Halloween kitties’ illustration is from old Hallmark greeting card. And Classic Japanese cat was drawn for famous and beautiful vintage magazine “Kodomo no Kuni” (means children’s land) by the artist Yoshio Shimizu.
Casual and useful art pieces in my hands.

And, we enjoyed their layout and presentation of the food. Also, we really appreciated their cordial hospitality.
We were very glad to spend a great time.

Medetaiyaki

I got Medetaiyaki and Medetaiyaki Tenugui (traditional cotton towel) after waiting in line in Kabukiza.

Medetai means like happy, joy or congrats, and you know taiyaki is sea bream shaped Japanese sweets. Medetai+taiyaki=Medetaiyaki sounds happy for Japanese. And more, sweet bean-paste with red (pink) and white mochi dumpling in the tummy of it! Red and white are also happy colour for us. The shop is only for Kabukiza, of course it is very popular and good.

And Medetaiyaki tenugui is so cute!! I love the pattern of the towel… one of Medetaiyaki shows its mochi dumplings from tummy.

We could enter there after 1 hour. I like cute and cheap items at there. I got many funny goods – panther eye mask, strawberry eco bag, apple paper napkins, cat-house shaped boxes… and more.

The red bean paste was came with the shaved ice, however, my friend chose to top with condensed milk. And, I chose to top with ice cream. I really love the Matcha shaved ice. However, we surprised with the shaved ice which was incredibly soft.

Now Glico is collaborating with Star Wars, for my opinion, some of the products are boring for me (sorry!) but this R2-D2 chocolate box is very cute!

I chose head-moving version from 4 kind of packages. Silhouetted droids were designed on wrapping foils, and you’d find R2 and C-3PO cartoon in the bottom of the box. I can’t throw away this box after eat up all chocolate candies!!

Before we took a train for Ito, we bought lunch at Tokyo station
where there are a lot of shops and restaurants. We chose sandwiches, a
hotdog and tenmusu (small rice balls with shrimp tempura).

We were busy to have the lunch because it took about 1 hour and a half to
until arrival of Ito. We had very fun time and good lunch.
