My First Family Trip: Day 2

Due to the jet lag, I woke up around 4 in the morning today.
But I felt refreshed, maybe because of the hot bath I took last night.

We left the hotel around 9 am.
We shared Chinese dish for a breakfast, and walked around Nihon Bashi, Tokyo.
(It was Saturday so we had hard time looking for a place to eat breakfast.
Of course coffee shops were open but I didn't wanna go to a coffee shop to get a breakfast....)
And we visited Akihabara which is the place for electronics, computer, comic, and costumes that Otaku (nerd) would love.

Then, we met up with my great friend, who used to study in SD and now works in Tokyo.
We went sightseeing in Asakusa (浅草).
Sensoji (Buddhist temple) has a shopping street that provides
visitors with traditional and local snacks and souvenir.
We ate some snacks there which were delicious!!

Then we stopped by at a cafe and take a break.
After that, my friend and I went shopping at two jewelry parts and tools warehouses while my husband was just chilling at a Internet cafe.

I will post what I got at the jewelry parts shops later.

Then we went to this city called Tsukishima where Tokyo's famous dish "monja yaki" restaurants are.

Monja yaki is a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients.
My friend and I thought my husband would like it because it's entertainment to watch the food is made.

My husband loved monja yaki!!!
We had a wonderful day :)

Of course I took a bath at night while my husband was too tired even to take a shower and was sleeping.
Tomorrow will be as fun and interesting as today!!
