Tokyo (Shibuya) 6/12/10-6/13/10

Otherwise titled: The weekend away (for luxury and pampering) from the dump that we currently reside in! For some reason I don't think that whole title will fit within the blogs settings!

At any rate, we went to Tokyo, really we checked into the hotel (which seemed like the Biltmore compared to where we have been staying), and then headed out to Shibuya on a mission. My mission was to find at least 1 new Kit Kat flavor to bring to my collection. I failed miserably (I know, disappointing!)

I was able to finally capture (photographically speaking) the smoking man that I walk by daily. I mean, wouldn't this guy make you want to smoke a pack of Winstons?! Don't lie.

I mean, do you think you could pull off those jean shorts...I THINK NOT! Thank you Winstons.

Shibuya was pretty's just one of the many sections of Tokyo. There were tons of different stores and eating options. We opted for a little Italian joint (I know Italian in Japan...blah blah) and it was fantastic, the pizza was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect!

We spent the entire day walking around and I'm not kidding you when I say we probably walked at least 10 miles. Thankfully it was a beautiful, sunny, I love Japan kind of day!

We got back to the hotel and dined at one of their many restaurants...a wonderful 5 course dinner with grapefruit sorbet tucked in the middle (to cleanse the pallet of course!). By the time the 5th course came around (my praline cheesecake) I could barely take a few bites. Oh and let me tell you about my cocktail...Key Lime Martini, with crushed graham cracker crumbs lining the glass. It was wonderfully amazing. All you key limers would have LOVED it! You know who you are...!

The next morning (6/13) we at the most amazing brunch...I mean seriously, the best brunch I've ever had. I felt like I was going to puke by the time I walked out but it was well worth every bite and calorie! After that it was pampering with spa services and home. I will post separately about the spa experience because it deserves it's on post!

I have been doing some reading since my last books update. I have since completed the following books:

  • The Geography of Bliss
  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
  • The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner
  • The Girl Who Played with Fire
