The weekend of the 15th was a three day weekend, so we went to Tokyo on Saturday for a Wedding party and to sightsee a bit. It had been soooo long since we visited Tokyo, we were pretty excited about it! Our first stop was Shinjuku, where we went first to the Nikon floor of a tall building to get our various cameras and lenses cleaned. Kenji also got to see his new camera, which just came out and he should receive soon. He was so excited about it! After that and shopping in Shinjuku a bit, we headed to Shinagawa to where our hotel was located, had dinner, and went to bed a bit early.
Sunday night was our wedding party called a “nijikai”. Because it can get expensive and there are a lot of people you are “supposed” to invite to wedding ceremonies, in Japan there is often an after party where you can invite many more people than at your wedding. Wedding guests often come too, and it is usually much more relaxed than the wedding itself. The groom was an old friend of Kenji’s and since we had met once before, he was cool with me coming. Before that though, we headed to Odaiba for a Mexican Festival, which was awesome!

The next morning we checked out of the hotel and headed to Akihabara to go to Yodobashi Camera, as well as a cat cafe I’d heard about. The cafe was too busy to stay, but Yodobashi was even more so! After that we took a bus to Tokyo Sky Tree to get some pictures, then headed home in the evening. All in all it was a great weekend!
