after a week of working in hong kong and ningbo, china- we took a weekend side trip to Tokyo for inspiration and shopping. the weather was perfect and we shopped til we dropped, ate awesome food, went to karaoke, visited a cat cafe, people watched and visited two museums. such a fun town, can't wait to go back!

outside the sex pistols themed izakaya we went to on night 1
cheers- vanessa, josh & me @ Kaikaya... i actually went to this restaurant 12 years ago with the Split crew. crazy!
josh & i, schmoozing with the owner of Kaikaya by the Sea
trip highlight #1...the cat cafe! pay $10 and hang out with cats for 30 minutes. only in japan...

this mustached character stopped us in the street and needed his photo taken with josh.
proud of our larger than life posters at the JR inside out exhibit at the Watari Museum
me, josh, vanessa & kim
dinner carnage from our meal @ Kaikaya. awesome food.
best thing ever- grilled "avocado steak" 
josh & vanessa- hamming it up while we waited out the dust storm

panoramic view from the observation deck at the Mori Museum
panoramic view from my room at the Cerulean Tower

i got nostalgic and couldn't resist getting jackie this massive monchichi at the Narita Airport...
