#JKASIA17 Day 14: Calm Before the Storm

So, apparently there was suppose to be a thunderstorm today.. so I got ready and headed out to explore Ikebukuro before it gets messy. I kicked off with my daily dose of c1000 shot, and started roaming the streets.  

Ikebukuro is actually quite a destination for anime lovers. As well as a EVA cafe where you can buy merch & toys there as well! I stopped by a cafe called Coffee Valley, where immediately upon arrival I already saw three people with camera taking photos of them holding up their orders in front of the shop. I scoped around the spot, quite aesthetically pleasing with little green plants placed at every corners of the second floor. The seating was full so I went downstairs and ordered a latte. Cool little spot, they also take VISA so, yummy in my credit card! 

then, I went off for some... what @khoki told me, a new thing called Urban Exploring around Ikebukuro, and stopped by a 7 floor anime & toy store called Animate,  then slowly made my way back home before the storm approach. 

 

Which, I really didn't feel like there was a storm.
