We started our day walking through Tokyo, passing by shops, walking over bridges, seeing Sumo wrestlers, and checking out the quieter side of Tokyo on our way to a theater. A movie for one of our favorite video games, "Gyakutek Saiban" aka "Phoenix Wright" in America, was released in theaters so we wanted to see it.
While we waited for the show time, we went to Pietro's for lunch.
The pizza was so delicious!
The view of Tokyo was beautiful on this misty/not quite rainy day.
When you buy movie tickets, you actually get to pick out which seats to sit in which is pretty cool. You also get this nifty little tray for your food and drinks.
Oh! And there was a gift shop there to buy items from the various movies playing. We picked up this program slash photo book from the movie.
Afterwards, Aaron took me on a shopping spree and I picked up some cute clothes, fake thick framed glasses, and bunch of bento stuffs. Then as we walked back to our part of town, we passed by the Tokyo Sky Tree:
Then we went back to Akihabara for food and fun. We wanted to go someplace different for our V-day dinner. Where? We weren't sure until we ran across Bar Rythm, which is a little darts bar two flights of stairs down below one of the side streets. It was bright, friendly, as was playing JPOP music we know, AND they had omurice there (which was what I wanted for V-day dinner).
What is omurice? It's just about the coolest thing in the world! It's a Japanese omelet, made of fried rice cooked with ketchup (or some type of tomato sauce), topped with an omelet, then (the BEST part!) a picture or phrase is written on top with ketchup. Omelet made of rice... Omu rice... get it? xD
Getting omurice with a fox on it was one of my main goals while in Tokyo. It made me so happy to get it! The gal who served us giggled when she asked what I wanted her to draw on the omurice and I asked for a "kitsune onegaishimasu" (fox please).
After Bar Rythm, we headed to Club Sega to play some games.
I won that mouse pad and mouse out of a crane game. Took a while, quite a few 100 yen pieces, and help from the nice Club Sega guy, but I got it and it's currently what I'm using at my computer right now.
We did two more awwwwesome photo booths as well. Easily the best pictures of us ever. Apparently a big feature of these photo booths is that they slightly enlarge your eyes. Regardless, I LOVE these pictures. It's us in our element~ being in love and having fun with each other. ♥
Then we walked around Akihabara a bit before heading back to the hotel and crashing. So probably spent 3 or 4 hours that day walking. Good times!
Being in Tokyo with Aaron and having a super cute dinner for Valentine's day was better than all the chocolate and flowers in the world. *^___^*
Thanks for hanging in there~ this was a long post. Have a great night!
