  • I wanted to go to Litlte Tokyo! I had been probably 10-15 years ago and it was so much fun, and I also loved Japantown in San Francisco. So I assumed Little Tokyo would be wonderful.






    Almost nothing was open when we arrived!




    But the scenery was nice. Well, kind of. OK, not really. There were people begging for money and we passed an area that from the smell, my mom whispered that she thinks they had cats there. Given how hard restrooms are to come by in the area (a problem we faced later), I do not think it was cats. (It was NOTHING like ANYTHING I saw in Tokyo, by the way. The closest would be under the bridge by the train station where we happened to see one homeless person, but I don't remember that being dirty.)

    The grocery store was very nice, though.

    I really wanted a boba drink (aka bubble tea) and we ended up crossing the street to get one.






    The lid was ill-fitting, but it was a pretty good drink. (I was also able to pick up a Pocari Sweat sports drink for another friend who had always wanted to try one.)






    "There may not be restrooms, but at least there are a few places to sit."




    My friend got treated poorly in several shops (she's so unlucky!). One shopkeep did think Shellie May was adorable, but she thought she was a sheep!


    The Sanrio store did have Hello Kitty pressed pennies, so that was nice for me.




    So yeah, we did not really enjoy Little Tokyo. We weren't sure what else to do, but my best friend had always wanted to see/get her picture taken by the office building from Remington Steele, and we had nothing better to do, so one exorbitant parking fee later....



    "Yay?"

    Traffic was GHASTLY going back to our room. We ended up eating at a Panera Bread where I got a decent but overpriced sandwich and my mom got a salad that she enjoyed quite a bit until she found a hair near the bottom. Kind of capped off our day.

    "At least sunset from our room was pretty!"




    This was one of those vacations that I was almost ready to just go home, which is good because we headed back the next day. But we still had a little fun left.

    • Hi, Eeee-va, that shrimp breading looks like tempura instead of the crumbly breading, and I love grilled vegetables.

      Lovely view from your room.

      Downtown Nashville has areas that smell like pee, also, and not from cats! EW!
