SENDAGI walk 3:Lemon no mi


”Lemon no mi” is a small, counter seating only restaurant with a set menu.


The daily lunch specials and the pastries are delicious.


All the food there is good, so anyone you bring along will find something they like.


The owner and chef is also talented at making stuffed animals and arranging bouquets, so they sometimes hold events on the second floor.

Les Creations de NARISAWA 2


Not only dishes, but even butter was feast of our eyes.
Whipped butter was in the flowerpot. Brown earth was made by black olive powder.




The dessert wagon was so beautiful – artistic autumn was there!
The waiter smiled and said you can choose anything, or ALL!

I went to Les Creations de NARISAWA for my birthday lunch.


I do love ALL of his dishes, … especially charcoal fried oysters were stunning!
We could eat the crispy and good scent black coat as it is.

I went to 10ZEN, an herbal restaurant in Shinagawa.
The dishes served at 10ZEN are all based on traditional Chinese medicine.


I had the yoga-nabe.


Consuming so many traditional medicinal ingredients is very good for the body.
After I finished eating, my body felt warm and pleasant, and I felt very calm and relaxed.


After the meal I drank a vinegar-based juice. It was very refreshing and delicious.
