it really was worth the upcharge tho, right? I thought it was pretty amazing.

the fishing didn't do all the much for me and I can't imagine paying just to pretend to catch digital fish - seriously, I think I got more enjoyment just WATCHING the tank, and that part was free.

but get why the upcharge. . . this couldn't have been inexpensive to install that whole digital area.

After a fantastic day at Nagashima Spaland, I woke up nice and early and finished packing up everything.

we were headed to Tokyo today, for a cooking class (that, spoiler, was amazing. . we learned how to make Gyoza & Yakisoba).

it was a free day, as long as we were at the cooking class in Tokyo by 6pm, and after the class? we were going to be headed to Tokyo Disney Resort Complex to check into our final hotel for the trip, and the Disney Days.

but on this day? Jon and I were gonna go on a Godzilla hunt!

Nice report! You're every bit the Godzilla and kaiju fan in general I am. I need to spend some more time exploring Kabukicho when I go back. So much to see there.

yeah, this turned out to be a great day (even tho we never got to meet up with Kristen due to the Typhoon messing with flights in).

but as huge a Godzilla / Kaiju fan i am, I'm a bigger DC comics fan. . so the day would only get better when we stumbled across the DC Pop Up store in Shibuya. . and then climaxing with that fantastic Cooking class! (before ending the full day at TokyoDisney complex).

Even without a single rollercoaster or theme park on this day, it ends up ranking pretty high on the list of days spent in Japan. Although, really, EVERY day on this trip was really spectacular - even the Typhoon Day in Osaka.

thanks!

yep, big fan. . and I was thinking the same thing about you when you were posting your report with images from the films showing the landmarks.

I'd love to do a landmark tour like you were able to put together :)
