LovePlus the game character Nene Anegasaki became a HALLS promotion girl.




She wears HALLS logo printed mini skirt and appears terminal stations (I saw her in Shinjuku) and say to you (yes, you’re her BF!) “Open your mouth <3″!
Her space getting narrow, still she try to pass you a candy…

A Short Trip to Okinawa 17

Tea break at Yachimun kissa-Shisa-en:2



The Shisa is a traditional figure of Okinawa that is resembling a cross between a lion and a dog.
People usually placed pairs of Shisa on their rooftops or flanking the gates to their houses.
Shisa are wards, believed to protect from some evils.

A Short Trip to Okinawa 16

Tea break at Yachimun kissa-Shisa-en:1



We went to “Yachimun kissa-Shisa-en” where was Okinawa cafe for dessert after the lunch.
We definitely recommend to have a seat at the 2nd floor because of the scenery of the beautiful Okinawa mountains from the unglazed windows.
Also, it is fun to see a lot of the Shisa on the roof.


We had a very relaxed time with Okinawa original sweets, “Chinpin” was a crape with Okinawa brown sugar.
We enjoyed the natural sweetness.

German online store “koshka” sells clothes and other products made by Japanese designers.
There is also a lot of clothing designed by one of our favorites, Tsumori Chisato.
Their website has also made available a 10% off coupon code (LOVE8TOKYO) for 8tokyo.com readers.
It only lasts until next month, so don’t hesitiate!


Lunch at Ufuya



We went to have a lunch, “Ufuya” where was an Okinawa food restaurant.
“Ufuya” is using an old folk house that was built at least 100 years ago.


We’ve had a “Ufuya-Soba set”. We had the Okinawa noodle, mixed rice with
some ingredients, tofu and pickles.
I put a lot of “benishouga” that was red-pickled ginger into the noodle that
made a refreshing taste, and also stimulated my appetite.
