1st and 2nd day in Tokyo

this is the Shinkansen "bullet train". it goes up to 300 km/h it says which is about 186 miles per hr. I rode on the one in the middle, the coolest looking one from Osaka to Tokyo. it took about 2.5 hrs and was pretty cool and very spacious.

look at how much mother loving space i get!

did i mention before how amazing the clouds are in japan? i guess its cuz its an island

you can see where miyazaki got his background inspirations. here is a Laputa (castle in the sky) like cloud.

I GOT TO EXPERIENCE AN EARTHQUAKE!!! It actually woke me up in the morning and the whole building was swinging from side to side. My friend Akari that stayed in the hotel also said it was only probably a 3.0 on the scale or something.

here is amanda, yuko, and akari, all from FIT and still have more years of school left.

color inspiration at the bar we went to.

this fishing net really prevented me from stealing any luggage.

i was laughing so hard when i found out what this convenience store sign means. there are these convenience stores everywhere and i always thought wat kind of a name is Sun-K-us? what sense does that make. Then akari told me that if you say it fast it is "Thanks" in a japanese accent. GO ON TRY IT, keep on saying it faster until it sounds like Thanks with a japanese accent and you will be laughing too! it sounds kind of like "sanks" when you're all done with it. HHAHAHAHa

wat the hell is wrong with this guy? the woman next to him thinks theres nothing wrong with him and no one else did either but me and akari were laughing big time. if you can't see its a man with silken legs and daisy dukes and wedges! the wedges make me think that he is seriously wearing this stuff because if he were trying to go the other way he would be wearing stilettos or something but not gross wedges.

i thought i had all i could possible get from china and kyoto with their temples and ceramic tiled roofs but again i was amazed. the massive size and shape of this one is pretty O-some.

here i got my chance to get all weird and spiritual wafting incense onto my soul. Akari said something about Shintoism and not buddhism but i was too busy being a jerk and i remember the word shintoism from highschool but don't remember what thats about so i will have to look it up on wikipedia later.

this guy had a plastic hair thing on his head

this bird and this pigeon were facing off for quite some time.

this is like the 5th avenue of tokyo but for some reason it was like bring your harlem to tokyo day.

there are a lot of un-pc images in japan (more in the next post). akari said that this publisher got sued or something over these images and i said why are they still on the shelf then and she didn't know.

the uniqlo store on the 5th ave of tokyo which i forgot what its called. i got some chino pants there, and no i don't mean the spanish word that catergorizes every asian person i mean chinos like the pants!
