Reunited in Shibuya!

It's been a long time coming, but a few of us who participated in Nogyaru rice harvesting decided to meet up for a girl's day out in Shibuya! Naturally the entire event turned into a huge photo session for everyone, so I managed to take quite a few photos. It was all brought together by Maki, so I'm so grateful to her that I got to see everyone again.
Maki managed to reserve us our own snug little corner in a restaurant called PUBLIC HOUSE. Once everyone who could come was assembled, we started off with brunch!
Mayu and I got this hamburg dish. Unfortunately I wasn't able to finish it. There was just way too much food!
Everyone else got this spaghetti dish. I kinda wish I had gotten it too considering it looks delicious even now!
The desert. I was a bit too full to get one myself though.
A picture I managed to snap of Mei and Nami during our conversing. We talked about a lot of things, from differences between America and Japan, to job searching, to dieting and exercise, and naturally a lot more topics came up. I managed to learn a few new words too!
All of us assembled. From left to right: Me, Mayu, Maki, Nami, and Mei.

Some of the graffiti that can be found around Shibuya.
An advertisement for EXILE's new album. I tripped on the sidewalk and twisted my ankle shortly after this shot. Unfortunately it still hurts a bit now.

Art meets Mode advertisement.

Naturally, the next place we went was an arcade so we could take purikura!
A couple of the purikura machines. There were so many that it was hard to choose which machine to use!
A sign advertising their stamp card services.
After we chose a random one, the purikura machine gave us this pack of eyelashes as a gift. No one really wanted them, so I ended up taking them.
 Deciding how to divide up the purikura...
Which turns into an opportunity for a silly photo!
The purikura we took together.

After purikura, we decided to head into the next building over for some karaoke.
We got the party room! Which was a bit unfortunate for me since we sat all the way in the back. I had some trouble reading some the lyrics because they were blurry for me without my glasses.
Everyone wanted to hear me sing in English, so I kicked our karaoke session off with Bad Romance.
Other songs we sung were AKB48's Heavy Rotation and the classic Stay Away by L'Arc~en~Ciel. Surprisingly, Shoujo Jidai and KARA songs were also sung (in their Japanese versions, of course).

After our hour and a half of fun we all headed our separate ways. However we did leave with plans to meet up again next day to do cherry blossom viewing. I'm really looking forward to it!
