Sights around ゴールデン街 in 新宿。
Got to go to this really expensive sushi restaurant in Ginza with my dad, uncle, and his business partners. I ended up playing translator for the most of the night, but I got to eat the best sushi I’ve ever had.
Semi horrific part of dinner though was watching the chef tear the head and shell off live shrimp so we could eat them raw. The legs still moved after he decapitated them. おいしかった
Night and day.

I just saw one of my past YouTube crushes on Tinder! Always thought he was older than me ._.
I got to meet cogitoreklo when I visited Kyoto on Friday. He’s the second tumblr person I’ve ever gotten to meet. He’s pretty much what you’d expect him to be like from his posts. New things I learned about him include that he can drink sake like it’s water, he has a distinct way of running, and he tends to jump a lot while moving between places. Sad I didn’t get to hear his lovely singing voice in karaoke. Maybe next time 3
I’m always down to have potentially awkward meet ups with people from online. If any of you happen to be in the a Tokyo area, let me know ^^
I’ve definitely reached my green tea limit for the week.
Spent the morning at 嵐山 with the boyfriend. Walked through the bamboo forest, had some matcha and houji-cha gelato, and got some 湯豆腐定食。
