Royalty + Glitz (Marunouchi + Ginza)

LB + I walked so much today our shoes were smoking by the time we were finished. But what a fucking great adventure today has been!

One good thing about staying in West Shinjuku is that we're exactly half a block from the 丸の内 line of the Tokyo Metro, which is here:

4 Bucks for Organic Bananas is Totally Worth it

We Walked down this Little Alley to Find. . .

You should come back CZ. I had no idea how amazing Japan was--sadly--but Tokyo has jumped to the top-3 cities on my list. I love it here.
