Tokyo IV

Sorry to blog it up so much lately. it's pretty interesting here though, and what else am i gonna do sitting a computer all day?

About to go to this dept. store "don quijote." I wanna get something interesting. My coworker's like "you can get american shampoo there!" Yes... that is exactly what i have been looking for here in tokyo.

Here's my favorite part of the wikipedia entry on don quijote:

In 2005, Don Quijote began building a 'half-pipe' roller coaster on the roof of its eight story Roppongi store. Roppongi is a heavily populated area in the core of Tokyo, and many residents and businesses were upset with the idea of having a roller coaster in their neighborhood because of the spectacle, noise and crowds it will likely create. The project was completed in 2006, but due to increasing pressure from concerned groups in the area it has never been operated. The giant steel structure continues to sit silently atop the store to this day.


it sits... FORBODINGLY
