The Lazy Man’s Way to Tokyo, Day 6

Good weather again.

And an interesting opportunity had arisen. I had the chance to go to a birthday party full of Japanese female flight attendants. Don’t ask how these things happen to me, they just do.

But first, the train ride to the party, there was this awesome photo opportunity:

That’s a dude in a red school-girl uniform. Check the pic for further smiles.

In actuality, it was at a pretty serene location. Some small, out-of-the-way Italian restaurant. Featuring some pop-art fountain in the front…

(being a 30th birthday party, it involved alcohol, lots of it.)

….And fireworks. You can’t tell from this picture, but it actually lists the ingredients on the package.

The food was authentic Italian fare. So authentic in fact, that it didn’t warrant any pictures. There was no Japanese special flair to them or anything.

I think that was the birthday girl (the one sitting down wearing black).

Later on, we threw an impromptu (fake) 合コン. This is where girls and guys (usually equal in number) sit around a table, introduce themselves, get drunk, and hopefully meet the person of their dreams to go on a date with. Good times.

When I finally stumbled home, I noticed this big building’s shining light:

That’s the SEGA building. Full of game developing people. It’s a good feeling to know I’m not alone in the world. 🙂

Good night!

Go back to Day 5.

Continue on to Day 7.
