My first day living in Tokyo!
I arrived in Tokyo last night! It's so lovely to be able to call this amazing city my new home! I haven't been able to wipe the smile from my face since arriving~! My teeny tiny apartment is like living in a Barbie house! I have banged myself about a hundred times already and my Odango hair bun only just scrapes under the doorways! But it's so cute and so super sunny!
Gracie had pre-delivered a 'Hello Onigiri' welcome card, some sweet flowers and a super cute cushion to greet me when I arrived in my new apartment!
My sweet Japanese bread breakfast Hello Sandwich!
Today was such a lovely first day living in Tokyo! After wondering around my local Shimokitazawa neighbourhood I took a cab over to Setagaya-ku city hall, applied for my alien registration card and received this little Setagaya-ku arrival pack.
The pack came complete with earthquake emergency information. I love the note that points out I should 'have slippers ready'. Check!
I am completely in love with the view from my new apartment!! At night little red lights glow from the tops of buildings.
You can even spot Shinjuku from the back of the balcony!
I arrived just in time for rainy season so although I can't hang out on my teeny tiny balcony, these two super cute clothes hangers can!
Tonight's dinner: A delicious bento from my new local supermarket! (Hello Sandwich Tokyo HQ is yet to be equipped with a rice cooker and other kitchen essentials) And in a minute I am off to the local ¥180 bar! Come and visit soon Sandwiches!
