Japan Day 1 (Namja Town)
Because you guys said okay so here's my japan trip entry!!!
Maybe God is rewarding me for all the good deeds I've done :D much thanks to my uber awesome travel partner Cvy for finding the great accommodation!!
We arrived too early to check into our hotel so we went to the Namja Town in the same building. Prepare for a massive photo flood!
Namja Town entrance!
The cat mascot
The ticketing counter. There was some vending machine for selling food coupons. We didn’t try any of it though =(
LIFE SIZED SADAHARU!!! WAHAHAHA
Here’s kawaii Cvy with life size sadaharu!
Entrance to the Spooky Town.
random spooky demon chair near thhe entrance. No, I didn’t try sitting on it
This is a sure sign that the Ladies toilet is down the lane xD
Some tombstone games whereby the tombstones will move o_o
One of the most visually scary instalment >.< A mockup of an abandoned Shinto shrine where the whole ambience will change in a blink of an eye O_O;;; The sound effect and blazing eyes was shocking O_O
But the scariest instalment have got to be this Blo**y H*ll of a store front @#$%&
It looked really harmless and since there was a buzzer button on the counter, I thought '”why not?”. Then we hear a kindly female voice spoke out to us. Because of our lack of comprehension, I could only guess it was a shop attendant telling us she would be with us shortly.
And being the brainless daredevil I was, I took a step forward and tried to peer through the glass………….
We were so shocked we jumped like 1 meter behind =__________=
Apparently you can also pay a fee to get a portable gadget that allows you to interact with the air. Alright, not air, some high tech simulation stuffs. Saw a few guys going around aiming their gadget at the empty atmosphere and hand pedalling their gadget enthusiastically.
Guy at the back is doing such activity but you can’t see it because it’s just too dark
Spooky Classroom that totally scared the shit out of Cvy @@;
Another eerie instalment in the guise of a traditional public toilet! It was payable entrance so we skipped it =x
Finally got out of the spooky land and to the more amusing parts xD!
Monster Hunter superimpose board!
I tried to do a pose of me salivating at the roast meat but Cvy says i look more like I’m smelling the armpits=_= WTF?!?!
Gintama Ice creams!!!
And we found a huge Ice cream store!
With all sorts of random flavours. Such as….
Squid Ink =_=
For once Wasabi seems less daunting …
Nato ewwwww .>.<
like what?! Silk? Collagen you mean? Silk Ice cream is epic win…
…but nothing beats an Ice cream of an inanimate & ‘never alive’ flavour. Seriously, someone tell me how is this possible?! Only in Japan xDDD
Anyway, Cvy and I took our own sweet time choosing our ice cream and I’m sure it is much to all of your disappointment that we chose… Cheese & Yubari melon =X. Sorry, wasn’t exactly up for an adventure after that heart stopping incident xD
NYANKO SENSEIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I spent 200yen trying this but failed=_=
And then there was an entire Gintama corner!!!
When I was there, Namja Town was having a Monster Hunter, Gintama and Sengoku Basara themed exhibition! Lucky Us!!
The entire Namja town was serving a whole catalogue of Gintama & Basara food! SHO CUTE T__T
And here’s the Sengoku Basara exhibit area!
After enjoying a few hours at Namja Town, it was finally time for us to check into our rooms! We stayed at Sunshine Prince Hotel that was at Ikebukuro. I was initially a little sad I couldn't sleep on a Tatami but when we saw our hotel room, all regrets was erased!
Check out our biiiiiggg room!
Even bigger surprise? The famous Otome street is just beside our hotel! In fact, it's directly across our level 29 room!
Anyway, because this entry is too much of a bandwidth sucker, I’m going to split day 1 into 2 post. Next post will be Meiji Shrine and Harajuku!!
