Japan Tokyo Shinjuku Okonomiyaki

20 November 2019

The last supper

Eating okonomiyaki in Shinjuku

What to have for my last dinner on this trip other than plane food? Okonomiyaki!
It was cold outside, so I headed underground to the Sunbade underground mall where all the Japanese choices were available. By a process of elimination, Okonomiyaki was the winner.
It was good, I got the many green onions version.

I dont have much else to say, tomorrow I have to leave quite early to get to the airport for an 11:30 departure. So for now I will rate the 4 new cities I visited this year -

1. Yamagata
2. Takasaki
3. Koriyama
4. Niigata

Also the two best hikes was a draw between Bandai and Tanigawa, with Zao coming in third.

Next year, for my 10th trip, I will probably go to Shikoku as I have never been before. An island without Shinkansen.

I will probably post one more update tomorrow, but probably not until I am at Hong Kong airport.... although I will need to get a lot of stpes somehow! Maybe I wont upload it until I land back in Melbourne.

This is BIC Camera, but more interestingly, the stadium seating on the right is all for people to sit and play Pokemon Go. It seems to be very popular with senior citizens. Seats mostly empty tonight due to the sudden cold I suspect.

The food stalls I posted last night are for the local shrine festival, there are a lot more tonight. I was trapped in a wave of people, getting in the way taking photos.
