First day in Tokyo. Warm and humid.
Staying at a hostel in the Asakusa district with mostly students & other young travelers.
For breakfast today, we had a chicken katsu sandwich, hard boiled eggs, bananas, broiled mackerel, a tuna/mayo onigiri (rice ball), and milk tea that we bought from the dollar store down the street.
I don’t know how, but we’ve got to bring this dollar store/convenience store culture to the U.S. At the 7/11 here, you can pay your rent & utilities, reload money on your cell phone, buy actually edible/decent food (including sushi grade sashimi), get shampoo and other toiletries, and buy housewares.
Pictures coming soon.
