GUESS WHAT WAS ON TV.

Free! Eternal Summer (episode 2). TV Tokyo Station. 12 am (0:00) Thursday.

Yeah.. Thank goodness I was the only one in the kitchen. Hahahh.. So Rin + Makoto = Sousuke. I’ve been sleeping late anyway, SO I’M GOING TO WATCH FREE UNTIL I LEAVE JAPAN. Gotta support the ratings.

Haikyuu!! on Sundays at 5 pm on TBS.

Takadanobaba’s Ore no Hamburger Yamamoto [俺のハンバーグ山本]

My friends and I went to this place for a once a week dinner out. They give you a free juice in a shot glass (paprika, carrots, and something else? forgot) which was really delicious! And then the hamburger was really good! Mine had grated radish on top with ponzu sauce. There, you also get free rice refill and unlimited curry! I didn’t try the curry because I was really full by the end of my meal, but my friend told me it was pretty good (a bit spicy). Definitely recommend this place! It’s about 1200 yen for the set, but it’s really filling and with free rice and curry refills, you definitely get your moneys worth. ^_^

The location is on Waseda Doori, past Takadanobaba Station from Wasada University. There’s a chain conveyor belt sushi on the 1F, and the hamburger shop is on the 2F.

Kagurazaka’s Nanna

I don’t know if you can tell how big these parfaits are, but they’re pretty darn big. lol. Umm, I really wanted to eat one, so I researched a couple places and found this one! I shared with a friend and the other two ate their own. The top part was pretty good, but when you get to the bottom with the warabimochi and custard, it tasted pretty gross. XD. Overall, I’m glad I went to a place in Japan with big parfaits, but I want a place that has pocky AND flan!

Ekoda’s Shamaimu

Really good Israeli food at Ekoda. I got the Regular-sized falafel for ~1400-1600 yen. Soo filling and delicious!

HAIKYUU!! These were in front of Shinjuku’s Animate store. UGH, I. WANT. ALL. OF. THEM. (mostly Asahi), but I got Suga. Not bad. THEY’RE ADORABLE AND FOR 200 YEN A SPIN. This will be the reason why I become broke.
But really, you guys should watch this anime. It’s amazing. I don’t know why they don’t have Yowamushi Pedal ones out.

I’ve been getting a lot of take out and convenience store food because… I’ve been lazy. >_>

Cold ramen at Ebisu.

Fuji Shibazakura Matsuri [富士芝桜祭り] (4/19-6/1)

My friend and I went towards the end of May, but there were still lots of flowers in bloom. That day though, we happened to miss the bus that went directly there and spent extra money on other bus tickets, but every else besides that turned out well! I even met another friend with her family also going to Fujisan. The weather was a bit meh (with Fujisan showing up periodically behind the clouds), but we ended up getting good pictures. Overall, fun day. It’s a bit pricey to go to this place (all the transportation fees), so definitely go when it’s in season, sunny, and from morning —> night!

On the way to a friend’s orchestra concert.

That Saturday morning, Waseda sport clubs were walking on Waseda Doori. I think it was for the 早慶戦 (Waseda vs. Keio Baseball match), but I’m not entirely sure. BTW, Waseda some how lost this year :(.

And when we arrived at Ota-ku, we saw that place’s ゆるチャラ (mascot) crossing the street.. Very normal.
