Title: 09. Tokyo Journey – Day 2
Written on 2010.02.24 at 06:06 AM
Since it was getting darker in Harajuku1 with the shops closing the doors soon,
I left to look for ‘Tokyo City Hall’2~~
However there was trouble finding it………
I clearly had to go somewhere around the Shinjuku station3…mmh….
Since Japan has overly expensive cab fares I couldn’t bring myself to take a cab,
so I had to walk in order to find everything ㅎㅎ
I walked blindly although I should’ve asked!
While doing so I found out I wrongly was on the way to
‘Since you’ve seen the rice cake, you should spend time on ancestral rites’5!!! ㅎㅎ and since I was there I took a look here and there
I continued walking this and that way,
so what when a tout6 asked me with an inarticulated command of Korean if I’d like to “have a drink maybe?”
I said “이이에 (いいえ no)”7 once and when I was going to turn around
I asked ‘도쿄 도쪼와 도꼬데스까~?’8
He totaaaa~~ aaally pointed towards the opposite way
so once again I began the strenuous walk…………ㅠ

5 It’s a proverb, it means that if you’ve done one thing, you might as well do something related.
7 Japanese for iie, it means no.
8 Japanese for “Where is Tokyo City Hall?” written in Korean characters.
