Full of expression -- It is exciting Vending machine very enjoyable. Please try to get it once.

On Thursday we went to Tokyo Imperial Palace Gardens in the center of Tokyo. Of course we couldn't walk into the Inner Gardens, as the Emperor actually lives there, but the East Gardens are open to the public. The whole area is surrounded by a huge moat and thick, high stone walls that have been restored, and there are also remains of the old Edo Castle that was destroyed by a fire. The main reason for going there though is the gardens!

After this we took the metro to Ginza, a seriously high end part of Tokyo, where we went window shopping.
It is in fact SO fancy, that they have a store for schmucks only!

In one of the department stores we found a shop that sold nothing but Hello Kitty items..

Yesterday we met Naomi, a girl from my class back home, went to Harajuku and Shibuya and almost drowned. The weather was so crappy the camera didn't want to get out for that one. Instead, Naomi tricked me into doing the most girly and glittery thing ever; purikura. They are insanely girly booths where you take pictures of yourself and your friends, and glitter them up. (y)
Later today it seems we're going to the other part of the Disney Resort; Disney Sea. Whopee!
Also, I haven't watched Star Trek since we left home. I miss Star Trek. And Pepsi Max.
