pouch and charm from Marc by

I got a metal bird adds whimsical charm to a leather key pouch & citrus charm pony bands from Marc by Marc Jacobs.
These are birthday gifts from my sis.
I am in love with this little bird. The touch of this leather is great, soft and supple!
Gold-tone brass citrus slice charms of pony bands are lovable! Thank you for the gifts and thank you for being my sis.

Tanzaburo

I went to a soba noodle restaurant called Tanzaburo in Okutama.

The restaurant is a remodeled old house, and has great atmosphere.

There is a heated table set in the middle of the room, and it is very relaxing.

I ordered the tempura soba set meal.
The handmade soba noodles were very chewy.
The tempura made from seasonal vegetables was very delicious.

I went to a restaurant called KOBAIEN in Ome.

Ome is a place famous for Japanese apricots. Right now, it’s the Japanese apricot season and it was bustling with people.
Next to the restaurant too, the flowers of a red Japanese apricot tree were blooming.

This restaurant is famous for 葛きり(kudzu starch noodles).

I ate chilled 葛きり dipped in Japanese apricot sauce.
It was slightly sweet-and-sour and was very delicious.

I got a Normandy blue green printed silk dress from Marc by Marc Jacobs at Shibuya Seibu department store.
It is a very pretty feminine dress, and I love the elegant cut slightly A-line and puffy short sleeves. I want to wear with boots or booties.
