Alhamdulillah, this year we managed to visit Tokyo during the cherry blossom season and to sum it up, I've fallen head over heels with Tokyo, and I love the city more than I love Paris. Hahaa!
And what made it more fun was that we had Naurah to entertain us. My little niece and her antics is just so adorable.
During the flight, Naurah was not extremely cranky. She was just anxious and wanted to crawl around but we couldn't allow that. So we had to find various methods to distract her.
The ginormous van that picked us up from the airport to the accommodation. This van can easily sit 10 people or more and there were only 5 of us!
First thing we did when we reached our apartment (booked via AirBnB) was to go to the convenience store. Haha (and this was at 12am at night).
Me being jakun!
The next day, we headed out to explore what Tokyo had to offer.
We stayed on the 9th floor of an apartment building so the view was pretty spectacular. And to top it off, the train station was just across the road made it more convenient.
First train ride!
First stop was Shibuya, and of course the shibuya crossing. I honestly kind of liked the Shibuya area and wished I had more time to explore the place.
It was quite a long walk heading towards our destination from Shibuya. Going uphill and downhill, but I thought it was nice to be able to see smaller neighbourhoods in the middle of Shibuya.
Mama making a pitstop from all the walking.
Our destination was... Meguro River!
We were so happy when we managed to see the cherry blossoms! SubhanAllah cantik sangat :)
Next, we took a bus and headed back to Shibuya.
Tired and hungry faces. We decided to look for those cheap sushi places and found one called Robot Sushi. Most of the plates there costed only 100Yen (excluding tax), and that's pretty cheap for high quality sushi as compared to KL.
They deliver the sushi that you order (using the touch screens) on the metal rod thingy.
Of course we melantak all the salmon and tuna sushi there ever was. Haha
Next, we headed back home and at night, me, my brother and BIL took a walk heading towards Tokyo Tower.
It kinda looks like Eiffel Tower doesn't it?
Next, we went to Akihabara.
Melantak Takoyaki. Sedap!
Not much to see in Akihabara, maybe the locals would know more interesting places to go but since I'm not that much of a gadget or game freak, I wasn't really interested in the shops there.
To be continued!
