Day 2, up bright and early
Lovely blue sky
In the elevator, waiting to say hi to Tokyo
Our quick breakfast in the subway station
Beautiful presentation, quality so-so, but that’s expected given the location of purchase.
A small shop selling various flavors of vinegar drinks
Aiden is awaiting some action.
Government building on the right, there was a tourist that asked us for directions.
Air is nice and floors are clean.
We are waiting for a restaurant to open and just hanging out here in the meantime.
Aiden is having fun running about and checking this place out.
He finally gets to get off the stroller and move about.
Who knew he would have so much fun with the vending machine
What a good resting spot – able to rest and let him run around.
But we couldn’t go to the restaurant Daddie had planned for us.
It was fully booked.
So instead we went to eat Seafood BBQ.
Salmon sashimi for Aiden and shellfish for us!
Shrimp was just okay but the 蟹膏miso paste was very tasty.
Gotta wait for them to cook the food though.
They were very good at first, but was slow to come help us so Galen did the cooking towards the end.
Aiden also ate the scallops – delicious!
Shopping in Shinjuku
Too much for Aiden on our first full day.
He wanted to sleep through dinner.
We are at 魚心
We went to 魚心 in Osaka and Kyoto.
We thought Aiden would like the warm fatty melt-in-your mouth salmon, but he didn’t.
I didn’t quite like their shellfish.
He was a little more into it when we allowed him to brush soy sauce on the sushi.
He was still a little cranky but at least was willing to eat.
Tamago for Aiden – check!
But we also ordered regular salmon sashimi for Aiden. He much preferred that and even tried the salmon roe.
It was a pretty light meal – I think we were still a little full from lunch.
We didn’t stay out too late today
I think we are all a little tired from the plane ride.
Lots of people on the street.
Shopping at Daimaru, a $10000 yen melon. Daddie wanted to try so bad.
Black sesame ice cream
Midnight snack back at our hotel room.
Scallop and sweets
Oh so satisfying!
