Yesterday, Joanne and I (a friend from Brock who is living in Tokyo) met in Omiya to SHOP. What a great experience. The train station has a department store right in it... then, you walk outside, cross over your choice of overpasses, and enter one of the giant, overwheming 8 or 9 story department stores. We barely made a dint in even ONE of the department stores. But that's okay... gives us a lot of shopping experiences to look forward to. I can't believe I didn't take pictures of all the fu fu clothing we saw. Don't worry, our styles haven't changed too much... YET. Our biggest purchases were still made at the Gap. How boring.
