to my old school, ISSH. suprisingly they let me without any hassle to wander around freely. school wasn't in session, it was a parent-teacher conference day, so I explored the eerily familiar grounds proudly sporting my alumni visitor badge. i even got into my old kindergarten classroom!
many a skinned knee was had on this astroturf. the school had just had their annual international festival the week before, so i got to see pictures of that. I remember dressing up in my korean hanbok and mashing rice for mochi at the festival back in my day.
and back up another hill...
next, i headed to nearby roppongi.
at the entrance to the mori art museum, where i saw roppongi crossing, definitely the perfect pick for the only museum i was able to visit during my stay (contemporary works from mostly japanese artists).
after setting up shop at our luxurious capsule hotel, we headed back to roppongi for a night out. we ate at a fun spanish resturant and visited a dance club that provided hairstylists for the ladies free of charge. of course we had to try it...
let's just say there was backcombing involved. modeling our new do's with some girls we met at the club
the next day we visited the senso-ji temple in asakusa.
