My Shimokita Apato! 下北沢 アパート!

Photobucket



Hello Sandwiches!

eeeep! I found my new Shimokita apartment! It's teeny tiny Tokyo style but lovely and sunny and super close to the station and walking distance to my dear friend Gracie's apartment! I found it on Forrent (special thanks to Google Translate). I can't wait to get there next week and start filling it with cute things!

  13. Mummysando says don't fill it with too too many cute things because our attic roof might fall in if we have to store any more hellosandwich treasures in the future!!!!

  49. Welcome to Tokyo!

    Your artwork & blog is soooooooo KAWAII, and I love it!
    ...and, last year, I read your blog entry "tokyo-potted-garden".
    I was taking photos of potted gardens, so I named my photo works "the Tokyo Potted Gardens".
    :) ha ha ha.
