Japan Tokyo Akihabara Curry

28 October 2018

I should be more tired

Akihabara at night

I think I slept for a maximum of one hour on the plane. Before departing I woke up at 6am Saturday morning Australian time which is 4am Japan time. So 1 hours sleep in 40 hours. Cool.
So I should be more tired, when I have done similar journeys before I have been more tired. Oh well.

This evening since I forecasted being tired I did not go very far, in fact I just walked to Akihabara and back and had dinner and took photos of neon, standard Tokyo activity.
It was quite busy there, although the streets dont remain closed off at night, and there is a lot of construction going on. There are also lots of tourists.

At one point I went into a convenience store to get a drink and there was a family of spoilt teenage children demanding to have pringles and chocolate for dinner because all Japanese food is horrible and they hate this place and want to go home. They could barely move under all the weight of the crap their parents had bought for them.
I used my patented glare of death at a couple of them and they moved away from me looking back over their shoulders to check I was not still glaring at them...I was.

Here is Gokyudansan, famous for his purple legs. Gokyu is the first gay cross species hybrid in anime. He is part man and part eggplant, and his lover is also part eggplant. They go on epic journeys to taste the fear of their enemies which apparently involves spinning around a lot until you turn into a gelatinous blob.

Some more neon. There were lots of people handing out pamphlets for the local nurse cafe, where you pay $150 to have your temperature taken. Price also includes a piece of cake.

Here is the local Yodobashi. I have eaten dinner in the camera shop before. It has 2 levels of dinner places. I decided I should really get back to the hoteland go to sleep, so I went with the camera store food court to save endless wandering not deciding on what is not the best option to not have to eat.

Now that the location decision was made, I still had to decide on which mini restaurant I would eat at, that turned out to be easy, SOUP CURRY! I selected the vegetarian option that is potato and okra, and the hottest 100/100 scale on the chilli.

I thought I would get to bed early but then I saw a public screening of Men in Black! Will Smith and that other dude whos name I forget in one of the 17 greatest buddy cop alien hunting movies ever made. Hearing it dubbed in Japanese really added a new dimension to the narrative.
