9/02/12 Ikebukuro Sunshine CityHey guys!
Hope you are all well! I've been spending the past few days cleaning my room.. I've been saying I would for about 1-2 years now but I just couldn't be bothered doing it haha.
Since it's been a long time since I've done a Japan post, I thought it'd be nice to do a quick one today! Today I'm going to blog about the day my friends and I spent at Ikebukuro Sunshine City~!
We stayed in Ikebukuro last time we went to Japan in a hostel. Since we were running out of money really badly, we thought it was best to just spend a day at Sunshine City and no-where else.
Like I said before, we were running out of money really badly, so we decided to have lunch at a soba place. A whole meal for just 300yen from 3pm-10pm!
Unfortunately we were there around 12 so we didn't get the special price.. but it was still really cheap.
After that we walked to Sunshine City~
While walking past this game center...
We saw a Rilakkuma!
He was just posing for photos!
Walking to Sunshine City you pass by many different shops!
Going down the huge escalators to get down to Sunshine City
You have to walk about 100 meters to actually get to the entrance after the escalator ride, but for lazy people (like me) you can use these travelators haha.
What I love about Sunshine City, is that if you go to ALTA (which is towards the end of the Sunshine City mall) and go on the 1st floor, there are LOTS of shops selling ridiculously cheap shoes. Some are around $10-$20!
I wanted to take Joanna there to have a look at the shoes, so most of the time I was just resting since I was so tired that day haha
I don't know what this was on about.
After we went to a shop called "Lodispotto". Seriously the weirdest shop name ever, but the clothes are really nice
The accessories are really princessy!
I decided to try on a top so my friends took photos without me knowing lol
I look so angry in that photo LOL. Ended up buying that top because it was 70% off!
After that we went to INGNI! I really like the clothes in INGNI
Wearing glasses from there lol.
We then finished off the day with Purikura!
As I mentioned before, in Japan there is something called "Cosplay Purikura" where you're able to rent out costumes for free, and wear them for purikura!
There werent many costumes left, so we just took whatever was there. I have no idea what I was cosplaying, and I stupidly didn't realize that there was actually a white shirt with my costume in the bag it came in (I thought something was weird when I had the costume on, I felt a bit exposed LOL).
It was getting late so we ended up leaving Sunshine City and went to grab some dinner~
Cute vending machine!
For dinner, we decided to go to a Japanese chain pasta restaurant called Saizeriya. It sells pasta for really cheap and they taste good too!
Even though it had 2 chillis next to it... it isn't spicy at all. Japanese people don't usually eat spicy food so even if they say it is, it still tastes mild to me.
Food was so good though!
