Japan 2011 – Nakano

Went around looking for a replacement point and shoot camera, and decided that’s not the way to blow my money ^^;

A couple cameras we were eyeing, cost almost half as much more to buy it in Japan than Canada with the strong yen against Canadian… =_=;;;

In the end, I decided to get an older kit lens which is discontinued at a much more reasonable price, at a camera shop which sold new and old camera/equipment. Finally got to take more photos tonight ^^;

Before getting the camera, we walked around in Nakano Broadway to check out some of the shops :3 had a nice time ogling at the Dollfie dreams ^^; So expensive haha ^^;;;

Faint… at the price tag…. (puppies covering Sasara’s puppies — they were very erm perky ^^;)

Parabox shop looked a bit different from what I remember… Either they moved or they renovated XD tempted to buy a lot more stuff than I should ^^;

Photos below are taken with the new lens

Time for dinner, we decided to try out a teppanyaki place which was quite hidden, had to go to 2nd floor to get to it :D the young waitress who tended to us spoke some English and helped us out a lot — I was stammering in my limited broken Japanese HAHA how embarrassing ^^;;;

Mos burger!!!

Husband saw this adorable stray cat hiding in a corner XD took a few shots, glad one turned out fine :)

Missing Ginko and Yoshi… luckily our house/cat sitters took some pictures for us :3

Omake: Saw and bought a Pon de Lion toy figure 2nd hand at a pretty decent price at one of the shops XD so happy! I wanted one for a long time :P

Thanks for looking!
