There is a room where is only permitted to take pictures, and we’ve found that Kaneda’s red motorbike is displayed.

We had very good time to see his handwriting pictures and drawings which are very very gorgeous.
It would certainly be worth it!

This year, the event 365 Charming Everyday Things, which brought together a years worth (365 items) of made-in-Japan everyday things, was held in Paris and Tokyo.

At the event, 365 different kinds of everyday products were on sale, last but not least of which was the event’s catalog, in the shape of a daily calendar.

I didn’t go to this event but my friend gave me the calendar as a present.

I got a couple of hair accessories from Marc by Marc Jacobs at Ikebukuro Seibu.
They are a very pretty chouchou and a band with plastic blue ribbon.

It is very difficult to see heart patterns in the chouchou, but I like it.

torta 2

torta is a soft cookie, got some hint from stroopwafel.
But it’s more soft, not chewy, and no scent of butter.
Instead of the caramel filling, vanilla, apple, and chocolate flavors are in.

Ueno zoo is my favorite place and, it is one of very popular zoos in Tokyo.
Also, it is very oldest zoo in Tokyo.

My favorite animals are the Giant Pandas and the Western lowland Gorillas.
The two new Giant Pandas have come from China in February 2011, and then, they are very popular now in Japan.
We really missed Giant Pandas because the Ueno zoo had been without Giant Pandas for a while.

There are many Pilot Shops in Ginza where you can get each prefecture’s touring information and purchase its local specialities.
Today I bought plums, dried pear, and fruit juice at a Yamagata shop.
It’s fun looking for yummy and cutely designed things.
Going around antenna shops is a simple way to enjoy the taste of touring.
