Tokyo, Tsutaya Books

Tsutaya Books bookstore in the Daikanyama area is an adults’ playground for one day. It consists of three buildings and there are many cafes and restaurants. The concept is very addictive. Tsutaya Books is located in the neighbourhood, along with  many small shops for clothes.

A Carioca - Café

Lisbon, A Carioca – Café

Coffee, chocolate and tea. This roastery has been around since 1930 and its art deco interior has survived to the present day. The mood is right.

Nippori Fabric Town

Tokyo, Nippori Fabric Town

A few steps from the Nippori Station to the east begins the Fabric Town. There are many fabric shops located around Nippori Chuo dori street. The Tomato fabric shop has many spaces along the street, and it’s product offering is extensive. They have Kokka, Nani Iro, Japanese linen, cotton and denim, quilted fabrics and colorful patterns. Highly recommended! Don’t miss the upper floors! Also Cotton Yasuda is worth visiting for cotton and linen.

Tokyo, Kiddy Land

How kawaii! Egg yolk soft toy Gudetama begs for my attention while Kirimi salmon fillet waves from the beauty box cover. Kiddy Land is filled with Japanese characters and noise. It’s a must to visit, but it’s great to get out from the shop and relax on Harajuku’s streets.

Tokyo, Sakura in Asagaya

I like! Simple tastes. These bananas were bought from a pop up market in Asagaya. Local people gathered in the park to enjoy their picnic and admire the sakura. We had a chance to enjoy Ohsamcook play the accordion and sing. Also a local boxing hall owner gave a colorful performance. Our friends at the picnic offered us marinated quail eggs.READ MORE

Paris, Clown Bar

Lovely dessert with almond, mousse and raspberry ice cream. I wish I would know how to make that!

Paris, Papier Tigre

Paper with a vision. Notebooks, gift papers and calendars. They also have Macon & Lesquoy’s hand embroidered jewels, which are seen in the photos. Just perfect.
