Utagawa Kuniyoshi cat motif items from Ukiyo-e 2014 Exhibition

I rushed into Edo-Tokyo Museum. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to look around the exhibition, but I wished to get some special limited-selling cat motif items which design-based by Utagawa Kuniyoshi’s Ukiyo-e.

I got many things (far beyond I expected) at a time – plastic folders, washi-tape, hanky, metal charm, Japanese maki-e stickers, and message pad.

My wallet became empty but I was satisfied I could get all the things I love!

A skirt from Marc by Marc Jacobs

takakos closet

I got a Milly Milano Peplum skirt from Marc by Marc Jacobs.
I really love the navy color and the soft texture of wool and cotton.

Also, I like his design of the front pleats and the exposed back zipper.

Kuroneko Yamato Toy Cars

YAMATO TRANSPORT is familiar to us as the nickname of “Kuroneko Yamato”. Kuro-neko means black cat in Japanese… from their black mom cat and kitty trademark.
I’m a member of their web service in Japan, and they give me some point when I send/get baggages through using Yamato’s service. Last month I got enough points to get their gift, toy cars.
For me, it’s like finding lucky charm when I came across “Kuroneko emblem” walk-in van or fridge truck on the street.

These toy cars are amazingly look-alike to the originals, and more, the doors can be open and wheels are movable. I think I can’t throw away these boxes either.


Italian restaurant, Napule

I went to an Italian restaurant, Napule at Minami-Aoyama.

My friend and I had antipastos, 3 kinds of pizzas, meat and desserts with latte.
We were very full with very a good dinner.
