First images from Tokyo

I only took a few photos yesterday on our walk through Shinjuku, Harajuku and Shibuya. We saw a lot of amazing places but I must admit, I just didn't get a lot of photos taken.

Hachiko the faithful dog.

I always seem to find my mother's name on trips abroad. In Brussels I sought out the Lunette cafe, but here I just happened upon this glasses shop.

Out of the hundreds of crazy outfits I saw yesterday, this couple won the crazy costume contest. He is wearing fleece pants and had on a fleece stole which he is now carrying and she is wearing a skirt made entirely of patches of sweater and trimmed with blue fur. Wow!

Our first takoyaki(also known as searing mouth pain) in Japan. These were delicious.

All gone!

Last night's dinner and my very first bowl of ramen in Japan. Shredded, leeks on top of this miso ramen made it very good but a bit strong in flavor. One of the tastiest bowls of ramen I've ever had.

It looks as though I am everywhere you want to be. I hope you continue to stay well, have fun, and make lovely memories together.

Hi Lynnea, the takoyaki and ramen looks great! Looking forward in seeing more photos. :)

Where else are you going? Are you going to Kobe or Osaka? These are places your grandfather went to in the early 1950s. I think there are better places to see than Tokyo.

Hi Kirk, Thanks! the next post should be coming soon =)

Hi Dennis, yes they were really delicious; honestly, all the food in Japan has been amazing so far.

Grandma, I keep thinking of Grandpa on this trip and how incredibly wonderful he was. The very first day we were here I told Matthew how much I wish I could talk to him about Japan, now that I'm a little familiar with the country.
