The Tokyo Tower Trick Art Gallery @o@  
Yesterday, I met up with slytherinblack, a longtime livejournal friend but whom I had never met in person before. We went to the Tokyo Tower Trick Art Gallery... and it was so much fun!! ^O^ Okay, granted the gallery was a little bit lame, but I do want to go back again because you know I just love taking stupid pictures! XD;;

Well, it was really fun relaxing and talking about various this and that.. We'll definitely have to hang out again before you leave Tokyo! ^o^

Do you know that I've never been up to the top of Tokyo Tower? I don't know, but maybe that could be considered a tiny bit lame.. Especially seeing as how I've been to the tower about 10 times, see it often, and I have lived here for more than three years now.. But then again, I guess there are people who've lived in New York City all their lives and never been to the Statue of Liberty, right? So I guess I'm slightly less lame than that. XD;;

This is supposed to be a mirror-effect. ^^ Will have one from farther away next time, and I've gotta pose better! XD;; *not a model*

I'm faaaaalling!!

Look ma, what I caught!

I'm too tall.. ^^;; Either way, failed this picture because I didn't realize about the crocodile! ^^;;

X.X;;;;;;; Cool effect!! Though I have a better idea for next time!

I'm smiling as I'm being eaten! Err.. it was hard not to laugh!

Hahaa...... I might be.. slightly angelic. ^^;; I dunno!

Carly and I took some purikura too. =D

And of course Tokyo Tower! It's free to take pictures from the ground. XD;; But I always seem to be lacking the money to go to the top when I visit. XD;; But I will go up one day!

Can you believe this was destroyed in countless CLAMP animes? This further confirms my theory that the members of CLAMP are all militant phallus-object-hating lesbians. :D No offense to my militant phallus-hating friends. :D But seriously, they are all lesbians, right? ^^

As you can see, it was gorgeously warm outside, and the weather was amazing!! It's quite cool and rainy today, but a nice change. It feels like Aberdeen (or like Forks, for those of you who read Twilight).

I've been meaning to say this for a while.. but lately I've gotten really hooked on Gundam 00!! It's the first time that I've ever really liked a Gundam show, but I just can't help myself! I'm still not a mecha fan, but omg the DRAMA! I want so much to be a part of Celestial Being.. I really, really sympathize with their goals. Though sometimes they are quite hypocritical, which just adds to the interest! (Then again, which governmental-type agency is not?) I am behind in the episodes though, so don't spoil me! (I watched ep16 yesterday) OMG LOVE for Allelujah and Setsuna (not together-- Allelujah and Hallelujah are so getting it on! Don't ask how that works but in my mind it DOES! I wonder if there are doujinshi for that... must.. go.. to.. event..)

*coughs* And almost finished with A Feast for Crows.. I think that I will finish it up right now, before working on my stuff for today! WOW, at the end it's gotten REALLY good! Of course, they had to wait until the last 100 pages before anything substantial happened. -_-;;

PS: What is this Arcana Heart? I think I need it to survive.. Someone buy me the US version and send it to me? ^o^;; *useless/penniless*

Arcana Heart! I can't look at the link since I'm at work, but it's a fighting game by ATLUS. It looks adorable.

Okay, new friend here (hi!) uh, what the heck are you doing in japan?!?

I mean, how did you come to find yourself in that position? direct me to old entries if you don't feel like repeating, I just kinda, like, wanna know how someone finds themselves living so far away?

It's the 50th anniversary this year (or some kind of anniversary) so they repainted it freshly last year. That's why it's so bright read now :)

Ahh, Tokyo. The city that has a museum/gallery/collection for pretty much everything. The trick art photos are awesome! I think my favourite collection-of-one-particular-item experiences was NamjaTown in Sunshine City. Gyoza stadium won me over, and Ice Cream City was pretty random but cool too. I'd love to return in warmer weather and spend LOTS more time in Tokyo.

Also also, love the tokyo tower pics! :)

Arcana Heart is a fighting game by Yuki Enterprises, who did the new Samurai Shodown games. It's actually a suprisingly well done all-girl fighting game that's made of win and coming out in the states. The second one is due out in Japanese arcades here really soon.

And I haven't been inside the Tokyo Tower yet myself. I really ought to go inside it one of these days... *laughs*

I just started watching Gundam 00, too! (Actually, I started watching the first episode raw, but it was too hard to understand, so I stopped... but I've watched a lot of episodes today ^^;)

Oooh, looks like you guys had a good time! :D And militant lesbian!CLAMP really does explain why Tokyo Tower always gets the blow. D: You got to admire the rebuilding skills of Tokyo though. ;D

It would be great to go to Tokyo and meet You~!
slytherinblack was lucky XD

that will be somehow stupid: what is on the top of Tokyo Tower? XD
Gundam drama You say? Well I have never seen drama nor anime but it seems interesting, at least many people are interested in it (^___^)>

LOL at first I have read: A Feast for Cows XD it's 00:47 here, I should have been sleeping...

These photos are wicked (^O^)
I like the pictures from the museum. I spent 3 minutes just to figure out how this mirror-effect works, at the end I still don't know (^__^;;)
Photo in the forest is funny~ lol

suggestions on must see places in tokyo
I'm not sure how i found your blog site, but i was doing a search on blogs in tokyo hoping to find some suggestions on places to check out in tokyo during my visit here. i saw your entry and figured she might have some suggestions on the must see places to eat, shop and see in tokyo since i have about a week left. right now i'm in a suburb area east of shibuya called setagaya so if you or any of your friends have any suggestions...that would be great. hope this isn't too weird..but after 15 mins of other sites suggesting castles and temples and such and the fact that i found out this blog is actually an lj one...couldn't hurt to ask. i'm trying to get tix to the redsox and a's game this week but other than that...i'm open for any suggestion. oh and if you know of some places to buy funny/unique omiage gifts that would help too.

thanks in advance for any suggestions...
