Nick made it home around 9 PM. We started getting ready since we had made plans earlier in the week to go spend an entire night partying it up in Tokyo. Nick's next doorneighbor Chris came over and we left together. We rode bikes to the station, parked them there and then took the train to Tokyo. I was pretty impressed with myself...with the riding a bike in heels and all. Made it there just fine, with no casualties!
We chose the Ginza district as our destination. We got off the train at the main Tokyo station and then began walking towards the Ginza district. Well, I wish someone would've warned us that the two were not very close together! We sure did a lot of walking! We were joined by a friend of Chris' called Megumi (Meg). It was a good thing we had her along...although Chris' and Nick's Japanese combined is pretty good...there is nothing like having a native speaker there with you! We started off at an Irish pub, then made our way to a restaurant (I am sorry I can't remember the name...but it had the word moon in it). It was SO cool to order food from there. We had this computer screen basically at our table. We browsed all the dishes available (they had pictures and prices) then just clicked on it and waited. The waitress would then come along with the dish we had ordered. So incredibly high-tech! I had some plum wine for the first time...kinda on the too sweet side....but very delicious nonetheless. I would have plum wine again. We had a few beef dishes and a tofu dish (regular and sesame). After that we headed off to this place called S & G...I also have no idea what that stands for...and I was rather intoxicated at this point. LOL! It was agreat atmosphere and we had garlic fries and chicken wings (don't fret...I've been eating Japanese food too).
It was 6:30 AM by the time we made it back to Yotsukaido. Stopped for a quickie breakfast at McDonald's (they are everywhere here...just like North America) and then back on the bike for the ride home. THAT ride was even more impressive than my first one...as I was wearing heels AND drunk. Hehe. Chalk that up to one of those interesting experiences I can use as ice breakers at a party.
