I woke up by about 10:45pm, on Saturday evening. I looked over at the girls, both in a deep slumber. Instead of falling back to sleep myself, I decided to use the bathroom, and then try to go back to sleep. But, it was not as easy, as I had hoped. Instead, I checked my emails and the usual facebook messages, just in case my husband was trying to reach me... He did leave a message and all was well back home. I had to force myself to sleep, and luckily, I worked.
By about 5am, Sara was the first to wake up, then I. Taby was sound asleep. I was surprise, we all didn't get up at 2am from sleeping at 6pm the other evening. LOL
We started to do the usual ritual of washing our faces, breakfast bentos, etc. By about 7am. We were figuring out our plan of attack for the day. I told the girls that maybe we should check out, leave our bags with the Concierge, and take the shuttle bus to the mall? or pay for a late check out, then mall and check out upon returning to the hotel? We decided, nah, we'd just check out and go with the first plan.
We waited, and finally, we caught the bus to the mall. Sadly, we waited awhile, because we misread the schedule, and that the shuttle bus was captioned with a circle. So, it didn't come til' 2 hours later. We should've just stayed in the room a bit longer... oh well. Live and learn. On the City bus, it was quite loud, mostly foreigners talking loudly about where they were going, as people were telling them about what to see or enjoy. After a drop off at the JR station, our stop was next. About 30 minutes later we arrived at Aeon Mall by the Daiso shop. We exited and made our way to Daiso first...
We then, headed into the mall itself. Sara was complaining she was hungry and rightfully so. It was already 1pm. We went to the food court and ate. It was very crowded. We found a place to sit, which wasn't easy. After eating, we decided our plan was to go to Claire's because Sara wanted the foxy plush she fell in love with the other day, while Taby wanted to check out some shops she saw earlier. There was one particular shop that caught my eye, when we went through with Shizuka, called, "1 Chome, 1 Banchi". She told me it is an address of vintage or retro shops from long ago, that sold candies, sweets, etc. growing up. There were many young and old in the shop, looking, buying and picking the candies, and snacks they remember from their childhood.
Remember these? They are chocolate candies, you can find them even as a toy Rement. They're almost like M&M's chocolate candies.
It was close to the time we had to catch the next shuttle bus back to our hotel. But just before doing so, Taby wanted to try the crane machine at the game place we saw on the way in. It was her lucky day too and she won a Star Wars: Rogue One robot K-2SO! Wow, lucky girl. Of course that was after a few tries. Still she won it for a bit less then actual price.
My loot from our two day trip.
