Lost in Translation in Tokyo - Part 1

I was had an opportunity to visit one of my dream city, Tokyo, 2 weeks ago. 
It was a business trip actually. But since I always put some fun on my works, I did a little exploration there. Alone. From total 5 days in Tokyo, I had opportunities to explore Tokyo around 3,5 days. Not bad..
I stayed at a Hotel near Tokyo Station. So I had opportunities to explore Marunouchi (around the hotel), Okachimachi, Akihabara, Harajuku, Shibuya, Shinjuku, and Ikebukuro.
And since I don't speak Japanese and was failed to learn Japanese on high school, I was lost in translation there. I don't speak Japanese, and mostly of people there don't speak English or Bahasa. So I used the universal language: smiles and hand-body gestures! A lil bit funny actually, but still we could communicate somehow.
Here are some pictures for you to enjoy.
