.  A unagi beef bowl for only 1000 Yen.


After that, took a very long ride to my AirBnB host at 池袋.  This is my very first time experience for AirBnb.  The host had to work around 2 p.m., but fortunately I met her before she left.  I took some picture of her place.  Just a sofa bed in the living room, but it is a very nice feeling of home and decoration.  Only thing is if you need to work, then there is no table. I have to code on the sofa bed.  Beside that, I am easy going and have no complaint.    It is ok la… for only about 300 HKD a night which is also located in very convenient location.  Only couple minute walks from the train station.

  

 

Now it is 3:54 p.m.  at 4, I will walk to Sunshine city and take more pictures. 🙂
