So then the next day we wanted to go explore Shinjuku area... We went on foot again because
we need to learn the way around... ^_^;
We walked all the way to Shinjuku station... by the time we got there ... the
weather was so hot... but we kept walking. Suddenly we saw some weird building that resembled a college or something like
that and there was a park to walk through...!!! shade!! Excited we ran towards it... as expected... it was really nice and
cool...Also there are cool pigeons in Japan... i couldnt help myself... it looked so cute... i took some photos... here
After that we went to see those tall trees that resembled christmas trees... they were so
huge... like in anime... ^_^; after our long walk we decided to head back ... to Mana-sama's store!!! hahahahha
On the way i took another picture of me...
Then when walking back i saw a bookstore...it was all pink! i wanted to look... but i was
so exhausted...my legs were hurting... you know livining in Florida... we rarely walk... here we drive alot... and both I
and emily couldnt walk hahaha filled with blisters and pain... yet growing muscle... hahaha
We returned to hotel...
and ate some KFC we bought on the way... ^_^ *yes there is KFC in japan!* After a break and shower, we changed and went
out again... it was about 5pm... but it was bright outside... ^_^; so we decided to look for more parks... and luckily next
to our hotel tere was a park... i have no idea what it is called... but we visited it eveyday since we discovered... it
is amazing... and omg the ravens in the park were huge!! ( just like in dramas) and they talked funny... or creepy...
^_^; i tried to take picture but i failed... But here are some pictures from that park... ^_^
The next day, I contacted with my penpal whom i have known since 2002. my penpal in Tokyo is named
Yoshiki and he is a policeman, he is only 20 years old...so he is always so busy because he is studying to be a lawyer...He
told me that his friend will guide us around on wednesday... that was the day of the concert... the DBSK concert...
It would have been our first concert in Tokyo... so both I and Emily were waiting with excitement... At 4pm we met Yasuhiko,
my penpal's friend, down in the hotel's lobby. He recognized me immidietly... he introduced himself and asked where we wanted
to go. His english was perfect... i was curious why... and he said that he studied abroad in Boston for a year... it was great
it was easy to communicate...!! Emily kept asking him how to read kanji on the street.... ^_^;
We told him
that we want to go to the concert at Zepp Tokyo... he asked if we had tickets... NOO!! we didnt... he called the venue and
sadly they were sold out.... damn it...!! so he told us that he gonna show us how to use trains... it was very
useful... since now we knew how to use trains we could go outside Shinjuku... like to Harajuku and Shibuya!!
Yasuhiko showed us Yoyogi park... it was breath taking... but since i thought we were gonna go to Zepp Tokyo for a cocnert...
i didnt bring my camera!!! ;___; So after walking it seemed like for centuries... we arrived at shibuya... it
was already getting dark... but the lights were beautiful and i was really excited when we reached Shibuya 109!!!! it
was as beautiful as i saw it in videos....i decided tommorow to tkae pictures there...!!
Later on we arrived in Shijuku,
Yasuhiko showed us the underground way to get to Shinjuku station and also the post office where ATMs are!! this is important
to know because not all plces accept credit cards!! We said our goodbyes and went back to hotel...
I was starving!!!!
we went to the grocery store downstairs and bought this... btw this is just my food!! people say to never shop for food when
you are starving... >_<; i did... and there you go... my dinner... which of course i havent finished eating!
The rice cake thingy near the Crunky bar was delicious!!! Also i had to buy dango!! after watching
Hana yori Dango... i had to try it!!! >_<;
We watched some of the funny videos on TV... here is the one i

try to figure out what food it is... XD this time they put a snake!! hahah the guy's expression is priceless!!! X D
