Japan Weekend: Part 1

It's been a month since our Japan trip and I'm still not over it. It's the weekend and I promised myself that I will publish the draft entries that I wrote for my blah-g. Let's see if this works!

For our first weekend, we decided to explore Shinjuku and I remember waking up to a lovely weather. The sun is out and I can wear tights. Haha! Perfect! <3 

We passed by Shinjuku Chuo Park walking towards the skyscraper district and decided to check out Tokyo Outside Festival. We spotted adorable kids and of course, pets! 

*hands down*

We made it to the observatory deck of Tokyo Metropolitan Government building and spent almost an hour admiring the view. Admission is free, fyi.

I asked Jim to pose in the same spot where one of his pictures was taken a few years back. I should make a then-and-now photo for this. Haha! 

Oh, just 1 of 564 mirror shots. 

Next stop - Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden for sakura spectacular.  For an admission fee of 200 yen, we got to see beautiful cherry blossom trees and it's easily one of the highlights of our trip. 

Even this cutie can't get enough of sakura!

After a delicious bento meal with strawberry cake for dessert, we met up with Eugene again and he agreed to bring us to 下北沢, Shimokitazawa! I was so happy because I've read so much nice things about this neighborhood thanks to the lovely Hello Sandwich.

A mini Lomomanila reunion, eh? tanamo, eugene17 and dianaplus in the hauz yo! (we have secret lives.....)
I got a very nice (and cheap) dress from this store. Hoohoo!

This is a stolen shot. I swear.....heehee!

Before leaving Shimokita, we spotted GRANIPH! Ahhhhhh! 

We went to Shibuya for dinner and we had a silly Japanese dining experience.

To be continued. Heh! xx
