ippam - international public policy and management. due to its international flavor, i was blessed with becoming friends with many japanese nationals. this is one of the reasons i decided on visiting japan.
i was to meet them at the hachi statue (see "day one" post - hachiko: a dog's story), located at the shibuya station at 7:30pm, friday march 19th. i had 3.5 hours to kill before i met up with my friends from ippam.
so i wandered...
ramen was in store.
it says most welcome by locals, so i went in.
take my word for it, it was oh-ishi (delicious)!
and since i am writing this post, that means my friends eventually found me...
...oh how i miss you guys! feels like los angeles again.
i must also thank all of you for that meal. oh-ishi!!! arigato.
this "map" looks like one of the presentations my japanese classmates would mastermind.
i see where they get their inspiration.
