Tokyo

My first time to Yokohama!
My first time on a Shinkansen.
A was so excited about the ride that we were like super suaguchildren on the ride,
exclaiming at the speed, about how clean it was, about how steady and quiet it was we can hardly feel its speed.
We reached Yokohama in what felt like 5 mins. Hahaha!

I’ve heard so much about the Cup Noodle Museum and I was really looking forward to the trip.
I mean, cup noodles! They have accompanied me through my loneliest, hungriest nights.
They are my biggest love! :p

When I first stepped into the museum, I was blown away.
This is no ordinary museum, the architecture and interior design is fabulous and *my goodness*, so beautiful!
Everything was minimalistic.
White, clean and bright.
No unnecessary cheesy displays.
And I love how they always go straight to the point, and showcased everything with such
pleasing aesthetic sense and creativity.

My favourite part of the tour around the museum was the cup noodle making “workshop”!
I get to pick what I want in my cup noodle, and I also designed my very first Nissin Cup Noodle!
*I brought the cup noodle I made back to Singapore and I ate it yesterday.
It is DIFFERENT from what we’ve been having in Singapore. That one tasted so FREAKING GOOD!*

This Tokyo trip also marks my first time on the Tokyo Skytree.
Yes I’ve been on the Eiffel Tower.
And even in Tokyo, I did not visit the Tokyo Tower because it has totally paled in comparison
with the brand new Tokyo Skytree!

If I’m not wrong, it is the second highest tower in the world, just right after Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

MAN IT WAS HIGH! And they were sickening enough to make one particular part of the floor see-through!

Dinner was spectacular and we wined and dined to the most beautiful views – 450m off the ground!
Special thanks to The Tiramisu Hero Japan team for spoiling us like that. :p

Lastly, my current favourite haunt in Tokyo.
Shimokitazawa.
This is as hip and quaint as Cat Street but way cooler and cosier to be in!
A little like the Haji Lane of Singapore.
A took me here and I was fell in love with this place instantly.

There were many cute cafes littered all around.
And if you’re heading to Shimokitazawa too, do start with the North side of the area –
that’s where most of the hippie stuff are in.
There are a lot of nice vintage stores there, and they have some treasures that I wish I could lug all home.
Lots of pre-loved clothes & accessories, and some of them are of good brands.
ALL at super pocket-friendly prices! *BRING ME BACK!*

Our Tokyo trip is way too short.
And I do wish to be able to return to Japan, and visit the different cities within Japan.

On our last day, we did some last minute shopping!
(A and I are not really shoppers, regardless of where we are or how affordable the things are)
I am super in love with the Hunter boots and now I’m praying for rain everyday.
HAHAHA!

Sayonara, Tokyo.
Till the next time.

And for now, I will patiently count down to my next 21-days Italy trip.
49 more days.
