The Lazy Man’s Way to Tokyo, Day 18

Ow. My head hurts. I’m never drinking again 😉

Went to Yokohama for lunch. Went to some Hawaiian place called Aloha Table. It had a nice balcony and decent food.

It also had a juice/tea/coffee bar. It’s been a long time since I’ve had mango or guava juice.

lunch3

Here was my dish. It’s basically an egg on top of a hamburg steak and rice.

lunch4

This was a salad with… all sorts of stuff in it. The bread on the right side was really fresh and was possibly the best tasting part of the meal. 🙂

lunch5

When the sun started to go down I caught a good view of the Fuji-Xerox building (no they didn’t merge, it’s a joint venture for distribution in Japan):

Shopped around Yokohama for awhile (there are like 5 shopping malls on every corner of Yokohama station) and got a better pic of the USB aroma diffuser thing I mentioned earlier:

usbaroma

Pretty cheap price at $20, I might just have to pick one up 🙂

Met up with a Swedish friend of mine (whom I met in Hungary) who works for Ikea in Japan; and proceeded to an Izakaya 居酒屋 were we consumed mass quantities of food and liquid happiness.

I have no idea what the following was:

I think I liked it though.

rolls

Vegetable roll-thing in Rice paper stuff.

friedcheese

Fried Mozzarella is an international staple.

gyoza

Blurry pic of 餃子 Gyouza. Err… what is it in English? Pot-stickers?

steak

Steak makes me happy.

You must be careful when ordering at an Izakaya to not order too much at the same time, otherwise the food won’t fit on the table 🙂

veggiepizza

Blurry pic of what was advertised as a Pizza. What came was a giant cracker with a salad on top.

dessert1

Dessert 1. Icecream and Strawberries and some bits of awesomeness that I can’t define.

dessert2

Dessert 2. Whoever decided to use Belgian waffles as dessert was a genius.

Spent the night on the 25th floor of some really tall building. Some views from the balcony at night:

Woke up and checked the fridge for hangover cures this morning and found that the fridge door opens on both sides:

Super cool. I’m envious.

On a clear day (people always use this excuse), you can supposedly see Mt. Fuji from here:

Of course, it wasn’t a clear day 🙂

じゃあ〜 I’m off to 銀座 (Ginza, super expensive district) for browsing snobby shops a fancy-schmancy dinner (I gotta wear a tie?!) and, I really, really hope (still) some カラオケ (Kara= Empty Oke= Orchestra) 😉

バイバイ〜!

Go back to Day 17.

Continue on to Day 19.
