Saturday at Kichijoji
Saturday was another balmy, sunny day, so we decided to head to Kichijoji which is a western suburb of Tokyo. The highlight is Inokashira Park, which has a lake and temple in the middle of it, and is great for an autumn stroll and to people-watch. It is reached along a pedestrianised road flanked with lots of boutiques and restaurants, and perfect for a saturday of meandering. There were dogs of all shapes and sizes, people selling crafts, runners, cyclists and paddle boats on the lake (although beware if your lover offers to take you on one as it's reputed to be the way to tell them that you want to break up with them!).
