After crashing at Hello House last night, I went Christmas shopping in Asakusa with Lux and Zoe. Christmas shopping is pretty easy when living in Japan because basically everything is a unique Christmas present. I ended up spending too much money, but I got nearly all of my shopping done. Also, the stores wrapped everything nicely for me too. The street leading up to the temple in Asakusa is a great place for souvenir and gift shopping.
We ate lunch in a really cool Chinese restaurant near the temple. I had ramen loaded with seafood. Yum!
I ended up having way too much stuff to get back to Numazu with by myself. I packed as much as I could, and left the rest at Hello House to pick up before I left the country.
(2014 Update) I found out about a month later that having the gifts wrapped was not a smart idea. Stay tuned!
