Yihaaaa, I get to hang out again with my japanese painter friend, Kanna 😀
This time she took me to Akihabara.
I’m no anime/manga geek or gadget fanatic, but since I’m here, why not look for stuff connected to “Death Note.” It’s an anime series that i got totally hooked on when I was living in Paris. It was A who introduced it to me, he even gifted me a young “L” seated on a chair and a miniature “Near” 🙂
Kanna and i went around different establishments, up and down different floors, filled with so much toys and collectibles. Alas, there were not really many “death note” toys to choose from. We were told that it was too old, haha, so we got out of the building empty handed.
But, the universe has its way of not letting that happen 😀 Saw a street market outside and discovered these handmade miniature leather boots!
Huwow halukatdat :D
How can I resist such cuteness?!
Kanna asked me if i wanted to have lunch at a maid cafe since there are a lot of those here in Akihabara. Well, I’m actually okay not to experience it. Then, we saw this small nondescript resto run by 3 old ladies. It looks cozy inside and the people seems to be enjoying their meals.
Ok, so dizizit! I ordered a seafood katsu while kanna had some pork or chicken katsu, i think. It’s interesting that it was served with rice and spaghetti, how filipino! haha 😀 I asked kanna if that was traditional, she said not really.
The food was good and before we left, I stood by the doorway and announced to the ladies – THE FOOD WAS OISHI! They all giggled and thanked me 😉 Ahhh, I really love discovering restaurants like this. With these lovely ladies serving us, it felt like we were in a family home.
What I love about Tokyo is that each district has its own character. You can find a place and claim it your own. My favorite so far is the back streets of Harajuku, though Akihabara is not really the place for me, I still did find some things that caught my fancy.
