My sweet sweet Kitty-friends, even if everyone here in Italy is crazy for sun and seaside, once back from Tokyo I could only think about Japan (>.<)
I’m missing so much everything about that gorgeous country, I must have been japanese in my previous life, for as much I was feeling at home! I was sure it would have been an amazing travel for me, and before leaving I prepared a kind of walking plan to decide my “must see!” places. One of those was Akihabara – they call it the tech town, but for me it’s just the geek’s paradise!
The lovely Shinkansen (in the photo above, that’s how they call trains in japanese ^_^) will welcome you as you arrive at Akihabara station, can you see how smiling and cute he is?
So many electronics shops in here, manga and anime stores at every corner, ramen restaurants, colors, screaming people… gosh, in a couple words, a crazy heaven!I was stunned by all those shops and sounds, just walking around with joyful tears in my eyes and saying “wow” “wow” “wow”… I’m pretty sure people there must have thought I was retarded…
There’re so many funny things in there, such as the Maid Cafè, the one you see in the pic above: if you go there to have a coffee, you’ll realize that the waitresses are all dressed as maids, cute cosplay maids! This one is one of the biggest I’ve seen in there, they said me there’s also the “male version” of this cafè… but I can’t tell, I’ve not been in there ’cause I was too busy running around like a messy gal!
And in Akihabara there’re also Sega and Taito’s palaces: just think about the biggest amusement arcade you can imagine… well, maybe they’re even bigger! I bought a lot of gashapons in Sega palace, while in Taito one I had fun making some kawaii pics in the “cutifie me” photo boot… I spent about an hour playing with my photos and the retouching software!
And then… the action figures shops \(^o^)/
How beautiful, how incredible… here is where plastic makes your dreams come true! I tried not to spend too much in these shops, because I was saving for my Hello Kitty shopping trip in KiddyLand… but I’ll tell you next time about it, this post is long enough to give you a big virtual hug if you were able to read it till… here!
Ciao for now, my beloved Kitty-gals, I’ll be back in the next few days with another Tokyo walking trip in my cute shoes =(^.^)=
