Day Four: Hanging out in Tokyo! Today was just a day of doing random stuff in Tokyo.

Be sure to follow our Twitter and Instagram Stories for live updates from our trip!

Image
Good morning from Japan! You know it’s a nice day here when we can see Mt. Fuji from our hotel in Tokyo!



Image
Spending some time in Harajuku this morning.

Image
Image
This area has become waaaaay more touristy over the years but it’s still fun to go check out some of the shops.

Image
Japanese Crepes are like crack!

Image
These things are soooo good!

Image
And you can pretty much find a crepe place on every other street in Tokyo!

Image
Image
You know you’re in a touristy area of Tokyo when they have English instructions on how to use a Japanese vending machine!

Image
Most people come to Harajuku for Japanese clothing & cosplay but Kristen is here because it’s also a “Squishy” Heaven!!!

Image
Image
This store right here is one of the more popular "Squishy Stores!"

Image
Squishies are all the rage now!

Image
Everything squishes. Animals, hamburgers, animals in the shape of hamburgers...

Image
bakery items, etc. If it exists in this world, it squishes!!!

Image
So she ended up with an entire bag of squishies!

Image
Image
Going to need charter a plane to bring back all the squishies, Disney stuff and all the other random things we will buy! (I’m not complaining!)

Image
Image
For lunch we’re at a fairly popular & highly ranked (although a bit touristy) Gyoza Bar in Harajuku.

Image
Image
Those dumplings are delicious!!!

Image
Image
Yup... This exists.



Image
Image
Image
The “Hedgehog Cafe” was amazing!

Image
ROBB!!! DO NOT EAT THE HEDGEHOG!!! Tails would be very upset!

Image
“Hi!”

Image
Were you aware that we needed cosplay costumes for our Tsum Tsums?

Image
I wasn’t either...

Image
But now that I know... I want all of them!!!



Image
Yes, Tower Records is alive and well in Japan!

Image
We have been coming to this Yakitori place in Shibuya for 11 years...

Image
Image
...and it’s one of our favorite restaurants in Japan!

Image
I love eating vegetables...

Image
...as long as it’s wrapped in bacon!

Now, POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!! After all, we took the time to write this report, the least you can do is post something nice about it! :P

Wow, what an awesome view of Fuji from your hotel room!
<sighs> I absolutely love all Japanese displays of plastic foods/drinks/CREPES!

Um, Squishes look just....wierd to me. But they're Squishes, so Power to them!
Gyozas....YUMMMMMMM! They always rock.

Hedgehogs.....awwwwwwww. I want one for Stella, as her pet, HA - HA. So cute they are.
And finally...YAKITORI RULES! I remember me and David finding a great place in Sapporo, back in 2013.

Great stuff as always, Robb. Looking forward to more and more! =)

These posts are making us homesick, and we’ve only visited Japan once! Love all the details you’re sharing for shopping, restaurants and random places. Taking lots of notes for our next trip! Wish America was more like Japan too!

Nice Photo TR. Tokyo & Disney Sea look amazing as usual. Can't wait to finally get out there in the fall. Enjoy the rest of your time in Japan. =)
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

The existence and popularity of squishies makes me retrospectively way less confused about the scented foam "stress croissant" I recently found in a drugstore.

I was approximately 69% sure that Condomania would turn out to be...not what I first assumed, but now I'm pretty sure I was right the first time. :angel:
