Where we usually spent the nights ♥ Our small apartment in Ikebukuro

Hi hi ♥
Today's the day I'm going to introduce our cute apartment to you ♥

It was great to stay there for 2 weeks and I can totally recommend it to everyone out there.
We got it through Grand House Chang Tee Hotel, about 400€ per person.
Checked in at the hotel at the first day, paid and didn't meet the staff ever again, haha.

This is the apartment by night ♥ see the lights at the door on second floor? This was our part of the house.

Apartment by daytime ♥ sun's shining just for our part of the house, haha ♥

You can't tell from the pictures above, but there's a little space right under the balconies.
Cat's seemed to like our apartment, too...there were a whole bunch of cats all the time ♥
We secretely called it "Neko-Club".
I think most of the cats were living on the street, but the neighbours kindly cared about them every day..
One night, it was around 1 or 2 am...I met one of the women who's taking care of their food and water ♥
I already miss these cats...♥ I never touched them, but I spoke to them and took photos, haha~ they liked it ♥
plus: they even sung for us from time to time

Well, let's take a look at the inside:

This was our bedroom. Japanese style - Futons.
I didn't expect it to be so comfortable!!
There was enough space for all the 5 of us and the sheets were warm and fluffy ♥
Oh there was an Aircon, too. You just can't see it in the photo above, haha.
Ah there even  was a huge cabinet on the right side...totally forgot to take a picture.

Maxi's piece of the bed...haha ♥
Hello Kitty with fake lashes, woohoo ♥


Small TV ♥ & a small piece of my part of the bed~

Traumfrau preparing our dinner in the kitchen ♥
We had a refrigerator, a microwave, a kitchen sink & a water boiler ♥
[The apartment looks so messy, haha~ sry]

Corridor ♥ the door is where you can see our shoes & the small cabinet~

Bathroom ♥
 (Fell in love with that shower)

Separate toilet ♥

Neko-Club again ♥


Right accross the street...another cat ♥

Coin Laundry~

Take a look at the sign...
The shirt says "Don't forget me...Don't leave me...PLEASE....!!!"

Part of the bedroom, Mew shaving her socks (yes, her socks).
"To remove the fluff" haha ♥

There was a supermarket and several convenience stores right around the corner...
look at the cute frogs/monkeys/idk.
Roof-Tree! ♥
[Our neighbour-house xD]

Creepy Tokyo-style digital power lines.

Looking down the street in front of our apartment.

Urghs...totally want to go back to Tokyo when looking at these photos.
Felt so nice to walk around with a conbini-bag...~

Alright..so...let's talk about the girl I met in Akihabara ♥

One of my penpals: Sayaka ♥

One of our must-go's: The Maid Café "@home"

Maid Café's are quite strange...but it's an amazing experience.
We've been lucky to have Sayaka with us...it was way easier to find everything with someone who's actually able to speak Japanese, haha ♥

"@home" offers English speaking maids, too ♥ so we chose one of them of course.

I'll explain my first visit...

1. take a lift to enter the café
2. get a paper with rules to enter the maid café (no photos allowed for example)
3. enter the café...smell old Otaku men
4. maid's ringing a bell...every single maid greeting us (oh my I turned into a red tomatoe)
5. take a seat and get candied by a maid...
6. choose your favorite maid and the menue you would like to enjoy
7. get your drinks...say "nya nya" before actually drinking it
8. get your food....say "moe moe chuuu" to "make it more delicious"..
9. get called to take your photo with your favorite maid
10. put on animal ears to pose on the photo...
11. go back to your seat....and die


This is what I got at @home:
Candy
Photo
Cosplay-Photo (It's Alois and Ciel (Kuroshitsuji) - Xmas Version)
Bag
Small instant towel 
Sticker

....and:


My own International Official Licence Card ♥ haha
Definitely going to visit them again...♥

And last but not least - beautiful Purikura xD
(damn that was kind of my "worst look"-day....)

Akihabara ♥ MOE MOE CHUUUU

Today I'm going to talk about my day in Akihabara
Going to split it into 2 entries...the next part will be about the persons I met & the stuff I bought there ♥.

Let's begin at the station.
You can clearly see the famous Gundam Café right in front of the Electric Town Exit.

There you go ♥
Unfortunately I didn't go in, time was running, ugh.
Next time ♥

This is what the streets in Akiba look like...really impressing.

Everything is so loud, colorful and huge.


Animate
8 floors full of Anime & Manga merchandise....amazing.
Quite overfilled with Otaku people, but you can look at everything if you're patient enough.


I didn't know how to react on all the small Otaku stores...
one side is filled with Anime stuff...the other side is filled with naked Otaku Idols.
It's like..you're walking in...."Aaahh! K-ON!!!" ...then you turn around and "OMG! That girl has some creepy boobs!!" (And I'm talking about real women, not Anime women).

Akihabara by night ♥.

Cute maids advertising for several cafés and stores.

Take a closer look at the picture above...TV sets...above their heads...this is how you advertise in Akihabara, yes. Bet it's hard to walk around with a TV on your shoulders for hours...poor women.

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt Car!!! Amazing!!

Just 4 words:
Exciting Adult Mega Store


Traumfrau posing with a well proportioned maid.
Unfortunately I didn't notice that you can change the words in the balloon...well, Spanish is ok, too. Haha.

Akihabara was exactly like I imagined it to be, not bad ♥

Part II is coming soon ♥

PS: 106 new followers since I started my Giveaway...holy sh*t....thank you so much!!

PPS: Noticed that there are almost NO WOMEN on my Akihabara photos. Speaks for itself.
