What an eventful day for us! After taking care of business at Softbank (prepaid phone), we met up with Amy’s friend, Jessica, and headed to Sweets Paradise, a tabehodai (all you can eat) of cake! They serve some real food as well, but as you can imagine, it’s all about the cake. It’s amazing to see how much those chibi Japanese girls can down!
Then we experienced karaoke. Nuff said.
After walking around Shinjuku, Shibuya, and Kabukicho (redlight district…we must have walked at least 5 miles without even realizing it), we decided to have dinner at Gut’s Soul, yet another tabehodai…but this was different. This was also a nomihodai (all you can drink). So we scarfed vast quantities of yakiniku (meat) and embibed many a spirited beverage (some were super mild…we had an oolong beverage that tasted like iced tea, but was apparently pretty alcoholic…dangerous).
We both were stuffed and buzzed, and things got a little ugly for Adam (food poisoning? We’re still not sure) so he paid a visit to their men’s room.
Even though the end of the first day got a little hairy, it was super awesome-tastic. Bring it on, Japan!
