Tokyo Diary Part 4

Our first agenda for our 4th day in Japan was to hear mass at a catholic church. It was a really nice experience since there were a LOT of Pinoys there and they were very friendly. They were so helpful in helping us locate yet another ramen place that was highly recommended by the guys we met up with on our second night in Tokyo.

Ichiran is located in the Roppongi district and has a classroom setting for a serious ramen experience.

You customize your ramen according to your preference!

It was a rainy afternoon but we braved it and walked to the The National Art Center also found in Roppongi.

The National Art Center is so beautiful and we happened to be there when a really large exhibit for amateur artists was ongoing. They gave us stickers before entering to serve as our votes for the paintings we liked best!

We ended the night with a fabulous Tempura dinner – Jim’s treat – to celebrate our engagement!:)

I had the worst scare in my life after stepping out of the restaurant. It was really cold so I put on my jacket and shook my arms. Believe it or not, my ring flew off my finger!!!!!!!! GRABE!!!! It was 1.5 sizes too big for my finger (uyyy, feeling payat) and we all panicked for a good 1 minute until somebody (I don’t even remember which one of us) found it really close to a sewer!! Hahahaha bwisit!!! So I started wearing it on my middle finger so it would be tighter. Now, it’s been resized to a perfect fit and I’m so so so happy – I’m never taking this off <3

    Whoooaaa…so stoked that you went to my favorite ramen place in Japan, Ichiran! :D Whenever I go there, I always order extra chashuu (boiled pork) and their soft boiled egg. Your photos make me want to have Ichiran ramen right now! Is the church you went to the Franciscan Chapel Center? (I’m only guessing since it’s the only Catholic church I know in Roppongi..hehe..) I sometimes go there too, but it’s a bit far from my apartment. Roppongi has lots of night clubs too. And it can get crowded and noisy during Friday nights and weekends but the streets are still amazingly clean.
