Thursday 4/1 & Friday 4/2

Thursday 4/1

Today, I woke up at 3:00 took a shower, got dressed, and did a couple last minute making things. We got to the airport around 4:30, got our tickets, and went to our terminal. We got on the plane to depart at 5:40 but was delayed to 6:15.

When we got to Chicago O'Hare airport we had some time to chill, so we noodled around the United Airline part of the airport.

That didn't effect our next flight though, which left at 9:30 and landed at 10:45ish (Chicago time, 1 hour time difference by setting it back). We then took of at 12:15pm and on a Bowing 747 which took 12 hours. In that extended amount of time I watched lots of movies and a bunch of British shows. Some of those movies include Fantastic Mr. Fox, Did You Hear About The Morgans?, and Everybody's Fine.

When we landed we had to go through a hour long immigration line. It was so tiring after a 12 hour flight. Then, we had to change our US Dollars ($) to Yen (¥). Then, we got some food (more like a snack) and bought our bus tickets.

When we got to our apartment we made ourself comfy. Its very modern. It has a mac, a HDTV, Wii, a very comfy couch, and one full sized bed. Its very nice and below is a video and some pictures of it.

Friday 4/2

Today, I woke up around 6:45 and chilaxed until about 9:15. At that time me and my mom left to explore our neighborhood and found a 7/11, Pecce, Yoshinoya (Japanese fast food) (Japanese), and a bunch of other cool places. Later today we went to look at the cherry blossoms, they are so beautiful. Tokyu Hands, WHICH IS A MUST SEE IN JAPAN. It is so awesome. Pet stuff, Toys, Clocks, Posters, Stickers, Writing, Bikes, Magic, Clothing and Interior design. You name it, they have it. They even have a whole floor dedicated to miniatures. Mini people, cars, trains, planes, and Star Wars characters even!
