This winter Tokyo is cold, but I’m lucky enough – I could had a chance to order one-of-a-kind arm warmers to a stunning artist miquraffreshia!
My request was “colorful galaxy (or aurora) in the dark black sky”.

I LOVE this fluffy galaxy, so happy to go out with these! It’s really funny and good my arms looks like some kind of spacey-animals!

I got a stripes top from Marc by Marc Jacobs.
It curved seams add subtle contour to the boxy silhouette.
I love the graphic logo patch details the hip. I’m sure it will match with my skirts and jeans.

They always serves good seasonal dishes. This time I had good lasagna with soft-boiled egg and my mom chose crab spaghetti.

We were not “very” hungry so chose inexpensive course, still we were full and satisfied with their dishes.

Finally Mister Donut’s cute character “Pon de Lion” became edible.
Of course his mane is made of “pon de ring” doughnut, and his face is made of chocolate plate. Under the plate is tiny cream-filled doughnut.

He’s so sweet as his cute face!!

The course came with liver pate, the assortment of special skewers ( 8 kinds), grilled chicken with ‘sansho’ spice, cabbage flavored truffle and salt, grilled cheese and chicken and egg rice bowl.

It was very fun to have a lot of kinds of the Yakitori.
And also, they were wonderful taste. I love the Yakitori sauce which was appetizing smell.
