It rained all day today and the sky was a gloomy grey. Thank goodness we didnt have any plans today because we wanted to relax a little and rest from yesterday’s work out at the ski resort.
Slept in and made brunch from the stuff we got from the supermarket. I love shopping for groceries at a foreign supermarket and seriously their supermarket is so good. Food is so yummy and affordable.
The rain stopped a little and we headed to the bank because Edel needed to buy some Yen. Spent the rest of the day just roaming and wandering about the center of the city in the Susukino district in search of postcards and souvenirs. Had some really really good cheese tart too!
Found some really cool vintage alternative stores that were literally underground. Love their stuff; legit and cool vintage items.
Also chanced by a pet store that had the cutest puppies!!!
I really hate cats but I gotta admit this one’s really adorable! Its like a ball. The setting sun in the sky and the light coloured buildings made everything look like pastels. Everything here is so aesthetically pleasing and there’s so much pastel around. From their toilets to their shoe editions.
Had some takoyaki at a street side stand-up store and crossed the busiest intersection of the town, a mini Shibuya. And then a weird thing happened. Suddenly there were a lot of people on our side of the street, particularly almost identical looking males. They had long styled hair and all wore light make up on their faces and were dressed in coats and they all seemed to be waiting and looking for something. A few guys came up to us and spoke to us in Japanese but we didnt get it but then I saw a flyer they were handing out and on it was a bunch of identical looking guys and I think it was so night entertainment thing where you go to a bar or something to watch these guys. So I am guessing those bunch of people were gigolos or hosts?
Headed back to the hostel and was about to get really late dinner at this stand up ramen store we saw earlier but it was closed. Shops here close really early and the streets get really really quiet, deserted and windy as soon as the sun sets. Went to the supermarket again and made dinner back at the hostel.
So glad today’s a chill day because my body is aching like hell from yesterday’s time at Mount Teine. Tomorrow we’re headed for the morning fish market, the zoo, shrine and maybe Mount Moiwa and Shiroi Kobito Park so its gonna be an extremely long day. Its almost near the end of the trip boooo. I am so comfortable here in Japan I really dont wanna head back so soon. Its such a great place!
