Tokyo! The girls dance around. Ann, who is historically afraid to fly, says she was glad to get off the plane, but had no nervous breakdowns during the flight. The girls meet Koko Niwa, their adorable tour guide. Nicole interviews that Tokyo is crowded and hot and makes New York look like po-dunk. Or Dogpatch, as it were. The girls stop at a shrine. They are met by a delegate from Uranus who is dressed in the hooded garb of a Buddhist monk, as designed by Victoria's Secret. Oh wait, it's just Tyra. Konnichiwa! Tyra says that she brought the girls to the avant-garde fashion capital of the world, and that it's important for models to know different cultures. Norelle thinks, "I eat yogurt every day!" and is pleased with herself. Tyra says that Tokyo is home to some of the premiere fashion designers, including Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto. Before beginning their journey, the girls have to undergo a purification ritual in which they ask for protection, prosperity and good fortune from the Gods. The Gods are all, "Bitches, please." Tyra sucks in her stomach and says, "Welcome to Tokyo!"
Eva says that she appreciates the culture, as well as the opportunity to become a more well-rounded person. As the girls walk through what Yaya deems "the touristy area," someone points out Hello Kitty and Norelle screams. She interviews that she is quite excited to be in the birthplace of Hello Kitty. She takes a detour to worship at the Hello Kitty Shrine, and undergoes a purification ritual that involves wearing sixteen tiny pink backpacks. The girls enter the Fontaine Akasaka hotel, where they are instructed to take off their shoes. Foot stink ensues, mostly from Amanda. The girls -- who are expecting deluxe accommodations (this is the UPN, my friends -- keep dreaming) -- discover that they are in a capsule hotel, which Amanda (dotting the last "i" on her MENSA application ) describes as "a hotel...of capsules." She explains that a capsule is "a coffin-size cubicle...kind of like a really condensed YMCA." They basically look like cat carriers all stacked on top of each other. Each has a little shade that can be pulled down, and there is a community bathroom. Eva climbs into Ann's capsule. Don't come knockin' if the capsule is rockin'! Koko delivers some Tyra Mail. Ding, ding! Speedy delivery!
