DAY 3: Harajuku, Tokyo Tower, Shibuya.

Okay, we started our day with the phone and simcard registration at SoftBank Harajuku. Nothing much we did there, just taking photos of new, sophisticated and elegant model of mobile phones in Japan while waiting for the registration to be done.

The mobile phone shop- SoftBank

Some of the mobile phones in the store

After the simcard registration, we went straight to Tokyo Tower. It took almost 1 hour to go from Harajuku to Tokyo Tower. The entrace fee is 800yen approx RM32. We stayed at Tokyo Tower till night coz we wanted to see the sunset, and yeah it was awesome! Watching the sunset from Tokyo Tower, and it was sooo romantic indeed. awwww~ hahaha:P

Since it already night, and it was really2 cold (oh yeah, it was winter, remember?), we decided to go home. but then, I was so kempunan nk minum starbucks, then we went to Starbucks at Shibuya. Oh well, fyi, Shibuya is the one of the BUSIEST junctions in the WORLD. and yeah, it really makes sense to me coz..OMG..orang ramai gile mcm semut! serious, xtipu. I ordered blended mocha cream, and it was awesomeeeeee!! oh oh, the price was 450 yen which is approx RM15. not bad,huh?

Shinjuku- one of the busiest junction in the world

DAY 4: Tokyo Dome, Venus Fort.

Early in the morning, we already went out to Tokyo Dome coz it was quite far away from our place in Saitama. There, we got to see the aquarium, roller coaster, ferris wheel, Tokyo Dome - for football match (I think.haha), etc. after taking some photos (coz the surrounding was great), we ride on ferris wheel and we headed straight to Abortfort. We took the monorail and we could see various kind of attractions like Rainbow bridge, Ferris Wheel (again, but this time more beautiful and bigger), the fake of Statue of Liberty, etc. Then we took off at Venus Fort which is a shopping mall but the inner side was designed look like u were in Italy. The buildings, shops, street, etc. and yeah, it was a very good experience!
