mikoshiThough I did go to Vietnam and you've been seeing so much of it recently on my blog, I was still spending most of September in Tokyo. Actually there's quite a lot I have done after coming back from my holidays.

One of the most exciting events was meeting up with lovely Stephanie who is temporarily living in Tokyo. On one beautiful Sunday afternoon, we did a good strolling around in the neighbourhoods around Daikanyama. Curry and Yebisu(beer) at Bombay Bazar, looking at some nice little shops including the fabulous fabric shop I had been longing to go to (who didn't want us taking photos of, hence no shop info here. well i took these photos before we were asked to stop.), stopping for some Japanese sweets in Nakameguro, then we walked all the way up to Ebisu passing a live mikoshi parade from a nearby shrine festival. A beautiful fuschia sky greeted us when we reached at the Ebisu Garden Place and that was a perfect finish to our long (and lovely) afternoon walks. My photo didn't come out so well but do check out Stephanie's from this post!
