So we had Okonomiyaki for dinner today lol. I ate a lot more than I planned to. All these food items are so rare in the states, I see myself getting stuffed each day simply because I'm eating something I never had before.
Man, I want to go to Akihabara. I'm jelly :(.
I was pretty jelly of my friend when he went last year, probably one of the many reasons I'm here now lol. Going to buy so much stuff I'll probably have to mail some of it back home or else pay fines for going over the luggage weight limits for the flight back home.
I should probably try to find a maid cafe to eat lunch in when we're in Akihabara too. :3
Glad to hear you had Okonomiyaki. It's one of my favorites. Especially when it's an all you can eat for 90 minutes place.
Shabu shabu is pretty awesome also.
本当です。沼津に住んでいる。 毎平日、三島に行きます。 Me and some friends are probably going to head into Tokyo this Saturday, specifically for Akihabara lol. That day will probably be hectic though. We'll probably head in a second time if possible though, could possibly meet up then. I'll take the food recommendations to heart, probably try some don tomorrow.
Ah you'll be coming a good distance from there to Akihabara. I hope you get a seat on the train XD http://www.jorudan.co.jp/english/
is the site you might want to use for figuring out train routes. google maps is good as well.
I've been to Akihabara, plenty of times. You'll definitely want to visit Yodabashi camera. That is a must do. Yellow Submarine
is pretty cool too if you're into table top and TCG stuff. You can find some german board games and other stuff as well.
Outside the station of Akihabara should be a map of the area. There are free maps so you can see what things are around. (plenty of maid cafes, but they're not really worth the cost)
If you can find a second hand store you'll find lots of cool things that you want to buy. These places has lots of the last years and years before merchandise at a discount.
