I was just browsing through my day 4 photos and I realised there are not a lot taken that day so I decided to edit and do this post up spontaneously. I spent 4 straight hours filtering and editing because my laptop was giving me problems (laughs)
Anyway, it's 4.17am now, will probably be around 4.45 by the time I get all the photos uploaded and pasted here with translations...
Well, here you go, Day 4 of my Japan trip last year (I know... trying to rush through as you can see, so I can get to this year's two trips!)
Chapter 18: Harajuku
We woke up early so we can get to Tokyo early.
I am alone for this part~
Of course, my first stop will be Harajuku!
It's time for some shopping!
Chapter 19: Mitaka
I only had around an hour of alone time so I couldn't finish my shopping.
I did not buy much. I only managed to head down Takeshita Street and Laforet Harajuku.
I didn't get to walk around Omotesando... Such a pity. Well, it's okay.
I will definitely return during my next trip to Japan!
Next venue was Studio Ghibli Museum in Mitaka! The tickets go on sale a specific dates and
you can purchase for specific dates and time. Also, do note that you will not be able to use
the ticket you purchased to enter on any other time or date besides the one stated on your
ticket. Therefore, to everyone who is interested in heading here, do remember to buy your
tickets in advance. You can purchase it at LAWSON. Do buy and print your ticket using the
Loppi machine in the LAWSON convenience store~
Top left is the timetable for the bus to the Museum from Mitaka Station.
Note that the museum does not allow photography inside.
Such a pity because it was really pretty inside.
Before this trip, I have never seen snow before.
Therefore, I was very excited during that time whenever I saw snow!
After the Studio Ghibli Museum, it was some alone time again.
In other words, shopping time!
I went to the popular Shibuya!
Only after I arrived at Shibuya did I realise that I have yet to eat anything for the day.
Therefore, my first place was...
Ma Maison's Pasta and Ice chocolate were delicious~
To be honest, I love shopping alone (laughs)
When I am shopping alone, if I see something i like, I will buy it immediately.
I do not need others' opinions at all.
It is definitely not lonely at all!
Am I weird?
Doing this (shopping alone) makes me feel free and I like that.
After I was done with my own shopping, I went to the WC store to help Tsuriki get
some stuff. Before I returned to the hotel, I went to see the Hachiko statue first.
There you go, day 4!
I didn't do much photo taking because firstly, the museum did not allow it and secondly, I don't think it is polite to be snapping away in a shop when you are shopping.
Also, do check out this link
for those interested in heading over to the Studio Ghibli Museum.
It shows you how to purchase the ticket from the Loppi machine in Lawson.
I will recommend those who want to head down to buy the ticket on your first day in Japan (you can only purchase the ticket in Japan) as you can only buy tickets within 10 days from the date itself if I am not wrong (E.g if you are there on the 4th, you can buy tickets for 4th - 14th) and there is also the risk of tickets being sold out (only limited amount of tickets are up for sale each day).
Also, note that if you purchased tickets for, let's say 4th of August & entry at 2pm, you will not be able to use the ticket to go at any other day or time.
Sorry, I am very sleepy now on top of having fever so I don't even know if I am typing right (laughs)
