Day 3

Halloween! We spent the day at Universal Studios Japan, where we joined everyone in dressing up, went on some fun rides, enjoyed all the Halloween cuteness and met Hello Kitty! We also managed to squeeze in a quick visit to Aranzi Aronzo.

Day 4

A quiet day, packing up and heading back to Tokyo on the Shinkansen. We were treated to some incredible views of Mt Fuji before it quickly hid behind the clouds again. Once checked in to our awesome apart-hotel, we had a wander around Harajuku to see all the kawaii shops.
