Japan Day 9, Trains are on time…always

Posted by

Well, maybe always is an exaggeration, but the point here is, you should always be on time…yeah, I think you see where this is going…I woke up with plenty of time to get to the train station, but I just lounged around. I did make it to the train with 2 minutes to spare, so no time to grab any food 😦

So, the 3.5 hour train ride until the next stop is going to suck a little…they do sell food on the train, but it’s a bit higher in price and not as delicious as the bento boxes I could get at the train station. Fortunately, there is a 20-minute stop at Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto station.

I ended up getting a bento box at the station…actually…I might end this post here. I didn’t do much, I took the train to Tokyo, went to a Meetup and came back to my hotel. The only interesting thing to note is that I went to Shibuya crossing, I tried a burger (which if you’re American, the burger was sort of weird) that was essentially a teriyaki burger with lettuce and cream cheese, and I’m not sure what the big deal is about Shibuya crossing…I mean…yes…there are a lot of people…but the crossing itself isn’t as big as it looks on TV.

Not as bright and big as Ginza, but close

Mille crepe…I want to try and make this at home
