Ooops apparently my husband (UC420) was logged in. I was the one that posted that last comment! But I'm sure he feels the same way I do!

Were you not worried about radiation leak from the nuclear power plant disaster?

Do you honestly think we would bring our 4 year old daughter to a place that would put her in danger?

Today was kind of a "random free day" since the official tour hadn't started quite yet. We had some tour work stuff we needed to get done, but we spent the afternoon checking out the "Sunshine City" area around our hotel, which included some pretty "bizarre" attractions, and other stuff...

If you'd like to follow us LIVE - check out our Twitter and Facebook updates!

Image
There was this strange themed town called "Namjatown" located as part of our hotel complex.

Image
It was sort of like a theme park, so we bought admission tickets to check it out...

Image
Hooray! Boob credit!

Image
The place is hard to describe. It's a VERY Japanese, interactive, video game theme park.

Image
There are all sorts of themed areas with different attractions.

Image
Most of them very "DisneyQuest"-like.

Image
But all VERY Japanese!

Image
There are these little interactive kiosks all over the place...press buttons...weird stuff happens.

Image
We started walking down the "haunted area."

Image
Creepy Japanese stuff everywhere.

Image
This "cat" was some sort of mascot of the park.

Image
This is "Hell Toilet", and interactive, audio, pooping experience!

Image
Namjatown is also famous for it's eating areas, this one is "Gyoza Stadium" where you'll find hundreds of differed kinds of dumplings.

Image
Literally hundreds! This place was insane!

Image
This guy CLEARLY has the Tiger Blood!

Image
More of these interactive games/attractions.

Image
More themed areas.

Image
Namjatown is totally one of those "Screwed up Japanese" places that you just have to see!

Image
I'm sure if we spoke the language, this would all make sense...then again, probably not! ;)

Image
This place actually had about 100 different varieties of dumplings!

Image
Along with Gyoza Stadium, Namjatown also features "Ice Cream City."

Image
WTF?

Image
WTF?!?!?

Image
It wouldn't be a place like this without tons of games!

Image
Ice Cream City had just about every type of ice cream imaginable.

Image
How are people in this country not fat???

Image
The Ice Cream Shop had hundreds of different flavors.

Image
Not exaggerating!!!

Image
Garlic ice cream comes in a Dracula container.

Image
Yes, that says ox tongue.

Image
Mmmmm....wasabi!

Image
Chicken wing ice cream?!?!

Image
Grated Yam???

Image
WTF??? How is charcoal a flavor???

Image
Here are the best flavors!

Image
All the soft serve you can eat.

Image
Taiko no Tatsujin is up to volume 14 already!

Image
Tons of high tech video games.

Image
"It's milk and eggs, bitch."

Image
"I got a bag-o-Japanese crap!"

Image
"We got a huge bucket of candy!"

Image
"We are trying to win a giant head."

Image
"I love head!"

Image
WTF???

Image
Random shooting gallery game.

Image
They even had a carousel.

Image
What a strange, strange, but awesome place!

Image
We took a walk around Sunshine City, a shopping and attraction district next to our hotel.

Image
I didn't even know Shakey's still existed...let alone in Japan!

Image
Um, hey...let's go see what's down here...Hey!

Image
Nightmares!

Image
All the latest and greatest Nintendo capsule toys!

Image
"The record companies won in the court room. You wanna buy a Tower Records Edwardo?"

Image
More drum machine games!!!

Image
Lets check out another crazy Japanese arcade.

Image
More Mario sound bytes!

Image
Pachinko is found on almost every street corner.

Image
Does this count as a credit?

Image
Games...

Image
...and more games!

Image
This was a REALLY interesting store full of a random assortment of things.

Image
WTF capsule!!!

Image
Cool video game stuff.

Image
Remember these dudes from the 80s.

Image
This is an iPhone 4 case... Awesome!!!

Image
This is on the 8th floor of Tokyu Hands...

Image
It's this "cat house" that you pay 600 yen and you walk around where these cats are roaming free!

Image
Random cat.

Image
This huge "cat house!"

Image
I love me some pussy!

Image
Yup...

Image
"Look! Cat food!"

Image
"When in Peru, you can eat me!"

Image
It's time to hand out TPR Trip bags so we can officially get this show on the road!

Image
TPR's "Welcome dinner" at one of Tokyo's best Yakitori restaurants!

Image
Yes...that is bacon wrapped asparagus!!! Sooooo good!!!

Image
Located in the heart of Shibuya....

Image
Tokyo's "Times Sqaure..."

Image
I love seeing TPR welcomed by an awesome Yakitori place!

Image
After lots of unlimited beer and sake...everything was kind of a blur to us.... Let's hope we all make the train tomorrow!

We will have more updates posted soon. Now.... POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!

Wow...what strange and freakishly awesome places! Aside from the parks and Japan itself, this would make me jealous right there.

Oh, and I wonder...is LAX the Fuji Q of airports?

The classic American foodie in me thanks you for the Shakey's Pizza photo! The rest of me thanks you for the rest of the photos. Wish I could be there in person. Stupid honeymoon....

I love the Nekobukuro! Did you see a big fat white cat with black patches? He was my favourite! Also there was a MASSIVE cat we nicknamed The King. I hope he was still there :)
