Getting off our 4 hour flight, we're cranky, excited, and (above all) starving. So we make our way to the hotel via subway to dump our luggage and go scout out a place to eat.
Thankfully, one of the area's best restaurants is a stone's throw away from our doorstep.
Finally seated and sorted with English menus, we scan, randomly point to and order several dishes.
A Japanese omelette
It has shredded fish sprinkled atop a pile of ramen, caramelized veg and a raw egg with a unique twist - the shredded fish is still moving.
Completely taken aback, slightly nauseous but so incredibly intrigued by this dish, we dive and find that it is one of the best stir fries ever to touch our tongues.
Full to the brim we waddled out of the restaurant only slightly drunk on sake but decided to make room for some ice cream because why not.
The next morning, we wake up sometime around 9 to get a head start on exploring the city.
Cameras at the ready, everything seems picture-worthy.
Literally everything we see is 10x more unique than anything we've seen before.
Especially considering this straight-out-of-France bakery/restaurant right round the corner from the subway station.
Fueled up we make our way to the subway and ride over to Ginza - one of the major shopping areas.
Crazy / funky / far out / what-have-you, these shoes made me know love at first sight is a very real thing.
