Last weekend, I went out every day. For me that’s a bit tiring -___-;; So I went to Shinjuku on Saturday, and Koishi Korakuen + Akihabara on Sunday.
I went out to buy souvenirs and stuff for people at Shinjuku. I went to Yodobashi Kamera and Tokyu Hands. I got the tablet thingy my bf had wanted, and lugged it around everywhere. I think I made a mistake in buying that first. So heavy.
Anyway, I LOVE being in Tokyu Hands. There’s so many interesting stuff there. I found cute straps like food samples like this:
If I had more money, I would’ve bought everything I liked XD But I don’t so… After that I hung around at Kinokuniya next door. Oh so many books I want to buy… But I went back home empty handed cos I KNEW I didn’t have any more space in my suitcase.
On Sunday I went to Koishikawa Korakuen. Why, you ask? I saw on late night weather forecasts that this place was filled with irises! It was so pretty. I actually wanted to go the previous weekend (before this one), but it rained. And I was lazy to go out in the rain.
It’s located in between Iidabashi and Suidobashi (near Tokyo Dome). And the website boasted pretty flowers and sakura. When I got there, there were a lot of renovations and most of the irises were gone. So sad. But I was my fault that I went when everything was out of season. The hydrangeas outside the park (how odd) were in full bloom though!
Here is the pics for the inside of the park:
And here are the hydrangeas outside:
At least I got to see pretty hydrangeas! After that I went to Akihabara to find remaining souvenirs. I was looking for Gachapon. I got several cute things:
I got lots, right!! Hahah. There was a funny story, while I was putting all my coins in the One Piece gachapon machine. One of my coins got stuck. When I put in some other coins… the gachapon didn’t come out! So I asked the store guy to fix it, and then he said “This is your coin. Pick what you like.” Damn right, I’m picking what I like! 😀 I don’t have to meddle with luck anymore! I picked out two Luffys and one Nami. No Zoro, boohoo.
After that I ate takoyaki for.. lunch and dinner, and then went home :3
