Japan Trip - Part Four: Tokyo and Kyoto

Here's the last part of my little adventure in Japan. It was around Children's Day when we visited Tokyo Tower so there were still a lot of the decorations hung up in the popular areas. 

We stopped in the cafe at the entrance of the Tower which was themed on the anime One Piece.

We had an iced latte and a chocolate cookie milkshake. The latte had a swirl of candy floss on top which I was very excited about! 

We also shared a mug of waffle fries which were very tasty. 

The cafe was decorated with little nods to characters from the anime i.e. Chopper's backpack and Luffy's straw hat.

Not sure who this is but he was hidden away in the ceiling!

Up to the main viewing floor.

On the walk back we stopped at some of the shrines. 

All the unlucky fortunes drawn are tied here. 

Onto Kyoto where it had been raining most of the day so I didn't get many photos.

That's the end of my trip for the most part. I may add some other photos later of my shopping experiences there as I went a bit overboard in that area :P I hope you enjoyed my little collection of photographs and memories of Japan. I definitely intend to go back soon!

Japan Trip - Tokyo Part Three

Next stop Electric Town!

I really liked Akihabara. The shops had so many cool and cute things. 

We then took a trip to Ikebukuro where the Pokemon Mega Store is and also loads of amazing shops. 

Had to try a green tea frappaccino from Starbucks which was so good! I really wish they made these in the UK.

At every opportunity, when we went to a cafe I had a milk tea and this was the best one being a strawberry flavour one. 

Oh my goodness there was a YuGiOh themed cafe which I would have loved to go to but we had already booked to go to the Cardcaptor Sakura cafe.

Heres the overly cute and pink Cardcaptor Sakura cafe in the animate store. 

Kero shaped orange marmalade hot chocolate. 

Ice cream sunday with a clow card shaped biscuit.

This is what they gave you as a table marker. How flipping cute is this key!?

Pancakes and berry compote.
