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.
