Tokyo Tower et al. ^_^  
So, what have I been up to in real life? I mean, outside of the Tenimyu fangirling? Heh.. not a lot, really. I did, however, visit Tokyo Tower. Uh, it just so happened to be right by the hall where the Yamabuki tenimyu was playing. ^.^;; So of course, we went over there and took a look, several times! I didn't go up in it because it's a bit expensive, but one month where I haven't made some bad financial decisions I'll go and take a look up there. =^_^= It's not all that far from me, really. mizukiaya took these pictures, aren't they beautiful! <3

I was expecting the Tokyo tower to be a lot bigger, but it was still very pretty. The nighttime view was really impressive! They had a gift shop of sorts on the second floor which we poked around in, but the official one was up on the viewing floor and cost monies to go into, so I didn't get to go see it. I will go and see it sometime soon~! <3 Did I mention that it snowed pretty hard our last night there? It was nice to be able to go inside for a little bit and get some warmth flowing through our veins~! ^_^

I am planning to go to a few cultural things with friends soon. It should be really nice to be able to finally get out and experience some of the festivals and local sightseeing areas in Japan, that don't have to do with anime or Tenimyu. Not that those things are bad... in fact I'm completely obsessed with the latter (completely is an understatement! I think dilettantka understands.. =D).. but I do want to do some interesting cultural things. Yesh! Let's get our tourist on!

This week I met two more lj friends irl! I am so happy!! The lovely and fun kira_shadow came and stayed with me for a day to see Tenimyu! I wish she could have stayed longer, but from what I understand, she was lucky to get to come here at all. I hope you can come back to Japan soon! ^^ I also me the lovely and wonderfully obsessive mizukiaya! O-hohoho!! She lives in northern Japan, and I SO hope that she can move to Tokyo sometime! She is so amazingly fun~!!! Uwa!

In other news, I'm really happy that my phone now has Endo's voice saying "mada mada dane" every time I get a text message. =D;; I wish it was Yanagi's, but they didn't have that one available on the website.

And in my first class yesterday, my student's names were Tachibana Junta and Takemoto Yuuta! They were very friendly with each other (I think they were friends?), and my mind was secretly Tenipuri fangirling. XD;; Too bad they didn't look like the characters. XD;; Or like Kenn... okay, now that would rock. >>random>> I still need to watch Sukisho.. and the new OMG TV series. I need to catch up on anime.

How coooo~l ^^ I want my phone to have cool features like that~
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 26th, 2005 01:06 pm (UTC)
LOL it's not a feature, just a "ringtone" that I downloaded from their site. =D
Jeychynoi on January 26th, 2005 05:28 pm (UTC)
Oh~ Well even still. ^_^() I can't do that cuz I need to get net on my phone to do so!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 26th, 2005 11:58 pm (UTC)
Hehee.. I think you need to have a japanese phone too, since you can't just go to the webpage.. you have to go through the different scary kanji menus until you get to it. XD;;
Jeychynoi on January 27th, 2005 12:22 am (UTC)
o_O Eeeeep... scary kanji menus... *shudders*
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 27th, 2005 12:31 am (UTC)
Yeah... I was all... ::matches them up on the flier to the ones on the phone:: They're supposedly kanji I should learn soon, but they're so complicated... T_T

Hehe, that thing's cool to look at once, but all the magical effects are gone when you look at the gift shops. XD
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 26th, 2005 01:06 pm (UTC)
Actually, I really want to go upstairs to the real gift shop and look at the penis mascot!!! :D

Awwwwww *write down, change the keitai I use for Japan and buy one with english instructions so I can download the voices too>_<*
Tokyo Tower...I actually went there 3 times but only one time on the top...(It's not that I don't like to be sooo up it's just that I'm afraid the tower could fall in the meantime^^;;; Same reason that I use to skip the ferris wheel when we go to the park^O^)And also..Tokyo tower IS expensive^^

you know...I almost got stuck in Japan yesterday...
they wouldn't let me go to New Zealand because I didn't have a flight to Germany...now I have a useless flight to Aussie...(Australia)...
more about that later in my LJ...

just one thing...
I promised you a KevRyo fic...I started it on the plane (10 boring hours...) and it will be called "Payback"

I hope I will be able to type it up soon!
Luv you lots!
I had so much fun and I hope I will be able to return!!!!!!!

Yep, I understand *obsess obsess obsessssss*
I think it's from watching SideMine and SideBuki so close together, all the emotions and excitement mixed together..
Hmm.. actually that wasn't so big a jump, was it? XD

Dude, I am totally there with you!

I think that's what makes the big difference-- having someone else there to obsess with you over it! It's like the obsessive energy mingles, and suddenly we're BOTH bursting over with excess obsess!!

INSANELY OBSESSSED!!! I love the ring of that!!!!~~~!!!!!! <33

Mmm!! Good point!! it was SO exciting seeing my first myu, but I was alone and had nobody to squee with afterwards, I could only post about it on the internet. and I was too nerdy to go to demachi by myself. and Dream Live was just.. different. and then.. SeiRu and.. madness begins!

We are Tokyo's tenimyu fangirls~!!!!!! I hope they keep making Tenimyus for us to obsess over until we're way too old to get out of bed and go! Then they'll have to wheel us over and the cast will take pity on us and let us sit backstage with decrepit old Yanagi and Kimeru, who also just can't let go. XD;;

Ooh, pretty O.O;; *wishes she could go to Japan*

Tachibana Junta and Takemoto Yuuta, eh? Omg, my friend just came back from exchange in Japan, and she met this boy called Inukai Tetsuya XD I'd laugh so hard if it was me.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 26th, 2005 03:03 pm (UTC)
ROFLOL!!!! OMG that's the best name ever! XDD;;

^^ If you wanna have Yanagi's voice on your phone, here's a site I got from jedijenchan : http://www.myphonefiles.com You can make ringtones from mp3's and other music files by yourself with the software you can download there. *sob* My phone doesn't have the melodic ringtone quality so I can't make any... ~_~
