Saturday at Shimokitzawa
Saturday was a gorgeously hot, sunny day and after doing food shopping in our local supermarket, we decided to head out to Shimokitzawa to check it out. It is only four stops on the Keio Inokashira line and has a great laid back feel to it with tiny roads to meander down and take in. There are loads of independent cafes and bars, shops selling vintage clothes and furniture, as well as the 100 yen shops - just like the pound stores in England! It was great to spend a few hours there and we are thinking of heading back there for brunch some time, to try out some of the cafes. Saturday evening was fun as we had our first guest round for dinner - miss Keiko! She brought a gorgeous chocolate cake with her, welcoming us to Japan. We had a fab time, and it was even cool enough to sit out on the balcony, but we drank too much wine and my head was hurting today!
