Friday headed to Ikebukuro again, thinking that I might be catching up with the "The Celestial Railroad" show I mentioned few days ago.
The location is at Sunshine City Ikebukuro, which hosted an education fair months ago. This time I went along with 2 hostelmates.
Wasn't that lucky as it was Friday and the whole complex were flooded with people! Lately it's the summer holiday so you can see parents bringing their kids around here and there.
The show I'm supposed to watch, was fully-booked.
Well at least we still have something to enjoy....
Naruto's artworks exhibition on top of the observatory deck at the 60th floor.
Have to pay 620 yen for the ticket though.
The elevator that brought us to the top of the observatory deck was moving rather fast, at 600m/min rate. I jokingly asked my friend, jumping down from top of the building and taking the elevator, which'll be faster? Heh....
View of Tokyo city from the observatory deck!
Tokyo Dome spotted!
Ikebukuro station + shopping malls.
Not sure what the tower's function.

On the way back to the train station. Crowded!
I like Ikebukuro! It's actually a nice place to do shopping or hangout, but the crowd is a problem.... so try to come here during weekdays or working hours!
