2018 Japan New Years trip Part 4 : Rest of the pictures.

Lizardon and Pikachu welcoming the new year at the Pokemon Centre in Ikebukuro Sunshine City.

Speaking of Lizardon, we managed to snag two UFO Catcher prizes during this trip!  The first was a Pop Team Epic pushie and the second was this Lizardon at a game centre in Shin Koiwa.

We got both our UFO prizes through the same method, somehow snagging that plastic string that hold the tag.

Lizardon looking after the hotel room.

Keiji Yugami card case.

Keiji Yugami stand at the Tokyo Character Street at Tokyo Station. Must visit for jdorama fans.

I have no idea what a fromage is but it looks good.

Tasted not bad.

Other pastries at the shop.

The best new place we went this time was a yakiniku in Kabukicho called No Meat No Life. Turns out it was just directly opposite the infamous Robot Bar.

We went for the really expensive meats and it was definitely worth the money!

The bad thing about going to Japan around new years' is that a lot of the good eating places were closed so we ended up with a lot of generic food from chain shops.

Omurice place with demi glace sauce in Shimokitazawa. It was not bad. My experience with demi glace sauce is if it doesn't say limited availability, when it sucks.

Macha aisu in Kamakura because it makes sense to eat ice cream in the winter outside.

Sushi from Kakiya in Kamakura. It was ok. The best sushi we had was at this sushi train place at the 8th floor of Yodobashi Akihabara called Magurobito. You can have your own private table and order from a tablet and the sushi will be sent to your table by an automated conveyor belt. Its more expensive than normal but you can definitely taste the difference especially with the maguro. And its got an English menu as well so very recommended.

Kyoto Katsugyu at 8th floor of Yodobashi Akiba. Way overpriced. Avoid.

Gyutan from Tannosuke. Way overpriced.

Another small Lizardon pushie.

Went to the Sega arcade in Kabukicho to get Yakuza goods!

Picture of some of my loot. A whole bunch of old games there. Also got another Sega Saturn since I killed another one when I forgot to plug it into the transformer first.

More retro games. The two drinking glasses on the top right are from Street Fighter and the glass on the left has all the move names in katakana.

Bought two plastic display boxes for 1000 yen each to keep the dust away. The box is a lot larger than it needed to be. Works decent for a cheap product.

FOOOOOD! Thank you! Too bad all the good restaurants were closed. It still looks delicious though.

Looks like fun! Food looks great and I enjoy the Keiji Yugami pictures -- I'm making my way through that drama now.
