The very first roll of film of the new year is from a wonderful day I had with lovely Maria. On a very cold but beautiful day, starting off at Nakameguro station we walked through to Daikanyama and back to Nakameguro for a nice warm lunch, a quick train ride to Gakugeidaku for more strolling around taking photos and visiting my favourite shops and then popping on the bus to show her the mina perhonen shops (seriously my very favourite shops in Tokyo) finishing off with nice cups of hot chocolate. What a jolly good day it was and I was so happy to meet another of my lovely blog friends! Danke maria :)

  1. Hi! I miss Tokio soo much. I was there only once in my life and for just 3 days (too short). It's lovely to visit your blog and see your pictures/tips with special places I would have probably never encounter on my own. Thanks for sharing. :-)

    just hearing those little city names is so natsukashii since they were the train stops to toritsudaigaku!!

    ooh, i had a small story to tell you Hiki san!
    yesterday and my job, i was helping a Japanese customer and she asked me why i can speak Japanese well, and i told her about my experiences and also that i was staying in Toritsudaigaku... and it turns out that since she has been living in Hawaii for 11 years now, she was born and raised in Toritsudaigaku too!!!! she was soooo bukkuri and happy when i told her, she was jumping up and down smiling! HAHAH it was sooo special and happy moment :-)
