At the Robot Restaurant in Tokyo, Japan. You eat bento and watch an hour long show involving crazy robot battles, ladies flying in on pterodactyls and pandas riding cows. It was just a really strange experience.
The most beautiful cat cafe I have been to. It’s called Temari no Ouchi (Temari’s house) in Tokyo, Japan. The soft music and ambience feels like you are in a Studio Ghibli film. Had to take the Japan Railway there, but was totally worth the extra trip, & unlike the central Tokyo cat cafes, this one has no time limit, so feels totally relaxed. Several girls were even sleeping there amongst the cats.
Santa Monica Crepes in the Harajuku district of Tokyo, Japan.
At the worlds first Kit Kat store in Tokyo, Japan. They sell flavors like green tea, cream cheese and red chilli.
Today I went to Kanamara Matsuri in Kawasaki, Japan, also known as ‘Festival of the Steel Phallus.’ It is based on an old legend of a sharp-toothed hidden vagina demon, called ‘vagina dentate’, that castrated two men on their wedding nights. A local blacksmith welded an iron phallus to break the demon’s teeth. Now the phallus is enshrined and people attend this festival to pray for protection against STIs and for increased fertility. The atmosphere was amazing, lots of music, chanting, and the smoky aroma of grilled sausages, hotdogs and octopus balls from the food stalls. At midday there was a huge procession where the large pink phallus, called Elizabeth Mikoshi, was paraded around town.

Spotted these really tiny Studio Ghibli miniature paper model kits in Japan. They are ridiculously small and detailed. /want
