Another very expensive taxi ride, and I was back at the station. I grabbed an adorable Hello Kitty daruma doll bento and got to ride on the double decker Shinkansen to Omiya. Omiya is basically part of Saitama city, but apparently it's where the shinkansen stops, s I figured I would get off there. Originally I wanted t go somewhere else, but I saw it from the train on te way to Gunma, so I stopped on the way hme to shop. I enjoyed myself a lot, going in different shops, Jung earrings and such. And to top it off, they had a PAUL bakery, so I was in heaven!
