After our little adventure at Ueno Park and Ueno Zoo, we went straight to Ikebukuro. It was already 2 P.M. and we haven’t had a decent meal. As a result, we went food hopping at three different places — J-World Tokyo, NamjaTown, and Adores Collaboration Cafe.
Late Lunch at J-World Kitchen
We were lucky (yet again) that Haikyuu!! has a special event at J-World. This time, I ordered a Hinata x Kageyama Omurice meal + a Nekoma strawberry fizz drink. As for the big Easter Egg patty, you’re allowed to choose the design.
Well, what can I say? I’ve always loved J-World Kitchen. The food is delicious, the servings are big, and they’re worth the price. What’s more is you get free postcards per order!
Haikyuu!! Karasuno Easter
The Haikyuu!! area is still the same, except that there are giant eggs beside the vending machine. It was plain last year with only Karasuno and Aoba Josai’s banner on the wall.
If you want to play the steamed bun mini game in front of it, you have to insert 300 yen at the ticket vending machine (left side). I wasn’t able to take a video, but the game goes like this:
- The staff will give you a tray and a tong.
- Choose among all the buns (not real) inside their makeshift steamer.
- Get one out and place it on your tray. One ticket is equivalent to one bun.
- Hand over the tray, tong, and bun to the staff when you’re done.
- The staff will peel off the bottom part (the “wax paper” when you buy legit steamed buns).
- The prize you’ll get depends on what’s written underneath the bun you chose.
As for me, I got a Sugawara Koushi keychain! The design is the same as the ones on the wall.
J-World Tokyo has many other attractions. If you’re a big Shounen Jump fan, you’ll love it here. They have One Piece, Naruto, Boruto Next Generations, D.Gray-man, and Gintama. You can lose track of time, and I’m serious about that.
