I took that photo as we were saying our goodbyes. You were headed to the bullet train headed for Mt Fuji and we were headed to the airport. This is also where we were super lost the first night and you found an English speaking man to help us.
The hour long train ride to the airport was much more exciting during the day. We got a glimpse of the countryside once we got out of Tokyo. Fun fact, this particular Monday seemed to be laundry day because there were so many apartments with their clothes hanging out to dry.
We had a lot of time to wait at the airport. This place was huge and there was almost no one there. We did some more shopping and finally found our own Gudetama plushie WITH a butt crack. I was pretty happy. We also bought cantelope flavored kitkats, which taste like captain crunch. We lucked out and snagged a couch by a charging station, then we realized there was a whole lounge downstairs with couches and chairs and a TV. Swanky.
We had lots of leg room on our flight back because we chose the front seats behind 1st class. Not sure it was worth the distance to our TV screens though. We were landing in Portland in the morning so I watched the sky turn as we crossed the ocean. It was a much shorter flight on the way back as we flew straight across and didn’t go all the way up to Alaska. We also stopped in LA and then home. I was missing Japan already. Let’s go back!
