After having more sushi, we followed the direction of Kyle’s friend who told us there was an awesome dessert place off a stop like six away from Shinjyuku. Vague directions aside, we did find a place is this upscale-looking local area, after making a stop at a market that could be compared to a Gelsen’s in California. Because the dessert was so pricey, we shared two.
Christopher said it was gauche to order two desserts and share, as it was not done here. Indeed, the waiter looked startled at our request and didn’t understand it at first.
Next to the dessert, that’s my sparkly wrist bag wherein I kept my Suica card (the Subway pass). You need to beep it at the entry and exit gates of every station so they can deduct what you owe for the ride.
