Magical Tokyo〜☆ 2012⌒♡ part 1

Dear lovelies♥  It feels good to write here again after a short time I must say!  
I'm proud though today, I made it, finally! 
This will be the first part of many posts with pictures and talkings about my trip 
to Japan in last october/november! Yeahh! 
Only about 6 months later, I happened to feel like I had to, lol~( ///v///) 
But it's the result that counts, in the end!
So no more excuses and let me show you this first introduction post and of course, pictures!
 I apologize in advance for the bad quality of these first pictures (it was that day when you arrive exhausted and you only get to use your phone ahah)
anyway I loved to edit them to be more bright and kinda toy camera-ish~♥ 
Nakano Shimbashi, my true LOVE

Although it's only the second time I visit Tokyo I feel  like I found my very own home in this quiet, darling and lovely neighbourhood and I feel I couldn't stay in another place even though I'm very curious of course and I'd love to stay sometimes around other cool mid-central areas like Harajuku, Koenji, and  lots of others more~  
Nakano is really a lovely place to visit, I would recomment it to everyone!
From here you can for example walk to Shinjuku by foot in like 40 minutes, that's really not bad if you consider how long the distances usually are in this awesome huge city! 


There's something so fascinating to me about the thousands of electric cables all across the streets which you usually see drawing lines and geometric figures right above your head, I can't explain how this touches me and get me all emotional and in a dreaming mood but it does...
Here you can see the apartment windows, 
I was at third floor but my windows are not located by this side of the building~
Right down the street you have literally EVERYTHING you might ever need.


Three conbini, (one Seven Eleven, one Sunkus and one Family Mart) which you will easily switch from, depending on your pickyness and tastes lol.
Two italian restaurants, ahah this is so silly I know! But as a very pizza junkie as I am,
 I already know that at some point of the trip I WILL GO CRAZY if I won't have a good pizza.. huhu I'm such an obsessed girl (♥ // ㋭// ਊ// ㋲//)


This is another thing I absolutely adore about this part of Nakano, this cute red bridge which stands above a small stream, which I think belongs to Kanda river, but not sure, and where you can get a panoramic overlook at an amazing Shinjuku with skyscrapers and buildings~ 


This might sounds strange but I am in love with big metropolis sceneries eheh! 


Another street view of the long road which also has a subway line station, just called Nakano Shimbashi~ You have several shops and restaurants like, a very convenient and super good take away sushi shop, a ramen restaurant, a katsudon restaurant, various cosmetic shops, Pachinkos, a news-stand, and many others nice places~

That day I had a walk around Shinjuku to head off the apartments company office and get everything done, ahh everytime I see Shinjuku I die!
(wait this is actually a very popular proverb but about
 another city ahah)


Even taxy cars have bright and lovely design, a bit retro! 


You know I can't stop gazing and admiring and being all silly with my head up looking at how this city develops in height, rather than or not only in width.. this is quite fascinating to me also, considering I live in a very very different kind of city, which is Rome!


Also, skyscrapers are so friendly! ; v; Yeah, I said friendly.. when I walked down the street at night all alone.. watching those big, weird things all dominating from the above, with robot-looking red blinking lights and opened illuminated windows really made me feel like I wasn't alone, like if you always have something to look at and to feel close to. I know this may sound stupid but really that was pretty much the feeling I had! 


Some very nice place to spend some time at, eheh! 


Cute AKB48 board~♥




Lots of inviting ufo catcher over there, so so many!


 damn I don't always resist lol! 



Look at these chubby adorable silly Pompompurins, damn I was about to spend all my money trying to get at least 10 but then I remembered how these evil machines really can turn you out super poor if you're not good enough, and I'm not, ahah ; v; 


awww so cute! 


A classic but never old 太鼓の達人 (Taiko no tatsujin, one of my favourite eheh) game! 


I need someone who will feel enough crazy and silly to play with me for an hour in a neverending battle huhuhuhu! (๑•̀ुᴗ-) ̑



And for lunch that day I had some good sushi with green tea 


Loooook how thick  it actually is this salmon, aaah! Perfection 

 

And of course, as always, let's visit Takashimaya(a very nice shopping mall full of things),
  for sweet and darling and NECESSARY (╬ ಠ 益ಠ) (lol) stationery stuff like Little Twin stars (several) diaries/pens/memos which I will never use them all it's just obvious x3 
But I HAD to have them ; u ;



And it's all for today!! I hope you enjoyed a bit this story and pictures~  (◡ ‿ ◡ ☆ミ)
As I am super busy I will try to post twice in a week, hopefully!~~ 
Mata ne!

  2. Che bel resoconto! (Scusa, sono una capra in ingleseeee ;__;) A me di Tokyo piace il fatto che, come giri in una via diversa, puoi trovare la metropoli super affollata o degli scorci di quartieri tranquillissimi.... che bello perdersi in certe vie!!!
    Non vedo l'ora di leggere altri tuoi post!
