Earlier I posted about getting tickets to the L’arCafe at the Space Shower TV the Diner in Shibuya.  My reservation was for last night and it was awesome.  Space Shower TV the Diner is a pretty cool venue all by itself.  I’d be interested to check it out on a normal night.  If I knew enough people, it’d make a good party venue too.  The entryway has a screen that’s built into the floor and extends up into the counter, which was L’arc en Ciel themed.  The logo moved a different way if you stepped on it.  It was really cool.

Ken’s outfit, 20th L’Anniversary Live.

Yukihiro’s outfit, 20th L’Anniversary Live.  So skinny!

Hyde’s outfit, 20th L’Anniversary Live.

Tetsuya’s outfit, 20th L’Anniversary Live.

The costumes from Day 1 of the 20th L’Anniversary Live were also in the entryway, as was the goods table and posters from various points during the band’s career.  Seats were assigned.  We ended up sharing our table with two Japanese girls, who were extremely surprised when we sat down.  They were cute, they knew all the lyrics to the songs and would occasionally bust out hyde moves at the table.  I would wager that everybody who was there went to the 20th L’Anniversary Live in May.

You really couldn’t argue that you weren’t getting your moneys worth here.  In addition to the dinner buffet and dessert buffet, this box was placed at all the seats.  Hyde’s and Ken’s were savory; Tetsuya’s and Yukihiro’s were sweet.  To be honest, I didn’t like Ken’s.  Yukihiro’s was my favorite.

There was a video playing showing various performances in the band’s career with added commentary by the band members.  When the band members were talking, you could hear a pin drop in the restaurant.  I was kind of amused by how quickly the place came back to life when the video ended.  Oh and this happened:

This is weird even for Hyde.

Everyone also got this free plastic cup.  Overall, the atmosphere and the food were very good (there was so much of it!).  So glad I was able to go.

Goods: L’arcafe glass and accessories tray.

Impulse buy!  Never heard of this brand before, but this jacket caught my eye as I was walking by (as did the big sign that said sale).  Love the lining with the stars!

Vanilla Incense Labos, 2F, Parco Part 3.  Tokyo, Shibuya, Udagawa 15-1. Exit Shibuya station via Hachiko exit. No easy directions, click here for map.

Creators Marche is a section of 5F in Parco Part 3 (Shibuya) that has handmade items.  I saw a lot of beautiful jewelry and cute tchotchkes, but at this point I was running out of cash and my stupid bank only exists in Kyoto, so I bought a postcard and took the business cards of the jewelry makers I liked.

Monozoku is also on 5F in Parco Part 1 (Shibuya) and has various event-related goods.  It had a lot of Kaori Wakamatsu stuff, but I refrained and just got this postcard.  I liked a lot of the stuff in here, but as mentioned above, lack of funds, blah blah.

Shibuya Parco Part 1 and 3. Tokyo, Shibuya, Udagawa 15-1. Exit Shibuya station via Hachiko exit. No easy directions, click here for map.

Took a much needed trip to Tokyo.  First stop, of course the 109.  Picked up this super comfy sweater from LDS LoveDrugStore.

Their dressing room is also very…uh…interesting?  Click here for twitpic. (nsfw)

LDS LoveDrugStore, Shibuya 109 5F. Exit Shibuya station via Hachiko exit, bear left and cross the Shibuya crosswalk.  Keep going straight, it’s the giant, silver, cylindrical building and will likely have a mass of people entering/leaving it.  If you miss it; you are probably blind.
