The Golden Week Road Trip: Movie Night

The day after our drive up from Chiba, we were back in the car and heading to Costco to pick up things for our movie night.

Living in the city, I tend to forget that in some places a car is a necessity, and not just a luxury. I've never had a problem not having a car in Tokyo. Especially when renting a parking lot is so expensive. But every now and again, I like sitting in a car and not have to be squished against hundreds of people on the train. 

So with my sister at the wheel, we sped off to Costco. It's the best place to buy certain things like a box of navel oranges or paper towels by the bulk. We also got a couple (and by couple, I mean a shopping cart full) of other things, too. I totally blame the size of the shopping cart.

Next, we stopped by Tsutaya to choose our movies. Our general rule is, each one of us chooses a movie we want to see. Also, no complaining about someone else's choice!

I chose The Magic Hour, a hilarious Japanese movie directed by Koki Mitani. My sisters chose Mirror Mirror, the Julia Roberts movie of Snow White, and Iron Man II, because this was the only one we hadn't seen in the series yet.

We maybe got ice cream, too.

Finally, we headed home to start the movie marathon. It seems like we all like movies with a touch (or depending on the movie...a large dosage) of comedy. We pretty much laughed our heads off throughout the whole night! But then that is what movie nights are all about. x

Here are some photos:

Sippin' on the new banana frappuccinos...yum!

The drive-thru drinks from Starbucks wish you a safe trip :D

My sister got the Mango Passion Frappuccino!

Our shopping cart looked like this at the end...not too bad for three girls, right?

My baby sister stocking up on things she'll use at school.

We ate lunch at Costco and had their ever large slices of pizza.

I can never manage to finish the whole slice...I mean, look at it. It's bigger than my face!

We got ice cream, too. My double chocolate cheesecake and hawaiian crunch was amazing!

Taking a group sister shot with our ice nights are the best!
