Dudes, I know we totally landed in Tokyo.. but somehow.. ALL OF IT LOOKS LIKE DISNEY!

Our hotel is so freaking boss, we just back from eating breakfast cause the sun rises at 4:30 AM. Its like.. 8 AM now? Lol my sleep schedule is normal, wtf.

Okay what else. WE'RE GOING TO NERDCENTRAL Akihabara today to look at animu crap and then we're going to the ABSOLUT ICE BAR.

We've gotten foodstuff already.. giant motherfuckin' sushi rolls (they were...HUGE, no joke.) and I got takoyaki at the airport.. which was.. OMNOMNOM.

So, one thing that I know I'm going to have trouble here is the language. I forgot my phrasebook at home, so I'm kinda hoping people know some sort of broken English so I can get by. I've been doing okay with my nani desu ka? and dozo and domo and all this other random crap Japanese I've picked up from anime (derp, weeaboo). I asked the hotel lady that was at breakfast what something was and it went like this:

Me: *points to bowl with stuff* Nani desu ka?
Lady: WORDSWORDSWORDSWORDSGOHANWORDSWORDSWORDS
ME: OH! RICE!
Lady: Hai!
Me: OMNOMNOM.

Its so surreal to be here though. I want my damn women's panties from vending machines.

I need to pick up a card reader for my camera, so expect videos some point tonight (my time). So exciting...

Renee is really excited to be here, she keeps reminding me every 2 minutes that we're in Japan.

Glad to see you two got there safe and sound and are having an awesome time so far!

(By the way, it's actually "Nan desu ka" instead of "nani desu ka" 'cause the i is dropped before "desu"... sorry grammar nerd here. ^^; )
