In continuation of my previous blogpost on my Japan trip, here's what I did for day 5:

Woke up early to have breakfast at Tokyo Dome Hotel of course.

Went to visit the Akusa Kannon Temple, didn't go in but we walked around the vicinity.

In Japan, it's rude to eat and walk at the same time. The vendors put up a sign to tell tourists that they have to stand at the stall and finish the food before they could walk away.

We went to Watami for lunch and.... it was the most forgettable meal in the whole trip. Not so onz. I think I had better ones here in Malaysia.

Shortly after that, we made our way to Ginza, Tokyo's most famous upscale shopping, dining and entertainment district.

We actually didn't plan to spend much on shopping but we ended up at GU, Uniqlo's sister brand and everything is so cheap there! Like RM9 (converted) for a top cheap! Imagine Uniqlo's quality at RM9. Yeah, we did bought quite a bit of clothing here, but all from GU.

Lunch was utterly disappointing but the dinner - whoa - redeemed the day for us. We had a feast! We had Kaiseki Crab Cuisine for dinner. Some pictures:


Fried crabs!

Super fragrant crab rice.

Best chawanmushi I've ever had. My sisters agree with me. The BEST.

Dessert! Vanilla ice cream with matcha. SO GOOD!

Day 5 wasn't really eventful so I don't have much to say here. First half of the day was spent walking around at Akusa Kannon Temple, looking for merchandise to buy back for souvenirs but didn't buy much either. Spend most of the second half of the day at Ginza shopping.

Night time, we went out again. Since we were staying at Tokyo Dome Hotel for the second consecutive night, we kinda knew where to walk. It was raining again by the way. Wet, wet Tokyo.

Wanted to get this for supper but in the end I didn't.

Had gyoza instead! YUMS.

So that's the end of Day 5. The next post should be a little more exciting because it's DISNEYLAND!
