random 7-11s, Tokyo

Throughout my trip in Japan, I stopped by several 7-11 stores. I really liked their onigiri and green tea ice creams!   Definitely recommend stopping by 7-11 stores in Japan. Much better than the US, in so many ways!


Gaburi Chicken, Shibuya

Walked past this place randomly while going to and from my room, and had to get some fried chicken!   Lots of folks inside.   It was ok.

I'm glad that the smokers sat at the opposite end lol. I didn't realize there was indoor smoking at this place. Fortunately, it only affected … Continue reading Chatei Hatou, Shibuya
