Before I continue I must note that even though I didn’t get shoes in my size in Tokyo (Japanese women have small feet and shoes basically only went to size 8) and only not much clothing (boobs too big), I was on the hunt for a particular color of nail polish. While right now we are reveling in purple and Blue nail polish, I think one of the next hot colors is Grey, not Silver but Grey. Throughout my trip, I searched and searched all over. I had Matt go into every nail salon and any store that had a beauty section to no avail but on the day before I was to leave Tokyo, I hit the jackpot…..yea!!! Below is a photo of my Grey nail polish
Anyway, back to the tourist in me. As I stated before, Matt took me just about everywhere. We went to Harajuku, Shinjinku, ODaiba, etc. There was this place in Odaiba (also called Daiba) called Palette Town. It is a man-made island which has a huge shopping center, concert hall, Car theme park, etc. They even had a huge ferris wheel and believe it or not, a smaller version of the Statue of Liberty
We also did some walking along Japans version of 5th Ave. I didn’t take any photos of the actual stores but it’s exactly what you’d expect – Gucci, Valentino, Prada, etc but I did take some photos of the area
First thing, you can see a little bit of a Zima wall hanging there, yep Zima. It still exists, at least in Japan. They also LOVE, I mean LOVE rap and hip hop music. We spent about four or five hours dancing to mostly dirty south music (seriously). I had to ask the DJ to play some east coast hip hop.
I took some video of people dancing at the club (it’s a bit dark but bear with me). Both include a guy who came straight from the office – suit, briefcase and all; he took off his jacket and just started getting down
Anyway, Matt pointed out something crazy to me. It seems there are some men in Japanese who try to pick up women off the street, just regular women and pay them to have sex with them or try to get them to do pornos. I took a photo of two guys and they were trying to pick up women right in front of us (I have indicated them with yellow arrows in the photo below).
