Backpackers Hostel "J-Hoppers" & "Hana Hostel"

ArigaTOKYO!

Hi, everyone!
How are you doing?
This is Mizzy from Hana Hostel in Hiroshima!

You know what?
I went to Tokyo 1 week ago as my own birthday present!
It took about 4 hours and half by Shinkansen Nozomi Super Express.

I used to live in Tokyo for 4 years but it's been ages to visit there and was very easy to get lost! lol

Oh boy...Things change so quickly in Tokyo and some shops I used to go were no longer there.
However, the only thing that never changes...is crowds.....
On a train, on a street...everywhere is so busy....

I left Tokyo long time ago and came back to my hometown, Hiroshima.
Hiroshima is not too small, not too big, and very peaceful.
Therefore, in Tokyo, I felt like I was a stray puppy in the herd of people passing by. Haha!

Oh well, a few hours later, my friend and I checked out some bars and I recalled how fun to be in Tokyo was!

First of all, we went to Shibuya and hopped into a rock bar.
They served me a surprise birthday cake and glow drinks.
After that, we went to a karaoke and sung until the dawn.

Hmm...I could have died happy! :D



 But I didn't want to die young so I'm still alive. lol

Secondly, we went to Asakusa and I saw the Sky Tree Tower for the first time in person.
But that was just another tower for me and we passed it by. hehe...
We went to an Izakaya and enjoyed great creative meals with all you can drink system.

Awww....That was soooo gooooood.....




Thirdly, we went to Ikebukuro where I spent the most of my time when I lived in Tokyo.
We visited a bar that I used to work when I was in Uni. but we had only 1 drink.
We were too tired and hangover...

Afterwards, we had Tokyo's local food called 'Monjya-yaki' in Ikebukuro.
It's just like melted Okonomiyaki but my friend expressed it as 'melted pizza' because we put some cheese in it.

It sounds weird but kind of fun to make it by yourself though!

We were planning to go back to our hotel to chill but found out there was a very interesting bar called 'Lock Up' near-by.
Yea, we couldn't miss it.

So...we opened the door and entered.....
But there was no bar but a narrow path... 
So dark...So scary.... It was like a haunted house with some zombie dolls, skulls, and some scary stuff.

I HATE HORRORS and almost cried.
I know I'm soft. :P

I tried to go back to the entrance but my friend laughed, pulled my hand, and led me to the forward....

I felt like it took hours to get to the bar section....
My heart was pounding so fast by the time we sat at table.

Finally, we saw a light and a cute girl in a police costume showed up.
She asked us ' Which one of you did a guilty thing today?' in Japanese.
My friend is Dutch and didn't understand Japanese so I pointed at my friend. lol

The police girl handcuffed my friend and guided us to a table.
OMG...Both of us couldn't stop laughing!

We sat at table that looked like a jail and then, the staff said, 'It seems like monsters were released! Please stay here. Be safe! ' and left.

We were like "WHAT?! WHAAAAAT?!"....looked at each other and laughed out loud.

All of a sudden, all the lights went down and warning siren rung.
Emergency announcement said something but I was in panic and don't remember what they said.

We closed the iron door of the jail and waited the monsters...
We had no idea what was going to happen, so we...waited...waited....waited....and.....
((((((BANG!!!!)))))
We heard a big unexpected sound.
I was so surprised and jumped in the air.
That was the sound of a monster hit our door with a wrench.

All the lights were turned on when the event was over.

"Whew...Finally, we can order...."

We took a look at the menu but as soon as the page was turned over, we got so confused.
Because they were so unique/weird (especially for drinks) and we had no idea what they could taste like.

Everything happened at this bar was very weird, yet fun experience I have ever had.

Gotta love Japan!
Gotta love Tokyo!





Ahhh, Tokyo was fun!
Arigato (Thank you) +Tokyo = ArigaTOKYO!
