Day 1 - Night Shopping (Ikebukuro)

Night in Ikebukuro31st Jan 2003 - Ikebukuro. Ikebukuro ( is one of the biggest districts on the Yamanote Line (the circular train service that acts as a ring-route around Tokyo).. We went to Toyota Amlux (free to enter) and generally did some shopping (did I mention the fact that it was WINTER... bought a cheap coat here. Don't forget I was coming from an Australian summer.

It's a nice area, and there's plenty of shopping around here... and a good place to grab a bite to eat. Ah - I can remember one of my wife and I's first arguments occured over a dinner in Ikebukuro... what was it about? Hmmm - if i can remember, I wouldn't tell. What a way to start a long (first) holiday. Actually, that's the sort of thing that happens when you start to get deep into the holidaying straight off the plane.

There's a fair bit to do in Ikebukuro (such as Sunshine City bldg) - but unfortunately we arrived fairly late in the day, and were pretty tired. I'd like to go back and explore more.... but that will have to wait.
