OSAKA/ TOKYO AUTUMN ITINERARY 2014: DAY 7- TOKYO! Coco Ichibanya/ Asakusa/ Kappabashi/ Tokyo Skytree & the Worst Meal I've Had in Tokyo

By Vegsmoothiebunny
AHHHHHH!!!!
It's day 7 in Tokyo and we're up and well rested after a taxing time the day before. As the sunlight streams into the place, it looks small and cosy instead of dark and dingy and we emerge freshly showered and hungry right into the heart of Shibuya. A hop, skip and jump and we find ourselves right at my favorite place in the whole of Tokyo-- the junction where Loft meets Forever 21 (down the road leads to Tokyu Hands and 3 coins) and right infront of us is Coco Ichibanya.

Look at the shrimp :D
We spent the rest of the day wandering Asakusa and taking in the quaint 'historical' streets of Tokyo!

I'd spend a large part of the trip coercing encouraging my fellow companions to visit Kappabashi with me! If you are into food or kitchen ware, you MUST visit kappabashi- dori! It's AMAZING. I want to live there! Haha

We even found a really industrial- minimalist chic cafe in the heart of all the steel utensils and catering trays!

Pretty store retailing honey and tea that my friends wanted to buy souvenirs at so I wandered down the road because I caught sight of a...

FRUIT AND VEG STORE!!! Look at the veg! They are just so insanely beautiful and bright and makes you feel so good just LOOKING at them. Imagine how good they'd be for your body! And to be honest, it's been almost a week of (too) good food and I was longing for something simpler and fresh already. Haha.
After wandering around a little more, I brought my friends to Daikokoya for Tempura because this place is really famous and I wanted my friends to experience it even though I don't really like it. Hahaha. I like my tempura freshly fried and totally crisp and dry but the 'traditional' way of eating it here is soaked in the sauce. It's still good but I like the crunch of fried food! Haha My friends loved it though so I guess it's just me. :(

By the time we were done with dinner, the sun had set which left us just a little bit of time to wander a little bit more, buy more souvenirs and head to our last stop of the day!

Our last stop for the day is Tokyo Sky Tree! We went there to buy souvenirs coz it's a haven for it + they have a whole bunch of really cool stores there! One of my favourites is Burrows and Sun which is a Scandinavian- designed store carrying lots of zakka products and other apparels!

Moomin Cafe is there too, if you are into those characters! It was hilarious seeing 'lonely' patrons feel not so lonely because they were sitting next to a mega moomin character at their table!
Back at Shibuya we were craving Shabu-shabu so we went in search of one!

I stopped eating 2 mouthfuls into the meal because the soup was clearly just ajinomoto and water and my tastebuds were screaming suicide. This has got to be the worst meal I've ever had in Japan. I'm not trying to be racist or anything but this restaurant was clearly run by Chinese nationals and tasted more like a Chinese buffet (and hence catered towards Chinese tastes, perhaps?) rather than the more delicate flavourings I've come to associate Japan with. Bleargh. Just thinking about the meal now makes me feel a little sick.. and thirsty. Haha.

It was the night before Halloween so Shibuya was crazy! The roads were packed and everyone was totally dressed up and it wasn't even Halloween yet! What an opportunity to experience Shibuya during Halloween!
