Regardless of the weather, Hachiko the dog faithfully saw his master off to work in the morning and waited for his return in the afternoon at the Shibuya station. When his master died, Hachiko continued to wait at Shibuya station for his master to return.

We ended the day by getting our karaoke on where Lost in Translation was filmed.

Ordering songs and food. The cacophony of mic, phones, speakers, talking and singing was out of control.

Why, yes, my toddler is singing in a karaoke bar at 9 o'clock at night. It's only noon in America.

Photos in today's globetrotting story were taken by Dr. Ricci Sylla.

Ricci is an ObGyn by profession, and an avid, snap-happy photographer at all other times. She likes taking pictures mostly of food, but since the recent population explosion in her family, cute nieces and nephews show up much more frequently in her Picasa files. She hearts cake, ice cream, macarons, cotton candy and fancy desserts!
