39 pics from Tokyo

I have been having a nice weekend in Tokyo. Lots of people, lots of heat, lots of fake eyelashes, lots of long hair-extensions, lots of hats, lots of bleached orange hair, lots of feminine dudes and lots of crappy unhealthy western food.
I dont care to sort these pics so they are not chronological in any ways.


SEGA-store. 7 floors of crazy people who probably spend years in this building trying to beat their own record in one of the thousands games.


This made me turn around in two seconds. Not my toilet-style. And yes, its the girls-room.

Aquarium in Sunshine City. Its 3 huge buildings with millions of stores and things to do.

This is crazyness. They sell LIVING reptiles in Toys'r'us!





Pure cafe is THE place to eat nice vegan breakfast.


Normal amount of people over the cross-road.

In this second-hand store in Harajuku you will definitely find somthing you like.

MANEKI NEKO!



Visit Shimokitazawa after 2pm. Its a really cute area with loads of thrift-stores but make sure you are not visiting 10am in the morning.

Dog with hair-extensions.






This is the worst thing i have ever seen. A shop called Babydoll! They were selling tiny tiny cats and dogs who should have been with their mommy. I couldn't stand this and i tried talking to the people in the shop, but they didnt speak a word english. The tiny babies where lying around in small glass-boxes with no food nor water. They seemed so bored and listless and some where scratching to get out. I started crying and had to get out of there.


Siberian!
Its business-time
This should probably have been the first pic. Started the trip with eating lunch with mom and dad who was on vacation in Copenhagen, before the plane headed to Tokyo.

It doesn't seem like you're having much fun in Tokyo. I hope you liked America better when you both came here. I liked your caption on the photo of you sleeping on the plane. haha.

Tokyo was okay but so much stress since we wanted to see everything in few days. America with you was definitely more fun than tokyo. Tokyo was more a walking/taking pics-trip, almost like our first trip to america when we didnt have you there. :))

I hate trips like that, but its almost inevitable. If you have a short time and don't know too much of what to do it can really suck. Maybe next time you go will be amazing! Perhaps I can go with you and Øyvind next time!

Var i Barcelona for to år siden og da gikk jeg og forbi en dyrebutikk der hunder og katter lå inni hvert sitt tiny little bur - de så så slitne og nesten døde ut - helt forferdelig, vi skulle ha sendt brev til Verdens Dyreorganisasjon og få slike butikker stengt.

synne: ja det er helt jævlig å se på. jeg skjønner ikke at folk har samvittighet til å holde på sånn. Det er jo verdt å sende brev, men tror nok det er gjort mange ganger før. Tror at slike butikker ikke er registrert noen steder..det kan jo ikke være lovlig å drive på slik.
