We woke up pretty late on our second day in Tokyo and left our hotel around 4pm. Our first stop was Shinjuku, which we took the complimentary hotel shuttle bus service there.
One thing that I like about Japan is the neon signs which brings vibrancy and life to the streets.
We went to this sushi restaurant as recommended by the hotel’s concierge to have good and reasonably priced sushi.
We ordered two different types of set meals to share.
Take a look of the fat marbling of the fatty tuna sushi (O-toro 大とろ) in the deluxe set. O-toro is the most priced part of tuna and the fattiest portion of the tuna belly. The first mouthful was so mind-blowing and the fats just melt in my mouth. OMG. IT WAS SO SO SO SO DELICIOUS!!!
Our second stop was Shibuya.
Boy is standing in the middle of the road to take the photo. This is the famous intersection outside Shibuya Station, where all the traffic lights will turn red at the same time and you can cross at any direction.
This is how the concept of Standing Sushi Bar looks like – A small cramped shop where diners have to stand at the counter to eat. The sushi is freshly prepared by the sushi chef on the spot. The sushi is pretty good and definitely nicer than conveyor belt sushi.
My boy was still feeling hungry so we went to this shop to find more things to eat. My boy has an amazingly huge appetite and he kept telling me that he was hungry during this trip. So cute! 🙂
I was really loaded with sushi but I continue to eat with him. 😉
We ordered sashimi and scallop. The scallop is so huge and fresh! I love scallops! 😀
I love this photo soooo much cos my boy looks so cute here! Like a little boy! 🙂
Our last stop was Roppongi, which is famous for its nightlife. We rested a little while in Starbucks before searching for the best club to see-see-look-look.
As recommended by the hotel’s concierge, Gaspanic Club is one of the most happening clubs in Tokyo. I was pretty disappointed when we entered Gaspanic Club cos the club is so freaking small! I am not a clubbing person but our clubs in Singapore definitely score better than the clubs here. We decided to search for a better place to chill so we walked throughout Roppongi but we came back to Gaspanic Club again cos the other clubs really can’t make it at all.
Guess what I found for the descriptions about Gaspanic Club in Wikitravel.
Gaspanic. The best known of Roppongi’s many meat markets, where desperate gaijin men and desperate women hoping to score congregate. Nobody ever admits to going here, but it’s packed tighter than the lower circles of Hell on most weekends.
And..It is very TRUE! Anyway, the meaning of Gaijin is foreigner. For some reasons, I find that the women in the club are more desperate than the men. It is so different! In Singapore, women are usually the ones who shun away from the men. But over here, the men are the ones who shun away from the women. I do not know why but one thing for sure is Japanese girls are really pretty! If I am a man, I will marry a Japanese woman as my wife. So beautiful and demure!
We got pretty bored so we headed to our favorite hang out place instead – Sushi restaurant!
I forgot to take photos of the sushi we had. Anyway, can you spot the caucasian lady in the background? She is sweetest caucasian I have ever met! She has cultivated the good virtues of the Japanese culture and she can speak Japanese so sweetly. I think women will become prettier and sweeter after staying in Japan for a period of time.
My boy is happy cos he has his sushi again! 🙂
– End of Day 2 –
