Some more pictures from our day in Ikebukuro shot with my new canon 24-105mm lens. First we met up with Toshi at the station. Then he took us to this amaaaazing 9 floor book store where we didn't have neerly enough time or money to spend. We spend the most time on the ninth floor where the art section was. Found some really nice reference books and the rest will have to wait till next trip. After that we took our first trip to Tokyo Hands. For those who isn't familiar with this piece of heaven on earth, the fastest way to describe it is: What ever you need, they have! That store has (almost) every thing from tiny gears to kitchen ware to custumes to stickers that says that you aren't allowed to flip the table no matter how angry you are...to new fishing poles to that strange piece of plastic that you don't know what is called but you need for that other thing...well you get the point.
But since the Tokyo Hands in Ikebukuro isn't as big as the one in Shinjuku we decided to go to that one too...just to see if we missed out on something and ofcause we found a few extra things. After that it was time to head back to Koenji and hook up with the Ink Rats. Scroll down a bit and see who the story continues.
