愛してる – Holidays in Tokyo (Day 3)


Tokyo, Japan

The very first thing that we will do everyday is to find food or rather just sushi to fill our tummy. Our holidays to Japan is like a sushi pilgrimage to find the best sushi. We had eaten an incredible amount of sushi throughout the whole trip and you will also realize by now that most of the photos are sushi. 😉

Boy is savoring the miso soup

The miso soup in Japan is so much nicer than what we have in Singapore. The miso soup in Singapore tastes horrible and I suspect they use the instant noodle soup seasonings to cook it.

Ikura (Salmon Roe) sushi is one of my favorite sushi. 🙂

I was pretty full but my boy was still hungry so we went to search for another sushi’s restaurant to eat.

Conveyor belt sushi

I was so full so I just looked at my boy enjoying his sushi. 🙂

Our next stop was DisneySea! According to the hotel’s concierge, DisneySea is catered more for the adults whereas DisneyLand is for the children. We have been to the DisneyLand in Hong Kong so we decided to visit DisneySea instead.

Hee.. Cute! 🙂

You have to queue for all the attractions in DisneySea and the queue is insanely long. The minimum waiting time is 60 minutes! We did not have so much time and patience to queue under the cold weather. Thus, we watched this live theatrical performance Mystic Rhythms  which the waiting time was only about 20 minutes.

The show was pretty nice but we didn’t understand it cos the narration was in Japanese.

The entire casts of Mystic Rhythms

StormRider

StormRider is the very first attraction that we tried. You can see the man in grey uniform in the photo explaining to us prior boarding about the huge storm that we will be flying through. It is like a stimulator ride which the chair will shake-shake and there will also be water spraying on you. The ride was not impressive at all.

We have covered almost the whole DisneySea in a mad rush.Tokyo DisneySea is definitely a lot bigger than Hong Kong DisneyLand but we couldn’t understand the attractions cos it was all in Japanese. We missed some of the main attractions cos the waiting time was at least 100 minutes.

My verdict – I will prefer Hong Kong DisneyLand to Tokyo DisneySea cos we were able to cover the whole Hong Kong DisneyLand within a few hours and even played most of the attractions a few times. The queue was very short cos we were one of the first few customers. Narration was either in Mandarin or English which we could understand. 🙂

Boy is a little upset cos I forced him to eat ramen with me

Next, we went back to Shinjuku to have our late dinner. I insisted on having ramen cos I was getting a little sick to eat sushi for all our three meals.

Roast Pork Ramen

The ramen was really good cos we asked for the ramen to be extra rich. Yum! We finally have eaten something different in this trip! 😀

My boy’s tummy was not satisfied at all so we went to this sushi restaurant to eat.

Sashimi
Oshizushi

If I am not wrong, I think this style of sushi is called Oshizushi, which uses a small wooden box to press the sushi into little rectangles.

Boy is happily deciding what to order

My boy’s tummy was still not satisfied so we went to another sushi restaurant to continue to eat.

We ate so much sushi that I think I was getting better in taking the photos of the sushi. Hehe! 😉

Don’t the sushi look so appetizing to you? 🙂

Tuna Roll

My boy was still hungry so he ordered two tuna roll to stuff himself cos he said tuna roll had more rice. Lol! So poor thing yet so cute.

I am going to end off this post with a video of the DisneySea’s fireworks. We didn’t manage to see the fireworks when we were at Hong Kong DisneyLand.

“Disney’s Fireworks” – I can finally strike this off from my “To-Do” list with my boy. Lovely memories! 🙂
