Avast, me hearties! A million apologies for yesterday’s technical difficulties. (My server ran aground… but we’re back to smooth sailing now.)

Are you ready to watch the first of several Dutch Pepsi TV episodes? Keep scrolling down — the video is in this post!

As you know, I wrote a book about Tokyo’s Crazy, Wacky Theme Restaurants. So I took the Netherlands TV crew to the Alice in Wonderland cafe, where we were served by cute Alice waitresses. The cute food included tuna/avocado caterpillar sushi, eggplant/salmon Cheshire Cat pizza, and a cereal/fruit sundae.

In Wonderland, the menus take the form of pop-up books. Ilya turned the puff pastry cat into a Scottish Fold, in Basil Farrow’s honor.

After, we met up with the rest of the Addams Family at Pasela Karaoke (the parlor famous for the big toast dessert — remember this blog post?) When singing is involved, things turn scary. As you’ll see in the video, Mistress Maya freaked even US out!

We celebrated my birthday with wine and one of Pasela’s bizarre concoctions. Yes, it’s a loaf of white bread with cream, fruit, flowers, and zig-zag Pikachu tails sticking out of it. The Dutch TV crew kindly brought me gifts from Amsterdam (including a Miffy t-shirt!) and we all had a goofy time singing together.

The TV crew went back to their hotel, but the nightcrawling never ends for us creatures of the night. Absinthe was calling our name, so we went to Bar PSY in Kabuki-cho for a fix. (What am I wearing? My outfit details can be found in this post.)

Ready to see a moving picture of the first Pepsi adventure? Come watch the video above or here on YouTube. (Please subscribe so you won’t miss out on the next episodes.)

What do you think — did Pepsi do a good job of capturing our flamboyant, Gothic scene? Wouldn’t you like to join in on the fun?

Japanese Word of the Day: Otona = Adult
Song of the Day: Alanis Morissette – You Oughta Know. Why? If you check out the video, you’ll know — and LOL.

    All that food looks so good! I really want to visit Japan, but I’m vegan do you think I’d have a hard time finding good places to eat? Especially desserts because I have a BIG sweet tooth.

    Boy I loved the episode very nicely done and gave the nice smooth progression of being in Harajuku – of course it’s just the 1st episode so there’s even still more to come. nnNow that Alice in Wonderland themed restaurant is a place I’ll definitely have to go. Just got to see it for myself despite hearing for myself. But……there’s something stopping me from going there. – WHERE IS THE MADHATTER?! Jeese I played the guy for my highschool play and this is the kind of respect the character gets? C’mon please tell me there’s the Madhatter! Boy would I love to have a cup of tea with him hahaHAHAHAHA!!!!nnBut god I would love to have as much fun as the cowgirl did near the end. hehe – how cute…nnKeep having funnn
