So, to try to keep us all happy, I figured we could all go to Osaka, Japan for the day. I did my research and found many temples, castles and shrines we could visit along with the museum that had "Tim Burton's" art displayed... We were so excited to be going!
Sadly, the day before our trip, the flight into Osaka was a minus 34 seats! What does that mean? It meant we couldn't go. Sam figured that there must be a meeting of sorts for the company and they held back 34 seats... So, that early Friday morning, he and I talked about where else we could go?
Nagoya, Narita, Sapporo?...hmm! Sam has seen Nagoya, but he's never been outside of the Narita Airport. So, I switched gears and did a quick few hours research of Narita and where in Tokyo we could go that would satisfy everyone?! I decided on Harajuku! I know, your thinking because of the cosplay costumes, etc., right?! Nope, it was because, there was a park, a shrine, a 100yen store, and Kiddyland. That caught my attention to satisfying the needs of everyone! Or at least I'd hope it would?! I planned out our day trip, where to go and how to get there so that we would make it to the three main places in the plan... Yoyogi Park, Meiji Shrine, Daiso Store, and Kiddyland!
Our flight left out early Saturday morning about 6:55am, from Guam to Narita, Japan. We landed, went through the usual passport, then customs, and finally, the first floor to the outside of Narita Airport. First stop, money exchange, next Narita Express...
We got our round trip tickets on the Narita Express train, I sat with Tabytha, while Sam was with Sara in front of us...
We got off at the Niporri Station for a quick look! Then, back into the Jr Line to take the Yamanote Line into Harajuku Station...
On the Yamanote Line, it was a bit of a long ride, but were were excited!
We decided to have some ice cream and rest our feet again. Then, Sam wanted to go to a blue bridge or crosswalk he had seen by the entrance to Yoyogi. He and Sara went up there to take photos of the Yoyogi Stadium.
This street, Omotesando, is the street we should've taken to see the Kiddyland store, but because we had to catch the Narita Express back to the airport, we decided not to go there. I felt bad, as it was something I thought Sara would love... Maybe next time?!
Back on the Narita Express, so we don't miss the last train! Sara showing me her "Princess Peach" Gatcha Gatcha/ Gashapon toy from Takeshita Dori!
We made it into Narita Airport with time to spare, so we had dinner there, and also did a bit of shopping as well!
