Night Aquarium

Ordinary days, Enoshima Aquarium open 9am to 5pm. Now they’re holding a special program named “Night Aquarium”, closing time is extending until 8pm.

Huge fish tank and jellyfish hall collaborate with beautiful 3D projection mapping movie and music. These are outstanding, BUT it’s too crowded on weekends.

We escaped away from the crowd to have some cute snacks. We had “jiggly blue jelly” and “fish nuggets”. Both of these were fun to eat.

They provided us very good foods with reasonable prices. It seems to be always crowded with a lot of people.
They have an English menu that might help foreign tourists.

Mille-Feuille from Mille-Feuille Maison

Mille-Feuille_1

I’ve found a new shop of Mille-Feuille at Matsuya-Ginza.
The beautiful shop, Mille-Feuille Maison is specialty for Mille-Feuille that was made by collaboration between Matsuya-Ginza and France.

Mille-Feuille_2

I chose their limited edition seasonal flavor such as orange and strawberry.
Both Mille-Feuille were very good fancy sweets.

Another one is not only selling at Harajuku branch, but all of Kamawanu shops. The beautiful hand dyed design named “rain”. This tenugui is only selling at rainy day. It’s very poetic.
