tokyo-skytree-areaThe morning after our adventure from Nikko, we decided to just roam around the city and probably go to Akihabara to check on some goods that I can sell and for our private collection.

For lunch, we opted to go to Tokyo Sky Tree for two reasons, we haven’t gone there yet and there’s a PPAP cafe!

To those who don’t know what PPAP is, it’s a song done by Pikotaro which translates to Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen. Here’s the video for those who don’t know what it is:

For the lulz, we decided to go and eat there. It was something unusual and only Japan can do these kinds of things. And yes, there’s a PPAP long version. 😀

Tokyo Sky Tree Town is massive and upon entering the vicinity, I had to ask a couple of staff as to where the PPAP cafe is located. Apparently, it’s on the other side of the area and it was drizzling. The actual sky tree is not visible due to the rain clouds when we reached the 3rd floor where a roof top garden is located.tokyo-sky-tree-cafe

The actual cafe is small, shared with Bungo Stray Dogs Cafe which unfortunately, I am not a fan of. It’s hilarious that the whole menu for the PPAP cafe has the same initials as the famous song. For example, we ate a Pancake Pineapple Apple Pancake. They even serve a chocolate pen in which you can plunge into the awaiting meal.

The location is connected with a shop that sells anime merchandise. On the other side of the building, the Pokemon Center is located where I bought a lot of merchandise for a friend who wants to have official Pokemon goods.

Another thing that I was searching for is items to add to my growing collection of Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune.

We ended the day by eating more Nabemono with potential guests for our next year’s event. It was a very productive day. 🙂
