Aogaki is a Japanese Cuisine restaurant at Aobadai, on the bed town and outskirt of Tokyo or Kanagawa.

But the place is worth going, all the small dishes are delicious and beautiful.
And you can choose low chair Japanese room. It’s much easier than sit on zabuton cushion on tatami if you haven’t have an experience.

The garden was a little too crowded, we need to wait to enjoy matcha tea time in the middle of bamboo garden. But as you can imagine from my photos, it was worth for waiting. :)

The teahouse made us feel nostalgic. We had wonderful time with Chinese tea and sweet.

Then we queued for tako-senbei (octopus cracker). The sea around there is not very clear but the sea wind makes me feel comfortable.

We had the New England clam chowder at the restaurant for lunch. We were able to have their breads as much as we want. Everything was good. We enjoyed the wonderful foods with a nice atmosphere.
We didn’t forget to buy some bakeries and pastries at the bakery shop next door on the way home.
