Lottery winners! Ari and Eri!

Today we won in a small lottery that was held at the local supermarket. Always when we shopped there we got these yellow tickets and after you have gotten 4 of them you can join one time to the lottery ( we had 8).

Dinner at Shinjuku Izakaya

Today I will make a post about the Tokyo motor show but first I want to share couple of photos about our pleasant evening at a cheapish izakaya in Shinjuku. We haven’t eaten in many of these 270yen izakayas together so we decided to have a try. (Normally we go to better places as you might have seen from the photos I have taken)

That particular evening the izakaya we chose had a discount evening, everything 250yen (+tax)… Super cheap but the quality is what it is, not saying that it is bad but not the best either.

Beer was good my fried chicken and eggs were great, my girl also ordered some other dishes for us.

We tried to not to get too full since the party started already at 7pm. We arrived to Shinjuku about 5pm I’d say. We quickly wanted to go for a smoke near the shinjuku station and we noticed that there was a live band and I decided to video it a bit, very good actually.

I wanted to go to Shinjuku’s famous Kabukicho area to take photos since the last spring I was in Japan, all the beautiful NEO lights were off because saving electricity.

I got some photos taken that I have always wanted to take in japan. I’m going back there later with more time to get some even better photos as well !

Here are some for y’all !

We went to gaming hall to play few games like mario cart and this crazy pirates game 😀  I actually won my girl in Mario Cart which is a miracle since she is a mario cart master ! I got lucky I’d say 😀

Time was catching up to us and it was already 6.45pm so we decided to go infront of the Izakaya to wait for everyone else ( I am the host and all ). I like to be early for everything as well.

Party went very well ! was in one of my most favorite izakaya in Japan. Delicious food and great company, what else could you ask for ?.. Beer ? we had that heh more then enough since we took a party menu we could drink as much as we wanted.

You may have seen that party video I took (last post), but here are some edited photos as well from that night.
