Somewhat Thwarted

Hm. Well, I made it out of a YARN STORE in JAPAN ... WITHOUT BUYING YARN. The agony. I just didn't see much I felt was worth taking home, alas. However, I did buy a bunch of needles because they're different sizes from the ones in US and UK.

So, of the things I wanted to see
+ choco cro for Chocolate Croissant. Ohhh Yum, as good as I remember it.
+ okadaya for yarn. Note, there are two okadayas in the same building area. This is pretty common in Tokyo, having stores split into different buildings in the same area. If you want yarn a) 5th floor of the taller building, the one with beads in the bottom, not the FIVE floor cloth store. b) Bringing a sample of yarn helps when you don't know how to say yarn in Japanese.
- Daiso 100 yen store. Darn. I missed it.
- Tokyu Hands, missed it once again. So sad.
+/- Muji - I made it to the one in Narita but not the mecca Muji in Tokyo.
+ Itoya the 7 floor stationary store- I got your hole punch Melissa! But alas, I didn't find much I wanted to lug home myself. Yesterday was a bit hurried.
+ Yodobashi camera- Didn't find a case that fit my camera exactly. However, I didn't see any point and shoot Nikon's there, either.

Which leaves me wondering at 7 am in Tokyo, what oh what is open at this hour? And oh, is this in-room internet really "free" like my dad has ingeniously concluded.

Ah, and where is the ranking-ranqueen?!! I looked all over for it.

To breakfast we go. YUMM.

Sounds like a good shopping day. Can't wait to see the needles. Any interesting patterns?

I had a student today that had the COOLEST handbag that she said a relative got for her in Japan. The brand name was naakrumiar. You should check it out!!

Itoya the 7 floor stationary store - I would DIE in there! I hope to visit it one day! My love are fountain pens now :)

Hi Pal! Hope you're having (had) a great trip!

Just wanted to let you know that due to an Evil Boss, I won't be able to get to the post office tomorrow-- so your package will be posted on Saturday morning. Worry not, I think it'll be worth the wait!

Take care, and look for goodies next week!
