February in Tokyo

Mr Y has been making these incredible wholemeal rolls.

Afternoons in Shimokitazawa.

A found beer can by the fumikiri (train tracks crossing). From next month Shimokitazawa station will be underground which breaks my heart a little.

This is my current favourite lunch in Tokyo! All of the details for this cute place and many many more are, you guessed it, in my new Hello Sandwich Tokyo Guide! This lunch + a fancy coffee was only ¥1150!

Popped into Aiko Fukawa-san's exhibition in Daikanyama! I seriously wanted every one of her works!

Especially this cute dark one!

How adorable is Aiko-san!

Sunny lunch dates at Hello Sandwich HQ.

When you live in a mini-me Tokyo apartment you have to get creative with your sentaku. Nowhere else to hang this table cloth to dry but off the window railings.

Just an ordinary afternoon in Shimokita. But still makes my heart giddy.

How awesome is it that it's legal to drink on the streets in Tokyo! Roadies Shinjuku style with two cool Tokyo boys.

Best omiyage pack from NYC!

  1. Lucky Valentine recipients – those cards and stamps are gorgeous. Great-looking wholemeal rolls and lunch platters! Adore the mint green wall and planters too, but I LOVE the Coffee Drip Bag most of all.

  12. Looks like a lovely Valentine's Day. Love the very kawaii presentation of the food - very Japenese.
    Those pictures of Shimokitazawa bring back so many memories of my trip to Tokyo - I went to Shimokitazawa after looking at pictures on your blog and I can officially say it is the best suburb in Tokyo.
    Love your blog,

    by the way i just read your interview for frankie magazine! really inspiring, and it has made me nostalgic .. i went straight to my bookshelf to find your first tokyo guide i bought in summer 2010 (the one of 40 pages that looks like a scrapbook)! so now i'm flipping through the pages and missing that time when i could use it ♥ ♥
