Japan Day #4

Kathsgrdn

Day #4 was spent in Tokyo on our own. We went to Shibuya and saw Hachiko's statue. The famous dog who waited for his master at the train station, long after the master had died. Crossed the famous mass crossing in Shibuya, had a sad pedicure and ate at Hooters because we all were craving chicken wings.


The pedicure was disappointing. It was raining and my feet were hurting, thought going inside and pampering ourselves would be nice, nice warm foot soak. Nope. All they did was scrape off the old polish, file the toenails and then apply the new polish. They did give us some tea to drink while we sat there. The little salons here in my little town, soak your feet, scrub the rough spots, massage your legs, apply softening lotion to your feet and legs before cleaning up your nails and finally applying polish. While they work on your feet they apply a hot towel to your legs. And it's about $20 cheaper than in Shibuya. It was on a very touristy street, though. It would've been worth it if only they let your feet soak in warm water.


At Hooters we met a group of middle aged guys from New Zealand so they invited the girls to have pictures taken with the Hooter girls as we all were leaving.

Hatchiko. Long line to get your picture with him so I just went off to the side and tried to only get him, didn't quite do it.
