✳AE86 Matsuri – Part 2✳

The AE86 event was at the top of the hill inside a mini theme park with area to hang out and take your family.  Kind of like a fun center but more in touch with nature.  There’s a small hole in the fence if you travel down the road and take a short cut through some small neighborhood.  We got a few odd looks from a few locals.  I bet they were thinking, “Why are two foreigners in this tiny street up on this mountain in the middle of nowhere.”  But it saved us some money when we had walked all the way from the station.

Right as we passed through the fence and walked up there were personnel for the event just a few yards ahead and we just tried to act super natural and walked by.

☆Up the hill to Sagamiko AE86 Festival – Part 1☆

Continuing on with the story from last week.  Gary dropped me off at Osaki Station and I lagged up the stairs while surfing through aimless apps on my iPhone.  I called up my buddy to see if he was going out and sure enough, he was already in Roppongi.  After basically missing the train to my house, on purpose I decided to head on over to meet up with him.  I caught one of the last trains which happened to terminate one stop before Roppongi so I walked from there all the way to him picking up a cold alcoholic beverage along the way.  The summer heat has faded in Tokyo and I had an enjoyable walk to the crossing where we met up.  In Roppongi we didn’t feel like going into any clubs really so we just idled outside talking to random girls and people watching.  A couple of my other friends were in Roppongi as well and came by to say hi.
