Hello! I'm pretty behind on posting because I've been insanely busy lately, but I'm trying to get back into it, because I miss blogging.
A little over a week ago, I met up with my Mari after class. We wandered around Shibuya 109 for a while, then took purikura.
The height difference makes me laugh a lot (I'm bending very awkwardly here because I'm too tall for the machines when I stand up straight)
While purikura isn't exactly known for being natural, the second machine we tried did some REALLY intense face-editing ahaha:
After purikura, we went to an Alice in Wonderland-themed restaurant. This is a chain, but the particular one we went to (in Shibuya) is called 舞踏の国のアリス (Butou no Kuni no Arisu), or Alice in Dancing Land.
All the waitresses were dressed as Alice
The menus were shaped like the White Rabbit's pocket watch
Mari's chocolate cake
My ridiculous Cheshire Cat parfait c:
There was a pretty good selection of both desserts and main courses, as well as cocktails and other drinks. While the prices are a little higher than what you'd expect to pay elsewhere, it's still very affordable, and definitely worth it. I believe there was also a cover charge of about 500 yen (about £3) per person, but I'm afraid I don't really remember.
The overall atmosphere felt like a slightly more laid-back Disneyland. It was nice.
At the end, we were both given a free packet of strawberry tea to take home.
