Hello Kitty in the "Entertainent" District
Kabukicho is the "entertainment" district of Tokyo. There are thousands of hostess clubs, snack bars, massage parlors, izakayas, etc. If you are a guy, and you walk around alone at night, you will be offered sex and drugs constantly. It's a very colorful and interesting area. There are many yakuza, but it's very safe. After that, you can go to the Hello Kitty flagship store across the street.
歌舞伎町 は 東京 の 催し物 の 区。 千 キャバクラ と スナク と マッサゲ と 居酒屋 あります。 男の人 は 一人 で 行って、セックス と ドラッグ を 売ります。 とても 面白い ね。 たいへん やくざ います、 でも 安全です。 あとで、キティ-ちゃん の 店 に 行きます。
I lasted about one minute in this place. It was an overload of pink Kitty madness.
The ginormous statue out front was new and actually made the news a few times. Yes, Kitty and her million friends are popular in Japan. Yes, I have Kitty cell phone straps. No, I don't have them attached to my phone.
I took a couple photos, but by then the taste of bile was growing strong in my throat. I needed something to neutralize Kitty and her cuteness. Did you know that she has no mouth because she communicates with her heart? That's an official statement from Sanrio Corporation. Ok, I need the polar opposite of this. One doesn't have to walk far. Right across the street is this little gem.
