Five days in Japan already? Felt like five seconds to me
Day Six was going to be spent in Odaiba before heading to the airport! As I mentioned in the previous post, I’d never been to this part of Tokyo before so I was looking forward to going around the attractions.
Odaiba is famous for their modern attractions like the Venus Fort shopping mall and Joypolis!
They have fantastic views too.
We headed to Aqua City, a huge shopping mall, in the morning.
The first thing I saw was the Statue of Library
What’s it doing in Tokyo? It’s a replica! Good enough for someone like me who has never seen the original before.
Venus Fort was spectacular! It’s made in medieval style, so you feel like you’re in Rome or somewhere similar when you enter. The ceilings are all decorated to look like a sky.
Before my trip, I’d discovered a service where you could rent dogs at Venus Fort and I was extremely excited about that…until I found out that the service no longer existedVenus Fort had a large section on the first floor devoted to pets, but only a pet store, a pet clothing boutique and training park remained. I’d gotten more and more excited as I saw more designer puppies trotting down the shopping mall with their humans, only to discover I couldn’t rent any.
Oh well, I had a lot of fun at the pet shop looking at the puppiesIs there a reason why the puppies and kittens I saw in Japan were infinitely cuter than any others I’ve ever seen?
(This was the same place Mai, Chisa and Nakky visited in Hello Pro! Time)
This is the second time I’m spamming photos of animals. But they’re cute, so it’s okayThe puppies were the cutest things ever. I spent a good half hour there looking at all of them and wishing I could just pluck one out.
Even though I couldn’t rent a dog, I loved seeing the puppies.
Our train to the airport was due in a short while, so we didn’t have time to shop around for much longer. There were so many clothing stores, but everything was so expensiveSeriously, one day I have to save up and go to Tokyo purely to shop. (and sleep in hostels and eat cup noodles)
We said goodbye to our hotel and headed to the station after that! I felt pretty sad because in a few hours I wasn’t going to be in Japan anymore. Nostalgia was hitting me hard, and I hadn’t even left the country yet.
At the airport, we did some last minute gift shopping! There was a Tsutaya there selling loads of magazines and CDs, but I had majorly overspent on this trip so I didn’t feel like I should buy anything more.
When we started boarding the plane, I didn’t feel like flying home at all. The past six days had been insanely fun, extraordinaryーeverything that I expected and more. I spend so many days at home living at the Internet and wishing I could be in Japan; spending a week there was a huge blessing and I’m hugely grateful to my parents for bringing me there. There’s just so many things in Japan that I love, and breathing in their culture for myself is one of the greatest experiences ever.
S/mileage, the maid cafe, cute animals, Kyoto and everything and everyone else that let me enjoy myself so much…I’ll always remember everything!
Next goal: Save up for my own trip there!
Thank you so much for reading my Japan ☆ posts! Even though I took so long. Really, thank you!
