What's Jappaning Pt 6 (Looking For Blow)

Chillllllll everyone! I'm talking about Blowfish! We'll get to that later.

The hardest part about traveling so far (for me at least) is getting some really good sleep. Well the biggest challenge for our first time traveler (Marteena) she has to sleep in a room with 3 snoring men and I snore the loudest (as I was told). So she ain't getting much sleep too. I realize I can't sleep well anywhere beside my bed. I don't do sleep over and sleeping anywhere else is just a no no for me. I can pull a 3-4 hour sleep and after that I will just toss and turn the rest of the night and checking my phone for time every 30 minutes, yes, every 30 minutes. And I'm usually the last person to hop into bed since I like to whip up this blog post before I go to sleep. 

We left Nagano early in the morning, we got up before the receptionist was even operational! So we couldn't catch a shuttle to the bus stop to get an early start. 

Dead, Marteena getting a few second of sleep in the Lobby since the hotel is still sleeping!

Since the next Shuttle won't be available till 8 am we decided to mine as well eat their continental breakfast. 

Not everything we eat is super fancy haha. Was it good? Lets just say we appreciate free food.

I thought we would take a nap and rest up a bit after returning home from Nagano but nah, we took showers and got ready to go out. Back to Shibuya for dinner, for the third time. Shibuya is a really dope place, full of fashion and interesting people to watch. My homegirl Megan who just moved to Japan had some time to meet up with us!

So back to the topic, Robert and I have always wanted to try Blowfish. Now that we're in Japan, we wanted to cross that out of our bucket list! We do not know what it'll taste like and how much it would cost. We didn't care, we wanted to try it! 

My brother ended up meeting up with his boss's friend and while he was having dinner with him, we (Robert, Marteena, and Megan) chilled inside the bar drinking and eating appetizer. It was the best way to stay warm. 

Some shit we didn't order but kept it anyways. This is what you get when you don't speak Japanese. OH! Megan spoke Japanese but some how we managed to fuck it up anyways haha.

We found there's more to fashion in Shibuya. We found an alley full of food!!! We will definitely be checking that out tomorrow! 

We found Taco Bell! Their menus was slightly different. They served beers and stuff with shrimp.

Fugu (Blowfish) skin in chopped chives and some sauce and I don't know what that red thing is but "fuck that's delicious." I ate Marteena's bowl because she ain't down for that raw fish.

They only have Fugu on the menu so it kinda sucked for our friends who weren't planning to eat Fugu. Luckily had these! Fried Fugu skin which was really good. Kinda like pork rinds. We also ordered Fugu Karaage too.

This shit was still twitching. This was thrown into the hot pot which was not bad at all. We had dipping sauce for the Fugu which made everything taste so much better with more flavors.

Can't tell but to the bottom right hand corner is the hot pot.

After we finished the hot pot, the waiter came in to whip something up using the broth in front of us. Great way of not wasting food. He dumped rice in it, then eggs and a tea spoon of soy sauce. What we get from it is magic ya'll. It was surprisingly good! Like a egg drop soup basically.

We left the restaurant and headed to the subway station. But of course we made a few stops on the way.
