We packed up in the morning and headed to downtown Tokyo with Yukiko. It took quite a while and it was so expensive! Public transit in Japan is very pricey. We got off at Tokyo station and then went for lunch. We went to the McDonalds there, to the 3rd floor! There was an awesome view of the street from where we were. It was funny, Yukiko lived in New York for a while and she said to me 'At McDonalds in North America do you have have meals with TWO cheeseburgers?' I laughed, 'Of course we do" I said, 'I get it all the time, it's really popular'. She could not believe it! I think thats hilarious, here the 2 cheeseburger meal is so popular. Maybe thats why the Japanese population is much smaller than everyone here...
After that we wandered around the streets of Tokyo, to Harajuku. I was so excited to be there, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about! It was a really cool section of Tokyo, everything was so different and interesting, I loved it! We didn't have long to spend in Tokyo, which I was a little sad about. We went back to the train station and said goodbye to Yukiko. We took the Shinkansen train back to Osaka to stay with Hiroko again.
