Gundam Cafe- Akihabara Japan

Garion more than anything else wanted to buy as many Gundams he could while in Tokyo. He wanted to buy a super large one, but it would not fit in our suitcase – he did purchase five normal sized model kits. So we decided to surprize him with a Gundam Cafe Visit. Gundam’s are a Japanese science fiction media animation series that features giant robots (mecha).  

Tip: Check out web sites before heading over to a special tourist cafe, as sometimes you HAVE to have a reservation, or they open at weird times.

I can’t stop smiling!

In his complete Glory of happiness!

So we had a snack and Garion ate, everything – a blue soda drink a Hamburger and fries. He could not be happier, and that makes all of us super happy.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)

      1. Yes! When I lived in Guam alot of my friends were from Japan and when they went back for a visit I always requested a few and robotech toys as well. The good old days. Now they are super expensive to buy. They have a Gundam planet store here with many cool ones but super expensive.

  1. I bought a Gundam model when I was there as well, and of course I went to Odaiba to see the life-size, 80-foot-tall Gundam in front of Diver City, a mall with an entire floor dedicated to Gundam. (It’s called Gundam Base.)

    I remember Gundamns fondly from childhood and it’ll be fun putting the mode together, as soon as I print out instructions in English.

    And you’re right about the prices. I couldn’t believe how much cheaper they were than in the States.

    1. We did not see the life sized Gundam, but we wanted to – just ran out of time. There is so much to do over there, I could have spent another 3 months just in Tokyo alone, and a year in Japan just seeing the things I wanted to.
