After arriving in Narita airport a good 15 hours later, I headed to my hotel and set out to get the basic trip supplies such as a data simcard and coffee in Ikebekuro a few train stops away from my hotel.

Sugamo, Toshima, Tokyo, Japan

On the way back I decided not to take the train but walk through the neighbourhoods and it wouldn't be Japan if you don't stumble upon a temple every now and then.

After a short nap I wandered around the neighbourhood and found myself in an alley near a temple where they had all kinds of stalls with street food. Due to the jetlag I wasn't keen on getting a full dinner so these Takoyaki (octopus ball) were perfect!
