Japan Day 1: Akihabara And Namja Town, Ikebukuro

This is our second round in Japan.  This time we want to dig deeper of each district in Tokyo, that we haven't covered last time.  Plus we will visit some new places like Hakone and Okinawa as well.  So please enjoy my blog, guys. 

After we landed from Bangkok, we just dropped our luggage at the hotel then headed straight to Akhihabara to see those superhuge and colorful billboards about the anime.  The city is definitely shown as what they are entitled of.  Manga and Electronic Town.  For the manga geek, this place will make them go crazy.  There are games, dvds, costumes and also figurines. 

Quick lunch at one of the sushi train next to JR Akihabara ststion 

At night, we had a stroll at the Sunshine City Complex, Ikebukuro.  We didn't walk much in the mall but instead heading straight to Namco Namja Town, where they have food theme park, Gyoza Stadium, Dessert Alley, and Ice Cream Parlour (it is used to be Ice Cream City).  There is a hounted house as well inside the area.
