Tokyo Day 3

On day 3 of our Tokyo trip we went to shinjuku and some other random places around town. This picture was taken on our way to Ikebukuro Station...

Japan has the weirdest drinks. Almost every day I made it a habit to try new drinks from the vending machine...this one is lychee and salt flavoured. So yummy!

Oh yeah...so I figured I could actually pixelate the photos of my boyfriend (why didn't I think of this sooner?)..so here is pixel boy :) You will see him quite often in the next blog posts of Tokyo :) He's checking our Tokyo Metro App...which I love! And I love Tokyo Metro....so convenient and clean!

Somewhere in Shinjuku...we walked in the wrong direction and wandered around aimlessly for a few hours I must confess...but we didn't mind...everything in Japan was new to us so it was all good! :) This day was so hot, btw,  the heat was killing us...but you can't really tell in the photos! 

Can you spot the woman with the parasol?

Side streets...

My skin was still recovering from the flight and this stupid phase were I experimented with not putting on moisturizers on my face for a week (don't ask!)... -_- Sorry to all the japanese people who had to look at me! ;)

You know,...just going where our feet were taking us...did I mention it was blazing hot??!!

Japanese fast food place...some type of meat bowl and I had a burger with rice and curry?

Cheap and quite good!

We spotted a Uniqlo store!

Mirror Wefie! Pixel boy and me in my tourist wear...seriously...I always travel in comfy clothes...can't be bothered to look chic ;)! Pixel boy bought a few things in Uniqlo...I played the role of his shopping assistant. :D

Japan = cuteness deluxe

This was a miniature in a clothing store...I think this shows the designers of the brand....but I forgot the brand name! ^^ Still pretty neat...

Those pies were making my mouth water...so pretty!

We found a nice café and were seated by the lovely staff who were incredibly friendly...(we never met a japanese person who wasn't friendly though! They are seriously the best!)

Please don't look at my sweaty and ugleh face. I'm vain like that, yes...

This is what I had...I forgot the name...mont blanc something? With a caramelized date on top.

My drink of choice...

Pixel boy's order....

So cute! And so yummy...

Mine was filled with a sweet cream and it was very fluffy.

A food department in Lumine (I think)....

We were there in october so the halloween-theme was going on...

Cute stuff in Lumine 2....

We passed a Ladurée counter but I think I'm the only person in this world who is not into this whole macaron trend....??? :D The ladurée ones are quite nice but I prefer brownies and icecream xD....

This must be back in Ikebukuro...we went back to our hotel to take a break...:)

I just love this place :)

After our break, we went out again and got off on a random  bus stop...just to explore freely...we had a beautiful and long walk through some part of Tokyo....

This is us after we bought a few yummy snacks from an actual super market...I love japanese super markets and stores in general! The cashiers will pack your grocery bag for you...and they do it very neatly and with gusto! You feel so respected as a valued customer! I wish it was like this in germany... But the whole process took a lot longer. I guess in germany the people just want to get the hell out of the supermarket so the cashiers almost throw your stuff off the counter haha! "Give us all your money but get out fast!" :D

My love.... :)

This is one of my favourite drinks...very refreshing...

And of course we head to FamilyMart before going to bed....my midnight snack was Pocky! Hope you liked Tokyo Day 3...!


  1. Tolle Bilder! Ich war noch nie in Japan, möchte aber unbedingt mal dorthin reisen XD
    Nati xx

    1. Danke! Japan haben viele nicht auf dem Radar aber es ist soo ein tolles Land! Und die Menschen sind unschlagbar was die Freundlichkeit betrifft! Bevor man das Zeitliche segnet sollte man einmal in Japan gewesen sein ist meine Meinung! :D

    2. Werde ich bestimmt mal, ich finde Asien allgemein super spannend. Ich habe ein halbes Jahr in China gelebt und es hat mir dort echt richtig gut gefallen (:
