Tokyo, Relaxing Museum Sento

This is a beauty! It’s perfect, only the hot water is missing. Public spa (sento) “Kodakara-yu” was originally built in 1929 in Adachi Ward. Now it is located in the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum in Tokyo.


Tokyo, Starnet

My favorite ceramics store Starnet is located in the Nihonbashi district in Tokyo. The ceramic objects are beautifully shaped. They sell also clothes, chopsticks, tea and coffee. The concept of the shop is well thought out.

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
