shop 'til you drop

Thursday, Val and I planned to check out to the shopping mall that is under Tokyo station.

On my way to meet her at her hotel, I witnessed the train staff "jamming" commuters onto the subway...it really does happen eep!

While roaming the many areas of the shopping mall, she bought some items and then we headed across town to Shibuya.

They have a One Piece shop located in the Marui Department Store.

One Piece is a manga (Japanese comic series).

She was interested in finding some souvenirs for one of her sons.

Then it was two doors up to Tower Records...it had been ages since I had set foot into a CD shop.

I was surprised that Tower Records was still around...though I have a feeling they only exists in Japan....

We were starving at this point and popped into J.S. Burgers Cafe for lunch.

I ordered the Maple Butter BLT...and was surprised that my BLT was topped with a pat of butter and drizzle of maple syrup...

I have given up on eating crispy bacon in Japan and accept the thick Canadian type of ham "bacon" that is served...

This had way too much grainy mustard in it but I was glad that the bread and fries were crispy...I want to go back to try the burgers.

And then it was back out for more shopping...

It was a whirlwind stay for Val, the weather was nice...I hope she had a nice time and was able to buy everything she came to Japan for.

Wow, Tower Records! I remember back in the day when that was the closest place to go buy concert tickets. But that's ahem, 20+ years ago
