What's Jappaning Now Pt. 1 (First Day)

My second attempt to write this blog before I lose my cool. Everything I wrote was deleted due to my lap top crashing. It's been doing that, it's a great thing considering I bought this MacBook Pro specifically for blogging and editing videos and all it does is crash. Fuck you Apple! Fuck you! 

Not a smooth start to this trip. It feels much more harder than the last, like we've never done this shit before. It took us almost 24 hours to get to Japan because we decided to have a lay over in China in hopes we get to explore Beijing a little but for some reason 3 hour lay over turned out to be one hour. That doesn't even give us enough time to hop onto the next plane to Japan! So we ran, from one plane to the other. I had my heavy ass pack back on with my heavy ass duffle bag and this shit was not easy. Fortunately we made it to Japan, very late, we were very tired. The house we're staying in much smaller than the last and it's hard to navigate around the house with three other grown ups in it without bumping into shit. Oh, did I mention they lost Robert's luggage? Yeah, not smooth at all. 

Spent our first official day in Japan exploring our neighborhood a bit. Did not go for a run this time like last time but Dook managed to do so, and Gina. Oh yeah, Gina is the new girl in the group for this trip. Travel in fours I guess, I hate odd numbers. We covered a lot of stuff today and I can't even remember much considering how tired I am right now so I'll just leave it to the photos with caption to tell the rest of the story. Gotta wake up super early Sunday morning to catch a train to Osaka, so hopefully things lighten up a bit so I can fully enjoy this trip. Not entirely a bad day, just a rough start. 

Dook got a hair cut first thing in the morning not too far from this location.

I've been dreaming of these things since the last time I had it and couldn't find any from three different locations. Finally found some inside of Tokyu Store, not the same but it was good enough, I guess.

Found this cool coffee shop to chill a bit and reflect over a cup of coffee.

We headed back home to see how Robert was doing and found out they located his luggage and ready for pick up at 2:30pm. We left the house together to get our train pass for Osaka and had lunch at Akihabara. 

This is Dook's favorite noodle place, we still do not know the name. And I'm not even sure of the official name of the noodle but we call it Oil Noodles. It's basically fucking amazing.

First you make your order on this machine and then find an empty seat before you hand the ticket to the chef.

Behold! The Oil Noodles! Add some of their red sauce (spicy) to add more flavor and heat to it.

While I was geeking over this Carl's Jr in Japan Gina comes banging on my shoulders in excitement. I turned around to see what the fuck she was soooooo excited about it and she points to the Cat Cafe haha. It cost money to get in and drink coffee or tea with some cats and you have to be in there for 30 mins. Since us guys have no interest in cats we went to the third floor for beer, and air soft guns!!!

I didn't know New York had their own beer, this was pretty good but did not taste like your typically IPA.

I wanted to get drunk to see how well I can still shoot but I didn't have enough beers. This cost about $10 for 10 minutes for two. You can either compete to see who shoots those targets the fastest or shoot eachother. We shot the targets instead, I won.
