Off To Kawasaki!

Happy New Year everyone! Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu! Those in Japan, received a lot of negajou (New Year cards) this year?

The day after our trip to Disneyland, we head off to Kawasaki. We didn't plan to do any sightseeing in Kawasaki but rather our sole purpose for going there was to visit Ultraman Club located in Lazona Kawasaki Plaza.

I know it is kinda remiss of us not to visit any other places the area has to offer, but maybe next time, yes? We were hard pressed for time and for this visit, the trip was for Raimie to meet his Ultra Heroes at Ultraman Club.

Off to Kawasaki! It took half an hour for us to arrive Kawasaki station.


Day and night view from our hotel room on 18th floor. We can see planes flying in and out from Haneda Airport from our room.

It was so nice to sit on the comfy sofa in our room and just watch the view outside.

After spending time at the nearby mall (Lazona, BE, Yodobashi, etc), we ventured farther down and stumbled upon this shopping street. Nothing terribly exciting here for me, especially when walking around it seems that the place was overrun by game and panchinko parlours. Raimie and I decided to return to our room early after dinner while Zaini went out by himself for a bit of sightseeing.

So while Zaini went out sight seeing and going to God knows where, I let Raimie used my notebook to play games and I had a nice long soak in the bathtub and afterwards watched Music Station's Anniversary special on TV.
