Soba Yusui

I walked around Jindai-temple. Around the temple is famous for soba restaurants.
There’s over 20 small soba speciality restaurants, tourists are looking forward to come there to enjoy soba, at the same time to visit temple.

Yusui (湧水) is one of them, the name of restaurant means like spring water, so that reminds us soba plate made from clear tasty water.
Their soba plate was good, and someday I would like to try other restaurants around there too!

My sister and I took an overnight trip to Hakone in Kanagawa pref.
Before we checked in a hotel, we stopped by the Hakone Open-Air Museum where was opened in 1969 as the first open-air art museum in Japan.

We enjoyed to look at a lot of sculptures on the ground under the blue sky.
Also, we saw Picasso collections such as paintings, prints and potteries at Picasso Pavilion.
After we had a lunch at the museum, we headed toward the hotel.

La Vieille France

The confectionery shop in outskirt of Setagaya filled with atmosphere of “good old days of France”.

Their cakes and ice cream are not trendy but has down-to-earth beauty and really good taste.
I had orange cream Chiboust, and my friend had pistachio cake.

We were greed enough adding their rose and raspberry ice cream with these cakes.
