Travelling alone for shopping in Tokyo

I visited Tokyo to meet my friends who were my schoolmates in Scotland this month.
I left Kyoto for Tokyo by Shinkansen, staying in Ikebukuro for 2 nights from Nov. 7th.

In Ikebukuro area, there are a lot of shopping malls & entertainment around the station such as Sunshine City, Lumine, and Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre.

Before meeting my friends, I first went to Shibuya Hikarie, which is new department store opened last year, to buy some interia goods.  It was 10:00am....a wee bit quiet..., but I saw so many people shopping there before the lunch time!!

I found a cute table in the resting room in Hikarie
 After that, I went to Shinjuku because I wanted to have a lunch at Freshness' Burger :)  I have not eaten any Freshness' original burger for 2 years since I worked in Shinjuku. Some Japanese girls feel shy when they go to some restaurants alone, but I think it is good for them to have a lunch alone there. Comfortable and relaxed...
Yummy!!


Then, after coming back to Ikebukuro, I still had enough time before meeting my friends. So, I went to the planetarium in Sunshine City. I waited for the opening time in the foyer. It was a great planetarium device which projected various images such as stars and the nature on the sherical screen with a relaxing original music!
Star-shaped sofers in the foyer!
 Then, I went to had a dinner with my friend in Hawaiian restaurant near the U.S Embassy, where I had delicious Hawaiian drinks.
I just went around the west area of Tokyo this time, but we have so many attractive sightseeing places in Tokyo such as Asakusa, Daiba, and Akihabara etc.
