I got one of the latest LOOK chocolate, “kiwami matcha“.
kiwami” means like ultimate, highfalutin a little…

This matcha chocolate was very tasty, but to be honest, it was not close to “ultimate” for me.

Dashichazuke is rice with dashi (Japanese soup stock) poured over it.
And, I chose the dashichazuke with toppings such as uba and grilled spicy pollack roe that was very good.

I’ve waited so long for the new collection of Star Jewelry’s clear acrylic jewelry series.
5 years ago, I got a sun and moon bangle, and always put it on when I go out. Finally they released the latest collection this summer!

The soft and fluffy bagel is made of rice.

The lovely cafe uses domestically-produced fresh vegetables.
I enjoyed the fresh watercress and apple juice with the bagel sandwich.

Special limited Kiki & Lala floral honeybee tote bag

8tote collaborated with Little Twin Stars, for their special limited pop-up store in Osaka and Hukuoka!

One of a way of reading of “8″ is “hachi” in Japanese, the pronunciation is same as “bee”, and also 8 is a lucky number in Japan.
Mitsubachi (honeybee) tote” is maybe little too long for non-Japanese speaker, so the brand name became 8tote outside Japan, like a wordplay! :)

That’s also the reason why Kiki & Lala wearing honeybee costume here. The pop-up store theme is “floral”, so they are enjoying spring with cute flower fabric and little honeybees on this tote bag.

Because of they are hiding inside, you’ll meet them only when you open the bag… It’s like friends in a secret garden!

Ginza Kimuraya Restaurant

きむらや1

My friend and I went to Ginza Kimuraya restaurant for a dinner.

We had ‘Ginza stew’ which was very popular menu at the restaurant.
Two large blocks of cheek meats of Japanese black beef were cooked in the stew.
We got a surprise about the meat tenderness of the cheek meats. They melted in our mouth so quick.

Also, we were able to have a variety of their breads as much as we wanted.
We enjoyed their very good breads with the stew to look out of the large window next to us.
