I went there for just visiting, however, fortunately I was able to see the Shinto-style wedding. It looks very traditional Japanese style! We seemed to be transported back in time to the Edo era.

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.

SENDAGI walk 2:C.A.G.


C.A.G. is a hat shop where your friend Gris (a nickname) both designs and hand-manufactures hats. Her hats are sold at fine retailers such as Shinjuku ISETAN MEN’S and even Barneys New York GINZA.


Since she originally worked for an advertising agency, she is sensitive to the latest trends and movements around the world.


She is very stylish, and it is fun to go chat with her in her shop.


YEBISU GARDEN PLACE Winter Illuminations


The other day, I went to YEBISU GARDEN PLACE with a friend.


All the trees were lit up, creating truly magical scenery.



A huge Baccarat chandelier was displayed in the center of the square.


The chandelier was amazing, giving the impression that it was floating in the air.
