Between 21 – 27 August of 2013. Here are the photos.
Last Wednesday, I went to Jingu Stadium, a baseball field which Murakami found his inner voice to tell the world while watching the game between Swallows and Carps.
Me while heading to buy a ticket. On Wed, there was a game between Swallows vs. Giants.
Non-reserved seat in out-field ticket is 1,500 yen.
During the day, I spent time exploring the power of liberal-capitalist world at Omotesando. Omotesando is lacated near Harajuku.
This set of SK II is 30% off till the end of August! Be hurry!
Harajuki is shining in the day light. ^^
And then I headed back to the stadium. Met many huge crowed on the way who bought Beers and things to eat. You can bring food and drink to the stadium. Hooray!
Murakami once said, he drank very cold beer and the watched the blue sky. And the rest is history…
If you want to understand Japanese way of life, try to watch Baseball match.
Foodie I cooked. Rice, Saba, and stir-fried green pea.
I ordered Mocha but they served me the Americano. Anyway, this costs 500 yen.
I went to the market in the evening and found this traditional dance. So fun.
On Saturday, headed to west of Tokyo to join Hanabi. This is Oh, with her yukata, traditional Japanese dress.
The magic of Hanabi is it can bring people together. period.
With Yukiko-san, she invited us to her hometown to see Hanabi next to the Tama river.
Summer dessert! The must eat item.
People who came to see Hanabi (Firework Festival).
Good time with the crews.
Firework Festival in Japan normally runs for an hour.
Love this one, feeling like gazing the stars.
When you were young, everything seems so bright and fun.
Construction is everywhere and we are constructing our lives too.
Your expectation always mirrors in your eyes.
“Alone in Tokyo” is a Thai book. I lost it somewhere last week. Then a Thai friend brings me back from Thailand. WOW! Thank you very much.
Egg sanwich at Kayaba Coffee (www.kayaba-coffee.com) is really great one. 400 yen for the sandwich and 500 yen for the Iced Mocha.
In Tokyo, you can find many public restroom. Nice one. Nice public policy.
This area is called Yanaka. It has survived from the WW II bombing. Therefore we can still see many old buildings.
And oldie but classy flower shop. ^^
“Colorless Tiktok and Her Two Years of Pilgrimage”
All the cemeteries reminds us that life is too damn short. Let’s eat ice cream though. ><
Tokyo train systems.
Let’s take a summer walk.
The cemetery is the way home of this young boy. Ironically?
I really love this stair and secretly call it “Stairway to Stars”. ^^
This Iced Latte is really great taste and good smell. Very recommend if you are in town.
Normally, coffee in Tokyo costs around 400-600 yen. But at Yanaka Coffee Cafe, they cost not so expensive.
Yanaka Coffee Cafe is a small but really a must for coffee lovers. Visit at http://www.yanaka-coffeeten.com.
Tokyo is a friendly town for bike people.
I accidentally run to this dessert. LOVVVVVVEEEE ITTTT SOOOO MUCHHHH. 130 yen at Yanaka Ginza Market. (The market is very near Sendagi Metro station, exit 2)
Lastly, my basic courses are going to start next week. Can’t wait for it!
