There are a few essential things to do, as soon as you arrive in Tokyo. Take a photo of the big crossing in Shibuya for example. Or go shopping in the always crowded Takeshita-dori in Harajuku. Or drink an ice cold Asahi Super Dry in Yoyogi Park, where you can watch drama students going crazy and cute couples staring embarrassedly into the nearby pond.
To tell some “crazy” stories about our journey when we come home again, we visited a cat café right in Shibuya. It’s called Hapi Neko. You pay like $10 each for half an hour to touch the cats. One drink included. That sounds like a great experience, doesn’t it? Yeah… Unfortunately the pussies weren’t quite as excited as Christine and I were.
While we enjoyed our mango juice and tried, together with some other people, to get our paws onto their fur, they hid under the table, pretended to sleep or looked at us like they’re gonna exterminate our whole family, as soon as they find out their addresses. But to be honest: I couldn’t blame them. And now come here, kitty, kitty, it’s fuckin’ photo time!
