Harajuku & Shinjuku

The last few days had been busy. We were so busy with shopping around. We had a long list and we nearly got everything we want.
On thursday we went to Harajuku. We got up very early and went to the Meiji shrine first.At that point it wasn't crowded so we were able to see a wedding. Sadly it was a bit cold since it was so early so we didn't stay as long as we wanted.
After we left we saw lots of tourists coming so going early was definetly a smart idea.
We took a quick walk to best shopping street in Harajuku. It so amazing and great for people watching. Lots of young japans shop at that place and you can see their amazing style. I got myself two cute skirts. I always want more but having a guy with you for clothes shopping isn't that fun. Of course we went to Kiddyland too but I didn't get anything special. Just a little pen this time. But I do spent lots of money on Daiso...if course .
In the evening we just walked around in Ueno and relaxed.

Yesterday we got up pretty late so we had to skip the breakfast.
We went to Shinjuku to some art supply stores. It was heaven for mr. artistic and I found some great colored pastels for my custom Blythe.

Since we got up so late there was not enough time to do lots in the evening. Just some little candy shopping in our area.

Today we are off to fabric heaven. I hope I will have enough cash for everything.

You can see always more pics at my flickr.

2. Ueno park

Yesterday we woke ip pretty late so we decided to hang around in the neighbourhood only.
Since our hotel is in Uneo we decided to visit the Ueno park first. It was perfect weather and the first little flowers were already there.It must be amazing when the flowers bloom in a few weeks. Dadly we won't be able to see that while we are since we leave earlier.
The weather was so freaking amazing that we had to go to the Ueno Zoo  too see the pig Pandas and the other animals. The zoo is bigger as we expected so we only saw half of the zoo but since the entrance fee is cheap we have to go again next week.
After the zoo we went to Yamashiroya toy store in Uneo.Mr. artistic had a blast since it was his first visit in a japanese toy store.We spent some time there but I just got a little kitty charm for my mobile phone. I nearly bought a middie Blythe but I want to check out the prices in Nakano broadway out first.

Plan for the next day: Harajuku

mr. artistics midnight snack...stupid jetleg

It's 4 in the morning and we are still awake. After traveling around 24 h we can't sleep.
Even the sleepings meds are not helping.

Any adivice for jetleg problems. I never had that problem before.

We were bored so mr. artistic made of us sort of an undercut. My looks really cool and nobody will notice where the spots places on my head were before.

Tomorrow we are going to the Ueno park and of course to the biggest toy store here in Ueno

at the airport

at the airport, originally uploaded by crafting with loove.

I have still fever but got some antibiotics today.
The flight will be horrible but not flying would be stupid.We would loose all our money.

The last days were horrible.Yesterday mr. artistic dad was biten by our cat when he catched because she left the house.Mr. artistic rushed to hospital and he spent 5 h in the ambulance.When he returned he fainted due to all the stress and the bite.
While all this happened I was in bed with high fever.

Today I woke up with fever and went to the doctor.I got tons of meds and decided to fly to Tokyo.
While I'm at the airport now is mr. artistic dad at doctor again because he got an infection from the bite.

The last two days were a completly nightmare.Now I can just hope that the meds will work and I can enjoy the holidays a bit.
