All the nice ones are probably way too expensive. I stayed in the APA Hotel in Roppingi; whatever might be said about Roppingi, it was a darn nice hotel.Roppongi
is full of clubs... but that's all I know about it from the one street I was in. ... Hey! Perfect time to tell this story!
So, it was the night before my departure, so all of the people in my group (we were all students participating in a study abroad program) decided to go to the clubs in Roppongi. Anyhow, so I had a single shot because whatever, being social, I suppose. I couldn't last much longer, though because I'm not really the dancing kind and the people there were just... I don't know, strange to me. But I decided to leave after seeing these two members of my group (disgustingly) making out with girls that were not their girlfriends (as in, they had girlfriends on the time, and they were... doing this with other girls).
So I left that club, alone. I did tell one person that I was heading back to the hotel. Anyway, it was 1 am and I thought I knew the way. Has to go past the 7-11, near Tokyo Tower (which was unlit at that hour, unfortunately, or it would've been a waypoint for me), and walk near a graveyard.
Well, I found the 7-11 and the graveyard, but not Tokyo Tower. Furthermore, the graveyard obtained this strange aura of creepiness that wasn't there when I was with the group. It had those stones to honor children who died. Anyway, that was creepy.
So, I got lost. I got past the graveyard, found this woman exercising (at 1 am?!) and decided to ask her for directions. Since she was jogging, I had to jog to catch up to her. I ask her for directions, she answers, I thank her and I... jog away. I jog until I realize that I didn't need to be jogging. So I keep walking in the direction until I get lost again and I'm in this alley. I see this man walking about and I don't know what came over me, but I was like "let's ask him!" He pointed me in the right direction and was very nice about it.
And I found my way back to the hotel.
But yeah... It was more terrifying for me when I was there, and it doesn't even seem all that big now that I'm recounting it... Meh.
