How’s it going? I’m in a pretty good mood today! Today was supposed to be my back-to-work day, so I got up and headed to school as usual only to be told to go home and come back Wednesday. Actually I thought things were taking a downturn when I got to the door and realised I had forgotten my key, but I managed to climb through a window (I wonder if any of my neighbours saw) and things were fine, lol.
Finally did some hanami on Saturday! I haven’t done a proper hanami in a couple of years, since last year I wasn’t feelin’ so hot and had to go home after about half an hour.
Yoyogi-koen. Soooo many people. It’s crazy. When you’re walking through the trees you can just hear the decibels rising with every step. We had a lot of fun drinking in the trees, though.
One thing, however, I really wanted to do while I was in the area is take some pictures of my favorite shops. I have a plan to try drawing and watercoloring these later.
I’ll put them here.

Popped in here to buy a really cute necklace, actually.

Actually I never shop here, but the store front in so interesting to me.

I’ve never been in here, either, but I have an ancient picture of me in high school standing next to their sign just because of the name.

Another place I’ve never been, but I love these stairs.
I almost never go to actual Takeshita-doori because of the crowds. The last time I tried going there was a Wednesday, so I thought it would be OK, but no. Takeshita-doori is perpetually unmanageable now. And all my favorite shops have packed up and left.
Urahara is the best, though. Maybe one of my happy places.
Also popped in for a delicious burrito bowl at Guzman y Gomez.

Anyway, it was a good day. I’ll let you know how the paintings go.
Off to the night job now. Later. 🙂
