Ladies Tops from zucca

takakos closet



I got a tops from zucca at Ikebukuro Seibu department store.

The full range of colors is black, khaki, navy and light blue.
But, I got khaki one that I like.
It is very light, and easy to wear it because of the tencel fiber that is used.
Also, I like the large pockets on the sides.

I went to Les Creations de NARISAWA for my birthday lunch.


I do love ALL of his dishes, … especially charcoal fried oysters were stunning!
We could eat the crispy and good scent black coat as it is.

Long Finger-less Gloves


It’s December and the season for gloves is here! But ever since I changed my cell phone to an i phone recently, it’s really a hassle using last years gloves.


Then I bought very useful gloves that have removable fingertips for the thumb, pointer finger, and middle finger. Now I can use touch screens easily.


They are gloves from a brand called ”PUENTE”, and every single one is hand knitted by women in Bolivia.
These gloves knit from alpaca wool are not only useful, but very warm.

Rilakkuma ‘Tori’ mug from Rilakkuma Fair at Lawson Fall 2011


I got a ‘Tori’ (a yellow bird) mug from Rilakkuma fair at Lawson in Fall 2011.
Its fair had been also started from September 13, 2011 to November 7, 2011.

I’ve collected 30 points of the stickers in order to get the mug at Lawson.
The stickers were attached on targeted sweets, sandwiches and so on for a limited time at LAWSON.


The lovely ‘Tori’ mug will be one of my favorites.




I went to 10ZEN, an herbal restaurant in Shinagawa.
The dishes served at 10ZEN are all based on traditional Chinese medicine.


I had the yoga-nabe.


Consuming so many traditional medicinal ingredients is very good for the body.
After I finished eating, my body felt warm and pleasant, and I felt very calm and relaxed.


After the meal I drank a vinegar-based juice. It was very refreshing and delicious.
