TOKYO DAY THREE: 森美術館與109辣妹的邂逅日
A Drowsy Morning
OMOTESANDO should turn on ladies’ eyes. But I don’t know why I feel so sleepy this morning. Maybe it is part of the terrible breakfast in Pronto located in the ground floor of Star Hotel building; maybe I am devoid of energy with no reason. No sooner had I walked in Omotesando Hills than I started to find the seat. Just give me one more coffee, please.
The pavement is very wide almost unobstructed; very comfortable to stroll. Well-known international luxury brands standing on both sides with distinctive architecture design increase thw aesthetic sense. Not like yesterday, today we learn to read the map; strike forward to Roppongi (六本木). Two hours later, I am really hungry and just want Japanese food only. As usual, we choose the place where we just pass by. No travel guide recommendation. I can say its aimless travel style is Ian’s style. So,
浜の家 & Afternoon Tea
浜の家 seems friendly to people work around (note 1). I order Saba(鲭) which is the leading lady’s (character by Shinohara Ryoko,篠原涼子) favorite in TV drama, ハケンの品格. Ian’s 海鮮丼is yummy. Roppongi Hills is quite closed. We have afternoon tea in the hills building, to be honest, it’s the worst coffee I have in

Evening walk starts from Ebisu(惠比壽) while it is dinner time. We decide to go uphill to Daikanyama(代官山), filled with many personalized and unique shops. Taking pictures when we find something interesting, opening your eyes to absorb what you have seen, it is not permitted to miss anything here. At 7:20 p.m., I could not walk anymore. Espresso and salmon toast supply me energy for next 20 minutes to Shibuya(澀谷), which is the cradle of fashion and vague and the youngsters gathering place. 8:30 p.m., we are finally arrive Shibuya.

What’s the else we pass by? HMV might be a good place. Ian chose 湘南乃風which he wanted to buy when bicycling in Okinawa last year, but he didn’t. We purchase Namie Amuro(安室奈美惠) DVD + CD for Ian’s cousin.

品希 V.S. 生菓子
On the way back hotel, I go for oden (おでん)in the convenience store just opposite to our hotel. Of course, beer is necessary. When we get keys from concierge, he said that someone leave me things in the counter (You could know Star hotel is not a renewable hotel, they use key!!!). It’s Omiyage(生菓子) from 品希, my Durham schoolmate. We had a wonderful time in
