It's my last set of photos from Japan, and it's not really a spectacular one either sorry. Just a few images. The last three days in Tokyo I only really took photos on the tuesday.

Monday the weather was rainy, and I can't really remember what we did. Maybe Shibuya again? I really don't remember. We ended up going out again at night though, as the day after was a national holiday in Japan. It's ridiculous, because I never go out to bars and clubs here in Paris. We didn't stay all night, but it was fun.

Then the next day is where these photos are from. I went by myself to Harajuku to meet up with my mixed Japanese/Swiss friend from flickr, Dennis, who was also visiting Tokyo while we were there. Really nice guy! We ended up going back to the Yoyogi park again, just hanging out. There was this funny moment when two Japanese girls appeared with some question sheets they had made for foreigners in their English class. Half was about what I thought about Japan and Tokyo, but then the last half was all about what kind of girls I like and "Do you tell your girlfriend you love her?" lol. It was a bit confusing at first, but Dennis is fluent in Japanese so he explained them how it was difficult to answer for me :P After that we met up with Jun and Mina by Takeshita Street. Dennis left then, but I hung out with Jun & Mina for a good few hours, eating at Yoshinoya and just sitting around in a coffee shop thing in Shibuya. She's a dancer too, and she was in Paris before, but she is back in Tokyo now with a company there. Then around....10(?)...we met up with Sam, Lolo, Hugo, and also Thomas, the French guy from the other day, and another Japanese girl. Thomas took us to this super cool place hidden in a Shibuya alley. Tiny tiny, and filled with random cool stuff. So nice! AND when exiting it turned out the ground floor was filled with Norwegian guys lol. That was so bizarre... We stopped by an arcade for a while after that, doing the purikura photo booth thing and playing some games, but then everybody went home.

Oh my god, I never type this much.


The last day was pretty uneventful. We went again to Omotesando, and I walked with Sam from there to Roppongi, stopping at the Aoyama cemetary. We wanted to check out the view from the Mori building, but it was so expensive and there was not much money left, so we skipped it and went back to pack. Later at night we met up with Jun for one last dinner, and said goodbye to him. I feel like we are always saying goodbye to him :(

So yes, that was it. The travel back home was long and boring. Sorry for all these entries with overly detailed descriptions of what we were doing. "And then, and then, and then...". It's so I can remember when I look back as well.
