The first day, I stopped by a couple of art galleries and then headed to Tokyo Tower to meet up with some friends. It's not the biggest tower in Tokyo any more, but I think it might just be the prettiest.
For the last evening I headed to Shibuya for one of the highlights of my trip - the Rilakkuma Cafe!
Decorations in the shopping district:
The whole Tower Records Cafe has a nice feel to it. (With Rilakkuma bunting!)
... it was pretty fabulous.
And if you want to go, it's only around until about halfway through August!
Since Tokyo, I have been crazy busy clearing my room. I move out of my dormitory this afternoon, so you have to clean every corner, every mirror, hide every tea stain... (actually I didn't leave any stains, though when I moved the bed to hoover underneath it I found a couple of patches of what I hope was just coffee left by the previous inhabitant...) I also had to run down halfway through writing this to send my boxes home with the post office guy - it's really nice that they come to pick up heavy boxes for free. So now that's done, and all that's left is me and my airplane luggage! I guess it'll be a bit of a struggle to move it to a hostel and then to the airport, but given how hectic the last couple of days have been I'm actually quite grateful that I'm moving out of here before I have to start dealing with moving out of Japan.
I think I'll write one more post on this blog - I should be up to a lot of fun touristy stuff in the next couple of days. Then it's back to the UK!
