Japan Trip 2013 – Akihabara P2/P3 + Roppongi

See Flickr for the complete photo sets

Back to Akihabara for more shopping! Like in Akihabara P1, these are just a sample of pictures (see Flickr sets for the rest)… I spent a lot of my time cataloguing each store for my upcoming Akihabara Shopping Guide, so these aren’t as flashy as the first post.



There’s also a lot of crappy phone camera pics (didn’t want to bring out the actual camera), so please excuse the crappy quality ones orz

I went back to DOLK because I realized there was a second floor… DOLK and DOLK+ have two separate entranes for some reason… (maybe they expanded later?)

They game me a pretty points card that they stamped on the back (not sure what you get for filling up the card though)

Wanted to window-shop the Kotobukiya store some more




Akiba@Star was closed when I went ; (

Random shrine in Akiba O_o

It’s Mandarake Akihabara time!

Finish off the day with some Kirin Beer

Day 3 of Akihabara turned out mostly to be food… oops!

Forgot to take this “Welcome to Akiba” pic, so here it is!

First thing in the morning… off to the Gundam Cafe!



Pretty nice place inside, and you could take a lot of pictures













“Keripo, is this what do giant robots eat for lunch?”


I got the Setsuna, he got the Kira Yamato (I still can’t believe they spelt it wrong…

Actually tasted pretty good ^_^ (or at least better than the Good Smile Cafe, which isn’t really hard to beat)


Connected to the cafe was a gift shop – bought a few things here

Outside, you could order Gundam shapped waffles. I got the bacon and mayo one – it was amazing!





We wanted desert, so we went back to the Good Smile Cafe to see what they had (actually, my friend just wanted to check out the cards shop again in Akiba Culture Zone)

Looks like they change themes each day… today’s themes were Nyaruko-san and Maou-sama(and Gargantia again)






They played awesome Nyaruko-san music that made my friend wonder why I was so happy (ED3 drove me crazy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoxjPYvXVKM)

They gave us a metal coin to stick in a gashapon machine for a Gargantia or Maou-sama pin… I just kept the metal coin xD


Tadaaa!!! Raspberry parfait! Was actually only so-so, but looked really nice ^_^

My brother in arms! (I believe they were Azu-nyan and a Kirino nendos)

I’m sure Oshino would be secretly drooling…

Killing some time at the Taito Station… I’m terrible at crane machines unfortuntely, but I did get an adorable Yashino face towel ^_^



Roppongi

Went to Roppongi right after Taito Station to visit a friend for dinner





All-you-can-eat for 1,980 yen? Hell yeah!

We actually upgraded to the second choice which let us choose from both sides of the menu for 500 yen more

Food ordering was from an iPad

Just a sample of the foods we got – see the Flickr set for all of the yummies

I was hoping to watch some Touhou PVs like Fantasy Kaleidoscope, but oh well xD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTe1JMTlwwc

Exploring the mall

This door…

What comes after food? Drinks!

Pretty classy but bubbling place



Decent drinks menu, really liked the spiked lychee soda


Random night shots


Stay tuned for more Japan Akihabara goodness!
