When someone ask what’s the best in Tokyo? I would definitely say they have various cosmetic skincare products, great food and of course their famous pancakes! Unlike the western pancakes – a thin layer with maple syrup. I would like to introduce this lovely cafe offers pancakes that is super-fluffy and melt in your month instantly in Jiyugaoka 自由が丘- Tokyo.
A little background of Jiyugaoka before show you the inside of Flipper’s. Jiyugaoka is one of my favourite place in Tokyo. Unlike the cities, Jiyugaoka is a place where can ignored by the bustles and city crowds. There are lots of various cafes, restaurants and little shops in alleys. I love to spend my afternoon here almost 10 years ago with my boyfriend (my husband now!) while he was studying in Tokyo. There are lots of memories when I stepped here again after 10 years during my business trip! I love the ambience here, people walk slowly, relax and enjoy their time just sitting at the bench. It is a great place to chill with friends in the afternoon. Anyways, let me introduce this place in my next post and sure you will love it too! Especially it’s not far from Tokyo! (just 15 mins from Shibuya station)
Throw back to my previous Tokyo trip in Nov, we went to the Planetarium in Sunshine City. I marked this place for a long time when I heard Konica had launched this in Tokyo.
It is not only a theatre but it provides both educational / entertainment show with aromatic smells for healing experience. It is direct managed by Konica Minolta of the planetarium technology. You can enjoy and relaxed under the starry sky and aromatic smells. Because healing planetarium show is targeted for adult only, so small children are not allow for healing planetarium. So let’s see how it’s actually works.
Continue of my previous Hokkaido trip, our final stop was Tokyo. After the late arrived from Sapporo to Tokyo, I decided to visit the amazing Christmas lights in Shibuya and Shinjuku. Both are located pretty close to the JR station. So I would like to show you how lovely these are.
SPOT 1: SHIBUYA – TERRACE CITY ILLUMINATIONS
That’s the first time I experienced Tokyo’s Christmas and everywhere is full of Christmas vibes. One of the prettiest decoration would be Shibuya Terrace City. It is located in front of Lumine2 exit in Shibuya JR station. If you exit in Lumine 1 you probably might not able to see it, so beware of the correct exit.
Everywhere is decorated with thousands of little light bulbs. Just like I entered in a Pink wonderland. I think I don’t need to say much but just show you how incredible this place was. It last until 2017 Feb 14th, so don’t miss out if you will be around even early next year! I also uploaded a vlog below showed how beautiful it was.
I haven’t visit Tokyo since 6 years ago! Last year my friend and I were lucky enough to buy the low fare ticket. I took a lot of photos and sure will share to all of you! There are too much to share as this is the first post of Tokyo, I would like to pick one of my favorite place – Alice on Wednesday.
Why it named Alice on Wednesday? as the owner think Wednesday is the most boring day of the week which I don’t actually agree as I found Monday is much boring! By naming this gift store on Wednesday was aim to inject some fun and cool to every Wednesday. So Let’s see how I lost in the wonderland!
With such an amazing doors in the exterior, if you ever read Alice in wonderland story, you will find that it has successfully reproduce the world of Alice. There are 4 different sizes of doors with beautiful colors and only one has opened! There’s no rabbit lead you to inside but only the small opened door. I’m tiny enough to get in! yay!
