Almost got blew away by the wind a few times, got my umbrella flipped twice and became an interesting sight on the street. ^^;;;
As much as I am not a true fan of the Gundam series, seeing this life-size replica is… I have been seeing them in many pop culture and back in Polytechnic, the guys in my school club has many cool Gundam models.
I remember asking this senior, what is this ROBOT, and he told me it is MECHA. xD He invited me a few times to join his class on assembling your own models, I should have!!
:3 The whole place is so picturesque. If I didn’t read wrongly, the crew in the first picture tidying the place are volunteers!! And I saw a total of 3 couples in wedding costumes during this trip, 2 pairs are in Sankeien. <3
24/4/2013, Wedesday, Shinjuku’s Kinokuniya (Main) Book Store.
I had a tough time finding this and almost fell flat twice on the street. I guess I wasn’t feeling too use to walking so much. ^^;;;
I think this is a better place (than smaller stores) if you want to get your JLPT materials coz this place has 8 stories of books! Foreign language and Japanese learning for foreign studies are located on the 8th floor.
I went in via the side of the building and the elevators are tended by elevators personnel. That was also my first few time speaking in Japanese “八階お願いします。”
And don’t forget to visit the comic store, FOREST, beside the building.
