Happy new year! I've been incredibly busy all December and thus not had a chance to update. I'll be queueing up some entries from now on though!
Emy came to visit me from December 25th to January 12th! We rented an apartment in Ota-ku via Airbnb and spent 8 days in Tokyo. There's so much to do over there, it wasn't really enough time to be honest....
We needed to pick up something from a printer close by Tokyo tower, so hey, why not just go see the tower itself too.
After that we dropped by Akihabara. We dropped by the Square Enix café and managed to get a reservation on the day! Lucky. We had some free time before our time slot so we went to check out some stores.
I bought these adorable Kirby erasers at Super Potato! I love them. If you like video games I'd definitely recommend going there, it's a retro heaven on earth.
After that it was time to head back to the café. The store and café area is in the same room so we had to wear guest passes. We didn't get the one "free drink" as we didn't reserve in advance, but it's okay.
Moogle stew vs curry! The curry looks rather unpleasant but it was pretty good! I swear!
the 30th anniversary jelly dessert. It was so aesthetically pleasing I just had to order it.
Emy got this one!
I'm not actually sure what this was but the alcohol in it was sorta strong, haha. Imagine getting wasted at a square enix café.... (the square enix bar however, makes more sense)
After our time was up we headed over to the store section and I ended up buying way too much nier stuff.... The café in Tokyo will have a NieR replicant/gestalt collab starting the 27th of this month! I wanna go so badly but I don't have anyone to go with.... even though I'll be in Tokyo on February 2nd....
The next day, exactly a year since I went there with Maren, we had a reservation at the Eorzea café , which is also in Akihabara. Square enix and Final Fantasy basically owns us both.
I want the Garuda coaster so bad but she refuses to come home. Now, onto the food!
This is the most mysterious thing I have eaten in my entire life. It had seashells and.... whatever those potato looking things are. No, they're not potatoes. They were squishy and kinda gummy like. I have never been more confused in my life, but the soup was good.
Absolutely in love with these desserts. Especially the Titan crepe Emy got.
Just look at him, being all tiny and not land sliding you off the platform. I'd rather die than do Titan EX one more time. Gosh, I really miss playing Final fantasy 14, but I haven't had the money for it lately. Maybe I'll have some time and funds to spare once spring break begins. Fingers crossed!
The store finally had the Fat Cat plushies in stock, so we both got one each and some t-shirts. I got the Moogle x Kirimi collab shirt and I'm really excited for the weather to get warmer so I can start wearing it!
We dropped by Artnia one day too, but we were too late and the bar was already closed. Oh well. Maybe next time! There's soon a 30th anniversary exhibit in Roppongi which I really want to go to. Why can't more things come to Kansai....
If you like final fantasy and happen to be in Tokyo, you should stop grab your friends and stop by these places too. Apart from Artnia they're all really easy to find!
