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 ^^;;;
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!
sorry to hear that your camera is broken
After saw your pic, and feel that u’ve a good trip with your sweet heart :3
Ah! Thanks so much for the pics. They make me smile remebering the days in nihon :)
I see a sign for Okinawa cuisine! If you can you should try it cause it is amazing!
Night time adventures or jet lagged tourist? Hehehe.
Hehehe probably a little of both LOL
hehehe I remember our rainy day in Nippori XD
Yah, very unfortunate that my camera broke, have to spend unnecessary money ^^; but I guess luckily there are other option than to buy a new and overpriced camera lol, have to wait a bit to get it somewhere else >_<;
Welcome to the town of desire XD
I’d hoped to mess around there with you, if possible…Uh, so busy! Eek! X(
XD haha the land of temptations… today I spent too much money already ^^;;; budget went out of the window ^^;;;
Nakano! I had been there for 2 months working my Summer Part-time Job. ^^ Got to go to Nakano Broadway and looking around anime-related stuff everyday.
