Day 4:
Woke up early again, couldn't sleep, still not used to beds, felt kinda sick since a long flight, 2 days of sight seeing, and 3 nights of little sleep. Packed my stuff, went to Akihabara and dropped our stuff off at our new base, Washington Hotel. Met up with Alex's girlfriend, Ayae, she showed us around a little, went to Ueno for lunch, ate at the hard rock cafe in the subway station, it was delicious, almost 100% same as back home. Then went back to Akihabara, hung around there, went to a really large electronics store, "Yodobashi-Akiba", this place was HUGE, like 11-13 stories, and each floor is the size of a medium-sized best buy. I mean this place was just ENORMOUS, i loved it. Then we went to Odaiba (Daiba) and went to "Mega Web", Toyota's showroom of all its current and upcoming models, some concept cars as well, it also had a history garage with historic cars downstairs. Then we tried to get on the Large Ferris Wheel, but the line was more than an hour, so we bailed. Went to "Decks Tokyo Beach", a shopping mall with lots of stores, a food theme park, "Daiba Little Hong Kong", and "Tokyo Joypolis", three floors packed with the newest arcades. Saw the Rainbow Bridge from the Decks entrance. So Christmas is celebrated very differently in Japan  than in the US, first off, you spend it with a significant other, or friends, and it's like a joke, for example, we found a Christmas Haunted House in the mall, it was pretty funny, there's an evil santa with a rifle who is here to do bad things, so you're supposed to help good santa conquer evil santa (good santa also has a rifle, but he doesn't have a scary mask on, HAH! It was fun, and the spook level is comparable to an american haunted house, so that was good times. got tired, came home, slept!
